25 December – Timetables
Though I think every year: don’t do so many crazy things during Christmas! It always turns out differently. I decided to stay at my mom all Christmas because it’s so lonely without my father and not to go to my family in law and eat. Yes, I wanted to see them: but over coffee. But I forget every year again that my family in law eat on different times. And with different I mean that I’m used to eat during Christmas at ‘normal’ dinner times or ‘restaurant’ times. But since Christmas is the same as a Sunday, they eat at 3 o’clock. And that finally means you need to get yourself a timetable to get everything scheduled to keep everybody happy (and to see everybody). I actually couldn’t care this year what people would think, but I still wanted to see my family in law as well. And this meant for me this year: sitting at the diningtable but not eating anything. But that was fine! (I mean: I wanted it that way) but everybody was enjoying their food and we talked a bit. My little cousin was dancing in his playpen and we were able to see the family, chat with them, hug my sister in-law and give advice about studying to my other sister in-law.
At home we had raclette dinner and my glasses were all greasy of this festive meal. We mostly talked, laughed and at the end of the evening I was giving manicures.
We had magnificently scheduled our timetables because we have seen and spoken to everybody, without hurting any people’s feelings.
Het was kortom een Kerst zoals hij hoort te zijn: samenzijn met mensen waar je van houdt.
PS Last picture are my nails with a silver glitter French manicure.
