A nice visit surprise 😊🛩🏖

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

I’m actually getting a holiday guest this week,- something that is a very nice surprise 😊. Well,- it’s not a surprise since I know my friend is coming, but it is only 3 weeks since she asked me if I had time for a holiday visit this week. And of course I have,- but I need to do my work in between 🎧.

I’m really looking forward to see my friend from Norway again, it’s some years ago we have met. And I’m really looking forward to show her my “new” home so close to the beach and the sunrise 🌞

It’s actually around 2, 5 years since I have had any holiday guests,- except from my Ruben this January 🥰. But he is my child, my son, not a holiday guest,- so it’s a other kind of vist. He have still a kind of life here after living here for some years. He have friends he meets up with and doing different things together with when he is in Spain 😊.

This visit is a nice surprise also because I didn’t think anyone from Norway was going to visit me this year. I have asked some few family and friends from Norway if they wanted to visit me in Spain this year,- but in general I have got the answer “Nja, maybe next year, it’s still corona and also a war going on”.

I understand that,- and a other thing,- to be honest, I don’t think I can effort to host a lots of guests anyway. I don’t have the economy to have many guests to serve several meals per day rather.  It also costs some money to host guests. And I can’t have a free “holiday in” even I’m living in Spain.

I know I could probably ask more friends and family from Norway to visit me, but in a way I “gave up” when I got this answer, and also when I thought a bit about how much the economic cost can be for me to have several guests during the summertime and Autumn. I actually can’t effort it.

The prices are higher in Spain too, both the food, drinks, water, gas, electricity, but my salary is not higher. No changes on that one. Of course it feels a bit sad,- but it is what it is,- and it’s better to accept the fact and situation,- and do the best of it,- like really enjoying the visit I having (and can effort) 🥰.

I understand why people still are considering to travel or not. It has been some special years with the corona- situation, and now the war in Ukraine. So yes,- it was a very nice surprise that my friend asked me if she could visit me for some days 😊. I didn’t see that coming,- and I’m going to appreciate and take care of every moment 😊. Special because I think this will be more and less the only holiday guest that will drop by to me this year 🏖. And this guest doesn’t use me and my home as a “free holiday in” in Spain either,- she helps out. Something I’m really grateful for 🧡.

My friend did visit me several times a year before the corona- situation. She visited me so often that she have a bit clothes and private things here. She was actually the last guest before corona did “dropped by”. She visited me in October 2019 for a week, and now she also will be the first one that visit me after the corona- situation 😊.

We have been friends for many, many years. Actually since she was 6 years old and I was 7 years old. That’s a bit of some years 😊.

But I don’t remember what I do when I have holiday guests anymore 😅. It’s “just” 2,5 years since I had guests, but still….it’s feels like in an other “lifetime” after the corona- situation. And I have also moved into a new home. Lucky for me it’s a friend I know very well so I don’t need to stress to much with to much “entertainment”. I think beach and ocean, barbecue at my terrace and maybe a visit or two “here and there” will be fine 🏖.

But I need to admit I have thought a bit about that,- what do I do together with holiday guests? It’s good I can “exercise” a bit with a good friend now during the nexts days, because I’m actually not sure anymore what I do when I have holiday guests 😊. I’m a bit “out of training” when it comes to host holiday guests 😅.

And what do I fill the fridge up with? What kind of food? What to drink? I myself live in a way very “simple” when it comes to food and drinks. In general I eat what’s in the fridge 😊. And buy just what I need. It’s not any kind of “gourmet” in my fridge, to be honest 😅. A couple of years ago I actually had a bit control and a kind of “overview” over that one too 😊. But okay,- it is what it is,- and I’m going to do my best so she will feel very welcome, and hopefully will visit me again 🌹.

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 😊

Things are ready for my guest,- clean bed, towels and even some books she can read if she want 😊(ear- plugs?- it’s a bit more noisy here then where I lived before. I sleep well, but I don’t know if my friend will sleep well- so just in case,- ear- plugs to her 😊)

It’s some years since I had holiday guests in my home now,- actually closely 2, 5 year 🏖. It’s mainly because of the corona- situation. But now my first holiday guest is “on the way”,- something I really looking forward to 😊🛩.

