To two of my neighbours 🏘😊🎨

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

Like some of you know I’m moving from the house that has been my children and my home during closely 7 years. Something that means that we also have had some good neighbours during this 7 years too 😊.

It’s mainly three neighbours I have had the best contact with, a couple and a man, and I really want to give them some thing for a good neighbour relation 🎨. And then it became some painted winebottles ( of course) 😅🎨.

I was actually not sure if I was going to manage finish the winebottles before I’m moving, but I actually did. Well, closely,- the painting in one of the bottles is still not totally dry. Hopefully it will try a bit during the next days.

But I started on two different winebottles first with different decorations, imagine and illustrations then the results is now. I had a imagination in my mind about what I wanted to paint, but when I was halfway the illustrations was not “correct”, (if I can explain it that way,) for the persons I’m going to give this bottles to. So then it was to start over again on two new bottles 😊🎨. And now they are the way I want them to be 😊.

One of the winebottle I’m going to give to one of my “old” neighbours 😊

The couple I have painted a winebottle too is a married couple. She is from UK and he is from Spain. They have a country house too, where they have different vegetables and fruits, and even hens. And I have got so much fruits, vegetables and eggs from then during this years, so I really want to give something back.

Well,- they have got something now and then like homemade cakes and cookies. Made by Norwegian recipe. And I have also knit a bit to them like hat, scarf and elf- socks 🧶.

They have two grandsons too, and I have knit hat and scarf to the boys as well 😊.

I like to give, and I like to show the people around me that I really presage them and also what they give me,- if it’s friendship or/ and fruits 😊.

This is to the married couple- 3 red roses with lights inside 🌹

I have packed this plate I use to turn the bottles around with. So it is what it is at the moment. But I hope you still will get a kind of impression how it looks like?

It’s this red roses winebottle that still have to dry a bit. Hopefully the next days will help a bit 😊.

A bit more from the red roses winebottle
And just some details 😊.

My other neighbour is living very close to me. He is Spanish, and he work as a policeman in Spain. We are actually living like “wall to wall”. I don’t think it’s possible to live closer to someone without living together in the same house.

I know his favourite colour is blue so then it became a winebottle with “the touch of blue” 😊.

The winebottle to my closest neighbour 😊

He has helped me a lot with different things in my home as well as actually been together with me to the doctor when I needed a translator. ( my family doctor speaks “andalucia” and he speaks incredibly fast too, so I have big problems with understand him 😅). And he has made olive oil to me and drove me “here and there” as well when I needed a driver now and then.

We was also close in the intim way for closely 3 years. More maybe like “friends with benefit”. But it was the 3 first years I was living here. The four last years we have just been neighbours. But….he has started flirting a bit with me again..(and yes I do flirt back a bit too- it’s actually a bit nice with the attention)… So maybe when I have moved into my new home we can be a bit “friends with benefit” again? We see what’s happen in that area- but to be honest, I don’t think I will mind to much to have him as a “friend with benefit” again. I see what’s happen. Im mot stressing “this” flirting at all. At the moment my focus and energy are work and moving 😊. ( ….but I’m still “allowed” to dream…😉).

Some details from the blue coloured winebottle 🎨.

The winebottles I started on, I still have them, and I’m going to finish them both as well. But probably not before I have moved.

And, – I have painted a bit more then this 4 winebottle during the last closely 6 weeks. Like I mention in a text for probably a month ago,- I wanted to give something back to Natasja too, just to show her how much I presage the opportunity for renting their holiday apartment. And I mention it could be in the colours of pink as well as “contain” winebottle or bottles 😉. But I needed to ask her first if “it” could be a gift she wanted. And she did…..I’m not telling very much more today, but I will tell you and show you when I’m finish 😊🎨.

Of course pink bags to Natasja 😅- but the gift is not quite finish yet, but soon 🎨

So as you can see,- inbetween packing and eating and sleeping and working during the last 6 weeks I have also been painting 🎨😊. It’s a incredibly good “timeout” for me to just paint and “calm down” a bit inbetween, better then I actually thought 😊.

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 😊

The two winebottles I started on to my neighbours- they are not finish and the creations became “wrong” for the ones I wanted to give the bottles too 😊. They are going to be gifts to someone else when they are finish 😊.

