Me and my trolleys πŸ˜ŠπŸ›’

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

As some of you know I haven’t any car at the moment. I haven’t actually had my own car for, I think, around 1, 5 year or something like that. I haven’t had very much use for a car during this corona- situation. But now and then I have been lucky and could borrow a car from good friends if I actually really need to use a car for some of reasons. Or Marius help me out and drive me around a bit “here and there” 🚘. His car is to fancy for me, so I don’t take the chance to borrow it πŸ˜…. If I had I have probably bumped into something and destroyed the car, and I don’t want to do that.

But in general I manage to do what I need to do with using my trolleys and my two legs and the train πŸ˜ŠπŸ›’.

Me and my “food shopping trolley”- and a couple of bags too….with food after a tiny food shopping errand πŸ˜ŠπŸ›’.

And it’s actually not very practical to have a car here where I live either, because during the Spring, Summer and Autumn it’s a bit difficult to find a parking place πŸš—. It’s not a private parking place to the house, but in general a lots of free parking places to choose between during the early Spring and late Autumn, and of course during the wintertime. The parking places are free all the year around- that’s why it’s so difficult to find a parking place. And because it’s so close to the beach so many people use the parking places in this area πŸš˜πŸš—.

I also live so close to the train station it’s actually more practical, and takes shorter time to take the train to the different places where I have some errands to do, then drive a car, and find a parkingplace.

It takes me around 4- 5 minutes to walk to the train from my home, and around 10 or 25 minutes to the different places/”destinations”. It’s depends of course a bit what kind of direction or destination I’m going to, or what I’m going to do, what kind of errands I have or need to do.

4- 5 minutes walk from my home to the train station- this train station πŸš‚

I didn’t like this “trolley- use” at all in the beginning when I moved to Spain. To be honest I felt a bit stupid when I walked around with my trolley the first times πŸ™„. Actually a bit shameful 🀭. But that’s because I wasn’t use to use any trolley in Norway πŸ›’. It’s not many people that use a trolley when they “runs errands” in Norway. Maybe some elderly people now and then, because it makes the shopping so much easier, special when you don’t have a car 🚘. But in general it’s not very often you see someone running around with a trolley “in tow” in Norway.

Here in Spain you see people “here and there and everywhere” walking around with their trolleys, and then it, of course, also felt a bit more natural and normal for me to walk around with my trolley too. And now I don’t care or give my “trolley use” many thoughts at all. It’s actually just one thing I’m thinking about when I’m walking around with my trolley- I can’t use high heels shoes πŸ‘’πŸ‘ . That’s not very practical at all- I have tried πŸ˜…. And I like to use high heels, so it’s irritated me a bit for a tiny little while, but okay- it’s more important to get the food safe in the home then feel fancy on my feet 😊.

My trolley after a tiny shopping trip to IKEA 😊. I manage that one too- on my own- me and my trolley on the train 😊

The electricity is expensive here in Spain, and have for some reasons become more expensive during this corona- time πŸ’‘. It’s a bit cheaper during the weekend, so I do the clothes washing in the weekends- when the washing machine is in function πŸ™„. At the moment it’s not in function.

Lucky for me and Mathilde we in general just use the electricity to the lights, the oven, the television and our computer, and yes, of course charging our mobile, and the washing machine πŸ“².

But the hot water, the heat and the stove are on gas. So we use gas bottles to get hot water, heating up the home and cooking πŸŽ›. For some reasons also the gas bottles are a bit more expensive then before, but it’s still much cheaper to use then the electricity πŸ’‘.

But gas bottles have a habit to be empty when they are in use. So I actually also use a trolley for the gas bottles too. Drag them with me to the gas station and change to some new πŸ”₯. The gas station is not fare away either- the map says 400 meter, and a 5 minutes walk, and I think that’s correct too 😊.

I’m actually pretty good on this trolley-thing now 😊. I had never imagined that I should be that some years ago.

Look at this- a trolley for the gas bottle too 😊

Now at days I’m also using my trolley to the laundry because the washing machine is obviously “on strike”. I think it’s just a tiny connection with the “on- button” that’s the challenge- and hopefully not to expensive to fix. Hopefully the electrician can drop by next week and fix it 😊.

On the way back home with clean and dry clothes in my trolley 😊

So I’m using my trolley when I’m running different errands like shopping food or buy necessary boxes at IKEA, change the gas and wash our clothes. Hopefully the last trolley trip is soon over 😊. And it’s a bit exercise in this trolley trilling too. There’s some kilos I’m dragging around with me, that’s for sure 😊.

It’s a bit strange to think about- that I had never in my imagination thought I was going to trilling trolley on weekly basis to run different errands, or not feel stupid and shameful when I’m trolley trilling “here and there and everywhere”- but I’m not, I actually don’t care. I’m just happy and grateful for the trolley solution- it makes my different errands so much easier πŸ˜ŠπŸ›’.

Do you do something necessary in your daily routines or on weekly basis you never had thought about you was going to do “ever never”?

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 😊

Look at my sweet food shopping trolley 😊. And yes- it’s a bit to carry with me when I’m shopping food, but Mathilde does help me carry something too, now and then when she can 😊. It’s a bit more food to buy when we are two in the home then one 😊

I had never in my imagination thought I was going to be a “trolley triller” πŸ˜…, and on top of that, be a happy “trolley trillet” too,- but I’m. I’m trilling trolleys a couple of times during the week, and I’m totally fine with the situation 😊 πŸ›’. ( …except from one tiny little fact- I can’t use high heels on my trolley trilling trips- that’s very uncomfortable and not very practical at all πŸ‘ ).
