To a little baby girl 😊🧡

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

This weekend I visited a tiny, very new and so incredibly sweet little baby girl 🍼🧡. She is so beautiful 🥰. And of course I visited her mammi too. Her mammi is my great (Norwegian) friend, Line 😊. And it was so good to see them both 🥰. All is fine with the newborn and the mammi, and the daddy as well 😊.

And I’m the first one, except from the mammi and daddy, and of course the nurses and doctors, to see, meet and hold this little wonderful baby girl 🥰. I feel a bit honored over that, I need to admit that 🧡. And I’m really looking forward to get to know this little sweetheart 🥰.

I started to knit a baby blanket to the baby, I think in the middle of May, and I really wanted to be finish with the blanket as well as give it to Line before the baby was born. But I was not sure if I would manage it inbetween moving, jobs, glass bottles painting ( totally 27 🎨) ,and a bit more too 😅. But I did,- the blanket is finish, and Line got it just some days before her and her boyfriend’s baby was born 😊.

The blanket is knit with 100 % cotton so it’s nice and soft for the little baby girl. Maybe a bit to warm to use inside at the moment, or even outside too. Because we have some warm summer days here in Spain at the moment 🌞.

The knitted baby blanket- knit by me 🧶😊

I have started on some baby clothes too to this little baby girl. But in size 3 to 6 months, and 6 to 9 months. It’s a bit to warm for some knit clothes now, but there will be a colder Autumn and a Winter when soft and warm clothes are good to have 🧶.

And it is so strange to knit baby clothes. They are so tiny and small, and it goes so fast to knit them too, then to knit to adults. I’m actually finish with a jacket and a couple of trousers already to this little sweetheart 🧶🧡. But the baby will get them a bit later together with something more clothes. She doesn’t need knitted clothes like that at the moment, and it can be good to have some “bigger” clothes to choose between when the Autumn and winter is coming.

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 😊

The finish baby blanket knit in 100 % cotton 🧶. I actually forgot to write down the size before Igave the blanket to Line, but it’s more then big enough for the baby for many months 😊.

I didn’t thought I was going to manage finish the baby blanket before the baby to one of my great friend was born,- but I actually did 😊🧶. And this weekend I was so incredibly lucky to meet this little baby girl and her mammi too 🥰.

Thank you May 🌹Welcome unknown June 🏖

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

May is already soon over, and this month went even faster then the other ones this year 😳 😊.

My “life” in May has mainly contained four things : sleep, eat, work, pack down our life in this home I’m living in at the moment, and have been living in during closely 7 year.

And yes I’m very tired, but that’s the way it is. Soon it will be a bit more time to “fill” up with a bit more “exciting” and different things in my life like painting ( I have actually been painting in May too, some kind of “timeout” has been necessary 🎨), spend time with my friends and family, be in the sun and at the beach, read a book, write in my blog, watch some TV, do some work out, and hopefully a bit more too 😊.

Oh, I need to admit I miss this “things”, this part of my life, things that in a way are my life a bit more then my job and jobs are.

May started a bit “stressful” for me with trying to find a new home, and without knowing if I had a job to go to after 31. July too 😳.

But so fare, so lucky 🥰. I got a new home for at least the next 6 months, and I’m moving in 17. June 🏡. This- Thanks to my incredible good friend Natasja and her husband 🧡. And I also got the news that I will start in a other department 1. August,- so I still will have a job to go too 💻.

So ,- May,- I can be Thankful for fantastic friendship, the possibility for living in a new home and for my “new” job, and my online jobs too that “helps” me do some extra work to earn some extra money 🧡🌹.

But I need to admit it’s a bit hard to work between 9 to 11 hours 5 days a week, and between 6 to 8 hours in the weekends 😴. It’s not a complain, I’m incredibly grateful for having this opportunity, but the fact is, it is still hard 😊.

I’m earning between 6 to 8 euro pr hour in both the costumer service agent job and my online work. So to manage the different expenses I will have in June during this moving process it’s actually necessary for me to work as much as I do at the moment. But okay,- everything goes for a period, doesn’t it? 😊 And I actually have jobs. That’s not for all and everyone to have now at days 🥀.

I’m really looking forward to “meet” June now. I don’t know “all and everything” that will “shows up” during June. But I do know I’m going to pick up the key to the new home, and Im going to see Natasja too 🥰. And I’m going to move- something I’m really looking forward to do now😊. I’m very ready for saying Goodbye to this home now,- and the owner of this home “helped” me to even make it easier to say Goodbye and be ready for this moving- process 😊. They became actually mad because I can’t effort their new rent. So it feels a bit uncomfortable to live and stay here at the moment.

And I know I have a holiday week in June too, to just enjoy. The week after I have moved I have one week off from work 🥰. Just the thought of that feels a bit amazing 😊.

So I don’t have very much to tell you or write about at the moment. It’s not to much exciting things that has happen during the last 2- 3 weeks,- except from sleeping, eating, working, packing down a life. Or actually I have a bit to write about, but I need to “save it all” to days I have a bit more time to just enjoying writing in my blog instead 😊.

Today I just want to say Thank you so much May ( and Natasja 🌹) , for the incredible solutions that “showed up” in a time when I didn’t see so many solutions at all 🥰. I feel incredibly Grateful, lucky and happy for that 🥰.

