And then it happened again…..10 years later 💸😳😔

Hi ❣It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧡

I’m not fine today,- what happens to me 10 years ago,- more and less at the same time as now, but still in a different way,- happen to me again yesterday. I was scammed or exposed to fraud. At the moment I’m not sure what’s the difference, or what word that’s correct,- I know probably that in a couple of days when my head is a bit more clear than today. And hopefully I’m a bit more calm down- I hope I will be more calm down.

And just so you know,- this is a bit long text….

I did never thought I should be in a situation like this again,- I’m so careful. I don’t use my credit card very much,- in general I like to use cash. And Ido very few online shopping as well.. And also I’m always sure I have enough money on my account to pay for the regular expenses before anything else. I don’t even go out for a coffee together with friends before I actually know I can effort it a with good conscience. I did promise my self that I was not going to get in the same situation as 10 years ago……but I didn’t manage to keep that promise. Here I’m.

I have considered a lot if I should tell you this or not,- special because of the judgment from other people- everyone who believes that everything that happens to everyone else can not happen to them. In a very strange way there’s many souls that are “protected” from a lots of different kinds of things, happenings and stuffs in life, and “nothing” can happen to them.

And I can’t actually handle that kind of judgement today. I can’t handle any “poor you” comments either.

I can’t handle to hear or read from someone else how stupid I’m, “blue eyed”, naive, gullible and so on and so on either. Believe me,- I have had many turns around myself today and really thought about what I could done different yesterday so my bank account wasn’t emptied. Yes,- you read correct- I have 7 euro left from closely 2000 euro. Saved up during the last six months. My salary, my savings from glassbottles sales and painting sales, savings from trying to be economic- and save up enough money to be able to pay for the moving of our things and stuffs from Norway. I was half way there,- but now I’m back to start again.

Maybe and hopefully I will get the money back because I did recognize that something wasn’t quite correct early in the process, but still I did recognize it a bit to late. After my bank account just contained 7 euro. The bank and the police don’t know if I will get my money back. And the police are actually not sure if they can help very much either,- something I can understand. Economic scamming are complicated and in general done by a big and complex network. Like I was exposed for today.

I know many people are in a much worse situation then I’m,- but still my situation doesn’t feel very good for me. And I know there are so many people in the same situation as I’m in today,- and that’s not because they are stupid or “blue eyed”, or “simple souls”, or without to much knowledge or gullible. And that’s why I did choose to tell you my story today,- because this can actually happen to everyone. And also,- last time, 10 years ago I didn’t tell anyone. Actually that’s not true,- I did try to tell some very few, but they turned their back to me. And I became a suicide candidate as well. Filled up with Shame and quilt. Short version why I turned to a suicide candidate 10 years ago: I had no idea to handle a fraud and a not very good partner at the same time, and I didn’t have anyone to talk to. The best solution seemed at that time to stop being in this world…..the challenge was- my kids- I’m still here because I couldn’t manage to leave them at the same time as I didn’t felt very much for living anymore either.

This time I’m not there,- I feel for living, but I’m not in the best place at the moment. And this time I don’t feel on shame, but despair. It has taken me a lots and offer of time to be able to save up this money- and in just a couple of hours when I was working they was gone.

So what did happen? How did I be exposed for a fraud yesterday? I’m going to try my very best to explain. And I do apologise if I forget something, I’m not myself today.

As some of you know our things and stuffs was delivered on my door this Monday. A bit unexpected, and a bit earlier then planned,- but okay. I had saved up half of the payment. Then I thought I should be effective and just “turn around” and sell the big things so I hopefully manage to save in a bit more for the moving transport. Actually more and less the rest what I’m missing.

I took photos and posted in a couple of sales online pages, and wow- it was a crazy response. I was so happy and a bit overwhelmed too. And I did felt a bit lucky as well. It actually seemed to go my way and I was going to be able to at least sell for around 1000 euro- instead I lots the twice.

There was 3 people in 3 different places in Spain that couldn’t pick up the things them self,- but wanted to organize “pick up” with FedEx, GLS and also something called Milanuncios. This last one is a buy and selling page in Spain. I didn’t knew they also delivered, but I don’t know all and everything in and about Spain. And I haven’t put my things for sale on this page either yet.

It showed also up a fourth delivery company too, and a fourth buyer- but at that time I had recognized that something was wrong. Maybe this fourth is a real thing, but I don’t know. It’s called Nacex Group. I haven’t checked it up.

