If you are a regular reader of my blog, you know I’ve been posting new updates approximately every two weeks for the past few years. So the fact that my last post was over 6 weeks ago deserves a bit of an explanation.
12 years ago I bought a two bedroom appartement in a small vilage in the Netherlands. Back then this appartement had more than enough room for me and all of my hobbies. Now, 12 years later, this appartement is occupied not only by me but also my beautiful wife and two awesome sons. Great to see how much your life can change for the better in 12 years time.
Although the appartement is big enough for 2 adults and 2 kids, it isn’t ideal. There is no garden for the kids to play and my hobbies are now limited to a small desk in the livingroom which is strictly supervised for tidiness by my wife and is often raided by my two boys. As you might understand, I’m really longing for my own space.
Because of this, we decided to sell the appartement and buy a new house. And even though it took us over one and a half year to sell it and find a new suitable house, we are now on the verge of the next step in our lives as grown ups: we bought a real house! With a garden … and more importantly (for me at least), my own 15 m² office / makerspace!
Of course this is great news. But also a bit scary. Since the house is built back in 1935 and wasn’t really modernised in the past 84 year, it requires a “bit” of work. But even though it’s scary, it will definitely make up for some awesome projects I can blog about.
For now, this change means I have a lot of work doing all the paperwork, packing up our stuff and planning the big renovations (next to my regular day job). This does mean I currently don’t have a lot of time for hobby projects to blog about. I will do my best to keep the MagicMirror² project maintained and post some Instagram pictures every now and then. But over here on my blog it might be a bit more quiet than usual.
Don’t worry, it won’t be a permanent goodbye. And I might even post some irregular updates. So make sure to check my blog every now and then. Or follow me on Twitter and Instagram to be alerted whenever I’m (temporary) back on track.
For now: Have a great summer and hope to see you soon!
TLDR; Life gets in the way. BRB.
