A good cup of tea with honey 🍵🍯

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

A good cup of tea with honey can “fix” different things, like for example a good, “old” and very normal cold 🧣😊.

This weekend had been a “silent” weekend for me, relaxing and taking a bit care of myself 🍵. The weekend has contain a bit freelance creative writing work, a bit more painting, even some “photo shoots” of some of my painted glassbottles 📸, and watching some movies, and of course drinking some cups tea with honey ( not just drinking tea- I have eating food too 😅). Actually a nice and relaxing weekend just for me and myself 😊. A bit “lazy” weekend 😊.

I should meet some friends for a dinner Saturday afternoon, but I didn’t took the chance to meet up because I had a tiny cold 🧣. So I didn’t went to the dinner 😔. But I had probably went to the dinner with my friends and the cold, if we haven’t had this corona- situation around us. But now at days it’s better to be careful one time to much then one time to less 😊.

And I’m so much better with the cold too. It took just a couple of days to be “back in business” and with out any sneezing and “runny” nose too 🤧. A cup or three tea with honey can help for different things- also a good, “old” and very normal cold 🤧🧣🍵.

No sneezing and no stuffy, and at the same time, “runny” nose 🤧. And I’m pretty sure it’s the nice mix of tea with honey and just a relaxing “timeout” weekend that’s fixed that very, good “old” cold 🧣. Because it’s possible to just have a very normal and ordinary “good” old cold now at days too. Luckily not “all” sneezing is with the “touch” of a variant or two of the coronavirus 😊.

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 favourite tea cup with my favourite tea (mint tea), a touch or thred with honey “spiced” up with some garlic and ginger 🍵🍯

A cup and two of tea with honey can be very good for “fixing” a very normal, “good old” cold 🧣🍵. Just in a couple of days my “good old sneezing” cold was gone 🤧😊.

Getting sciatica was not a very good thing 😳

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

You have got some days without any textes from me now, a tiny break from me 😊. Yhat wasn’t quite my plan. But as we know- plans changes now and then and inbetween 😊.

I got a terrible sciatica 😳. To be honest I didn’t knew it was sciatica in the beginning, I thought it was something a bit more “dangerous” and serious then that.

I couldn’t walk or sit or lay down in a proper way, not even stand up to long 😅. I can laugh now, but I didn’t laugh very much at that point. I was actually a bit worried 😳.

And I felt the pain was in some way like “everywhere” in my body , but at the same time “located” one place- from my back and down to my left leg. It was a kind of “confusing” pain.

When I found out that it was “just” sciatica I felt relieved- phu- nothing worse then that, and with some moving and exercises it slowly disappeared 😊. So it’s time to seriously start up again with my regular workout and exercises routines I had…..2 years ago 😳.

It’s a bit scary how the time in it’s own way has just flew away during this two last “Corona- years”, at the same time the life feels a bit is more “silent” or “on hold” then it was before the coronavirus of different kinds and types did dropped by in our society and world.

Well,- The life hasn’t been “silent” or “on hold” – a lost of different kinds of things has happen I my life, special this “moving- my kids and my self in and out from the home” 😊. But I think still maybe you understand what I mean with “silent years”?

I don’t know if you have had sciatica once or twice? If you have had, you probably know what I mean about the “confusing” pain in the whole body at the same time as it was located in one place in your body? And you also maybe and probably remember the pain? 😳 Seriously not very good. And the mood? You can say that one was not quite on top either, but I became much better when I knew it was “only” sciatica 😊.

I’m much, much better now, the mood is better too 😁, and I also know that I need to start up again with some regular workout and exercises routines again so I can do my best to avoid to get to much sciatica in the future.

I remember I did have sciatica one time when I was in my 30’s and I felt very old at that moment 😅. In my mind it was in general older people who got sciatica. I didn’t felt to old this time for some strang reasons, just very relieved that it was only sciatica 😊. Well,- that was a thrut with modification 😅. I felt a bit old this time too, but I except more “old- body” situations now- because I’m actually older 😊. But still a bit “childish” now and then too, special Mathilde (my daughter) and Marius ( my oldest son) think I’m a bit childish when I’m walking around with my favourite face mask 😷. I think they both would prefer I used a more anonymous face mask in my age 😅.

