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 🏡

It takes a bit time to find the balance again 😊🥀

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

I have been living with some “moving in and out” from my home since the beginning of October 2019. And during this time I have found out it takes a bit time to find my balance in the new “living together” and “living alone” situations that has changed more and less every second or third month 😊.

Things goes okay, of course, but I need to try to find a kind of rhythm, routines and balance together with the people I’m living together with as well as my own rhythm, routines and balance when they has moved out again 😊.

The first month it’s a bit like trying out what’s most functional for the people who are living in my home as well as me. And then slowly during the second month it’s seems and feels like we get a kind of balance together, and things in the daily life goes a bit “smoother” and we in a way manage to create a kind of routine together as well as separate.

And then we turn into the third month and a new “round” of trying to find the balance starting again because someone has moved out, and someone is maybe soon moving in again 😊.

It’s almost a bit like I have to reset myself a little bit every time – whether it’s moving in or moving out.  If you understand what I mean?

In a living together situation it’s a bit important to find a balance more and less where everyone is a bit comfortable with. But it is not easy, because we are all different, we have different habits (good and not to good), and we see things in the daily life differently too.

I need to admit I think this “moving in and out” from my home have got smoother then I first had in mind. Maybe because in general it has been my children and their friends that have moved their suitcases in and out, so it’s people I actually know very well 😊.

Now I’m on my own again and have actually been living alone for around a month. I haven’t got or “found” the balance that’s feels best for me yet, but I’m getting closer 😊.

I need to admit I have felt a bit restless and inactive lately, and it has been a little difficult to create new good routines in my life. I’m not sure why I feel and have felt a bit restless, but probably because the life- and living situation has changed again, and I’m going “in and out” from my routines and balance in my life.

And of course this “getting older” process also is influential cause. But I have not quite managed to find my own peace in my everyday life yet.  And I like to have calm, balance, rhythm and routines in my daily life. And I’m not quite there yet…. Maybe I’m a bit a little impatient with myself? I know things takes a bit time sometimes 😊.

I have learned during this around 18 months with a changing life- situation every second and third month that it takes me around 8 to 10 weeks before I’m “there” I want to be and with the balance in my life I feel comfortable with. It doesn’t matter if it’s a living together situation or living on my own,- I’m actually comfortable and have learned to live with the new life situation after around 8- 10 weeks. So you can say I have been a bit “in and out” myself during this 18 months with a changing life- situation, and trying to find my new balance every second or third month 😅. But okay,- that’s life- and I think this time my living alone situation will last a bit longer then 2 or 3 months so I have the chance to find a very good balance in my life too 😊.

I’m not sure if anyone else has it this way? I don’t think the young adult that has been living in my home has felt this “balance” thing in the daily life at the same way as me. And I also think, well at least it looked like that for me, that this young adults found their balance in the daily life very fast, also when they moved into my home 😊. Of course I’m very happy for that, because then at least they felt like “home” and hopefully a bit relaxed with the living together situation 😊.

But I think as older we get a bit more difficult it is for us to “adopt” us into a new life situation, it’s more difficult because we are older, and it takes a bit longer time to feel comfortable and “balanced” in the new life situation. It’s not sure I’m correct. This is just my thoughts and feelings, and also my experiences during the last 18 months.

I’m doing my things, – my job, my freelance work, I knit and I paint too, and I meet my friends now and then as well. So I’m trying my very best to create a balance, my balance in my life. But I still have this restlessness inside me, and Im actually still very inactive in my life even it maybe doesn’t look like that from “the outside”,- and there’s still a couple of more routines I need to try to get a bit better “control” over in my daily life 😊. I’m actually in general a bit more effective then I have been the last month. Hopefully I will be “there” I want to be with my rhythms and routines in my daily life in the middle of May 😅.

Is it just me that is like this? Have this habit and need for having a kind of balance in my daily life, and a kind of rhythm and routines too? And is it just me that actually use over 2 months to “get” the balance in my life I feel comfortable with after some changes in the daily life balance? I hope not 😊. (Anyway I’m who I’m- like to have a kind of balance “here and there ” in my life 😊).

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 feel I need to resett my self a bit after some months with “moving in and out” from my home 😊.

Is it just me that like to have a kind of balance in the daily life? I feel I need to resett my self a bit every time someone is moving in or out from my home, because I like to have a kind of balance in my daily life,- both when I’m sharing my home as well as living on my own 😊.

JustLailaS is now JustLailaS 😊🥀

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

Like I mention in a post for around a month ago I’m changing my domain name to my blog 😊. It’s no more mybumpyshininglife.com only Justlailas.com from now 😊.

And it feels very correct for me to do this change now at days, and I’m also comfortable with using my own name at my blog domain now 😊.

It has been a kind of process for me from mybumpyshininglife to JustLailaS. My focus on my domain name at that time was that my life felt a bit bumpy but also very shiny 🌞. But at that time, when I chose the name for my blog and domain name, my focus was also very much about “the bump” that dropped me off in Spain with a couple of kids in my suitcase. I’m not there anymore, – and that feels incredibly great 🥰.

I in a way did write me “out of it”, and that’s a very good feeling 😊.

