Saying good-bye

Sunday, 22 November 2015

For those of you who follow me on Instagram, this will not come as a surprise... 2015 was quite the year for me - home wise. I did indeed decide to move !

Searching for a new home was quite the nerve-wracking experience (more on that another time), but in the end I did find an amazing new place. So selling my beloved "old" apartment turned out to be less painful than I'd imagined... But still, I lived there for over 10 years. It's the reason I started this blog. It's the place where I feel that I really became a (more or less) responsible adult. So before I start posting about my already much loved new home, I feel like I need to close this chapter and do one last post to honour my lovely 1950s flat.

Let's do one last tour, shall we ? I'm using the photos I took for the real estate ad (no, I didn't go through an estate agent - if you saw their "professionalism" over here in Brussels, you wouldn't either...). So everything is looking very much at it's best. Just imagine a bunch of stuff and a cat herd behind from where the pictures are taken...

Ok. I'll shut up now.

Enjoy.














And just for kicks (and to document every last bit for eternity), here's also my ad text :

And now I'm ready for new adventures in a 19th century garden flat !

    1. Thanks Mieke ! It feels weird looking at those photos. It's like somebody else's flat ... I've only moved two weeks ago, but I already feel very much at home in my new place. And much more energized to start blogging again ;-)
