Starting packing down a bit🏡 🧰

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

I have actually started a bit to “clean up” the house and pack down things and stuffs a bit 🧰. I know I’m not going to move before around the 17. June, but I like to have it a bit organized around me, and it’s a bit off things and stuffs that has sampled up during 7 years too and with 2- 3 children in the home as well 😊. And it’s also easier to clean the house when it’s empty.

I don’t have my own car at the moment either so I need a bit help from my children, friends and a moving company too, to move as well. Then it’s good to have it “all” as ready and organized as possible. Also because I need to do my jobs inbetween too. Both my customer service agent job, my teaching job and my freelance work as well. And to be honest,- I do my work best in a organized and tidy area, environment and atmosphere 📝. So I want to have it tidy and organized around me in this soon old home too until I’m moving 😊.

I’m in way not going to “move in” into the new home even I’m moving into a new home. This new home is more for a period for maybe 6 or 12 months, and I just need my clothes, toiletries, my jobs and my hobbies available in my new home.  Everything else is already there. So my own “everything” I can just keep in boxes and bags for a while.

My new home it’s not a place where I’m going to “settle down”. It’s a place where I’m going to live and stay for a while, and maybe take a better look behind this new door that’s open up in my life?

Then it’s good to just pack down the things and stuff I don’t need for a while, and organize the things I’m going to use and need to use in my daily life for the next weeks and months 😊.

I also need to think my jobs in the moving process because I’m working from home at the moment, and I’m probably going to work from my home until the end of July. So my work need to be organized in the moving process in a way that makes it possible for me to do my work too in between the old home and the new home, and without losing to many working days in my freelance online job and my teaching job 😊. In my customer service agent job I will get two paid moving days, so I’m not to worried about that one 😊.

It’s a bit sad to pack down 7 years of ower life, my children and my life. It’s like I’m literally packing down a period in my life that’s over now, and it won’t come back ever again either 😔.

But it’s a lots of good and funny memories too, at the same time it’s just a bit sad too at the moment, because I don’t have any one to share the memories together with when I’m packing. No one to smile to and laugh together with over “old memories”, because my children aren’t here to share them with me. It’s just me. And most of the “memories” I’m packing down it’s memories between my children and me. But this is a part of the process I’m going through. This is a part of the life. A part of the midlife.

But I need to admit it has made me think a bit about this “dating” and relationship I have “put on hold” for a while. It’s actually nice to have someone to create and share memories together with …. but at this point I just leave it to that. Now I need to focus jobs and packing, and maybe, but just maybe I take a look at my “dating” decision, and maybe reconsider it….but just maybe.

I have thrown away a bit things, and some of the things I’m going to let just stay in this home, and some stuff I have started to give away to friends that want or need some of the things I don’t need anymore.

I’m actually half way to “cleaning up” and “packing down” this home, our life, so I feel I can relax a bit for some weeks now, and continue focus on my jobs and my hobbies until the “real deal” moving day 😊.

I feel more relaxed at the moment then I have felt the last 2, maybe 3 weeks. And it is because I know where I’m going to stay for a while, and because I have it a bit organized around me again, and because I know it’s not to much left to do when it comes to the next “step” in the moving next month 😊.

I know myself so well that I knew this was something I needed to do, even it’s a month until I’m actually moving 😊. Now the atmosphere around me is tidy and organized in a way that makes me do my jobs in a good way, and I feel more comfortable in this, maybe a bit “stand by” period in my life 😊.

It’s a process, and it’s okay, and it’s good to feel and think about this new “door” in my life, as well as it is a bit sad to slowly close a “old door” in my life too. Mixed feelings. Mixed thoughts.

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 😊

Some of our things are already ready for moving when the moving day arrives 😊

I have started to pack down some of my children and my things and stuffs 🧰. It feels a bit sad, and it was a bit strange too not have anyone around me to share different memories that “showed up” under the packaging 🥀. It’s around one month to I’m going to leave this “old” home now 🏡.

Maybe there’s something in it …? 🥀

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

As some of you know I’m going to move, something that came a bit unexpected and a bit faster then I had in mind.

I had something else in my mind and in a bit different “time schedule” too. In my mind I thought maybe I was going to move from this home in October or maybe during the Spring 2022. But obviously that was not the plan 😊.

And I have been thinking a bit about this “plan”,- my plan that’s not going the way and direction I had in mind,- that’s for sure 😅. But obviously there is a kind of plan in front of me, but I have just no any idea what it is, or where, or how to find it 😊.

