I’ll start where I left off last time, my vacation. We went to the festival of Ghent and had a bit of luck with the weather. It didn’t rain (probably the only day it didn’t). We had a good time although the festival wasn’t as good as usual in my opinion, it missed that magical atmosphere. We did meet up with some colleagues already there and I also ran into Inge, it had been ages since I saw her so that was awesome
The rest of the vacation was as predicted: rainy. It’s still like that even, we really didn’t have a summer at all which kinda sucks. I even bought a great barbecue finally but doesn’t look like we’ll have a chance to use it
Talking about buying stuff we also bought our new furniture. 2 big closets, 1 low closet, a new dining table (big enough for gaming of course ) and a small table for in the sitting room. It’s probably not 100% what we both wanted but that was impossible to find. We didn’t get new chairs yet though, that will be an even more difficult choice
I’m back at work now for the past 2 weeks and it’s been hectic and that won’t change for the next week. I did go to London unexpectedly and before you ask, no I didn’t notice anything of the riots. I guess we were in the good part of the city. I did manage to finalize everything for the USA trip with some great help from my colleagues, final booking will be in the coming week. Yes !
So to conclude let’s talk about the geek stuff ! The guys and I have leveled our geekiness trait, we started playing good old fashioned Dungeons & Dragons. We had a session at some friends of Bouw to introduce us and we all loved it. Benny was kind enough to volunteer (well with a little bit of nudging ) to be the Dungeon Master so we’re off to a good start ! Next week we’ll have our first session, very curious how that will go !
I also ordered the Blizzcon livestream again for this year so that should be great to watch as well ! I really hope they’ll come up with a Diablo 3 release date though, it’s about time !
Tonight Katrien and I are going out to dinner, Finn is staying over at his aunt so it’s time for mommy & daddy to have some “our” time
