A quick "excursus" on the situation here at Maison de Stuff.
By the looks of it, I am the only one posting, albeit quite rarely now, here at "La Maison". We had a previous crisis like this one in the past, I guess that all the organized Social Networks around the globe took away a lot of the appeal of using the message board first (feature now dead) and slowly also the blog posts have been slowed down to an halt.
I am no better, as I have also stopped writing, for several reasons.
Anyways, for you guys still interested in what Lox's been up to, the move to the new apartment is now over, will post some pictures after I come back from the next trip that I have to Asia. I like the new place, a choice with the heart, rather than the mind, as the house is quite far from Florence and I have to get used to the distances that I need to cover to get to places that were "technically" down the road before.
So, you would say, after a mandatory time spent unpacking and sorting out the new place, the famous "New Chapter" is about to start, the first few paragraphs written down in a trembling calligraphy as you usually get when writing on a fresh new book.
Well, the answer is YES and NO.
Yes, new things have started. No, some parts of the old life are still pulling my shirts and dragging me down (or back) as they need to be sorted.
These parts have a more precise name, previous landlord and deposit money. Instead of doing something "not nice", i.e. not pay the last two months of rent as the landlords have my deposit in their hands, I paid what was due in full. Now after they got the keys back the quarrel started on a couple of points on the walls that have shades of furniture that was there and stuff like this, so basically the argument is now about having to repaint some of these "issues" that arose from living in the place.
I won't go into the details as they are really boring, but I really really hope that the whole thing does not escalate to a full fledged fight over the deposit, because that would involve lawyers, nasty letters and waste of time that I'd love to avoid.
Hopefully by the time I am back the whole issue should be on the way to be solved, or completely settled, meaning that I can worry 100% only about new things to arrive.
Will be in Singapore, Japan and China soon, the first leg of the trip it's going to be a Chinese Wedding in Singapore, the son of our distributor is getting married and I am attending to the reception/ceremony. It's going to be grand, more than 1000 guests. Will surely comment after I have been there!
A new chapter, you say? Well, can't wait to read it!
Hope the writer's good.

Well let's hope I can do a good job at summing up the major things, I will keep you guys posted! As for the writer thing... You'll have to survive with my writing I am afraid! :)
