Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧡
The 14. March 2020 Spain closed down the society, the borders and also introduced curfews.
It has been a strange year for most of us all over the world. It has been a difficult year for most of us. We have not struggled with the same challenges or same difficult things, stuffs and situations. But most of us have been through different difficult times during this last year. Let us not forget that 🧡.
Sometimes, actually a bit to often, I get the impression that this corona- situation just affects some very few, but it’s not. It’s not all and everyone that are “yelling and smelling”, complains and crying out loud how difficult their life has become because of the coronavirus and the situation around this. And maybe the once who are most quiet struggling even more?
People have lots their loved ones. People have lost their jobs and income, their safety net. People have lost their homes. People are tired. People are lonely. People are worried.
It has been a strange time in my home too this year, but one thing is for sure,- I have really not been alone or felt of any kind of loneliness 😊. And I’m actually grateful for that 🧡. I have had more “traffic” in my home this year then “ever”, and then without any holiday guests too.
I haven’t lost my job either, even maybe my job- situation as a costumer service agent on the phone will change during this Spring. It will just change to a new company. But at the moment I don’t know when. The dates changes from week to week so I just try to do my best and following up 😊.
I’m still working from my home as a costumer service agent on the phone, and I really hope I can continue doing that for a longer period 🎧. I really like and enjoy to work from my home 😊. I think I have the nicest, most practical and best creative home working corner 🎨🎧.
There has been less to do at my freelance online job the two lasts months. And to be honest, that doesn’t feels very good, because I actually need to have at least a minimum of job to do every week. And the minimum has been lower then the minimum I need. But when that’s said, – it seems to get better now 😊.
I still have my students, and that’s a good thing. And I still teaching them online by Skype.
I’m painting and knitting, and I’m so grateful for having a creative mind and creative corner in my home too, to just “hide my mind” in colours now and then 🎨🧶. And my blog is so great to have as well 🧡.
I haven’t had any visit from Norway the last year, and I miss that, at the same time there hasn’t been any “room” for more people in ny home either 🏡. I’m not sure, I have actually no idea if I will get some visit from family and friends in Norway this year either. And I don’t know if I will manage to travel to Norway and visit my family and friends either.
I really miss my son in the middle a lot, so I hope there will be a possibility to travel to Norway and at least meet him, hug him, and kiss him a bit 💙.
I really don’t like to use face mask. And because of that I actually don’t “walk out” more then necessary. I go to the food store, the farmacia and also for buy paint and yarn 🎨🧶. And I go for a walk outside now and then too, because I need it, my body and mind need it.
It has been so many different restrictions during the last year that I have actually probably with remember what kind of changes and new restrictions I need to follow. So just to be “on the safe side”, I take my walks between 10.00 and 18.00. I do my shopping before 18.00, and I don’t cross the city borders more then really when it is necessary, like when I needed to travel to Madrid. I know the city borders are open now, but I also know they will close down again and new restrictions are coming up before the Easter 🐣. But I don’t remember the dates anymore, it’s to many changes to follow up when it comes to remember the new restrictions.
I’m miss to meet my friends here in Spain, at the same time as it’s possible for us to visit each other, as well as meet up on a cafe or restaurant, at least until 18.00 or 21 30? I don’t remember 😅. And I do still meet my friends, most of them, but not as much as we did meet up 12 months ago, and not at the same way 😊. And to be honest, I prefer that my friends visiting me in my home, or maybe we can meet up at a cafe now and then too 😊.
For me it’s most difficult is this feeling of not be able to create or make to many plans for the next week, weeks or month and months. It’s not possible because we have no idea what will happen. Or it’s possible, but the chances that the plans needs to change are very big. Then it’s easier to not make or create to many plans, it’s less that needs to be changed.
I have different things I want to plan, but I have put some “on hold”.
And I need to admit I’m incredibly tired now. I feel I closely don’t have a tiny drope of energy left. Probably I have some left one place 😊. But I’m not sure if I’m incredibly tired of the whole corona- situation or because there has been a lots of traffic in my home actually during the last 18 months, not just since March 2020. It has been moving in and out from my home the last 18 months. I think it’s probably a combination of both, but I think it’s mostly because of the traffic in my home I’m so, so tired now 🏡. I’m very grateful for the traffic and the incredible, amazing and fantastic people who have been living in my home during the last year 🧡, but I hope it’s still allowed to be very, very tired at the same time? 😴
I’m looking forward to hopefully get a bit more control and overview over my private economy now when I’m on my own. It’s not easy when I also try to help out this young adults as best as I can, and my “food box” in the kitchen really varies from week or month for how much food it needs to contain to “all and everyone ” 😊. As well as the use of the water or electricity 💡.
And I’m looking forward to try start to do regular workout and exercises again 🤸♀️. That one has not been easy to “follow up” together with the traffic in my home the last year 😊.
I have my thoughts about the future, and I don’t feel to comfortable with all this changes in our society and lifes. I’m actually not sure how to deal with them, I just try to do my best with the things I have and know 😊. And I’m very grateful for what I have 🧡. And all in all I actually have not very much to complain about, but a lot to be grateful for ❤.
Hopefully things will be easier little by little, and step by step this year for us all 🧡.
I’m sending you a lots of good thoughts, and 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 too 🧡.
See you soon 😊
It’s one years since the society and life in Spain changed, and in a way “stopped up” 🚫. It’s in general around one year for all of us around the world since our life- situations changed in one or another way 🌍. Hopefully things will be a bit easier, new and positive changes are showing up, slowly and probably step by step, but I choose to believe that they are “on the way”,- like the Spring flowers are 🥀.
