Socks have been knit, a Clapotis has been knit (and then promptly forgotten at Mam's in Germany ...), we stopped house-hunting and instead found a lovely rental!
We're officially moving today! Our very own place for the first time in 3.5 years!!! No more one-room living, no more sharing, lots of space and privacy! Yaaaaaay! Our new home is a ginormous 2-bed apartment smack in the centre of Hoofddorp - my work commute is reduced by almost 1 hour each way, and DH will be a mere 20-minute drive from his office rather than "45 mins in theory but 2-3 hours in practice". He is self-employed and usually works at home but he drives to the office/research centre several times a week, often at short notice. An afternoon appointment often meant spending a whole day on the road - crazy. But that's all history now.
I will have my very own craft corner/desk, so I can finally pick up my hobbies again, it's going to be lovely! As I also have a new job within the company since 1 Jan which comes with a bit more responsibility/management, I'll see how much time I have the next couple of weeks ... But there's always my long week-ends, I still work 4-day weeks :-)
Life is pretty good these days!
