Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊. I hope all is fine with you during this days, weeks and months we all are going through 🧡
I’m fine, and today the Spanish Government could inform us that we are going to be in quarantine and curfew for 3 new weeks, at least to 26. April ⏳. So then we at the moment actually are halfway 😊. That’s not to bad 😊. It’s important to look at the bright side of the situation 🌞.
In general I have done my necessary food- shopping one day in the week,- as I do now. But this one day in the week shopping is now my more and less only opportunity to have a “tiny trip” out from my home now at days. Now my food- shopping closely are “The highlight of the week” 😅. It’s more and less the only day during the week I’m leaving my home for maybe a couple of hours 🏡. Because I do also some other necessary things then when “Im on the run”, then just the food- shopping,- like go to the farmacia or fuel my car, or change gas bottle 😊…..or meeting my daughter in secret. I would have liked to have met my middle son in secret too – but he does not live on my “allow” shopping route. But I have daily contact with him,- he haven’t any choice,- then te me he is fine, or answer my textes 😊💙.
I am very careful about having a natural and legal shopping route. There are police “everywhere” and they check that you do as you please, and do what you need to do. Like shop food that’s important for the living and not for the fun 😊.
My plan today was to do the food- shopping in turtle and snail speed 🐢🐌. So I could really enjoy just to be outside for a tiny little bit 😁, even it was inside the food store 😅. And then it was to fuel my car, take a errand in the farmacia in the centre, and then on my way back home have a tiny little bit secret meeting with my daughter,- just hug her a tiny little bit. ( and also borrow her the playstation I have/had in my home as well 😊).
It’s actually not legal to do that when we don’t live together. I’m not allowed to meet my children, my daughter and my son in the middle, and absolutely not hug them,- that’s for sure 😳.
But I miss them both, just to se them and hug them a lot 🥰. So my oldest son gets a lots of hugs at the moment 😅. He gets for all three of them 😊.
In the food store I did started my shopping with turtle steps and in a snail tempo, and really enjoyed to just walk around, look, find what I needed ….. look st things and stuff I didn’t needed…..until I did see the police did came and was waiting outside the store 😳. Then my speed did changed a bit.
I know the police are there just to make all and everything safety and securit, but they can be a bit “on the top” now and then, I think, – and use their “power” a bit more and heavier than necessary. When that’s said, the guardian civil is much, much more scary then the police and military together,- they really like to play “the big guy” 😳.
Probably are the police and military scared too, to be infected by the coronavirus. And,- death rates in Spain are very high. At the time of writing, over 12,000 have died from Covid19 in Spain. And it probably also scares the police and military to get a little aggressive as well. But because of their, now and then, a bit aggressive behaviour I’m actually more scared for the police and the military then be infected by the coronavirus, and I’m worried I have done something wrong, bought the wrong food, or forget some paper at home 😳.
So when I did see the police outside the store today, my speed changed from turtle steps to closely cheeta- speed 🐆. And I had been looking so much forward to my food shopping in turtle steps today 😅. That changed a bit fast.
It all went well in the food store, I did finish fast, and got all “the life necessary food” I needed for at least a week or two 😊. The police didn’t even check me, – phuha 😊 ! But,- there was also police standing on the road to the gas station, and I was still a bit nervous after my food shopping,- so I did actually took another way to the gas station, – and guess what,- there was also the police,- standing nicely “just around the corner”. But they either didn’t stop me,- so I could fuel my car a bit “peacefully” 😅.
Then it was next stop, to the centre and visit the farmacia and ATM. All went well there as well 😊. It was actually no police in the area at that moment 😊. And then,- my secret meeting with my daughter 🥰. It was a very short meeting during my car door 😅. But she got the playstation and I got my hug 🥰. Sounds very innocent, but this maybe 10 seconds meeting is actually illegal here in Spain at the moment. So today I did something illegal,- because I live and miss my daughter 🥰. And the playstation- thing can be understanded as not very important,- but it is. With 3 new weeks of quarantine and curfew rules she needs to have something fun to do,- and she is empty for canvas too, to paint on,- so then it is the playstation as an activity for the next 3 weeks 😊. She is going to be a proff in Buzz when this 3 weeks is over 😊. ( when that’s said, – we can actually get 2 more weeks with quarantine and curfew after that….)
It probably sounds very strange for other people that doesn’t live with the quarantine and curfew that we have here in Spain at the moment. I know my family and friends in Norway have a tiny bit challenging to actually understand and imagine how isolated we actually are living here in Spain 😊. Something I can understand,- because we are even living in a more different “worlds and cultures” differences now then before,- and you actually need to be in “the world and situation” for understanding it completely 😊. But that’s the way it is,- for all of us, – we can not understand a situation before we actually have been in a more and less similar situation,- even we can in one or another way have a kind of imagination about how it is.
The rules are very strict here and Spain, and the the consequences of breaking the rules are even more stringen. Something I can understand because of the situation the country is in at the moment 😔.
My food shopping trip went well, and my turtle steps too, for a tiny while 🐢,- and my secret 10 seconds meeting with my daughter was worthy every second and every worried in my stomach too 🧡……even when it was illegal.
How are the rules and restrictions in your country? Have you done as I did today, – broken a rule because of and for your child?
I know I did take a chance when I did what I did today,- and it wasn’t a life necessary act either. At the same time I don’t regret it, and I have done it again 🧡. I know it is a bit important for my daughter to have something to do during the 3 next weeks,- and the only thing I could help her with was to give her the playstation 🎮😊. Stupid, unnecessary, illegal, – yes in some eyes. But still important for my daughter and important for me 💚.
I’m sending you a lots of great thoughts 🧡. I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡. Thank you so much for dropping by my blog today too 🧡.
See you soon 😊.