4 people in 4 different places in Spain using 4 different delivery systems,- that’s possible, isn’t it? I know FedEx deliver from door to door, and I know GLS do too. But the thing is,- it was probably not the real deal of FedEx and GLS.

I have never used anything like this before so I don’t know how it works. But I got an explanation on email from 3 of them. Not quite similar actually, but still they needed my account and some of my credit card information to be able to transfer the money for the sale into my bank account. And my phone number and of course address as well for picking up the things. I also got a confirmation on email about date and time for picking up the things I had sold.

I gave the information about my bank account- two different accounts. I shouldn’t done that. And I did my job on my costumer service agent on the phone, and felt quite good actually. Some of the things was going to be picked up at 17. And some around 18.30. This was FedEx and GLS. This Milanuncios I did just gave up my address and phone number too, I felt I needed to find out if it was correct that this online selling and buying net page actually did delivered for people. But I couldn’t do that before after my job was finish.

I got different emails and texts on What’s up from Fedex and GLS, and the costumer as well, and tried my best to handle them inbetween my job. In the meantime the account with most of my money was tapped for money.

I have delivered it all to the police and the bank. I contacted them as soon as I registered that something wasn’t correct.

This person that “used” Fedex as a delivery company asked me to update him or her, I’m actually not sure if it was a he or she, when I had got the money into my account and the things was picked up around 17.00. This costumer I haven’t heard anything more from, but this FedEx are texting me a lot, and I can’t block them either because the police want to know what they are texting me.

And then it’s something they called simulation payment and wanted me to do a simulation payment so they new it was my account and me the money went to. Like a kind of verification. I don’t know what I simulation payment is- but the police could confirm that some companies use this kind of payment. For real, the bank confirmed it as well. But still I’m not sure what it is. It’s a kind of verification for to know that the seller is the credit card owner.

And this GLS was a lady in Sevilla, she texted me a lot. I have blocked her now.

In FedEx the sales was for around 500 euro and in GLS actually 630 euro.

But in some way they both suddenly told me that I was going to get 880 euro into my bank account. Two different persons, two different delivery companies, the same amount- I knew that was not correct.

When I did recognized that my bank account was empty and not with more money I asked FedEx, what did happen? And then it was this simulation payment, but I was going to get my money back,- 880 euro. They have empty my account for a bit more then 880 euro.

The lady wrote to me, wanted me to hurry up with different kinds of confirmation about the delivery and also wrote to me that I was going to get 880 euro into my account. That was not correct. And at time I was also starting to try to minimize the economic damage and situation, and was in contact with both the bank and the police.

I know FedEx deliver and pick up, but I don’t know how it is in function the payment from the costumer, or the payment to the costumer. You can call me stupid and “blue eyed”, gullible or a “simple soul”,- but don’t tell it to me. Tell it to yourself in your head. I have more than enough to handle myself now at days then also some other peoples judgement about that “I should knew better”. And I’m actually not sure how I could knew this better either. I have never used FedEx, I have not sold anything online in Spain before and I know it’s necessary to give my account information if I want to have money into it- but unfortunately that kind of information also can put you in a totally different and opposite situation as well- like I’m in now at days.

I know that 2000 euro maybe aren’t a lots of money for some people,- but for me it’s a bit actually. And it has been a lots of work for me to even get then, save them up.

There are so many different ways to pay for things in today’s society and to be honest I’m not familiar with most of them. And as more everything becomes more and more technical and more and more safe and secure, and even “easier” to use with all the different codes and things- for me it all seems and feels more and more unsecured and unsafe.

I have tried my very best to tell you what happen. I’m not in a very good place now at days- I don’t know what to do. And I’m really asking you to not write any comments to this text- I’m not in a place where I can handle negative comments at the moment.

And to be honest,- I feel it’s a kind of curse that lies over me when it comes to money and me and being exposed to fraud .I feel destroyed. I don’t know why this happens to me. I admit I feel like the worst person that in some or another way need to get this kind of treatment. Maybe I do deserve this? But I’m not sure why I do- but obviously I do. I feel I can work and work and work and try to save up. I’m not sure what wrong I have done in my life,- but today it feels like I have done something very wrong and need to get the punishment I deserve. I feel like a not very good human og person because this things happen- it’s probably a reason.

It will be a while until I’m writing in my blog again now- I’m not in a good place and need to try my very best to put myself together in one or another way. I’m not a suicide candidate this time- but I’m not in a very good place either. All my work, all my savings are gone. And I need to try to pick myself up again in one or another way- but at the moment I don’t know how.