But like I told them – I’m so old, I even got sciatica, so old am I, so I’m actually allowed to be a bit childish now and then, and to use my childish face mask doesn’t harm anyone. Aren’t you agree? 😊

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 😊

With my favourite face mask 😷 Isn’t it sweet ? 🥰 ( I got this from Natasja during Halloween in 2021….I think…..or 2020?)

I’m have felt a bit “on the age” lately- this “getting older” process in the body 😅. But that’s the way it is, and since I’m getting older I allowed myself to be a bit “childish” inbetween and use my favourite mask “all the time” at least when I’m outsid 😷.

A year ago ❤🛫

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

Today it’s a year since my middle son did moved to Norway 🧡. A year since I have hugged him and kissed him.

I’m not the only mammi that haven’t been able to kiss and hug my child, my young adult child, in a year. And that’s because of this corona- situation.

I really miss him. Miss to have him around me, not live together, but just be able to see him now and then, like I did when he was living in Spain. To hug him, kiss him.

I’m very grateful for the possibility to text him, talk with him and see him on “facetime” like WhatsUp and Messenger. And I know all is fine with him up there in Norway ❤.

He have a job, he is soon finish with the driving license, he is training football and exercises, he is spending time together with family and friends, and has even found an apartment he wants to buy 😊.

His plan was to visit me, us, here in Spain during this summer, but it became a bit difficult because of different restrictions during travelling to Spain from Norway. Special Spain. Because Spain has, and in a way still is, a very “red” country for Norway when it’s comes to the corona- situation.

Hopefully he will be able to visit me in Spain during this Autumn, but I don’t know yet, we don’t know yet.

A year goes fast and still so slow, and we do manage to “put in” all kind of different experiences during a year. In one way this year has went fast, in another when it comes to my middle son, I feel it’s like forever since I hugged him ❤.

I’m very grateful all is fine with him, he is healthy and he is enjoying his life, he is a young adult and it’s natural that he lives his own life, but sometimes it’s a bit to fare away. I’m a bit to fare away from him, he is a bit to fare away from me ❤. But this is life, special during this corona- situation.

I miss my middle son, I think of him every day, I text him, and I’m so lucky that I’m able to “see” him and at least give him some “air” – kisses and “air” hugs during Messenger or What’s Up ❤. It’s not for all mammi’s to be able to do that.

And I’m incredibly grateful he is doing well up there in Norway ❤. He is happy in his life, he is enjoying his life ❤. And I’m incredibly proud of him and proud he is my son and proud to be his mammi ❤.

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 😊

This photo was taken one year ago at the airport in Malaga/ Spain- my middle son and me ❤ A photo that tells more then any words can say ❤

One year ago my middle son did moved to Norway, and I haven’t been able to see him, hug him or kiss him during this year ❤. I really miss him, but at the same time I’m very grateful he is doing well and is happy in his life❤. And I’m very grateful for things like What’s Up and Messenger too ❤.

This time of the year 🌞🏖 🎒

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

At this time of the year I had already had holiday guests and friends at visit from Norway as well as I actually know who is coming for visit and when closely during the rest of the year. But not this year, and not last year either.

Last year my home was filled up with “guests”,- my children and some of their friends, but non of my friends from Norway was here. And that’s because of the corona- situation.

I don’t know if there will be any visitors,- like friends and family from Norway this year either. Because of the corona- situation.

In general in April I have already had some visits from friends and family in Norway, and I more and less did knew who was coming in May, June, July, August, September and October.

My friends and family in Norway has been very good to planned their holidays here in my home, and they ask in good time before they even order their trip to Spain and when it’s best for me to have guests.

I’m working, and I have no possibility for take some days off from my job every month from April to October. And I haven’t enough room and space to have them “all at once” either 😊.

Therefore, visitors must be distributed a little throughout the year so that I get good quality time with each one, although I also have to take into account my job.

In general I have at least one visit from Norway every month from April to October. It’s really nice, cozy and so good to see them. But of course also a bit busy to be a hostess in between my job 😊.

Last year was okay, I was actually fine with the fact that no one from Norway could come and visit me here in Spain. My home was already “full booked” 😊.

But I need to admit I don’t like the thought of not having any visitors from Norway this year. No friends, no family. It feels actually a bit sad 😞.

I do understand the corona- situation and why people can’t travel so much “here and there and everywhere” now at days, but still I need to admit it’s feels sad.

I miss my friends and family up there in Norway,- and I like to have vist from them from April to October, even it can be a bit busy with so many guests during 7 months in the year. But still it’s worth the business 😊.

