Goodbye June, you went fast too ☀️, and welcome peaceful July 🌞

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

It’s some weeks since I dropped by my blog now, but I haven’t had the time to prioritize my blog or writing during the moving process. I also needed to cancel my lessons with my students, but I manage my customer service agent job and online freelance work, and of course move, clean, get things in order in the new place, as well as get “out of order” from the old place 😊.

There was days in June I felt was a bit “rough at the edges”, but when I think back today I think it was mostly because some days felt a bit more demanding then others, something that’s actually normal 😊. It just didn’t felt “normal” “there and then” 😊. You probably know how some of “those” days can be ?

And yes of course menopause also have “a finger in the game” during some of those days that’s feels a bit “rough at the edges”. That one can really “fuck up” the brain now and then, but I will come back to that subject in an other text.

I’m now “well installed” in my new home. The firsts days in this new place went to cleaning because this place has been empty for over a year. Or that’s actually not true. During this year some mice have been living and frolicking a bit, so there has been a bit of cleaning up after them 🐭. But now all is clean and I’m ready for a new start, and calm down a bit, find a bit peace, and maybe try to make a kind of plan for my future too 😊.

I also needed to make our “old home” in order for the owner, and I delivered the key back to the owner yesterday 🔑. And that felt so good, even my children and me have had a marvellous time and some great years in that house, and many, many good memories, it felt good to actually “close the door”, – if I can say it that way. And it is also incredibly good to not need to have anything more with the owner of the house to do. The home/ house was perfect for me and my children during this years. But the owner…

The owner, – well, that’s a other story, not worth to use to much time to tell about. I’m just happy she did live fare away so I just needed to deal with her once a year. Except from now at days. Just let me put it this way,- There’s just some people that give you a very bad feeling no matter how good you are trying to be.

But June hasn’t just contained “moving, cleaning and work”. In between ther also has been a couple of others “events ” too. Maybe more like daily and small “events” , but isn’t it that in it’s own way create the day and days?

There has been some new cold showers 😅, literally, in this new place too. I don’t understand why cold showers are “dropping by” into my life now at days 🚿, but okay,- yesterday that one was fixed so hopefully it will not be to many cold showers for a while now 😊. To be honest I have checked the hot water a couple of times now, just to be sure it still there 😅.

My pavilion blew off just a few days after it was set up and fastened in my new place 😳🌬. That one made me a bit sad, because I had made a cozy corner outside on the roof terrace, but okay,- what to do? Then it is to try to find an other solution, and I got some very good help for that one yesterday 😊. So now I have an other kind of pavilion and I’m very happy for that 🥰.

Just yesterday was filled up with some small “events” that in it’s own way create the day. I got hot water in the shower 🚿, I got an super solution for the pavilion on the roof terrace 🌞 and I delivered back the key to a finish capital in my life 🧡.

And believe it or not,- there has even been some men “dropping by” in my life in June too 😳. Well,- I actually didn’t let then drop by, but that’s a tiny story for an other day. I can’t tell you all and everything today 😊.

I have swear a lot too in June 😅, and in general I don’t do that. I swore I would not have a car where I live now.  It can sometimes be completely hopeless to find a parking space and place 😳.  I must admit that I have cursed over it a few times lately 🤯- and I swear very rarely🤐. So the once who knows me very well also know that swearing isn’t my thing, but when I do, I’m very serious about it too 😅. And I know swearing doesn’t give me any parking place, but still some few not to nice words dropped out off my lips 😅. And for some strange reason I in a way “have” a car even that wasn’t the plan, my plan 😅.

Irene, my oldest son’s girlfriend, – she borrowed me her car for some few days so I could move some bags and boxes, but for some reason now she just want me to have the car here until she needs it, and I don’t know when that is, but it has been for a couple of weeks now 😅. I’m very grateful for that, but it’s still a challenge to find a parking place 🚗. At the same time I feel very lucky to have the possibility for using her car when I need 🧡.

I have also sent in an application for a new job. A very different job then from other jobs I have done before in my life, and it’s not just a very different job, but it’s a job that is even in an other continent then I’m living in at the moment 😉🍇. Of course I will tell you a bit more about that one too, just not today 😊.

I have also manage to finish a baby blanket to a good friend of my that’s expecting her first baby now at days 🤰🧶. I needed to wait some days with the painting, but I have also touched my paint brushes again the last days 🎨.

So June,- a month I felt now and then was a bit “rough at the edges” wasn’t to bad at all when I’m looking back today 😊. It was a month “touched ” by the daily life, ups and downs, changes and challenges, – that’s for sure 😊. But also a month I have a lots of things to be grateful for. A warm shower, a nice place to stay outdoors, a cozy place to live for a while, great friends and good people around me, work, food on the table and a bit more too 🧡.

And I can very soon welcome July 🧡, I hope it will be a calm and peaceful month without to many feelings of “rough at the edges”, and without to many changes, challenges and feelings of “down” days. Because often it’s actually just a feeling of a down day or happening, it’s not sure it was so bad after all when we get a bit distance to it 😊.

I don’t know what I can expect from July at all. I just know what I can hope, dream and wish for as well as work for. But as most of us know, – thing can change very fast, also the things we are working for. There will probably be some changes in one or another way as well as some challenges, but hopefully not to much and not to big. I feel I need to get my breath back a tiny bit. The two last months has been a bit hard and challenging in it’s own way, and it could be nice with a tiny break from that 😊🌞.

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 🧡

And now I hopefully can say “See you soon “,- and actually see you a bit sooner then I have done lately 😊.