The beach is getting ready for some holiday guests 🏖🐣

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

The firs week in March I had nice morning walks at the beach every morning before my work 🚶‍♀️🏖. A really good start on the day. But then the rain came, and it has more and less raining for closely 3 weeks ☔. The last week the sun has showed up, and it’s more and more Spring in the air, but the wind and the rain has still dropped by a bit now and then.

Today I have a bit Easier Holiday, and actually a kind of Saturday feeling, even its Thursday 😊 , and I started the day with a relaxing and nice walk on the beach this morning 🏖. No wind, no rain. Just so peaceful and no people either. Just me, the beach, the sunrise, the ocean and some beach umbrellas that was getting ready for the holiday guests 🏖.

The beach, the beach umbrellas and the sunrise 🌞

It was a great start on the Easter to have this relaxing walk, feel the silent and just be so totally alone on the beach 😊. It’s not for very long, because the Easter holiday guests are just around the corner to the beach 😊.

I’m not going to have any holiday guests this Easter. It’s actually some years since there was holiday guests during the Easter in my home, actually holiday guests in general, not just in the Easter,- but that’s because of this pandemi. Last Easter I’m not even sure if I remember 😅. Is it like that for you? Like 2020 and 2021 is a bit foggy in the memories? The Easter 2020 we was living with curfew here in Spain so it was a bit difficult to have any guests. But in one way I had two guests that Easter 2020,- because my oldest son and his friend, Andreas, was “stuck” together with me in my home under the curfew that year 😅.

I’m not going to have any Easter holiday guests this year, but my daughter have a guest for a couple of days 🐣. I’m actually not sure if there will come any holiday guests to my home this year at all. One thing is the pandemi, but this war in Ukraine are also something that keeps people think twice before they choose to travel to fare now at days. It’s unfortunately not easy to make to many or to much plans now at days because of both the war and the pandemi.

At the moment I’m very fine with not hosting holiday guests. But I think that’s because my daughter still lives here, and I feel or have a kind of need to be “just me” for a while before I can be a pleasant and caring hostess for friends and family from Norway. And when I first have some guests after so long time, actually years, without any holiday guests during the last years, I really want to be a good and caring hostess, and take good care of my guests 😊. Have the energy and time to and for them as well😊.

Ruben, my middle son, dropped by as a fantastic suprise and for a lovely visit in January this year, so there has been one guest. But he is my son, so it’s different. I don’t “count” him as a holiday guest 😊💙.

I haven’t ask many of my friends or family to visit me either yet,- because I know myself so good that I need a tiny little time to be a bit alone, be just me, and not a hostess after Mathilde has travelled. But of course I hope there will be some family and friends “souls” that’s dropping by my home during this year 🥰. But maybe not before after June? Then, after June, maybe it’s just not the beach that gets ready for holiday guests, but also me?😊 I don’t know,- wee see what’s happen 😊.

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 😊

Early this morning it was just me, the sunrise, and the sun umbrellas at the beach- but that’s not for very long 😊

I had a great start on the Easter this year with a nice walk at the beach early this morning. Nice and relaxing- it was just me, the beach, the sunrise and the ocean, and some sun umbrellas too ☂️. The beach was getting ready for some Easter guests 🐣🏖.

Happy Easter to you all 🐣😊🌞

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

The Easter is here, the Spring is in the air,- and I wish you all some Great Easter Days 🐣🌞.

I have been looking forward to some days off for a while now,- and my plans for thise Easter Days is not very much. Relax, enjoy that the Spring is in the air, maybe paint a bit, and spend time together with my daughter,- and also Marius, my oldest and his girlfriend that’s coming back from Paraguay this week 🌞. And maybe I’m going to socials a bit together with some friends too.

