Hi Stitchawl! I'm great! Life couldn't be better!

I've started working part time so I can go back to school. I'm taking evening classes, in a couple of years time I'll be a licensed pâtissière! Also my boyfriend and I have bought a piece of land and will start building our own house very soon So lots of changes

I just thought it was time to start posting on MR again. I started reading a lot more recently, and there's no better way to find new books than here. Also, everyone here is so nice, especially in this thread. I really missed it.

How have you been? I read in the diet thread that you lost a lot of weight. Congrats!

Hi Iridal - nice to see things are going well for you. Land ownership?! Next thing you know you'll be turning respectable...

Black coffee in my cup.

I already am!

Nah, classic case of 'brick in the stomach' (that's what we call it in Belgium, 'baksteen in de maag'). Every Belgian is born with it.

In my cup: fresh mint tea

I'm perusing your post with a very small glass of rum in hand, and enjoying what I'm seeing!

Thanks! In fact, the weight is still coming off me, although I'm no longer working at it so hard. But still exercising daily and eating smaller portions, and feeling better than I've felt in years! Busy riding and reading, crafting and computers... eating strange foods and taking pictures. Working on our plans to move this summer... Things are going along perfectly on this side of the pond too! I'm looking forward to hearing more about this boyfriend/new land/home building plan! Fill us in. I'm assuming that the boyfriend is the same one you left us for last year. We saw a quick snapshot at the time.

Still the same one We moved in very quickly after we started dating. Our apartment is fabulous, but the neighbourhood is not so nice. We live next to a Turkish restaurant, in the summer we can't sleep with our windows open because of all the noise. Last summer we had to yell at them every night so they would shut up and we could get some sleep. There's also a student pub right across from where we live, and they also make lots of noise.

So we decided to move, but then thought it was stupid to rent another apartment elsewhere. We both have enough experience with relationships to know and feel that this one can last for many many years. So we decided to buy a house. And then couldn't find one that met all our requirements
All of the sudden we found this perfect piece of land. About 700 m². Very rural, lots of trees and pastures. Very quiet as well. We talked to most of our future neighbours, and they were all so friendly and nice. So we bought it and are now working on the design of our house Hopefully we can start building this year. We're going to do most of the interior work ourselves, so it'll take a couple of years to complete. But I'm already looking forward to having our very own vegetable garden!

We've only been together for 1 years and 3 months, so there is some risk involved. But life would be so boring if you don't take a risk every now and then, right?

You ask this question to a guy who rides motorcycles every day, jumps off cliffs with a parachute, goes scuba diving to take photos of sharks, and wanders around in the jungles of S.E. Asia?!?

If you risk nothing, you gain nothing. Life is either a daring adventure... or nothing.

Sounds great Iridal! Looks like things are really working out for you but are you sure he is not just after your pastry skills?

Sounds great Iridal. I am thrilled that you are so happy.

Keemun in my cup. I have some tea from Tea Gschwender waiting at home. I can't wait to try the rooibos chocolate mint and the match latte. The Bancha refill is appreciated.

Well ... He sure is a big fan of pastry (imagine him nearly jumping up and down when I come home from class with a bag full of sugary goodies). But I'm pretty sure that's not the only reason he likes me

Lucas is doing great. There are pictures somewhere in the thread from Christmas time. He is growing like mad. Six months old and 21 pounds 6 ounces. Cute little dude too. And he has teeth. It is kind of nuts.

Hi, Iridal. Good to see you.

The sun came out today for a little while, and it hasn't rained. That constitutes are GREAT day on the Wet Coast. So, I'm celebrating with a cup of Keemun Xian Zhen.
