But there’s some “issues” too during this “new Spring” in life 😳🥀

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

During this “new Spring” in life there’s also some rainy and stormy days too. I don’t have the biggest challenges during this pre perimenopause, but there’s some issues, or tiny challenges that’s dropping by. And I don’t know what this period in my life can or will bring me later, so I at least choose to enjoy the changes I do like at the moment,- like for example my body changes 😊.

But I still need to “deal” with some few other issues, or rainy and stormy days, if you want. It’s not to much to complain about, in general this issues are not difficult to deal with, and don’t last very long either. But when they “shows up” it’s quite fine to be alone, and “deal” with them in my own way 😊. Another thing,- in general I don’t know when the “issues” are dropping by. Because that’s exactly what they are doing,- dropping by exactly when it suits them, and not me. It’s nothing I can choose or control.

In short periods I have had water in my body, causing the hormone changes. And also one of the reasons why it didn’t dropped my mind that I could have put on weight when my winter clothes felt a bit thigh.

It has mainly been in my feet, ankles to be more correct, and sometimes in my hands too. It’s not often, and not to bad, but it is uncomfortable. And I have never had any kind of water like that in my body before. I think the closest “water in my body” was the water in my stomach under my pregnancies 💧.

And I’m still not “leaking” (thank so much for that 🙏),– and I really hope I can avoid that too, even I know it is natural for a woman to have or get some “water leakage” in a certain age. I’m really doing my “exercises” ,- “pinch and hold and pinch a little more”. Hopefully that will help forever to avoid any kind of water leakage 🤞.

And my stomach,- also that one can be a bit “troubling” now and then. It can feels like it is a marble in there 😳. But it’s not, and of course the marble also “disappear”, but not always when I want. I just need to give it a bit of time and maybe a prune and two 😅. But of course this marble in my stomach also has been a reason for why I didn’t offer weight increase and small clothes so many thoughts.

When I’m in this “body” area I can also mention cellulite. I have some of them too, mainly on my thighs. They don’t bother me. They are a part of this “process” as well, I think. And as long as they don’t bother me I don’t give them to many thoughts.

But there’s a challenge I do struggling a bit with when this one shows up,- and that’s challenges with the sleep. For some reasons I don’t know, I can have a night and two or three where I’m not sleeping very well without knowing why, or the reason. And phu,- the days after some nights without a good sleep feels like I have been on a party with a few glasses of too much wine 😴🍷 . I’m so, so tired and feel so uncomfortable the day after a sleepless night 😴. It’s more then enough to just do my customer service agent job on the phone then, and not very much more then that.

I’m not use to that,- in general I do sleep very well and also fast when I’m putting down my head on ny pillow 😴.

An other thing,- I actually want to go to bed at 21.00 in the evening 😅. But Im trying my very best to be awake until around 23.00. And in general I do manage that one 😊. And I get my 7- 8 hours with beauty sleep 🥰.

Off,- and yes,- this mind and soul and thoughts and feelings things- more correctly “moody button”. That one is not very fun at all. I know I did mention that one in my other “new Spring in life post”. That one feels seriously not like any kind of Spring. More like a very stormy and cold winter day with out any kind of control ❄😳. And so, so hard to explain.

And like I mention in an earlier text,- I don’t have any midlife crisis, but I have different midlife thoughts, and some days I think more about my midlife thoughts than other days, but I can’t call my thoughts challenging. I’m just trying to find some kind of solutions, but I don’t rush the solutions. I know I need to use time on them.

And yes,- then it’s this “sexual feelings” too. I’m single so what can I say? I don’t have any lover, or friends with benefit. But it seems that “all is still in function”,- because I need to admit a friends with benefit haven’t been to bad to have 😅.

But maybe that’s just fine I’m in my bed alone at the moment? Because for some reason I get this hot flashes in the nights now and them,- and so fare haven’t had anyone during the day yet.

It’s the sleeplessness nights and the grumpy moods that’s bothering me most – then I really really don’t want anyone to bother me or Visa versa- bother them,- special not with my grumpy mood.