It feels also as a good time to change name on my blog and domain name now when I’m standing on one “stop line” in my life as well as a new “start line” in my life too 😊. And from now it is “just me” too, but of course my blog will still contain my children too, as well as other friends and family that are important for me in my life 🧡.

It will still contain my art and what’s happen in my life- small and big things, stuffs and happenings. And it will still contain some of my thoughts about and around different subjects in life as well as dreams too 😊. And I’m still going to try to take and use my own photos as well to my texts.

It’s actually not many different changes in my blog, it’s more the symbolic name change that is the biggest changes in my blog. And the name change is more symbolic for me then my readers 😊.

And in a couple of weeks I’m also going to get an email connected to my blog,- something I’m actually looking forward to 😊. It’s not sure I will get any emails, but it feels nice to just have the possibility for my readers to contact me on an email if they want to 😊.

And hopefully there will be some new brands or banners in my blog too. One thing at the time,- and the first step was to change my domain name and name at my blog 😊.

I’m looking forward to continue writing in my blog, and I hope you also are looking forward to read my blog and posts now and then 😊.

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 😊

Laila S. from April 2021 😊

I have changed my domain name at my blog,- and it feels as the correct time in my life to do this change 😊. It’s also a tiny bit symbolic change of the name since I’m on my way out from inexera in my life and on my way into a new era in my life 🥰.

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 😊

Flowers from March month 🥀

Thank you so much, March 🥀- not one of my favourite months became not to bad at all 💚. I wish April very welcome together with the soft Spring air 🍃. I don’t know what the days and weeks will bring, but hopefully not to many changes and challenges now 🙏🧡.

A nice glass of wine, good memories and great conversations 🍷😊

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

I’m trying to enjoy my life in between my work and work,- and did spent a really nice afternoon together with a good Norwegian friend of my, over a tasty glass of white wine 🥂.

A tasty glass of white wine together with a friend 😊

It has been a while since we have been meeting up, but that’s because of something called coronavirus, restrictions and actually also this “age- process”. This “age- process”, also called menopause, does now and then, something with the “need” of socialisation- but we can drop by that subject an other time 😊.

We both have been single mams for our children for many years. She have two kids- a girl and a boy, and they are at the same ages as my two youngest.

Our children went to the same school, and also spent some of their time off from school together. Her son and my daughter was actually young sweethearts together too 🥰. I know her children and she knows all my 3 children, so it feels a bit familiar too. And our daughters are working together now at the same company as well 😊.

So we have a bit to talk about, both good memories and in so many ways the same experiences too, and of course the life in general…..and well, we did drop by the menopause too 😅. Maybe natural enough since we are both “tumbling” around in this strange and new “age- process”. I’m in the early beginning and she is slowly reaching a kind the “end” of menopause. I think she is around 10 years older then me,- and I’m grateful for having the possibility to ask her different questions about this “getting older process” 😊. But I’m more grateful for just spending time together with her, have a glass of wine and nice conversations.

It was a really nice afternoon over a glass of white wine together with a good friend, good conversations and some good memories too 😊.

I did walk down to the centre and I had a nice walk home as well. I actually did what my kids did teach me when we was for a walk, trip or travel. They did teach my to enjoy the moment, take a look around and just create something out of the walk, trip or travel- like a tiny small adventure in the moment, – if you understand what I mean? 😊.

You know how kids can ask different questions, – like what, when, where, why and so on. It can actually be a bit irritating to be honest 😅,- but when I started to just “enjoy” my kids curiosity, their joy over small “experiences” on the trip, and just looking around me, the trip can contain many small, nice and on its own way exciting details.  Details my kids taught me to look at and enjoy with their various questions and curiosity 😊.

And I had a walk like that on my way back home this afternoon after a glass of wine together with my friend 😊. I actually made a choice to try to have a walk like this on my way home, a walk like a tiny, tiny adventure 😊.

I enjoyed the flowers, and I enjoyed the view over the tivoli and the colours over the sunset. I meet actually a a peacock too on my way home, and I did drop by the food store and bought me a pizza ….with pineapple 🍍. Because suddenly it dropped my mind that I can eat my pizza with pineapple now when I’m living on my own and don’t need to share the pizza together with my daughter ( who not like pineapple on the pizza) 😊.

So yes,- I had a really exciting and nice afternoon,- met up with a good friend, had some good conversations, and in my own way I actually was on a tiny “exploring walk” on my way back home 😊.

Like I have mention before, it’s not the “big things” that’s actually “create” the day, or even the good memories,- it can just be the tasty glass of wine together with a friend, or the nice flowers in the road, or be able to enjoy pineapple on the pizza 🍕

It’s just to try to take a look around, but I also know it’s not always easy to “just” take this look around, see or realise the or those good moments in the day. I don’t think that myself either, but I’m trying my best, because it gives me a bit more good and positive feelings 🧡.

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 what I manage to “explore” and enjoy on my 20 minutes walk home 😊. I’m enjoying my life as best as I can 🧡

I’m enjoying my life as best as I can 😊. I’m enjoying the flowers in the road as well as the tasty glass of wine together with my friend 🥀. It’s not always easy to see the tiny small details that actually can create the day 😊. And some of this “possibility” to enjoy the details in a day did my kids teach me with all their curious questions when they was children,- and now I’m trying to the the same in my own way 🦋😊.
