My best friend Menno took a ballsy decision a few weeks ago. He'd been working as a contractor in the field of landscaping and such for a few years, but desk work really wasn't what he enjoyed. So he decided to make a 180 to follow his dream ^_^ He quit his job and moved back home, so he could dedicate all of his time training and exercising for a job with the royal dutch navy. Stupidly enough I've forgotten the real name for it, but he's trying to get into the commando programme.
So we spent yesterday moving all of his stuff back home and into storage. We had fun, we had exercise, we had good coffee and we drove around in a big truck through snow. All in all, it was a very good day :D Also, our allergies combined with copious amounts of dust spawned the now immortal Monster Dance, which is quite similar to this (no I didn't make that graphic myself). Don't ask... It's a long story... I'm just very happy that even after about twenty years we can still flawlessly connect :3
On the home front, things are working out nicely for our own move into new living space. Next wednesday we'll the hand-over will take place and we can get started on cleaning and decorating the place. About 80% of our stuff is already in boxes, ready to be moved over there. Unfortunately we've run into a few minor setbacks/delays (our new furniture will be delivered at the start of Feb and our new cable and Internet connection will be patched up halfway Feb), but I hope that's the last of it.
I do still have the feeling that we're forgetting to take care of a lot of things, but I guess that's inherent of the whole "moving and buying a new house" deal.
