Do I have a plan? 🤔😊🥀

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

I have got this question- “Do you have a plan?” a bit more then just a couple of times now after my children moved out from my home.

I’m not sure why I get this question ? 🤔 Don’t we all have one or another kind of a plan or three, maybe even more in and for our life? I had a plan before I became a mammi, some other plans in my life when I raised up my children, and some new plans now. But, yes, my different plans has changed a bit during both the years as well as when different things has happen in my life, as well as in our society. I think that’s normal? This changing in our plans? And it’s not even always we are changing our plans either, but things around us happens so the plans just changes a bit “on their own”.

So yes I had a plan, and I have a kind of a new plan too. Actually more then just one 😊. I just don’t like this question ” Do you have a plan?” to much, but that’s probably because I have got it a lot during the lasts months. And I can’t give any other good questions either, then just “Yes, I do- I do have plans, I just need to sort out a couple of things first”. But sometimes this can be a bit irritating question to get 🙄.

My plans at the moment goes a bit from day to day and not very much longer then one week at the time. Because the plan I had was not included any kind of moving this year, but obviously “someone” else had that plan for me.

So at the moment I feel I need to find a new “foothold” in a way in my life before I can start to work with to many and to “big” plans in my life. I felt I lost my “foothold”, the kind of “foothold” I had both when my children moved out as well as when I needed to move from one place to another too. It’s not there anymore, the “foothold” I had, but my “plans” are, my dreams, goals and wishes too. I just need to find a new and other way to try to “reach” them as well as work for them.

I hope that’s normal, and I hope that’s also okay that I don’t have “all and everything” in my new life and lifesituation “sorted out” at the moment?

I have plans,- a lots of plans too, in different forms and shapes and sizes and also area in my life 😊. But at the moment I choose to get my breath a bit back before I “get to work” with to much and to big plans 😊. Is that okay?

I have even created my own vision board some years ago with different goals, dreams, plans and wishes I do my best to reach in one or another way 🎨🤞🙏. And now and then I need to change something there, the plan, the goal or the way to reach what I want to reach 😊. But that’s fine, that’s okay, that’s the way it is. Then I try to create a new plan for my dreams, goals and wishes 😊.

Do you get this question a lot “Do you have any plans?” If you do,- do you tell “all and everyone” your different plans? Or do you just say “Yes, I do” or “No, I don’t”? And do you like to get this question? I’m fine with the question in general, but for some reason I have got it a lot the last months, so I’m a bit tired of it, special when my plans are in their own way are changing a bit too without to much help from me 😊.

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 vision board – filled up with plans, goals and wishes I do my best to reach little by little, step by step 😊

I have different plans in my life, dreams, goals and wishes, but sometimes they are changing a bit to yo another direction then I had in my mind 😊. Then it’s just to try to “follow up” as best as I can 😊. I have even my own vision board so I can work as consciously I manage to reach my goals, plans, wishes and dreams 😊.

The keys to some new “adventures” and experiences 🗝😊🧡

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

I have got the keys to my new place I’m going to have as a my home for awhile 🗝. And it feels actually a bit like a kind of a freedom to get the key, even I can’t explain why I feel it like that, like freedom.

And I feel I’m standing to a kind of start to some new adventures in my life too, but I have no idea what kind of adventures it is 😊. But I’m a bit excited, I need to admit that 😀. And I’m very tired- heard that one before?😅 And there will be some new experiences for me too, and I can “spoil” myself a bit as well. Spoil my self with just time to use to what ever I want and not just work in income for be able to pay for the next expenses that’s “waits around the corner ” 😊.

An adventure can at the moment closely be anything for me 😅. My days and weeks has mainly been working, sleeping, eating, packing and painting- I need to have a kind of timeout inbetween here 🎨. And wow, I’m surprised over how much I have manage to paint too 😳😀. It’s like the paint brushes has just “flying over” some different glass bottles when I’m “timing out”. I will show you when I’m a bit orginazed in my new home 😊.

An adventure for me at the moment don’t need to be any “big things”. This moving- process is just a new adventure in my life in it’s own way. And at the moment it can also be to read a book under the sun at the beach or the terrace. Or enjoy a glass of wine together with some friends. Last time I did that was in the end of March I think 😳. Or just visit some friends, or just enjoying my writing time in my blog…..or maybe even send an application for a job to the other side of the world? Or maybe get a visit and two from my neighbour from the area I’m living in at the moment?😊 Or something else I don’t know about yet.

I don’t need any big adventures in my life at the moment, just a bit different daily life and routines then I have had for more and less the last months 😊.

And here you can get a tiny tast from the terrace and the beach where I’m going to live very soon 😊

It will be a very new experience for me to move without having any of my children with me. I have never done that before. Well,- at least not after I became a mammi.

I haven’t had the best time to really “feel” about this “living without my children”- situation lately, but I need to admit that it was a bit hard and empty when my last baby duck moved out. But I didn’t get a very much time to feel about that one or this “start line in menopause” lately either before things changed in my life and my plans needed to change too😅. But maybe that’s a good thing? To not have to much time to “feel” to much on this empty feelings to live without my children anymore?

I have paid the first rent for my new home, as well as the last rent for my old home 😊. And it feels great 😊. It felt probably most great to pay the first rent for my new home. Not just because it is to my new home, but also because it was to Natasja, and not someone I don’t know 😊. And it’s so much easier to turn around the key to the door to my new home when the rent is paid. So during this weekend I’m going to move bags and boxes, because my oldest son’s girlfriend is so nice that she has borrowed her car to me so I can move a couple of things during the next days, and don’t need to use a moving car for two trips, just one trip 😊.

It’s strang how much and how many things and stuffs there are in wardrobe, cabinets and drawers 😳. It was a period I thought this house never should be empty from our things and stuffs, but now I see an “ending”,- and more and less everything are packed. It’s just some necessary things left now.

And I’m so so ready to move now, and so so tired of working and working and working 😴. But soon, in just a week or two things hopefully will changing a bit and I can use my time to a bit more exciting things then just work 😊.

This was just a tiny “drop in” from me today. I’m still here, but, unfortunately, not as much as I want to be at the moment 😊.

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 as soon as possible 😘

The key to my new home 🧡🏡

I have got the key to my new home, and maybe the key to some new adventures too? 🗝 Most of our things are packed and I’m ready for some new adventures and experiences in my life 😊. At least I hope I’m ready …. but I can not be sure yet. I was not ready for this new turn and a bit unexpected “moving- process ” in my life when that one “showed up” a couple of months ago 😅 – but now I’m more then ready 😊.

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 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 🥰.
