The Norwegian Constitution Day 🇧🇻

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

Today it’s The Norwegian Constitution Day 🇧🇻. A day people in Norway, and many norwegians all over the world in general are celebrating with parades and speaks, good food and different social activities and events 🥀. We dress up, eat hotdogs and ice cream, and spend time together with family and friends 👨‍👩‍👧‍👧

But not this year, but still a bit more then last year 😊.

I’m working today so I’m not going to celebrate very much, but I know some of my Norwegian friends in Spain are going to celebrate a bit today 🎉. And I know it will be a bit more celebration this year in Norway then last year too 🎉.

I’m not sure if our Norwegian Traditions when it comes to the Norwegian Constitution Day will change, or if it’s just a bit “put on hold” until the pandemi is a bit less like a pandemi. But I think some traditions are changing during an pandemi both in Norway, Spain and other countries around in the world.

It’s a bit sad, but at the same time traditions are changing with or without any pandemi too all over the world, just in a slower tempo, so we actually don’t recognize the changes in the same way as when they are changing a bit fast. Like for example during the last year.

For me this day was more like a incredibly busy day where we “runned” from one place to another. Three kids should be ready early in the morning in nice clothes for reaching the parade, and I needed to be ready to in my bunad- the Norwegian National dress. And I needed to remember “this and that” too, and a couple of cakes to bring with me as well. And it was on top of that always difficult to find a good parking place too, close to the celebration place.

And then it was to bring some cakes “here”, put some kids in the parade “there” and find a nice spot for my self so I could watch my kids in the parade 😊.

I know it’s a bit sad to say it, because The Norwegian Constitution Day is a very important day for us norwegians, but I didn’t like this day very much when I was living in Norway. All the stress this day brought, and all the people around me all the time.

I don’t mind the celebration of the Norwegian Constitution day, but it was not a kind of celebration that suited me as person. I like a bit less people around me, and a bit less stress too 😊.

I’m not a person who do like me very much in environment where it’s to much people around me. But this day it was in general people “every where”. Sometimes I felt someone had “shaked” all the house all over the landscape so all the people needed to run out and celebrate this day. It was people everywhere 😊.

It’s nothing wrong with that, and it’s nothing wrong with me. This is just my experience and the way I do remember the celebration of the Norwegian Constitution Day in Norway,- short summary. Hopefully I will get some new and different experiences and memories about this day one day 😊. But of course it was nice to meet people an chat up a bit, it was just so many people everywhere 😅. I don’t like that, and I didn’t like the stress either 😊. ( …yes, I know I have mention it before 🤭).

For some I have maybe been to honest today about my memories and experiences when it comes to the Norwegian Constitution Day, – but it is what it is. We all have different memories and experiences 😊🇧🇻. I have nothing against the Norwegian Constitution Day 😊,- it was just not a kind of celebration I really enjoyed, – that’s it 😊 .

I really hope all the Norwegian all over the world will enjoy this day, celebrate it the way that’s best and most correct for you, special during an pandemi, and hopefully together with some family and friends, hotdogs and ice cream 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 😊

I have packed my Norwegian Flag- so I needed to improvise a bit with the photo today 🇧🇻😊

I choose to wait a bit to greet the Irish leprechaun 🧚‍♂️😊

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

Most countries have folk tales and legends, and also their own trolls, elves and various mysterious creatures of various kinds. Also Ireland 🧚‍♂️.

In Ireland they have this tiny little man, he is actually not more then around 75 cm high and looks like a man at the same time a bit like troll. He is called a leprechaun, and I have actually been writing some small articles about him now and then when a client has requested it. So in many ways I have “encountered” a leprechaun and two in my own texts and through research.

A leprechaun is neither evil nor good, but a little prankster who can just as easily trick you a little as to help you.

He comes from a mysterious land, perhaps a land under the sea, and often his job is a shoemaker.  It is said that he is quite rich, and has a pot full of gold coins at the end of the rainbow.  But it is not so easy to meet a leprechaun, because he likes it best at dawn or at dusk.  A leprechaun is nice, welcoming and hospitable, it is said.  And if you are lucky enough to meet him then he is required to tell you where the gold is, and maybe he will give you a wallet of money that never runs out.

I do like this little mystery man, at least what I do know about him during textes and research. And in my mind I think that the people in Ireland are maybe a bit like an leprechaun? Nice, welcoming and hospitable, and also a good helper with a touch of humor? At kesdt the people I actually have met from Ireland are like this 😊.

Last week I got a job offer from Ireland/ Cork, with the possibility for maybe meeting a leprechaun- if I choose to take the job and move to Ireland. Not because the job is about leprechaun, but because the job is in Ireland 😅. And the salary was quite okay too, for me it’s seems like a tiny little pot of gold coins. Well,- not quite, but a salary a bit better and more then I have at the moment, that’s for sure.

The job offer sounds, to be honest, incredibly interesting. It’s about healthcare and medicine, but I need to move to Ireland. And I’m not sure how ready I’m for moving to another country during an pandemi.

It’s feels actually challenges enough to live in Spain during an pandemi, so how will it be to move to another country where I don’t know anyone, and also need to work in a home office because of the pandemi? And where there’s even higher red corona- numbers then here in Spain?

I don’t think my daughter is quite ready to let me move to fare away from her yet either. But little by little and step by step she will soon live on her own again, and the situation will be different.

And I have also something else I feel I need to find out a tiny bit about before I maybe choose to leave Spain one day,- and that is actually something with a man. It’s difficult to explain, because I’m not quite sure what I feel, think or believe anymore when it comes to relationship, and this boyfriend/ girlfriend- thing. I’m actually not sure if I want to be in, or have any relationship again. Or even believe in relationship anymore. I’m not sure if it’s worth it,- but still I’m a bit curious about this man for reasons I can’t explain at the moment.

Not the best reason for not take this job offe in Ireland, but yes, I need to admit I actually want to try to find out why I have this man on my mind now and then. (…okay, maybe he is a bit more on my mind then now and then 😊).

TBut still the main reason why I didn’t took this job offer in Ireland this time is the pandemi and all the different challenges and restrictions that are following the pandemi and are around this situation, and also my children, my daughter. I can’t move away from her yet.

At the same time I need to admit that if things had been different, if there hasn’t been any pandemi and I knew my daughter was ready, I have probably said yes to this job offer and moved to Ireland. I don’t think the choice has been very difficult. Because the job sounds very interesting, and the salary was not to bad either, and a fare as I know, Ireland, under normal circumstances, can be very interesting to live in and explore 😊.

Free shiping over 69$

I should really wish I could do the job from Spain,- but unfortunately I can’t. And that’s the way it is at the moment. That’s a part of the life, that’s life.

Anyway,- I’m very happy and grateful for get this job offer, even I didn’t say yes,- and maybe one day in the future, when the pandemi is over and things are a bit more “calm down”,- who knows,- maybe I move to Ireland and meet the leprechaun? And also maybe do some exacting and interesting work as well😊 ? With a pot of gold coins as my salary? I don’t know, but it is nothing wrong to have some dreams 😊.

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 🧡

I didn’t have any “real” leprechaun in my home,- this are the closest ones I will come a leprechaun for awhile and his tiny pot of gold coins in the end of the rainbow at the moment 🧚‍♂️😊

It’s not the easiest time for some moving to a new and other country now at days, not even when a interesting job offer drops up during an pandemi 📝,- and maybe even the possibility for meeting a nice and polite leprechaun 🧚‍♂️. So I choose to wait a bit, and continue my life in Spain for a while 😊.