One of my neighbours told me exactly this one day too,- that it was probably an other plan for me then I had in mind. And maybe there’s something in it? 🤔 But what? And where? And how? Because I don’t know at the moment, or maybe I do? 🍇

One thing is the pandemi- situation in the society and the world. That one has changed many people’s plans and lives, and not to the best either 😔. And of course also many of my plans are affected by the corona- situation. Maybe also this a bit sudden moving- situation? It’s just that I’m actually moving because of a increase of the rent, and not the opposite, that maybe should be a bit more natural under an pandemi?

I have many times said “when one door is closing, a new one is open up”. And I believe that it true too. It’s just a bit “scary” to open up and go into the “unknown”, the new door- opening and into something new and unknown. Special when I actually don’t know what will “meet” me behind this new door- opening in my life.

Well,- in one way I know where I’m going to live, and how the new home is 🏡. I have visit Natasja in their holiday home I’m going to rent many times 😊. And I’m going to live so close to the beach, something I really looking forward too 🏖. I actually thought I was not going to vist the beach very much this summer, but the beach is going to be my neighbour instead 🏖. So there will be more beach- visits then I had in mind too 😊. And I really like to spend time at the beach 🏖.

So literally I know what’s behind the new door I’m going to open up, because I know how the new home is looking like. But mentally I have not any ideas what I can expect,- except from that I’m incredibly grateful for this new home opportunity 🧡, and things in my life are changing, that’s for sure 😊.

It’s also the first time in my adult life I’m going to move on my own, alone 😳. I moved from my parents home when I was 19 years old, but then I became a mammi just some few months after my 21. birthday, and after that I have not moved to much and to many times, and always together with my children too.

It feels a bit strange to move without my children. I knew this day would come, but I thought I had a bit more time to “feel and think” about “this” new living on my own, and moving on my own situation too 😊. Now I feel I was a bit “thrown out” in something I’m not quite ready for 😅.

But at the same time I need to admit I feel a bit comfortable and “safe” with my new living- situation because I’m going to rent from someone I know very well. And in a way, like I mention, I “know” the home I’m moving into 🏡. But still it feels a bit strange too,- like “someone” else just changed my plans without “consulting” me first if it was okay for this new changes 😅. Sounds maybe strange, but that’s the way I feel at the moment 😊. I don’t know if you understand what I mean?

At the moment I feel, I actually know I don’t have any other choices then to open the new unknown door in my life. And the first step into this “unknown” is to move and start to live in a new home for a while 🏡. But not before in the middle of June, its about more or less a month to I’m going to move.

And,- yes,- I do believe there’s probably a “reason” or “plan” for why this happen in my life now, I just don’t know what it is 😊. I believe there’s maybe something in “it”, an other “plan” that I have and had in my mind, and that’s a new and unknown door is open up in my life. But what? Well,- it’s just to live, do the best of it and see “what’s happen” 🧡.

Do you feel like this sometimes? 🥀 Like “someone” changing your plans in your life without “consulting” you first? And that it feels a bit scary to open up the new door in your life because you don’t know what’s behind it? What can or will happen when you open the new door ? 🌸

I’m actually looking forward to this new unknown door I have in front of me, at the same time I hope it’s “allowed” to “feel” a bit around this soon new living- situation in my life 😊. The unexpected, the new door, the changes in my plans without “consulting” me first 😊.

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 🧡 Take good care 🌹.

See you soon 😊

A new door is “slowly” open up in my life,- and I don’t know what I can or will meet behind it 😊 That is both a bit scary and exciting at the same time 😊

My neighbour told my that maybe it was “the plan” that I was going to move soon and a bit unexpected, even it was not my plan 🏡. I know when one door is closing in life, a new one is open up. But it is both a bit scary and exciting at the same time to open up the door to the unknown 😊.

A human angel with pink wings 😇🧡🏡

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

It’s actually one week since I dropped by my blog, and it has been a bit of a week too 😊. A week with some fantastic news in a bit stressful situation.

I need to move from this house, a place that has been my children and my home during closely 7 years now 🏡. But , unfortunately, the owner increase the rent and I haven’t economy for renting and living here anymore then 😔. It felt a bit sad, and to be honest, I was also a bit surprised over the rent increase. My neighbours too was a bit surprised that the owner increased the rent as much as they did during an already difficult situation as an pandemi situation can be.

But there’s an expression in Norway “More wants more”. Well,- at least my neighbours think so, and I need to admit, the expression has dropped into my min too…. , but okay. It is what it is 😊.

