So life has been pretty hectic over the last year or so. Holidays and some other fantastic personal experiences mixed with some more amazing highs and soul crushing lows.
The lows thankfully got outweighed by the highs bit there simply wasn't any reason for the lows...but that's sometimes how depression works.
Anyway last February (2016) I made the decision we were going to move much closer to my workplace. Despite a new car - being much more comfortable, didn't negate the hour-plus commute each way every day.
As we have been renting for years we never considered we'd actually buy our own home, but Colin (after 8 years in the same job) was successful in getting a new job...but not only that it was working for one of the U.K's largest sportswear retailers and it was mere miles from my own place of work.
So that settles it! We were relocating to our work locality at long last! But what started as looking to rent, turned into a search to buy after one rental viewing turned sour.
By the time September rolled around we had been to Chicago again, another successful GearBlastUK and we we're about to visit Munich for our first GearBlastEU! Most importantly though, we had the key to our own home and big plans were afoot.
Now we are five months in and the first project is almost complete....and what do you expect but the first room to be decorated but the playroom!?!
Next will be the lounge and then the hallway, bathrooms, kitchen and finally the other bedrooms.
Meanwhile I've ticked off two ambitions. I've gotten over my apprehension about swimming and can now swim whole lengths front and back, and I'm learning German. Maybe one day I'll get in the water in a full wetsuit in Germany speaking fluently to the locals.
Anyway the reason I'm writing this post, is because I've been asked to detail how I made the bondage table, and after writing the steps, I realised it would be best shown off in a blog post and then others can make their own.
That will be next time though so until then enjoy the few photos and wrote something.