I’m also use reading glasses 🤓🧐. I needed to start with that some years ago. I’m using glasses when I working at my computer, when I use my mobile, and when Im reading a book. Still no need for more use for glasses yet, but of course that one can change too. It will probably change when I’m getting older,- and I still have glasses a bit “here and there” because even after a couple of years as a “part time” glass- user I’m still forget to use glasses when I need to read the menu in a restaurant, or my tiny shopping list when I go for shopping food 🧐. It’s nice to know what I’m order from the menu as well as bringing with me home from the store 😅. So I have some painting glasses in my painting – corner, a couple in my work corner, a couple in my handbag and a couple on the table in the livingroom – just in case 🤓.

So,- all in all so fare in this pre perimenopause things aren’t to bad actually 😊. But I need to admit I actually really hope it doesn’t will be or “bring” me more or other “issues” then that I’m “dealing” with at the moment. My “issues” are not to bad, but I don’t need more of them 😊.

And I can understand why ladies in the 50′, or more correctly during the menopause, can be a bit scary and grumpy. Actually trolly. Imagine “water leakage”, water in the body that should be leaking, but don’t, and marble in the stomach, some sleepless nights and hot flashes too 😳. Clothes that suddenly and without any warning are shrinking, and when I’m into this “no warning”- a mind that’s not give any kind of warning for suddenly tears or anger 😳. It’s not strange that ladies during the menopause gets a bit scary- it’s a bit scary the whole menopause sometimes.

So I think I let the whole menopause “rest” for a tiny while, and use my focus on other things, stuffs and happenings in life for a while instead 😊.

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,- and I’m not going to bother you with any menopause issues for a while (at least it’s not my plan) 😊.

So a tiny cheers for the different changes and challenges,- for the life and that life is what it is 🧡,- and for a “new Spring in life” that I’m not always understand because it doesn’t quite feels like a Spring- but I have heard it’s painful when flowers growing,- it hurts when buds bloom 😊🥀

It’s not strange that ladies during the menopause gets a bit scary- it’s a bit scary the whole menopause sometimes 😳. During this “new Spring” in life there’s also some rainy and stormy days as well 🌬. But I have heard that it hurts when buds bloom,- so I choose to believe so 🌱. So a tiny cheers for a “new Spring in life” 🍷😊.

Goodbye March ☔ Welcome to the Spring and April 🌱🤗

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

And then March was over too. I’m a bit happy for that,- it was a bit demanding month, at least in the mental area. For me more mental tired, for my daughter- mental challenges, but also tired. Both are a bit tired, but in two different ways 😊😴. Not tired of each other, but just the situation we have been through. But that’s life,- isn’t it?😊

But there’s still different things to be grateful for during March even it was a bit challenging month 😊. I’m Thankful for my friend that “borrowed” her ears to me when I needed someone to talk to during this month 🧡. And I’m grateful for the great friends my daughter have that has used their time together with her when her days was not the easiest 🧡.

I’m grateful for that our things and stuffs in Norway are “on the road” and in the direction Spain now 😊. And I’m grateful for canvas and glassbottles, oilcolours and a creative mind and two in our home 🎨😊.

I’m looking forward to “create” a colourful backyard “cafe” in my home area 🎨😊

I’m always grateful for my children, and I feel very lucky and thankful for that I have a good job 🤓😊 as well as my freelance work 📝. For me a good job is a stable job 🙏💛.

March was stormy, not just mentally, but we got a lots of rain and wind from Sahara that in it’s own way “coloured up” our days…..and all our things outside too 😅. I’m still not finish washing and cleaning that,- it wasn’t the easiest to clean up to be honest 🏖🧽.

Goodbye, goodbye March,- it was what it was. Experiences and knowledge in different ways and forms, maybe special the mental area this time? 😌

I’m looking forward to both meet and start on April. I’m looking forward to start to “prepare” my “backyard cafe” for the Spring and Summer, as well as the roof terrace 🌱 🌞. I have started to plant some plants “here and there”, and it’s so nice to see they are growing.

