It has been a bit difficult to be a bit “mammi” for my daughter lately 😳 💊🧪

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

I haven’t seen my daughter for a while, – and it’s a reason for that 😳. Last time she and her boyfriend, Caprino, visit me was 8. July, and she was not quite “tipp- topp” that day, but I thought she maybe just was a bit tired 😴. And of course I did hug her that day, a lot too 😳….but after some days I was not so sure how smart that hugging was? 🤔

Just a few days after they had visited me she became sick, and texted me about the symptoms and how to contact the doctor and so on. This is just not typical her. In general she actually try to do her best to go or do her work even when she doesn’t feel very well, and she try to avoid the doctors as best as she can too. So she must felt very bad 😔.

I actually asked her if she wanted to come to me and stay in my home for some days and get some “mammi-love and care” when she was sick. I wanted to take a bit care of her, cut up apples into small pieces for her the way she likes so much to get when she is sick 🍏🍎. But she didn’t had the energy to come, and lucky for me actually, – and she also have a love and caring boyfriend, so he have taken care of her as best as he can during the last two weeks 🥰. And the best thing, at the same time strange thing,- her boyfriend hasn’t been as sick as my daughter so he could actually take good care of her too 🧡.

But I’m just a mammi, and I was suddenly in a “situation” where I actually wasn’t quite sure what to do. Should I visit her or not? Special because I wasn’t either sure why she was sick…..and what kind of sickness it was? Maybe she had got something “grumpy stuff” that I could get too if I was to close to her? 🤔

Should I visit my daughter or not? I was not sure what to do or how to handle the “situation” 😔.

In general my daughter answer my textes when I’m sending her a text on Messenger, What’s up or on Snapchat. But during this two last weeks she has been incredibly slow with the answering, and then the mammi heart gets a bit worried, special because I knew she didn’t felt very well 😳. At the same time,- she is a young adult woman, she lives on her own, well not totally, – she lives together with her boyfriend and their two cats 🐱, and have no reason to “update” the mammi “all the time”, not even answer me if it’s not a concrete question I’m sending to her. But we have the contact we have,’ so I’m actually used to answers from her, even on texts without any specific questions.

I did call her on the phone too, but she didn’t answer, just texted me “What?” back instead 😳. Oh my,- I knew something was wrong or she was really sick 😳. But what to do? Send her “all my love and heart and thinkg of you” at least 🧡.

She had been to the doctor several times, and today her doctor called me up on my phone 😳. I got the heart up in my throat 😳. But he just wanted to tell me it was incredible important that my daughter went to the hospital today as soon as possible, so then she did….and phu,- she was with me on the phone too 🙂.

She send my an video Snapchat where she also texted me “It’s never a good sign when you are put in the waiting room totally alone” 😳. And of course it’s not a good sign,- but at least she got the answer from the different testes she have been through,- and of course a version of the coronavirus just needed to drop by into my family too 😔.

A part of over “conversation” today, – but in Norwegian.

Actually I knew it could be something like this,- and that’s why I was so unsure what to do? Visit her or not? Taking care of her or not? And get the virus myself too 🤔? Nope, I didn’t want that either.

The result from my daughter’s test at the hospital today.

So it has been a bit difficult to be a bit mammi for my daughter thise two last weeks,- or that’s not totally true,- I’m always her mammi and it’s not difficult either 😅 , but this time I had no possibility to take care of her in any other way then text her and call her when she was sick and also needed a bit of the “mammi care and love” just because she was sick 🌹.

But that’s the way it is now at days when some or another version of the coronavirus are “tumbling around the corners” 😳.

To avoid more infection of the virus and spread it’s just to keep distance as best as we can, even when our young adults children are sick and you actually just want to visit them, hug them a bit and take care of them ❤. But the best was not to do that this time, in this situation, even I didn’t like it very much, and try my best to avoid any infection or spreading the virus in some or another way.

I really hope you do your best to avoid infection and spread the virus in some or another way. I know it’s not easy now at days, but to do our best is still better then nothing. Remember to keep distance, remember the mask ( I don’t like the mask- but Im still following the restrictions), and remember to wash your hands. And also try as best as you can to have as few “close contacts” as possible,- it’s actually helps a big that too. But yes I need to admit I do hug my contacts- my children, my friends,- even I know I can get and I can give the coronavirus by a hug.

Take as good care as you can, – that’s actually “all” we can do during this corona- situation. It is what it is, and we need to try to do our best in the situation we all are in 🧡. The best is always better then nothing 🌹.

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 daughter, Mathilde and her boyfriend, Caprino, the last time they visited me before she got sick 🧡

I’m just a mammi, and I was suddenly  in a “situation” where I actually wasn’t quite sure what to do 🤔 ? Visit my daughter or not? Taking care of her or not 🤔? Lucky for me she have someone special in her life that takes care of her 🧡. Special because I actually just don’t want this “grumpy stuff” that’s are “around the corners ” now at days 😳.

