How to respond to ex's message?

Ok guys and girls. I recently got a message from an ex who I haven't spoken to in around 18 months and we've been broken up around 2 yrs. It was a general message just wanting to say hi but he asked "what have you been up to?" and im not sure how to respond. Obviously a lot would have happened in 18 months but I dont want to re-hash the entire 18 months...but don't want to say "Yeah not much. Same old same old." mainly because "same old" now would be different to what it was 2 yra ago. How do I play it cool without sounding boring? And without giving him my life story?

I'm really kind of lost for words with this one so help would be appreciated.
Updates:
Thanks you both. Have no idea how much you guys helped. I ended up using both ideas. Didn't give too much away re: what i had been up to but a few hints on work and travel. Think things went fairly well.

  • Give him a run-through of all the coolest stuff you have accomplished/done over the past 18 months. Stuff like hobbies you've picked up, or if you've been going to the gym, or if you've got a new job. Stuff like that