A cozy corner on my new roof terrace 😊

I have a so much to be Grateful for in June 🧡, even there was a couple of days I felt was a bit “rough at the edges”. I have fantastic friends, family and great people around me 🧡. I have hot water in the shower again 🚿, and a nice and cozy place to live and stay for a while 🧡. I’m not sure what July will bring into my life, but I wish the unknown July very welcome 💛.

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 😊.

Goodbye January 👋 ,- and Hello to you February 🤗

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

January is over, and to be honest I’m a bit happy for that 😊. In a way I actually feel a bit relieved that we are turning into a new month.

It feels like January was a bit stressful and chaotic month, but at the same time touched with different happy and nice “events” and happenings 😊.

It has been changes and challenges, knowledge and wisdom, and some new experiences too. Not to much of anything actually, at the same time some small “events” that can feel more than big enough when they are more and less coming like “beads on a string” 📿.

And like I just mention,- it’s actually not a very big deal most of the changes and challenges that has touched my life in January. They just feel a bit like that 😊.

To be honest I was not prepared to live together with one of my children again so soon after my last babyduckhad moved out. And my daughter was not prepared to live together with me again so soon after moving out either. That has been a tiny bit changes and challenges for both of us. But probably because it all happened so fast, and under some “unexpected” circumstances. But all in all I actually can say we, both she and me are doing well,- we was not just very hood prepared for changing our life- and living together situation in a sudden turn 😊.

It has been different things that needed to be reorganize in both her and my life. Her rent- contract together with her ex- boyfriend needed to be changed, different last of her things needed to be picked up at the apartment she was living in. We didn’t manage to pick up all in the beginning. And there’s had been a couple of hospital visits too, just to check that the different “damage” in her body was healing the way they should.

And then there has been some few other challenges, not critical at all, but the internet collapsed, the fridge, freezer and oven closely said “bye- bye”. And the television obviously lives it’s own life after a very stormy weekend with both a lots of rain and even snow. Non of this are actually a big deal, but when it feels like it “all” happens at the same time it can feels a tiny bit chaotic together with the rest of the things we need to handle in January.

And then I ( and my colleagues) also got the news that the department we are working for are going to close down in Norway in June this year. That was not the best news to get. I really like the department I’m working for at the moment, so it feels a bit sad that I’m not going to be working there anymore. But the company I’m working for have already organised a new job for all of us to an other department. I’m starting there in the end if March or beginning of April.

I have also sendt my CV to two other jobs, – just in case. I don’t know if I will get one of them, but I need to admit I cross my fingers for that. At the same time as I feel lucky because I will anyway have a new job to go to in a couple months.

My birthday is also in the end of January, and I’m now actually 48 years old 😳 😊. No celebration this year. It’s actually 10 years since I have celebrate or had any kind of marking of my birthday. Last time was to my 38 year birthday so I’m actually use to not have any birthday- celebration or marking of my birthday. No hard feelings for that😊. But of course I have some different thoughts about getting older even I, at the moment, at the same time haven’t had to much time to think about this “getting older process” either. An it can be interesting to be 48 year old, and maybe be richer and wiser? 😅

I haven’t had so much time for my freelance work as I should in January, but on the other hand I have been teaching and I have also been knitting, painting and even baking a bit. And being a mammi 🧡.

It’s a couple of things that’s easier to do when I’m alone then sourrende by someone. And that’s my freelance work, writing my blog and study Spanish. I just need to focus as best as I can on my freelance work and my blog, and focus more on the Spanish language studies later.

And I had also a very nice and cozy visit from friend in January with a movie- evening and a sleepover. We have curfew between 22.00 in the evening to 06.00 in the morning. So then it’s best to choose to have a sleepover visit 😊.

I also needed to reorganize our things and stuffs in Norway from one place to another while we are waiting for those things to be able to be removed from Norway to Spain. Lucky for me my parents and my son in the middle helped us with that one. Something I’m very grateful for 🧡.

So, yes,- I feel January was a bit busy and challenged month, but here we are, turning “the page” over to February 😊.

I do not know what expectations I have for February. I know I need to have a meeting in the bank and stop some payments to a internet company. And I need to go to the post office, and I also need to get a new passport.

Free shiping over 69$

All this offices are just open when I’m at work. But lucky for me, I’m working together with some great colleagues, and I know they can change shifts with me. The challenge will be the passport, because that one I need to do in an other city then I live in, and at the moment the borders between the cities are closed.

I also know I need to start up again with my workout and exercises. Phu,- but I’m getting older and I want to take care of my health, and a part of taking care of my health is to do some regular workout and exercises. And I know I need to try my very best to focus more and harder on my freelance work.

My daughter is still going to live with me during February 😊. And I’m probably going to continue work fulltime from home 😊. I hope I get some positive feedback on one off the CV I have sent out. And maybe I can have a new movie- evening and sleepover together with my friend too? That would actually be very nice 😊.

And maybe we also will get our first part of our things and stuffs from Norway in the end of February too? I don’t know yet.

It’s a couple of things to do in February too, but I still hope February will be a bit more calm then January was 😊. At the moment is just to say,- Hello and welcome Februar. I hope you will be a bit calmer than January was ❄😊.

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 🧡

See you soon 😊

I became 48 year in January- hopefully that will be an interesting age to be in 😊

Bye- Bye busy January 😊. My birthday month was a bit busy, and it felt actually a bit good to turn “the page” to February now 😊. I don’t know how February will be, or what kind of “suprices” that one can “show up” with. What I do know so fare is that it will probably not be a boring month 😊. There’s “always” things to do 😊.
