There's absolutely nothing extraordinary about today. The weather is a bit grey. Work is busy as usual. Still, there are only a couple of days like this one in your life.
I woke up this morning, alone, in my bed in our new house. I had breakfast and coffee, alone, and checked my e-mail. I tripped over my suitcase on my way to the bathroom, got ready and hopped on my bike to work. A morning like every morning for most of the past few years. What's different about today is purely in my knowledge that I will never again have a morning like this in my life.
Tonight I'm on my way, suitcase in hand. I'll have an early flight tomorrow morning, destination New York City. Destination fatherhood. In a couple of weeks time, when I return to the Netherlands, this house will be a home for me, my girlfriend, our son, and a dog. Nervous? Me? But it's all good, of course.
Wish me luck.