I have actually said yes to a date 🥀😊

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

My plan was actually not to date for a while, and it has also been a very long time since I have been on a date too. But I did say yes to a date this weekend. I still don’t feel very “ready” for dating, but I have known this man for seven years, and I know we have different things to talk about too, something that’s good to have when you are on a date. And we, in our own way, did “date” for around three years before we stopped dating four years ago.

So that’s one of the reason why I said “Yes, I want to go out on a date with you”. Because I know him, we can talk together and have different things to talk about too. And the other reason,- well,- to be honest, it could be nice to be hugged and cuddled a bit with, and get some nice and positive attention too 😊. And dress myself up a bit as well. And at least I know “what I get” from him, this date, both in the positive directions as well as the bit less positive directions too 😊.

And yes,- it’s my “old” neighbour, the Spanish policeman who asked me out for a date 😊. He is actually not “old”,- I think he is maybe 6 or 7 years younger then me to be honest. So I’m the “old” one here 😅.

He is, as I mention, a policeman, and in his job he is in contact with a lots of different people ….. people with and without the coronavirus too 😳. And he has got thise two “magical” vaccines related to the coronavirus and Covid19 as well, just because of his job, but still he needed to cancel our date this weekend and be in 10 days of quarantine because of the contact with a person who had the coronavirus 😳.

He did tested negative on the first Covid19/ corona test, but positive on the second one, just two days after. So now it’s 10 days home alone together with his two cats for him instead of being on a nice and cozy date together with me 😅. …(…but I actually don’t understand the vaccine “concept” if it’s this way it’s in “function “?🤔)

So here I’m standing dressed up and ready for a cancelled date 😳. A date I actually was looking forward to. What to do then? 🤔 Send a online “request” “all over the world” and ask if someone else wants to date me a bit this weekend?😅😊

I’m just kidding,- he did let me know about the quarantine long before I did dressed up and got ready for dating 😊. I’m actually just dressed up for some shopping and fixing internet a bit, nothing more, nothing less 😊. It’s judt nice to dress up now and then even for some shopping too, and hopefully I can “charm” the internet guy so much that my internet speeds up a bit as well 😊.

So instead of dating this weekend I’m just going to work a bit with my freelance work, and enjoy the sun, the beach, the sand, the ocean, and my roof terrace as well, a lot 🌞🍷. Just relax and taking care of myself 🧡. Easy peacy 😘.

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 😊

I like to dress up a bit, maybe even more now then before 😊 Getting ready for a date… or just shopping 😉

So here I’m standing dressed up and ready for a date 😳….a cancelled date because of a positive corona test,- but it was not my test. What to do then? 🤔 I’m just going to relax and taking care of myself instead 🧡. Easy peacy 😘.

March month tends to argue a little 🥀😳😊

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

In general I feel March month has a tends to “argue” a little bit 🌱. I feel this month it’s in its own way colour up with some grey colours. I’m not sure why it is like this. Maybe because it is the month after the wintertime and before the Spring- time? As a kind of “month in between the sessions” ? A bit “grey- coloured” month?

When I was living in Norway this was a heavy economic month. I was closely over the different expenses after December and the Christmas- time, and then March dropped up with a lots of different new experiences. It was not just like that for me, but for many people in Norway. March was “the big” experiences month for many. And of course it was hard, even when you tried to put away money for this month it was hard.

To be honest I don’t remember the first March months after we moved to Spain, but I do remember the 3 last ones. And they was all touched a bit of the grey colour. But when that’s said, – this is only my “experiences” 😊.

March 2019 I got a job and felt very happy for that. I had been without a work- contract for some months, and was just earning my money at freelance work. Something that actually can be a bit hard because the available work can various from nothing to a lot. And when it’s no work to do, there’s no money to earn either.

But this job I got was not the easiest job for me to do. The costumer service job was fine, but the Amadeus program was not easy to handle- for me. And my car had flat wheels too, so I needed to walk to the job and back home. It took me one hour each way, so I was away from my home around 10 hours 5 days a week and a bit tired when I was back to my home after a day at work 😴.

I couldn’t effort using money on the train ticket to the work either, because I needed to use the money I had on the regular expenses like the rent, electricity, water, food and new wheels too. And, unfortunately, when March was closely over I got the message that I was not good enough to continue doing this kind of work 😔. So yes, I do remember March 2019 very well, and not as the best month in my life. More like a bit of hard and challenging month.

Then it was back to the freelance work again. I actually really do like to work as a freelancer, but I have also learned that I at least need to have at least 50 % of my regular work on a basic working contract so I at least know I will manage to pay for the regular expenses like the rent, the electricity and water. Food too, of course, but I in general manage to earn enough to the food during my freelance work, even when there’s weeks or periods without to much freelance work to do.