I have been thinking a lot about how to find a solution to this suddenly moving situation 🏡. I was not prepared for this. In my mind I thought I could live here for maybe one more year, and of course, if I could pay the new rent I also could be living here one more year too, but, unfortunately, I don’t have the economic for that.

I know my best friend, Natasja and her husband, has an holiday apartment close to the area I’m living in, that they are renting out to holiday guests. But for some reasons it took me some days before I actually did remember that 😅. I think I had to many thoughts at the same time in my mind. But for some reason it suddenly dropped into my mind,- “Natasja and her husband, I can ask them if they still have their holiday apartment, and it it’s available for me to rent it for a while“.

I’m a bit surprised over my self and it actually took me many days before I remember their holiday apartment. But I was probably to focus to see the stress, and try to find solutions, that I actually didn’t use my focus in the correct direction.

Anyway,- they still have their holiday apartment 🏡. It has been empty for a year now, unfortunately and natural enough, because of the pandemi. So I can rent their holiday home for 6 months as a start, and maybe even for one year 🥰.

I feel so incredibly grateful for this opportunity, and so incredibly lucky too 🧡.

I feel a bit like Natasja is my human angel with pink wings 😇. And of course, pink wings, because she really loves the colour pink 💝. And it is not the first time she is “saving” me, or more correctly helping me in a difficult situation. So there’s no doubt in my mind that she is my human angel with her pink wings 😇.

I’m just not sure what I can do or give back to her to show her how much I presage her as my best friend and also her help 💝. I have something in my mind, but I think I ask her first before what she prefer, before I share it with you 😊. But yes, the colour pink is a part of it 😊,- and maybe even some wine too 🥂.

I’m very grateful for all my close friends,- both here in Spain and Norway too ❤. But some friends are a bit different, and a bit more special then others, at the same time as I can say I really care a lot about all my good friends ❤. But, yes, Natasja is, for me, a human angel with pink wings 😇. I hope you have a friend like that in your life too 🧡.

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

See you soon,- and a bit sooner then in a week 😊

I feel I have my own human angel with pink wings in my life 😇. Something I’m incredibly grateful for 💝. And yes, the wings is pink because this human angel’s favourite colour is pink 😊.

A cup of tea and good conversations do wonders for the soul 🍵🧡

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

A good cup of tea and some good conversations do wonders for the soul 🍵. And I had a bit of that this weekend- some cups of tea and some good conversations that was incredibly good for my soul 😊. I don’t know if I can call what my friend and I for “afternoon tea” like the Englishmen have, but in my way it was 😊. It was in the afternoon, it was tea and it was some homemade cakes too, and it was good for the soul 😊.

I had have a bit on my mind lately, and still have, but with some good conversations, some tasty tea together with a good friend and her help to “sorted” out a bit, and make some small, short plans, for day by day, and week by week, not month by month at the moment. It’s good to start in the “small” when things sometimes feels a bit to big and overwhelming,- and it’s even better to get a bit help just during some good conversations 😊.

I’m a bit surprised over this “effect” a “tea “time- out”” can have, both when I’m enjoying a cup of tea on my own, but even more when I’m enjoying it together with someone 🍵.

A cup of tea together with a good friend this weekend 🍵

I know tea has an relaxing effect, and it’s actually healthy too because 99% of a cup of tea is water. Maybe my cup of tea is with 98% of water and the 2% of honey 🌼 ? I really like to squeeze a bit of honey in my tea, but honey is healthy too 😊.

The “perfect” cup of tea I think is a bit various from person to person, but my ” perfect” cup of tea is in general not to hot and not cold, more around 40 degrees I think ( Celsius) 🍵. And my favourite it ment tea with honey, but I do drink other tastes too …. with honey 😊.

I know I’m standing in front of some changes (and challenges too) in my life,- and like ny friend told me- changes is hard in the beginning, messy in the middle, but so gorgeous in the end. I choose to believe her, and in my mind I know that’s so true too. But to be honest,- I actually just want to “jump over” the hard and the messy and straight to the gorgeous 😅.

I know it’s not quite the way it’s “working”, so I, at the moment, do what I did in the beginning of April/ the Easter,- just relaxing a bit, sleep, work- of course, but is a bit nice to myself and don’t press my self to much. But just for a couple of days, before I really need to start working a bit hard for meeting the changes (and challenges) I have in front of me 🥀.

I don’t know “what or where” two or three months in front of me will bring me at the moment. In general we do think we know what we in a way can “expect” us from the days and daily lifes both two and three months in front of us. I know, because I have thought like that my self, even when the life actually have “teach” my something else now and then.