My daughter is going to have a terrace party in our roof terrace for her friends before she’s travelling to Bali,- and yes, if everything goes as it’s planned she will be on her way to Bali and some new and exciting adventures 20. April 🏖✈

April the month I became a mammi for the first time,- it’s my oldest son’s birthday month 🎁. I’m not sure if I’m getting older or he is just growing up very much and a bit to fast? 😅. I can’t believe that I will have a “child” in age 28 during April 😳. Wow,- imagine that 🥰.

I think April will be a bit more “relaxed” in the mind that March was 🤯. But I know there will be more then enough to do during April too, but in a very different way then during this month we now are waving Goodbye and Thank you too 🧡.

Welcome April,- the Spring is in the air 🌱🌞. And things will also change in our home,- and in general changes are good even they can be a bit “scary” because they are unknown,- like changes in general are. But this time I’m looking forward to some of this changes,- like for example live a bit my life, live a bit on my own and alone 😍. I love my children, and I love my daughter and her company too,- but it’s a time for everything in life,- like leave the nest 😉🐣.

I hope you too are looking forward to meet April and have some nice things in your life to look forward 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 🧡

See you soon 😊

Look how nice and colourful it can be in my “backyard cafe” this Spring and summer 🥰.

Goodbye, goodbye March- Thank you for the experiences 🧡. Welcome April,- I’m really looking forward to meet you 🤗.

Thank you February 🥀Welcome March 🌱🍃(2022)

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

A nice and peaceful February is over,- peaceful in our home and life at least. Busy with work,- for both Mathilde and me- but still February was a peaceful month in it’s own way 🥀.

Not to much and many different things have happen, but I like it that way😊.

I have some goals I want to try my best to reach- but for be able to reach goals it’s necessary to put in some effort like time and work- something I’m going to do my very best to continue doing the next months too. But of course also use some time to be social together with friends and family 🧡

In the beginning of February I got information about some of our things that are still in Norway, actually still is in Norway- and that made me very happy. I thought it was lots and gone. And today I got the information that it all will be picked up in a couple of days and be ready to be sent to Spain with a big car in June this year 🚚.

I know it’s “just” things- but it’s what’s left from a time in my life I really do miss. The time it was just me and my there kids on our Prairie ❤. That time is over, I know that, and I also know I can’t live in the past or get the past back- but for me to get this things to Spain will be in a way to “clean up” in the past, go through things and stuffs, accept what is gone is gone- in my way. Not all and every one elses way- but the way that’s best for me 😊. And I’m really looking forward to that 🥰. We all do handle things in life differently and that’s just the way it is 😊.

My nest is not empty either- I did start to write a bit about “the nest” and “the empty nest syndrome ” in the beginning of February- and my daughter and me have found a kind rhythm in our life and home that’s not to bad at all. We live different lives, natural enough, and it’s not always easy to find a kind of balance and rhythm in our life when we live together, and also are in very different areas in our life, work in different times from home and have different things and stuffs we want to do. But things have a habit to find a suitable “solution”, or way to create a kind of rhythm that’s best for us in the living together situation we are in 😊.

February is a short month and in general the last day in February comes a bit surprised on my, also this year. It’s like in my mind I think I have a couple of more days before a new month starts 😊. But not in February 😊.

I’m very grateful for that February have been in it’s own way peaceful without to much ups and downs- just work and normal things – the daily life 😊. I should really wish most people could feel on a nice and peaceful February- unfortunately it’s not like that- so I’m feel I’m extra lucky and have all the reason to be and feel grateful 🧡.

March will also be a lots of work and probably April too- but that’s the way it is if I want to try my very best to manage some of my goals for this year- and one of the goals is the get my children and my things and stuffs from Norway to Spain in June 🚚.

I wish March very welcome 🧡. I’m looking forward to this month even I know I need to and is going to and must do- use some hours in front of my computer. But that’s fine- I want to do what I need to do to get what I want to have 😊. That’s the way it is- to manage something I need to complete something too 😊🚚.

