Thank you my wonderful customers!

Just an FYI that I'll have go on vacation mode due to upcoming surgery on my eyes. :p No fun but no choice anymore.

Surgery date is February 9th, 2016 and I most likely will start the vacation mode a few days earlier. My Ophthalmologist tells me 4 weeks but if I can I'll open up sooner (I'm kinda like that, wanting to be able to pay the doctor bills means pushing myself as much as I can).

Thank you for understanding and best regards,