I’m actually a bit surprised over myself and how much I have manage to paint during the last 6 weeks 🎨. But obviously it gives me more effective “timeout” and energy “refill” then I thought 😊. And the “Thank you for being so good neighbours”- gifts are closely finish and ready for “delivery” 🎨😊.

The keys to some new “adventures” and experiences 🗝😊🧡

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

I have got the keys to my new place I’m going to have as a my home for awhile 🗝. And it feels actually a bit like a kind of a freedom to get the key, even I can’t explain why I feel it like that, like freedom.

And I feel I’m standing to a kind of start to some new adventures in my life too, but I have no idea what kind of adventures it is 😊. But I’m a bit excited, I need to admit that 😀. And I’m very tired- heard that one before?😅 And there will be some new experiences for me too, and I can “spoil” myself a bit as well. Spoil my self with just time to use to what ever I want and not just work in income for be able to pay for the next expenses that’s “waits around the corner ” 😊.

An adventure can at the moment closely be anything for me 😅. My days and weeks has mainly been working, sleeping, eating, packing and painting- I need to have a kind of timeout inbetween here 🎨. And wow, I’m surprised over how much I have manage to paint too 😳😀. It’s like the paint brushes has just “flying over” some different glass bottles when I’m “timing out”. I will show you when I’m a bit orginazed in my new home 😊.

An adventure for me at the moment don’t need to be any “big things”. This moving- process is just a new adventure in my life in it’s own way. And at the moment it can also be to read a book under the sun at the beach or the terrace. Or enjoy a glass of wine together with some friends. Last time I did that was in the end of March I think 😳. Or just visit some friends, or just enjoying my writing time in my blog…..or maybe even send an application for a job to the other side of the world? Or maybe get a visit and two from my neighbour from the area I’m living in at the moment?😊 Or something else I don’t know about yet.

I don’t need any big adventures in my life at the moment, just a bit different daily life and routines then I have had for more and less the last months 😊.

And here you can get a tiny tast from the terrace and the beach where I’m going to live very soon 😊

It will be a very new experience for me to move without having any of my children with me. I have never done that before. Well,- at least not after I became a mammi.

I haven’t had the best time to really “feel” about this “living without my children”- situation lately, but I need to admit that it was a bit hard and empty when my last baby duck moved out. But I didn’t get a very much time to feel about that one or this “start line in menopause” lately either before things changed in my life and my plans needed to change too😅. But maybe that’s a good thing? To not have to much time to “feel” to much on this empty feelings to live without my children anymore?

I have paid the first rent for my new home, as well as the last rent for my old home 😊. And it feels great 😊. It felt probably most great to pay the first rent for my new home. Not just because it is to my new home, but also because it was to Natasja, and not someone I don’t know 😊. And it’s so much easier to turn around the key to the door to my new home when the rent is paid. So during this weekend I’m going to move bags and boxes, because my oldest son’s girlfriend is so nice that she has borrowed her car to me so I can move a couple of things during the next days, and don’t need to use a moving car for two trips, just one trip 😊.

It’s strang how much and how many things and stuffs there are in wardrobe, cabinets and drawers 😳. It was a period I thought this house never should be empty from our things and stuffs, but now I see an “ending”,- and more and less everything are packed. It’s just some necessary things left now.

And I’m so so ready to move now, and so so tired of working and working and working 😴. But soon, in just a week or two things hopefully will changing a bit and I can use my time to a bit more exciting things then just work 😊.

This was just a tiny “drop in” from me today. I’m still here, but, unfortunately, not as much as I want to be at the moment 😊.

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 😘

The key to my new home 🧡🏡

I have got the key to my new home, and maybe the key to some new adventures too? 🗝 Most of our things are packed and I’m ready for some new adventures and experiences in my life 😊. At least I hope I’m ready …. but I can not be sure yet. I was not ready for this new turn and a bit unexpected “moving- process ” in my life when that one “showed up” a couple of months ago 😅 – but now I’m more then ready 😊.

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 🏡

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 🇧🇻😊

Maybe there’s something in it …? 🥀

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

As some of you know I’m going to move, something that came a bit unexpected and a bit faster then I had in mind.

