About two months ago, my family and I discovered that we were going to have to move house. This came quite out of the blue. We had been lead to believe that our lease would be renewed for another year, as would be the norm where I live. But then, unexpectedly, the owner decided to put the place on the market – some sort of rearrangement of his personal finances apparently. So with little time to spare we had to find somewhere else to live that wasn’t too far away, and then orchestrate the actual house move itself. We have small children so stuff like this is a bit of a stressful ordeal. And for a while we didn’t even have broadband!!! It has only been in the last couple of weeks that things have finally calmed down as we have started to find our feet in the new place. It has actually worked out well as it turns out, because we now have a much bigger house, on a nicer street, at a much lower rent!
Anyway, why am I tell you all this? Because, obviously, with all of this going on in my private life, I haven’t exactly been focussed on DSmaps for the last couple of months. That’s just the way it is when the person behind a home project has a very busy home life! The move has affected my day job too and I’m having to make up for that during the evenings. I can’t really apologise for it I’m afraid!
But suffice it to say that I haven’t abandoned you. My wife is my biggest (only?) fan and she constantly nags at me to finish the next release. So it will get done – my domestic happiness and sanity depends on it!