Today it’s just one week until my daughter will be on the plane to Bali, and ready for some new adventures in her life, and a lots of new knowledge too 😊. So I want to spend as much time as I can together with her before she’s travelling. I’m actually not sure when I will see her again. But I also know she is going to spend a bit time together with some of her friends before she’s leaving as well as she need do work a bit and also start packing and organize the last things and paper work for her long and exacting travel in life 🏖😊. So she have a bit to do the last days before she’s leaving.

I’m going to take the days a bit as they are coming this Easter, but be available for Mathilde when or if she needs me 😊. I have two days off from my job, and then I need to be a bit like a “working bie” on Saturday on the phone 🎧🐝. Hopefully most of the costumers are on Easter Holiday so there will be a bit silent on the phone 🤞😊. And then I have two more days off from my work before a the “normal” working days are “up and running again” 😊🎧. I’m really looking forward to some days off even there’s a day with work inbetween 😊.

I hope you have some fantastic Easter Days to look forward to 🥰.

I wish you a great Easter Holiday 🐣🧡. And I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are as well 🧡. Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog today 🧡

See you soon 😊

I’m so ready to enjoying some Easter Days now 😊🐣

I wish you all a Great Easter 😊🐣. I hope you all have some relaxing and fantastic days to look forward too 🧡. I’m just looking forward to some relaxing Spring days, as well as using time together with two of my children. And maybe be a bit extra available for Mathilde- because it’s just one week until she is getting on a big and exciting travel in her life 🏖🧡. Happy Easter to you all 🧡🐣.

A little baby knit for a little princess 🧶😊

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

In between work and job and a couple of unexpected other things I have manage to knit a bit clothes to a sweet little baby princess.

A very good friend of my got a baby girl some months ago, more exactly in the beginning of July this year. So this little baby girl starting to get older and a bit bigger too, and it’s also starting to be colder here in Spain. So hopefully some knitted clothes will keep her a bit warm during the wintertime? ….if they fits…😳😊

I’m not sure if the clothes actually will fit this “sweety pie” because she is growing up so fast and she is already soon closely 5 months, and I have been knitting in size 3- 6 months 🧶. Maybe it will be baby- doll clothes instead ?😊

Some knitted baby clothes for the wintertime to a sweet little baby girl 🥰.

And to be honest,- I have been a bit slowly with my knitting too because there has been a couple of other things then just work I needed to “deal” with to during the last months. It’s an other story and I’m going to tell you what has “kept” my time and days busy- when the time is right to tell.

A jacket, scarf, two hats in different sizes and trousers 🧣

I don’t think one of the hat will fit, not either the trousers, but probably the scarf and maybe the other hat and the jacket.

A yellow dress- maybe this will fit? 👗

My friend and her baby girl are in Norway at the moment and visiting their family and friends so it’s a bit difficult to try the clothes on her daughter too 😊.

She knows her daughter will get this clothes when they are back home in Spain. And she also know that maybe they can be to small.

I have started on something new to the baby princess – in size 6- 9 months…..just in case 😊

I do manage to do a couple of other things in between work, job and unexpected happenings in life- like knit and paint too. I need to – just to relax a bit in my mind, a tiny little timeout from “all and everything”.

A “cozy suit” for coldwinter days – maybe this will it-but I’m not sure.

The photos are maybe not the best, but I can’t manage “it all ” 😅.

And when it comes to the knit recipe- I’m using Norwegian recipes created mainly to use different kinds of Norwegian yarn. And I knitting with Spanish yarn at the moment. You should think it shouldn’t be any difference, but it actually are. Even when I’m trying my best to follow the knit recipe there’s some different changes when it comes to the size in the recipe I’m using and how the product is when it’s finish. And of course also the size of the knitting needles are also a crucial factor for the garment to be correct in size.

Do you have something you to when your mind and thoughts just need to rest a bit?

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you 🧡 Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog today 🧡

See you soon I hope 😊

A soft dress in pink ❄👗. The last one for this time is a soft dress in light pink. This one I actually think will fit the little baby princess 👸.

In between work, job and a bit unexpected happenings in life I need to take a “timeout” I need to just let my mind and thoughts rest for a tiny bit- and then it’s good to have some knittin needles and yarn to “play” a bit with 😊🧶.
