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 🧡

Welcome April with the Spring 🥀🐣 Thank you March for the different experiences 😊🐦

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

April is knocking on the door and has already started. I like it when we turn to April and the Spring. It’s getting lighter, warmer and more colours in the nature. Flowers are growing up and the trees get soft, greens leafs 🍃.

I can say Thank you so much March 🥀. Not one of my favourite months, but still I need to say it became a pretty good month 😊.

I went to Madrid on my own, a trip I didn’t looked very much forward too, but it became a very good trip 🚂. And my daughter moved out and to her own apartment, and enjoying her young adult life 🏠. My son in the middle got a permanent working contract in Norway, and I’m incredibly happy for him 🥰. And my oldest son was on a visit too, an did also helped me out with a couple of things in my home 🏡.

The plan was that I was going to change my working situations too as a costumer service agent in March. Lucky for me this plans changed back again so I can continue working for the same department as well as from my home some more months , something I’m both relieved over as well as thankful for 🎧💻. But,- wow,- there has been some pretty busy days on the phone line the last days, actually last two weeks 🎧.

I have used some really good quality time together with some of my friends 🥰, as well as time to paint, knit and writing in my blog 🎨🧶. And a bit time to sleeping too, actually a lot 😴.

The freelance work situation is a bit better then it has been so fare during this year. But my economy is still a bit pressed, but for some reasons I’m not so stressed as I in general became when there’s a bit to much press on my money. I don’t know why I’m not stressed, but it feels so good to not be stressed. One reason why I don’t feel on this stress that’s I normally get under “economic situations” like this, can be because I’m only taking care of myself now, and then it’s a bit easier to deal with not to much money when it’s just me 😊.

I have had some very fast, but nice walking trips to the work office, and I also had some “company” in my patio even that one “disappear a bit to fast 😔.

So Thank you so much, March,- it was actually very nice to meet you after all 🍂🌷.

And I wish you very Welcome April with the soft Spring in the air 🍃🥀. I’m not sure what this month will bring me,- but I know the month starts with some Easter Holiday, and that feels very good. It’s going to be great with some day “off” as customer service agent 🎧.

I know my oldest son is going to drop by one of the days, as well as my daughter. It will be great to see them both again as always 🥰.

My plan for April is work as much as I can with the freelance work. That’s the first priority. Then it’s painting, knitting, spent time together with my friends- and all this have the same priority for me, even its different things- they still gives me a lots of joy, happiness and positive energies 💚.

And yes,- make good plans, both over the days, weeks and hopefully months too 😊. And try to start with as regular workout and exercises routines as possible- that one will be hard, I just know it, feel it in all of my body 😅. But it’s necessary too, for both my body and my mind 😊.

I can’t actually imagine that there will be to many changes and challenges in front of me now,- but as we all know, – life is, and life is filled up with different kinds of suprices 🙏. So I can’t be sure on anything actually, but I can hope and wish for some “easy going” days, weeks, months now 🧡🙏.

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 😊

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 😊.

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 a tiny bad habit to be “connected” to the standing still wheels too 😊. But that’s life, isn’t it- to meet up on different challenges now and then? 😊

Farewell short February 🐦,- and Welcome you unknown March🥀 🧡

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

February is already over and finish, and we have turned the calendar into March. February month went very fast 😳. And the strangest thing is that I feel not to much didn’t even happen in February 😊. At the same time small things happen mostly every day if we take a tiny look at each and every day. I said small things, the things that maybe in it’s own way actually “make and create the day, and the life” 😊. But it’s not always we are to good to look after this daily small things in our life. I’m not very good to look after the small things in a day.

But even February went fast we did manage to do “something” in the month. If there has been changes, challenges, knowledge and wisdom? Probably.

I have knit a lot, both to people and a couple of dogs 🧶🐕. And I have been painting a lot too. Me and my daughter has spent a bit time togethe. Because we do still live together as well as because of the different restrictions we needed to live by. So our social life has been what it has been. Not to many people, mostly judg me and my daughter, and now and then a couple of friends 😊.

Some restrictions are loosens up a bit now. Something means we can “live” a bit more outside our home as well as cross the city borders again.

Me and my daughter got a new “hobby”- in the beginning of February- “food- haunting”. We both like this so much, so we are probably going to continue buy food during the app “ToGoodToGo”. Maybe not together anymore, because my daughter is going to move out in a couple of weeks. But we both see the value of buying food during “ToGoodToGo” as well as we get a nice walk during the day when we are on “food- haunting” 😊.

We got some second hand clothes In February. Really nice and fun, and something we both are very grateful for 🧦👗. A new wardrobe isin general very welcome 😊.

I also got an job- offer in Ireland, but I chose to stay in Spain for a while more. It’s not the best time to move during an pandemi.

February was a kind of a silent month, nice and short. But I’m not sure if I’m ready to meet March yet. But I haven’t any choice 😊. I’m not sure what March will give or bring, but at the same time I know it will be a very busy month.

So what I will say is “Thank you February for being a bit silent and quiet month 🥀”. I felt I needed it 🥀. And I probably needed it for getting a bit ready to meet March too 💛.

The first day this month has been busy, and I know the next days will be too. Actually the nexts weeks.

I need to travel to Madrid this month and my daughter is moving out this month. My oldest son is going to have a surgery again, and I have different things I both need to reorganize as well as organize, both In my life as well as i my home. I’m also maybe going to change my work situation and start working in a new project too. But here is also can come some changes, so I see what’s happen 😊.

I don’t know how the different things will be during March, but it will probably be fine when all comes to all 😊. And there will probably “show up” some unexpected things and happenings too, hopefully some good ones 🧡.

I didn’t felt to ready to “leave” February, and I don’t feel to ready to start on March either 😊. But it is what it is. The best is probably to try my very best to embrace what comes up with a positive focus and attitude 🧡.

So fare so good, it has been a good day today, busy, but good 😊. Hopefully a tiny “draw” how the rest of the month can be 💚.

I hope you had a nice start on this new month too, and that you are looking forward to the unexpected March eith a positive attitude and focus 💛. Hopefully the days, weeks and month can and will bring something really nice into your life in some or another way 💛.

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 😊

Me,- very updated- actually taken today 😊

February is over, and we have already started on March 🥀. I will Thank February for being a bit relaxed- I needed that 💛,- and maybe February also in it’s own way probably prepared me a bit for a busy March 😊. I also know there will be some unexpected things and happenings to look forward as well not just busy days, but I just don’t know what it is yet 💚.