Last year, in March 2020 this coronavirus dropped off in our society, and we all got curfew 😳. And we got a lots of different restrictions to follow too. My oldest son and his friend was living together with me at that time, but was actually “on the way out” to their own home. That didn’t happen.

March 2020 was not as hard as the year before, but very, very different then we was use to live in general. And it was a bit challenging to learn to live by curfew and restrictions, be inside our home more and less 24 hours 🕰. And also listen to the sound of helicopter over our homes as well as “meet” the police on the way to the store.

This year,- well this March has also has it’s different challenges, but again different from last year 😊. This time it feels a bit more like there has dropped up a tiny challenge now and then during the day or week. Challenges that’s in general can be handle, but sometimes takes a bit time to get finish with 😊. And to be honest,- I haven’t share “all” the different challenges I have met on during March. I like to try my best to focus on the positive things, and it has been many positive happenings for me during this March to choose to focus on instead 😊. But of course it is a bit hard to “correct up” the economy again after trying to help my kids out. Special when I have been a bit (very much to be honest,- but I think it’s the age) tired too, and actually prefer to sleep instead of working 😴😅.

But I knew already in the beginning of March that this was going to be a bit busy month with different aspects in life as both work and family, and a bit lack of time to “all and everything” 😊.

I’m going to share some few of the challenges I have met during March with you during in some very few post during April. They are not a big deal actually, and even better to share when I have fixed the challenges so you can get the “whole story” from the beginning to the happy end instead 😊.

So maybe March will be easier and easier “to handle” the next years, there in the future 😊? And I don’t will look at this month with a touch of grey colours in the future? 😊

I’m not sure if you have some months during the year you feel are a bit more “grey coloured” even before they are “showing up”? Just because of some earlier not to good experiences? I have March, and of all the things also October and November too. At the same time as this months are some of my best months because my son in the middle is born in one, and my daughter in the other 💙❤. Strange? Yes, it is, – but that’s the way it is 😊.

Anyway,- soon March is over and some “new adventures” are ready to be explored and experienced just around the corner 😊🧡.

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 😊

Sometimes I feel March is coloured up with a bit of grey colours, and also that “the wheels” are standing a bit still, and different challenges has a habit to be “connected” to the standing still wheels too 😊.

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 🥰.

I feel my face is in prison 😷😅 …but there’s some positive things too 🤭😷

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

I don’t think I’m the only one that not is the biggest fan of this face masks use? 😷 But what to do? Hopefully this mask restrictions will be over one day and we all can show our beautiful smiles to each other again? 😁

To be honest,- I do feel my face is a bit in like a tiny prison, well,- at least my mouth when I’m using this mask 😷. And of course it feels like that, it’s very covered up 😷. And of course I can find some negative reasons and thoughts, and I can complain a lot too, of this mask use 😅. But will it help? Will it do me well? No, I don’t think so 😊. I need to use it anyway 😷.

So I started to think about some few positive (and actually stupid, but so what 🤭) things with this mask use, and then not just to avoid to be infected or infect other with this coronavirus.

You don’t need to use money on filler because no one sees it anyway 👄. And the lipstick it’s not very necessary either. No one sees that one either and ut will just colour off the inside of the mask.

If you forget to brush your teeth before you go out it’s only you that need to smell your not to good breath …. inside the mask 😷. And if there’s something between your teeth no one will notice that either 🤭. And your wrinkles, no needs to worried about them either, no one sees them under the mask.

And if you want to stretch your tongue / yawn to someone you think is a little stupid, or thst you are not the biggest fan of, no one sees you doing it under the mask 🤪. And if you see someone that’s a bit good “to rest your eyes” at, and maybe even what to send a tiny kiss to this person, but don’t take the chance. You can send him/ her a kiss under the mask if you want 💋. You can even make a fake smile under your mask, and no one will notice.

If you use a lost creams and foundation and so on ( to be honest I actually don’t know what all the different creams you can use in your face are called) in your face, you actually just use just the half of what you normally use, because the mask is covering the rest half of your face anyway 😷.

And the pimples and blackheads around the nose, mouth and chin are also hidden under the mask.

And if your nose is runny with snot, no one sees it either.  But, – it’s probably a little uncomfortable to feel it yourself.

And the mask is actually like a warm cover over the face during cold and windy days. You don’t need any scarf to cover your face on a cold day because you have the mask 🧣.

So there’s some tiny small positive things to think about and focus around when the irritating and negative thoughts about this mask use are coming crawling into my or yours mind 😷😊. But I still do feel my mouth is in a tiny prison anyway when I’m walking around with my mask. That’s the way it is 😊. And Im still looking forward to not use the mask in public one day 😷.

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 😊

I’m not the biggest fan of this mask usr- but I use it and tey to think about something positive around the mask use instead 😊😷.

There’s some tiny small positive things to think about and focus around when the irritating and negative thoughts about this mask use are coming crawling into my or yours mind 😷😊. But even with some few positive thoughts Im still looking forward to not use the mask in public one day in the future 😷.