It is not so easy to distinguish what is false and real In this online and technical world we live in.

I tell you my story because it so easy to be scammed and be exposed for fraud in today’s society- but still there are so many people who are judges and looks down on people who are exposed to this. I know there will probably be more then enough people who want to tell me “why, how, you should have done this and that and ect instead”. At least I did contact the police as soon as I understood something wasn’t correct, and the same with my bank.

I tell you my story, but I don’t like to tell it- sometimes it’s just necessary to tell things that’s happen in life, but aren’t good.

And ps- when I was writing my story I got a new sale- but this one needed to use DHL for delivery. I don’t know if this is a real sale- probably not.

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡 Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog today 🧡

See you when I’m in a bit better place in my life 🤞🙏

All my small savings in a “just in case” box in my kitchen- and this one will be good to have now at days.

I’m not sure what to say,- but I’m not in a very good place now at days. The today’s society with all kinds of different payments possibilities and all the different security systems- that should make our life easier also makes it so much easier to be exposed for different kinds of frauds. Like I was yesterday. And then it all makes it all so much more difficult then easy,- that’s for sure.

It’s a time for everything 😊📝

Hi❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧡

I have decided that I’m going to stop “blogging” next year, more precisely in January or February 2023. It’s a time for everything- it’s a time to try something new as well as stop something when it feels it’s the time for that as well 😊. This is not a decision I have made today, I have actually thought about it for a while,- but I needed to be sure about me decision before I shared it.

My life it’s not so exciting either 😅,- and I can’t imagine it will be after I have turned 50 either 😊. And in the end of January next year I’m actually going to be 50 😳. It feels strange to think about,- but that’s hopefully life- that I will be so lucky that I will be 50 and 60 and hopefully 70 too, and maybe even a bit more years then that as well 😊.

Of course I can’t know I’m going to be 50, because we haven’t any guarantees for anything in life,- but I hope so 🧡. And I think it can be a good thing for me to “end” my 40’s together with the blogging, and start my 50’s without 😊. For me it feels correct, and I’m very comfortable and in a way relived over my decision 😊. In a way I feel like the blogging for me have done it’s “mission” in my life. And it has been very helpful in it’s own way for me.

I like to write, and to write my blog have given me a lot. I’m not so sure it have given the readers the same. What I do know is that at least the readers have followed me during some ups and downs,- and to write a bit during “the down time” have at least given me a possibility to get a kind of distance to things in life that didn’t felt to good at the moment.

It’s like I have shared my different challenges together with a kind of friend when I’m writing in my blog, even I in general don’t get any “solutions” or answer how to handle different kinds of challenges in life, it’s still a kind of help to just put some words on the paper,- if you understand what I mean? So it has been a bit helpful for me, a kind of therapy, this blogging- process during the last years, but maybe, and probably, not for my readers 😊.

It takes time to write a blog too, and I also have bad conscience when I do not write in my blog, especially when there are many days between each time I write. And when I’m starting to feel a bit on this bad conscience it’s time to do something with that,- and for me the best solution is to stop writing instead of try to write even more. Because then I’m stressing myself unnecessary. And if it’s something I don’t like very much in my life anymore it’s stress. Then it’s best to remove the stress that’s possible to remove 😊.

So why doesn’t I just stop writing in my blog now? Because I have a “couple” of more texts and things I want to write about, and maybe even share 😊. And like I mention,- for me it feels a bit “correct” to walk out of my 40’s in the blog, and into my 50’s without 😊.

In many ways, this blogging is something I have done most for myself, while sharing myself. At the same time as I hope it has been a bit okay for the readers to read a bit a about a very ordinary life. The ups and downs,- and that it’s quite okay to just have a ordinary life too,- with ups and downs 😊. It’s actually that that’s in general the most “normal” life I think.

I need to be honest and say when I started blogging I did hope it was a bit money to earn in the blogging era too- and of course it is possible,- but not for me. And I also started to blog, like I mention, because I like to write and for me writing is a part of the processing process of various events in my daily life and life in general.  Eventually now maybe it’s time to go back to writing my private diary instead?  It works just as well as a processing process in a blog, while at the same time I do not feel guilty that I do not have the time or capacity to write, or in fact and even nothing exciting to write about.

So why do I tell you about this today? Because it’s still a couple of more months until next year, and until Im going to stop blogging. But when I have made a decision I feel it can be okay to tell, just so you know.

