The New Club

Posted on May 24th, 2010 in Journal2 Comments

I/We just joined a new club. No, not the Freemasonry, The Knights Templar or the Illuminati, but rather the biggestof them all: the house-owner club. Yes, you are reading this clearly: we just bought a house.

We signed papers on Tuesday last week already and kept it kind of secret for a few days to land on our feet (we were sky-high). So now we are moving in sometime in August. Luckily when we moved from our big flat to the current smaller flat, we couldn’t get everything out of their boxes, so half of our stuff is still boxed up in the attic. That will make moving a bit easier.

Fact about the house, you ask ? Well, it’s something like this:

  • size: 180m2 (1940 sq. feet)
  • 4 bedrooms
  • 2 bathrooms
  • 3 floors + attic that needs isolating and decorating
  • the forest with a lake to swim in is about 1 km away (0.6 miles)
  • closest beach to go swimming is about 2.2 km away (1.4 miles)

But mind you that the forest has been my mountainbiking playground for the last 10 years, so I know my way around there. And there are a few running tracks. One of them is provided with lights for the dark winter days. And they told me that if there is enough snow, they make tracks for cross country skiing. Maybe time to start with that as well, cause I think the kids will probably get interested in that coming winter now they are old enough.

As they say: “A whole new chapter is about to begin.”