I had something else in my mind and in a bit different “time schedule” too. In my mind I thought maybe I was going to move from this home in October or maybe during the Spring 2022. But obviously that was not the plan 😊.

And I have been thinking a bit about this “plan”,- my plan that’s not going the way and direction I had in mind,- that’s for sure 😅. But obviously there is a kind of plan in front of me, but I have just no any idea what it is, or where, or how to find it 😊.

One of my neighbours told me exactly this one day too,- that it was probably an other plan for me then I had in mind. And maybe there’s something in it? 🤔 But what? And where? And how? Because I don’t know at the moment, or maybe I do? 🍇

One thing is the pandemi- situation in the society and the world. That one has changed many people’s plans and lives, and not to the best either 😔. And of course also many of my plans are affected by the corona- situation. Maybe also this a bit sudden moving- situation? It’s just that I’m actually moving because of a increase of the rent, and not the opposite, that maybe should be a bit more natural under an pandemi?

I have many times said “when one door is closing, a new one is open up”. And I believe that it true too. It’s just a bit “scary” to open up and go into the “unknown”, the new door- opening and into something new and unknown. Special when I actually don’t know what will “meet” me behind this new door- opening in my life.

Well,- in one way I know where I’m going to live, and how the new home is 🏡. I have visit Natasja in their holiday home I’m going to rent many times 😊. And I’m going to live so close to the beach, something I really looking forward too 🏖. I actually thought I was not going to vist the beach very much this summer, but the beach is going to be my neighbour instead 🏖. So there will be more beach- visits then I had in mind too 😊. And I really like to spend time at the beach 🏖.

So literally I know what’s behind the new door I’m going to open up, because I know how the new home is looking like. But mentally I have not any ideas what I can expect,- except from that I’m incredibly grateful for this new home opportunity 🧡, and things in my life are changing, that’s for sure 😊.

It’s also the first time in my adult life I’m going to move on my own, alone 😳. I moved from my parents home when I was 19 years old, but then I became a mammi just some few months after my 21. birthday, and after that I have not moved to much and to many times, and always together with my children too.

It feels a bit strange to move without my children. I knew this day would come, but I thought I had a bit more time to “feel and think” about “this” new living on my own, and moving on my own situation too 😊. Now I feel I was a bit “thrown out” in something I’m not quite ready for 😅.

But at the same time I need to admit I feel a bit comfortable and “safe” with my new living- situation because I’m going to rent from someone I know very well. And in a way, like I mention, I “know” the home I’m moving into 🏡. But still it feels a bit strange too,- like “someone” else just changed my plans without “consulting” me first if it was okay for this new changes 😅. Sounds maybe strange, but that’s the way I feel at the moment 😊. I don’t know if you understand what I mean?

At the moment I feel, I actually know I don’t have any other choices then to open the new unknown door in my life. And the first step into this “unknown” is to move and start to live in a new home for a while 🏡. But not before in the middle of June, its about more or less a month to I’m going to move.

And,- yes,- I do believe there’s probably a “reason” or “plan” for why this happen in my life now, I just don’t know what it is 😊. I believe there’s maybe something in “it”, an other “plan” that I have and had in my mind, and that’s a new and unknown door is open up in my life. But what? Well,- it’s just to live, do the best of it and see “what’s happen” 🧡.

Do you feel like this sometimes? 🥀 Like “someone” changing your plans in your life without “consulting” you first? And that it feels a bit scary to open up the new door in your life because you don’t know what’s behind it? What can or will happen when you open the new door ? 🌸

I’m actually looking forward to this new unknown door I have in front of me, at the same time I hope it’s “allowed” to “feel” a bit around this soon new living- situation in my life 😊. The unexpected, the new door, the changes in my plans without “consulting” me first 😊.

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 🧡 Take good care 🌹.

See you soon 😊

A new door is “slowly” open up in my life,- and I don’t know what I can or will meet behind it 😊 That is both a bit scary and exciting at the same time 😊

My neighbour told my that maybe it was “the plan” that I was going to move soon and a bit unexpected, even it was not my plan 🏡. I know when one door is closing in life, a new one is open up. But it is both a bit scary and exciting at the same time to open up the door to the unknown 😊.
