Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧡
Since I moved to Spain I have had holiday guests (family and friends) from Norway every Spring, Summer and Autumn for closely 6 years, except from this two last years. Reason, – the corona- situation. But last weekend I actually got a couple of holiday guests ….”from” Norway, or more correctly, some Norwegian holiday guests 😊. My first holiday guests in my holiday home 🌞.
It was actually “just” my daughter and her boyfriend, Nathaniel Caprino, but still it was a kind of holiday guests, and my daughter really needed a “environment” change and a tiny holiday after being sick for some weeks- and of course she ( and me as well) needed a bit “mammi love and care- time” after the illness, because it was not possible for me to give her that when she was sick 🧡.
The plan, my plan, was to have, or “house” them, from Friday to Sunday, but they wanted to come already on the Thursday 😅. Obviously they really wanted to have a holiday close to the beach, and maybe one extra day with me too? 😊
It was of course great to see them both again 🥰. But my daughter is still a bit out off energy after the Covid19 sickness. Hopefully she will recover little by little and get all her energy back again 😊.
In general their holiday weekend went very well, so well that my daughter actually wanted to come back on holiday this weekend too 😅. They are very welcome 🧡, but not every weekend, and not this weekend. I need to be a bit selfish and just take care of myself now and then too now when it’s actually starting to be a bit more “me time” 😊. But of course they are very welcome another weekend when it suits both me and them 😊.
I did write “in general”,- because it dropped up a couple of unexpected challenges 😅. Well,- challenges have in general a ( bad) habit to drop up a bit unexpected, and of course also in times when it doesn’t “suits” very well to handle different challenges, but they still need to be handled in some or another way 😳.
My plan was to go to the grocery store and shop some food for the weekend after I was finish at work on Friday. But for some reasons my bank card and my bank account wouldn’t be in function 😳. So that one I could forget 😔. Lucky for me, I in general always have some kind of food in my fridge and freezer 😊.
We did barbecue two of the evenings, and I made taco/ nachos mix too, and even a Norwegian dinner called “lapskaus”. It’s a kind of stew, but still a bit different. I also made pancakes and chocolate cake as well, and drinks,- well,- when I did borrowed Irene’ s car I actually bought in a bit big quantum of water, coca cola, water with gas, juice and so on. So no empty stomachs even there was no grocery store shopping for the weekend 😊.
I was in my bank on Monday and Tuesday, and some had actually tried to hack into my bank account 😳, so they had closed everything down. All is fixed now, and I can go to the store again 😊.
But the “biggest” challenge this weekend was probably the toilet 😳🚽. I have been a plumber several times during this weekend because the toilet clogs 😳🚽. It’s clogs even when we didn’t throw any toilet paper into the toilet, but even a bit “poo poo” was enough to clogs it. This was not to fun, and unfortunately I let a bit if my frustration going out over them 😔. But I told them sorry after, because I knew it wasn’t their mistake, but you know how it is sometimes? It’s the closest ones that gets your frustration.
That one need to be fixed, this toilet issue, but we did manage it anyway during the weekend 😅. I’m obviously a pretty good plumber so I plumped the toilet several times, but I’m still not a so good plumber that I can fix it for a permanent time, just temporarily 😊.
Maybe it’s the cockroach I threw in the toilet over the week ago? It is so grumpy that it now blocks almost all “toilet traffic”? 😳
And yes,- my daughter and her boyfriend are the first one who are trying out my guests room and the guest bed 🛏. And both was very agree that it was the best guest bed they have been sleeping in, even better then the one they have in their own home 😴 😊. That’s good to know, then I at least know my guests will sleep very well here 😊😴.
I know my daughter and her boyfriend had a great holiday weekend, and both are very welcome to take a new holiday weekend or two an other time 🧡. But just not this weekend,- I need a bit time to just be me too, now and then too 😊.
But all in all, – it was a great weekend together with this two young adults children 🥰. And they have really enjoyed the beach, the sand, the sun, the ocean every day during the weekend 🏖. And I have enjoyed their company 🥰.
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 😊
My first holiday guests has been visiting me, they didn’t travel very long, but still it was a bit like a holiday for them 🥰🏖. Some few challenges “showed up” during their holiday weekend,- but not worse then it in one way or an other could be handle 😊. And I know now that the guest room is very functional for sleep over guests 🛏😴.