My time as a hobby blogger is over in a couple of months,- and that feels as a good decision to take 😊. It’s a time for everything, and to blog has been a great experience as well as a kind of therapy for me, but it’s maybe time for me to use my time to something else, and in a different way 😊.

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡 Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog today 🧡

See you soon as possible 😊

I’m going to stop blogging in a couple of months- and that feels actually quite okay😊.

It’s a time for everything- and I have for a while though about to stop blogging. It feels a bit like that “time” in my life it’s over,- it have done it’s “mission” for me. But I’m going to continue a tiny bit more,- and stop around the time I have decided, just because 😊.

Someone “has” “Friday the 13th”, I think I “had” “Monday the 13th” 😳

Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧡

First of all I need to say I had a really great time together with my friend from Norway 🥰. It was good to see her again and “chat up” after so long time 🥰. And I hope I will get some more guests from Norway during the summer, but first of all I need to sort out some private challenges and issues.

For some people Friday the 13th is a kind of unlucky day,- but for me I think it’s Monday the 13th. Or maybe not unlucky, but challenges. In Spain it’s Tuesday the 13th, or some say also Monday the 13th, that is the “famous unlucky day”- so I’m actually not sure what’s correct. For me it feels more like it’s Monday the 13th that is a day that have this “touch” of this unlucky stuff.

Anyway,- I need to admit this day haven’t quite been my favourite day today. Actually it has been a day with different uncomfortable feelings. So I do feel it has been a bit like a “unlucky the 13th….Monday “.

My private computer collapsed, there’s no life in it no matter what I’m trying to do. That’s not to good, because I do my freelance work on that one,- a job I’m a bit financially dependent on having a while ahead. And I can’t buy a new one at the moment either because…..

…..also today all our things and stuffs suddenly was delivered on my door. I was not prepared for that one, and not my wallet either 😳. And I was really not prepared for the mental and emotional reaction either- that one was really hard. It was hard to “get” our life in Norway after so long time “delivered” on my door. Our past, memories- a lots of great and good memories,- but it’s because of bad memories and experiences all our things are here now. And I was not prepared it was so much things and stuffs either.

I’m very grateful my oldest son is “just around the corner”- because it became a bit to much for me to handle alone today- emotions, thoughts, feelings and worries, tears, so many tears,- and how to manage pay for this? I had a plan- but that one did work out. I haven’t payed for it yet- and that doesn’t feel very good either. It shouldn’t come yet,- and now I feel a bit like I have stolen my own things and stuffs, and past. Not a very good feeling that one either. Hopefully that feeling will past- and solutions showing and coming up too. And hopefully a solution will come very soon. I’m really trying to find a solution.

Luckily there’s different things we can sell- but how fast will it be possible to sell them?

I should also pay for the water to day, but that wasn’t easy to do. A old house with a old payment system, and they couldn’t find my home or the water bill in the system- that one felt very uncomfortable too. Will they turn off the water now? I really don’t hope so.

And then it’s also a strike in my job today at the customer service senter. Strike for higher salaries. I’m very agree that we need to get a bit better / higher salary,- but still it feels a bit like I have done that one illegal today- to not log me on the phone and do my job. I can’t say I felt it was like a great day off from work- more like a day where “all and everything” just “happen”, things I didn’t wanted or wished for to happen. I don’t like to be away from my job when it’s not because of holiday or illness or a legal approved appointment I have and have the right to be away from my job. I didn’t enjoy this day off from work at all for. It feels like i’ve skipped my job today, something I don’t like. So hopefully at least the salary will be higher- but I don’t know.

If it’s something that really stressing me out it’s when I don’t have the overview over the economy. I thought I slowly was getting there now- but with this computer crash, not be able to pay the water bill and also for our things and stuffs- phu- it’s stressing me a bit. And no- at the moment I have no overview over the situation at all.

In one way of course this day also was a good day just because of the reason that our things and stuffs from Norway actually are here now after so many, many years in Norway. And I know that,- but I need to admit that today I have a tiny challenge to see that and feel that. Feel happy and grateful- I feel most sad. Really , really sad, and I do cry too.

At the same time I also was “off from my job” today because of the strike when suddenly all our things was “standing” there. If I have been working I haven’t been able to take them. So maybe something with this day have a kind of meaning, I just don’t see it all yet 😊.

When I have got a bit more control and economic overview it will be better. It will feels better,- but today I’m not ready for any nice and great holiday guests from Norway- but I will be- I just need a tiny bit of time to sort things out a bit first 😊. The economic situation and when I don’t have the control and overview and don’t see the solutions- I don’t like that, it’s stressing me. Even I know it’s not “the end of the world”- it feels a bit like that for me.