I have had it like this actually since we moved to Spain. Every year the holiday guests starts coming in April, and the last one arrives (and travel back to Norway) in October 😊. It has become a kind of nice and cozy “routines” during the Spring, Summer and Autumn, and inbetween my work 😊.

I know a femal friend of me in Norway is full vaccinated now, or finished vaccine for COVID19. She actually comes a week to ten days three times a year. I have a little hope that she might come to visit one or twice this year. But I do not know.

And of course I hope and wish there will come some more visit from Norway to me during this year, but I need to admit I have my doubts if anyone actually are coming.

What do I do with this summer then?😳 I’m actually use to “fill up” my days and home with some friends and family from Norway now and then during this time of the year,- from April to October 😊.

But,- I will probably manage to create some lovely days together with my friends and children here in Spain too 🌞. So I will not be totally alone all the time 😊.

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 😊

Hopefully there will be some few guests from Norway this year,- but I don’t know yet 😊.

At this time of the year normally I already had some visits from my family and friends in Norway, as well as I in general know how is coming the next weeks and months 😊. But not this year. Maybe there will come some holiday guests, maybe not. Time will show 😊.

Oh, I got more glassbottles and I didn’t need to drink the wine either 🍾🥂😊

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

Like some of you know I like to paint on glassbottles like for example winebottles, beerbottles , cavabottles and a bit more 🎨. But since I don’t drink different kinds of alcohol very much myself I can have a tiny challenge to actually get different kinds of glassbottles to paint on 🍾.

My daughter did actually had a back bag with her on the New Year Party she was at in the new year evening 2020/ 2021😅. And brought home different kinds of glassbottles to me 😊. But my basket with glassbottles are starting to get empty again 😳. Then what to do?Start drinking a lot or send my daughter to a new party with a back bag on her back? Or actually invite my best friend Natasja to visit me and ask her to bring some empty winebottles from her cafe in La Cala? 😍 I invited Natasja 😊.

Look at my soon empty glassbottles basket 😳😊

It’s not totally true that I actually invited Natasja to visit me so I could get more winebottles. It’s over 3 months since we had met, and I really do miss her. And at the moment the city borders are open, so I invited her to visit me for a nice chatt before the Easter is showing up and the city borders are closing down again for the Easter. And I also wanted to give her the glassbottles I have painted to her 🎨. Hopefully we can met up a bit more then every 3 month after the Easter 🥰.

It was after I had invited her it actually did dropped my mind that maybe she could have some empty glassbottles of different kinds after her guests in her cozy cafe. And she had,- actually a bag of empty glassbottles to bring me 😊. And PS,- if you are in Spain and La Cala, – it’s worth to visit the cafe Case Barella for some great and tasty food, good drinks and a very cozy atmosphere 🍔🍷.

I’m very happy for all the empty glassbottles I got from Natasja, but I’m more grateful for the visit 🥰. It was so nice to see her again, hug her, chatt up, just spend some really good quality time together 😊.

It’s strang how this corona- situation has changed out social needs. Not the habits, but our needs. Our social habits are in so many ways controlled by different restrictions, something that also, of course, changes our social needs. But I should think and believe that we would get an ever stronger and bigger need to “meet up” when we had the chance? But it’s actually not quite like that for many people. It’s, unfortunately, the opposite. For many, including me, and some of my friends too, it’s more difficult to “move my ass” from my sofa and home and socials then it was before the corona- situation.

I’m not sure why it’s became like this, because it maybe should be, like I mention, the opposite? It can be different reasons like use of mask, or worries for the coronavirus? I don’t know.

But I know I’m very grateful that Natasja wanted to visit me 🧡. It was so great to see her again and talk about about “all and everything”, and actually not to much about the coronavirus. It’s really good to take a break from that “subject” now and then. And we are good to take a break from it and find some other, better and more interesting subjects to talk about instead 😊. I’m so grateful for having her in my life and for this vist and “timeout” 🥰.

And now I can take my own break too from the “corona- situation” and “drop” down in more winebottles and paint and create and be creative 🎨.

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 this,- a bag filled up with empty glassbottles or different kinds – just ready to get some new illustrations from me 🎨

My basket with glassbottles is starting to get empty, but after a lovely visit from one of my best friends my basket is filled up again with a lots of possibility for me to be creative 🎨. But the best thing was still the visit, a great “timeout” with good chatts, laughter and great conversations together with my friend 🥰.