I also know I, one more time, I need to “put” some of my plans and wishes “on hold” for reaching, and special manage to handle the different changes I have in front of me at the moment. But okay,- that’s life 🥀.

I feel incredibly lucky and grateful that have some great friends that can help me “sort out” things in my mind and soul when things can feel a bit difficult, hard, messy and overwhelming 🧡. It’s good to not feel alone, even I know I’m in a way on my own too. I need to “walk the steps” to the changes on my own 😊.

I hope you are so lucky as I am with my great friends 🧡. That you can enjoy a cup of tea and have some nice conversation, nice conversations that both feels like medicine for the soul as well as helping you a bit with to sort things out now and then when you need it 🥀.

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 😊

Together with the tea we also had some homemade Norwegian waffles, jam and snacks 😊

Sometimes a cup of tea together with a good friend is like medicine for the soul 🍵. Just a good conversation can help to sort things out a bit, and be helpful to just take one or two steps at the time, instead of three months steps in front of you 😊.

A bit luxury today 🚿✂️👒

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

Today it’s felt a bit like a “luxury day” 😊. Yesterday evening I got my shower fixed, and now there’s nice hot water again 🥰. Lovely, just lovely after closely a month without 🚿. ( I have mention before,- things can takes a bit time now and then in Spain 🤭)

I’m really enjoyed the nice, warm water from my shower this morning 🥰

I had a 10 hours working day yesterday, so I was a bit tired when I was finish working and the shower was fixed. But I can promise you I really enjoyed my nice, warm shower this morning after closely a month with cold showers, “spiced up” with some boiled water 😅.

At least I have a shower and water, and also the possibility for boil some water too. Just that is actually a kind of luxury now at days. Many people don’t even have that kind of possibility for this “luxury”. I have and I’m very grateful for that 😊.

I need to admit I was a bit tired now in the end of this cold showers closely every morning, special because it has also been some cold, grey days too, so the house is a bit cold as well 😊. But I have actually a home to stay in and the possibility for a shower and clean water so I haven’t complained. I just needed a bit extra motivation for the cold showers now and then, but I manage to motivate my 😊. I like to be and feel clean, even when I’m actually “sourrende” by just myself most of the time at the moment 😊. And after a “water falls” sleep it’s really good with a shower, but, lucky for me, I haven’t had to many of “hot” nights during this month 😊.

I decided I wanted to “celebrate” a bit today then 🎉. Celebrate the nice, warm water in my shower. Celebrate that I’m actually very lucky with small, but still important “luxury” in the daily life 🥰. Celebrate and be grateful for what I have in my life 🥰.

I did “celebrate” with a visit to the hairdresser as well ✂️ 😊. Actually also a bit of a luxury 😊.

Me with a new haircut- done today ✂️😊

It’s actually 10 months since last time I visited the hairdresser, so it was a bit necessary, at least for my hair 😊. And it felt a bit like luxury to be able to go to the hairdresser too 😊. In my own way I celebrate the “small” things many takes for granted, but at the same there’s so many people who haven’t the possibility for clean water, a warm shower or a visit to the hairdresser.

I’m so lucky, and I feel so grateful for having this “simple”, but still so great necessities in my life 🧡. Unfortunately there is no obvious for all and everyone to have this “small” necessities in their life 😞.

And just to “top it all” an spoil myself a bit more, and I went to the store that sells my favourite ice coffee 🥰.

I don’t drink ice coffee every day anymore. I’m trying to save my money in different “areas” in my household, and one of then is to have an ice coffee or two just on Mondays and Tuesdays now, and not every day ☕. For me that’s the most busy and hard working days in the week. The days I’m most tired. So I “spoil” myself with an ice coffee or two this days then 😊. Except from today 🥰.

I did work 10 hours yesterday, and have in general working between 9 and 10 hours every day this week. And for closely one month I have started my day with a cold shower, not very volunteer, but because my hot water tank was broken. So today I choose to “celebrate” a bit with a new haircut and some ice coffee. Have a tiny “luxury” day in my life, and also feel on gratefulness because I actually have the opportunity for this small daily things in my life, like a warm shower 🥰.

I hope you have the possibility to spoil your self a bit today too 🧡.

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 🧡

My favourite ice coffee- I’m celebrating how lucky and grateful I’m 🥰.

Today it’s a bit “luxury” day for me, and I “celebrate” it with a visit to the hairdresser and bought some of my favourite ice coffee too 🥰. I just celebrate the “luxury” of nice, warm water in my shower 🚿,- as well as just feeling grateful for the “small” things in the daily life 🥰.