I hope you can look forward to a new month with hope and dreams, happiness and joy 😊.

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 😊

A rose for hope and love, harmony and peace to all the people who haven’t this in their life 🧡

I’m very grateful for this February- a month with a lots of work- but still a peaceful month in it’s own way in our life 🧡. I should wish most people had day, weeks and months like this in their life 🧡. I’m welcoming March- a month I don’t know to much about yet,- I just know I need to work a bit because I want to do what I need to do for trying my best to reach my dreams and goals 🧡

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 🤧😊.

Thank you January for an fantastic suprise 🥰. Welcome unknown February ❄

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

January is soon over and we in some few “minutes” are going to turn the calendar to February ❄.

January was more and less like I expected, at the same time really not 😊. My son in middle, Ruben, surprised me with a very unexpected and amazing visit from Norway 🥰💙.

I’m incredibly grateful for this greatest suprise 🎁🥰. The best birthday present I have got 💙🎁. And I got the possibility to celebrate my birthday together with all my three incredibly children 💙💙❤. Something that’s also was super duper birthday present 🥰. So I got two marvellous “gifts” to my birthday this year,- spend time together with Ruben as well as all my three children together 💙💙❤.

The greatest gifts- my son Ruben amazing surprise visit as well as spend time together with all my three children at the same time 💙💙❤

Except from this unexpected and fantastic suprise in January the month has mostly went to painting, organize my paintings and paintings- plans, be a mammi for Mathilde and of course working, and sent up gifts to my family in Norway 🎧📝🎨.

I have actually a bit different things to be grateful for during January 🥰.

I have a plan to try to do my best to start to “fix” my life and things in my life that needs to be fixed this year, and I have manage to start to fix some few things too in January,- even I was a bit surprised it was “fixed”.

My autonomo, this “work as self employed”, is finally finish- phu. After some years to try to finish it. Unfortunately that one did and does cost me much more then I ever did earn to be an autonomo 😔. So one thing is for sure,- I’m never going to open up any kind of autonomo in Spain again. And I’m very grateful for it’s over now.

I’m incredibly grateful for what January brought me- of course special my Ruben 💙. And of course Marius and Mathilde too 💙❤. But also for my jobs, and special this “self employed” thing that’s over now. And I’m grateful for the job I have done with my paintings so fare,- getting things a bit in “order” and with a bit more structure 🎨😊.

And I’m grateful for the jobs I have both as customer service agent on the phone as well as my freelance writing work 🎧📝. I also got information about some things/ furniture I have in Norway I thought was “a lost case”/ was throughed away- but they are still intact, and Ruben and Mathilde are going to help me remove them to the place where the rest of our over things and stuffs are now when Mathilde is in Norway. And the last, but not at least,- Ruben also got his driving licence in January 🚙💙.

So there are some things and stuffs I’m very grateful for during January 🥰. In one way it feels a bit like January spread a bit sparkling diamonds over me and my life 💎🥰.

I’m not sure what February will bring me of suprices and happenings. February is very unknown at the moment. What I do know is that Mathilde is coming back from Norway, and Irene, Marius’s girlfriend is coming back from UK, and I’m going to continue do my work as well as my freelance work, and painting too 🎨. And yes,- I’m going to start with as regular exercises and workout as possible again 🤸‍♀️. I need to admit I’m not looking forward to do the first “steps” there 😳 , I know it’s going to be so hard 😓- but I know it will do both my body and mind very well 😊.

I’m grateful for January and for the start on 2022 🧡. Im wishing February very welcome, and say so much Thank you to January 💙 . I’m looking forward to meet February even I don’t know very much about what’s going to happen during this month 🥰.

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 different great experiences during this January feels a bit like sparkling diamonds in my heart and life 🥰❤💎 I feel incredibly grateful and lucky 🥰

I have different things to be grateful during January. It feels a bit like January spread some tiny diamonds in and over my life 🥰💎. I’m not sure what I can expect from February yet, but maybe some nice surprises and maybe even some sparkling diamonds too I can wish welcome? 🥰