And of course I know for many people my day, my unlucky Monday the 13th, and this different experiences and challenges doesn’t feel so much and so big and so challenged- and I understand that- but for me it feels like a tiny mountain with (money) challenges around me today.

And then just to “top it a bit more” my television stopped loading, the chrome caster didn’t wanted to cast, and I suddenly didn’t have any access to my blog either 😅. But both of that ones are fixed now. But of course then even tiny little small things that goes wrong can feel like a tiny mountain to move, and to get things correct again.

And I needed to write this today,- not for complaining- even I know I’m doing that- but in a way write a kind of distance to the things that’s feels a bit challenging and difficult today. And to be honest,- I do feel a bit more calm down then for just a tiny while ago- even I still not have any solutions or overview. I’m actually grateful for the strike today so I was able to take our things and stuffs into my home. And of course I’m grateful for that the things actually are here. And hopefully solutions will come for my private computer, the water bill and the payment for our things too.

Thank you so much for just letting me “squeeze a bit out” on “the paper” today- it helped a bit to be honest 🧡

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡 Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog today 🧡

See you as soon as possible 😊

I’m trying to smile as best as I can- but I do feel a bit chaotic inside me today 😊

For some Friday the 13th is a unlucky day, for me it felt a bit like Monday the 13th was a bit uncomfortable day, with a touch of some lucky stuffs. But at the same time touched with some things, happenings, feelings, thoughts and emotions I was not prepared for- lucky ones at the same time as it feels a bit challenging too.

Goodbye May 🌹and Hello to you June 🌞

Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧡

Then also May is history,- and I’m pleased and grateful for the different things I did experiences in May ❤.

I was on a short trip to Malaga for picking up Mathilde’s tiny little pocket. And I have both been in the theater and using the bus here in Spain for the first time 🎭.

I have delivered a basket with painted glassbottles, and also finished a bigger painting order. At least bigger order for me 🎨.

I have even “built” a tiny bamboo roof over my terrace,- and so fare so good,’ it haven’t blown away 😊🌞.

And I also have been into a tiny “trip” during this perimenopause,- and even it’s says it is a “new Spring in life”,- I need to admit I’m struggling a bit. Not because of wrinkles or my hair, not even that my body, or the fact that my clothes are changing,- but this f..@,, jumping jackflash hormones 😳. To be honest,- this mood- thing during the perimenopause it’s not so easy to handle- phu!! So one thing is for sure,- after my friend have travel back to Norway I’m going on regular basis on “the treadmill”- read regular workout and exercises 🤸‍♀️. And that’s going to be a very valuable time for me,- because I know it will help me. Help at least the thoughts, feelings, mood and mind to calm down a bit 💚.

I feel I have a lots of different kinds of things to be grateful for during May,- even this “new Spring in life”,( even that Im not so sure if I like to much) – because it’s actually in its own way “forcing” me to start up with regular workout and exercises again 💚🤸‍♀️😊.

I’m also incredibly grateful for what’s happen in my children’s life during May 💙💙❤. Marius started in a new job, and he really like his new job 😊. Ruben have got his first own car, and also managed to buy his first own apartment 🏡. And I’m so proud of him 🥰. And Mathilde enjoying her new life in Bali with many new experiences and knowledge in her life, as well as about her self ❤.

I’m not sure what June will bring me of happiness and joy, and maybe sone new experiences and knowledge too ❤- but I’m looking forward to meet June and the things I at least know a tiny bit about 💚. Like for example my friend from Norway and her visit, my jobs, my paintings and the workout and exercising- plan 🤸‍♀️. And also a barbecue evening together with Marius and Irene at my roof terrace 😊🧡. The rest? I’m hoping and wishing for it will be a nice and smooth month without to many negative thoughts, feelings, moods, experiences, changes and challenges 💚🤞🙏. I need to get a better balance inside me, a better peaceful mind and soul 🙏💚. (I know it’s perimenopause that’s challenging me a lot- but hopefully it will be better with some regular workout and exercises 🤸‍♀️🙏🤞).

So Thank you so much May,- it was a experience and two and a joy to “meet” you ❤. I wish June very welcome 💚.