And Welcome so much to you June, – I’m looking forward to “meet” you even I don’t know very much about you yet 🏖☀️.

And to you my dear readers, – I’m going to “drop by” my blog as much as I can, have the possibility and have the energy too during the nexts weeks. The time, my time will be a bit better and different in a couple of weeks when I’m “placed” close to the beach in a new home, and then you will “hear/ read” a bit more from me, that’s for sure 🏖😊.

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 😘

A bit tired Laila S- doing as best as I can at the moment 😊

I just want to say Thank you so much May for the solutions that showed up this month when I didn’t see so many solutions on my own 🌹. And Welcome June,- I don’t know very much about you, but I do know Im looking forward to meet you🌹, and I’m looking forward to move too 🏡

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 😊.

Yin and yang, or similarities? 🏵💮

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

I have been thinking a bit about dating and relationship,- and why it’s seems like it’s “working” for some and others are not so lucky in the dating and relationship area.

I’m not dating anyone at moment, and I’m actually not sure I want “to put my self” in a dating and relationship “position” again either. You can say I haven’t been in the category “to lucky” when it comes to dating and relationship 😊. So maybe it’s better to just not date then?

I have been thinking about friendship too,- and why friendship in general seems to last a bit longer than a relationship. In most “cases” of course. Friendship can ends too.

What is the case that causes a relationship to be stable and functioning? And what is that one that a friendship works and is mostly stable? I don’t know,- I have just my own thoughts and experiences around this,- and it’s not sure they are correct.

In Norway we have different expressions, – “like children play best” and “opposites attract each other “. Maybe you have heard the expressions before?

In my mind both are correct. In my mind both expressions have some “truth”. But maybe one expression “suits” better for relationships and the other for friendship?

“Opposites attract each other ” is in a way a bit similar with the “yin and yang” ,- a conversational concept within and in from Chinese philosophy.

Yin is based on the earthly principle, and yang is the heavenly principle.

It is about two opposite symbols, and different forces that complement each other.  Such as cold-hot, dark-light, passive-active. The forces must complement each other, get a balance, create an interaction.

And as we know from the world of physics, opposites attract each other.  The positive and negative magnet are attracted to each other.  And we must also have a positive and negative pole in a battery for the battery to work, for the electrons to go from pole to pole and create, for example, light in a flashlight 💡.

So in my mind and from this perspective it’s logic that “opposites attract each other “,- and can create a good, lovely, stable and long term relationship 💞.

But then we have the expression “like children play best“,- as mean people with the same interest, hobbies, attitudes, thoughts, lifestyles, ethics and so on also work very well together.

When it comes to my own experiences, relationship and the expression “opposites attract each other ” I need to admit I have been attracted to the “oposite” from my self. If you understand what I mean?

But how good it has been working is an other thing 😅.

When it comes to friendship my best friends and friendship are the ones from the expression “like children play best” 😊. Friends I have something in common with in one or another way. It can be different life- experiences or life – situation, it can be work or hobbies or similar opinions or thoughts about different things. But in general there’s more then one “similar” thing that “connect” us and our friendship together,- and there are different connections that keeping the friendship together, stable, good and positive 🧡.

Then we have the research. It has actually been, in fact, both expressions of friendship and relationships have been researched.

And research shows that we are attracted to, or want, the “opposite” of ourselves in the search for a partner.  But, – that the relationships that last the longest and are happiest are the ones that are “most similar”, – if you understand what I mean?

But when I take a look at my friends and their relationships, both friendship and partner relationships, – I see that both work very well. Both “like children play best” and “opposites attract each other “. So maybe something “works” better for some, and something else better for others? That it is not really “a fixed template” when it comes to “what’s the best functional” for an relationship and what’s best for a friendship? It’s a bit individual?

Like I mention,- for me my best friend and friendship are based on “like children play best“. We have something in common, and something that connects our friendship together. And like I also mention,- when it comes to dating or men I have in general been attracted to “opposites attract each other “. I can’t say if that’s way and the reason my dating and relationship hasn’t been working very well. It’s a bit more reasons connected to why it didn’t worked out and also why I chose to not date, at the moment or maybe “forever”.

But it’s not sure other have the same experiences as me in this case and area.

If I, one day, choose to “go back there” into the dating area I think it would and could be a good thing for me to have this in mind,- that maybe a good combination of both “like children play best” and “opposites attract each other ” will be the best solutions for me and a relationship? But will it be possible to meet someone where you feel both the expression are complete in one? 🤔

I don’t know, but I actually think it’s possible. It just depends what kind of like children play best” I need in the relation and what kinds of “opposites attract each other ” I need too 😊. At the moment I don’t know, time will show 😊.

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 didn’t had any “yin- ysng” symptoms- but I had a sweet panda- hecis from China too,- and with the colours he in his own way can represent and be a symbol for my text to day 😊

“Like children play best” and “opposites attract each other “,- two different expressions that are opposite from each other, but at the same time both can describe a good relationship and a good friendship 🏵. I don’t think there’s any “fixed template” for a good relationship or friendship 💞. I think it is a bit more individual than that 😊.