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡 Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog 🧡

See you soon 😊 ( ps- I’m probably coming back to write in my blog in a week or so, because I’m going to use my time on my work and together with my friend the nexts days 😊)

Even my tiny little backyard art cafe is ready for the summer- (also a tiny summesale of canvas and glassbottles if someone should be interested 😊🎨)

I have different things and even some new experiences to be grateful for during May ❤. I’m not sure what June will bring,- but I do know I’m really looking forward to get a cozy visit from a very good friend from Norway 💚.

A nice visit surprise 😊🛩🏖

Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧡

I’m actually getting a holiday guest this week,- something that is a very nice surprise 😊. Well,- it’s not a surprise since I know my friend is coming, but it is only 3 weeks since she asked me if I had time for a holiday visit this week. And of course I have,- but I need to do my work in between 🎧.

I’m really looking forward to see my friend from Norway again, it’s some years ago we have met. And I’m really looking forward to show her my “new” home so close to the beach and the sunrise 🌞

It’s actually around 2, 5 years since I have had any holiday guests,- except from my Ruben this January 🥰. But he is my child, my son, not a holiday guest,- so it’s a other kind of vist. He have still a kind of life here after living here for some years. He have friends he meets up with and doing different things together with when he is in Spain 😊.

This visit is a nice surprise also because I didn’t think anyone from Norway was going to visit me this year. I have asked some few family and friends from Norway if they wanted to visit me in Spain this year,- but in general I have got the answer “Nja, maybe next year, it’s still corona and also a war going on”.

I understand that,- and a other thing,- to be honest, I don’t think I can effort to host a lots of guests anyway. I don’t have the economy to have many guests to serve several meals per day rather.  It also costs some money to host guests. And I can’t have a free “holiday in” even I’m living in Spain.

I know I could probably ask more friends and family from Norway to visit me, but in a way I “gave up” when I got this answer, and also when I thought a bit about how much the economic cost can be for me to have several guests during the summertime and Autumn. I actually can’t effort it.

The prices are higher in Spain too, both the food, drinks, water, gas, electricity, but my salary is not higher. No changes on that one. Of course it feels a bit sad,- but it is what it is,- and it’s better to accept the fact and situation,- and do the best of it,- like really enjoying the visit I having (and can effort) 🥰.

I understand why people still are considering to travel or not. It has been some special years with the corona- situation, and now the war in Ukraine. So yes,- it was a very nice surprise that my friend asked me if she could visit me for some days 😊. I didn’t see that coming,- and I’m going to appreciate and take care of every moment 😊. Special because I think this will be more and less the only holiday guest that will drop by to me this year 🏖. And this guest doesn’t use me and my home as a “free holiday in” in Spain either,- she helps out. Something I’m really grateful for 🧡.

My friend did visit me several times a year before the corona- situation. She visited me so often that she have a bit clothes and private things here. She was actually the last guest before corona did “dropped by”. She visited me in October 2019 for a week, and now she also will be the first one that visit me after the corona- situation 😊.

We have been friends for many, many years. Actually since she was 6 years old and I was 7 years old. That’s a bit of some years 😊.

But I don’t remember what I do when I have holiday guests anymore 😅. It’s “just” 2,5 years since I had guests, but still….it’s feels like in an other “lifetime” after the corona- situation. And I have also moved into a new home. Lucky for me it’s a friend I know very well so I don’t need to stress to much with to much “entertainment”. I think beach and ocean, barbecue at my terrace and maybe a visit or two “here and there” will be fine 🏖.

But I need to admit I have thought a bit about that,- what do I do together with holiday guests? It’s good I can “exercise” a bit with a good friend now during the nexts days, because I’m actually not sure anymore what I do when I have holiday guests 😊. I’m a bit “out of training” when it comes to host holiday guests 😅.

And what do I fill the fridge up with? What kind of food? What to drink? I myself live in a way very “simple” when it comes to food and drinks. In general I eat what’s in the fridge 😊. And buy just what I need. It’s not any kind of “gourmet” in my fridge, to be honest 😅. A couple of years ago I actually had a bit control and a kind of “overview” over that one too 😊. But okay,- it is what it is,- and I’m going to do my best so she will feel very welcome, and hopefully will visit me again 🌹.

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡 Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog today 🧡

See you soon 😊

Things are ready for my guest,- clean bed, towels and even some books she can read if she want 😊(ear- plugs?- it’s a bit more noisy here then where I lived before. I sleep well, but I don’t know if my friend will sleep well- so just in case,- ear- plugs to her 😊)

It’s some years since I had holiday guests in my home now,- actually closely 2, 5 year 🏖. It’s mainly because of the corona- situation. But now my first holiday guest is “on the way”,- something I really looking forward to 😊🛩.
