I’m ready for new “adventures” in my life 🌏😊

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

I got my new passport some days before Easter, and it was an incredible good feeling 😊. It felt in a way like a kind of freedom to get my new passport, get rid of the 10 last years, and get ready for some exacting 10 new years 🥰.

Please, misunderstand my correctly,- I have had so many incredible, amazing and fantastic experiences and “adventures” during the last 10 years I will carry around in my heart like precious treasures 👑. I have got friends for life during different experiences during this last 10 years. And of course I would never been without those and them 🧡. But…..there is a “but”, I should wish it wasn’t, but it is…..and that’s life.

Maybe it sounds strange, but I felt like I in a strange way got a part of me back, just me with this new passport 😊. There’s no one else “connected” to this passport then just me, my life, my new adventures in my life, my new travels in my life, – both physical and mental.  Trips that I have to take in both thoughts, soul and mind, and also bodily journeys.  And maybe even eventually some physics travel to other destinations as well 🌏.

Maybe one day I will be standing between magnificent vines in California 🍇, and hopefully there will be trips to Norway so I can hug my middle son 💙. And also meet familie and friends in Norway too. I don’t know at the moment where my different physical travels will be,- it’s just to wait and see what’s happen in the future 😊

This is my adventure in my life. I will meet people who will join for a while for teach me something in life. And I will meet people who will join me for longer period as well as people who will be in their own way with me in one or an other way during the different “travels” I’m going through “from the beginning to the end” 🥰.

But there will also be travels and adventures I need to take and do on my own. Like some of this mental travels for my mind, thoughts and soul.

My body is slowly changing because I’m standing on the start line into that “age”,- this menopause, and I know I need to start with some serious workouts and exercises to keep my body and mind as healthy as possible during the age- process. And the body is slowly changing to even I like it or not,- and just that is a “travel and process” I need to learn how to “handle” 🤸‍♀️😊.

And when my body is slowly changing something also happens in my mind, eith my thoughts and in my soul too 💛.

An adventure in life can be so many different things, and be done in so many different ways 🛍.

What I do know is that I have some interesting and incredible, knowledge and wise, fun and fantastic adventures and travels in front of me without knowing exactly what they are 😊.

And my new passport became a very symbolic part of this “new start” and new adventures I have in front of me. As well as a very symbolic part of what’s behind me.

I needed to renew my passport around the same time as my last child moved out from my home. I’m also standing on the starts line straight into menopause,- both “things” are a kind of “life- changing” process in life,- if I can call it that 😊. And in this process new things in life are dropping up and by in different ways and directions, – like a kind of adventure and travels in my life 🤸‍♀️. And,- it’s actually 10 years since I dropped into a seriously “big bump” in my life. A “bump” I’m incredibly happy to not have I my life anymore, – but if course, and unfortunately it has affected me and my life.

In general most people are not to happy with their passport photo, and I need to admit I haven’t liked my passport photos either before 😊. But this time I really like my new passport photo😊.

I was not allowed to smile or show my teeth, and needed to remove as much hair as possible from my face. I have been sleeping for over two hours on the train to Madrid, and I walked from the train station in Madrid to the Norwegian ambassador in “drumsticks” speed to reach my schedule passport appointment. It took me around 30 minutes to walk, but I haven’t a clue where to walk or not quite sure how long the walk would take,- still I manage it (with a good help from Google maps 😅). I was tired and so hot/ warm 🌡,- but still we made it in one shot this passport photo too 😅.

I like my passport photo. It’s me, a mature woman ready for some new “adventures” and “travels” in my life,- both literally, mentally, emotionally and physically 😊. I don’t know what kinds of travels or adventures I will meet yet, but that’s fine 😊.

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 tiny blue toast for new adventures 🥂😊

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

My daughter has moved out from my/ our home, again, and this time we both are pretty sure it will like this for a time, that we will have our separate homes in the future, but still be in each other’s life 🏡.

It feels good to be “on my own” , at the same time as I need to admit it felt a bit empty without her 😊. But this is the way it is and will be, and it’s fine for both her and me 😊.

We had a tiny little blue toast before she moved out. A blue toast for new adventures in both our lifes, probably very different adventures, but still adventures for us both. Adventures we both are looking forward to experiencing even we have no idea what kind of adventures that are in front of us 😊. But I think it will be some good adventures 💛.

A blue toast for new adventures 🥂

I can say we choose the blue toast because of the symbolic for the blue colour 🎨, but that’s not totally true . It became blue because I need some more glassbottles to paint on, and this one was the cheapest and had also the lowest alcohol level 😊.

Non of us had any need for a lots of “bubbles in our blood” 😊. She was going to move the day after and a bit early in the morning as well, and I was going to work. And this toast also was more a symbolic toast for us A toast for the time we had spent together as well as for the time we have in front of us 😊.

My daughter has this time arranged everything on her own. No help from mammi. She had found the apartment on her own, and arranged the moving with a separate moving car too. I don’t have a car at the moment, but she did find a solution on her own 😊. She has also packed and organized her things on her own, without interference from me. I’m just a mammi so it’s sometimes a bit to difficult to not interference, but I manage to “keep calm” 😅.

2/3 of my daughter’s things and stuff- organize without any interference from me 😊

We was both a bit tired of living together now. I think probably because we knew it was closer and closer to “the moving day”, and also because we are different. We arrange our home and life differently, something that’s also very natural, even we are mammi and daughter. But we are anyway in different stages in life.

It’s small things that can irritate us. Like for example what is mess in my eyes it’s not mess in her eyes. But all in all I need to say,- this living together period has went incredibly well. No fighting or yelling, just a bit “grumping” now and then 😊. And some of this “grumpiness” it’s my “mistake”. It’s this “menopause” and things that can irritate me for actually no reason 😳. I haven’t been like that before 🙄. But to be honest,- I think I have manage to “deal” with my grumpiness in a okay way, and my daughter too 😅. ( It’s going to be good to be grumpy totally alone now, no need for “put my self together” when I’m grumpy 😅).

Plants I have growing up for my daughter 🌱🍀

When my sons moved out their first time they got a basket each filled up with food and soft drinks for around 50 euro each. Food and soft drinks like juice, pasta, different sauces, snacks, ect.

When my daughter moved out her first time she didn’t get anything from me because we knew she was going to move back home for a while 6 months after. But when she moved out again the Autumn 2020 she (and her now ex-boyfriend) got 2 cava and the plan was also to give her (they) some plants I had been growing up for them. But because of the different restrictions I didn’t manage to give the plants to her before she suddenly was back home to my home again. But this time she got the plants with her in the moving car 😊.

To have some plants in the home create the home a bit more homely, and plants creates also a different and good atmosphere 🌳. At least I think so 😊. And plants in their own way represented “growing” 🌞.

I did gave my daughter something else too, as “a moving out gift”, a bit like a kind of a basket filled up with food, but instead of a basket filled up with food she actually got a “food box” where I have put away 5 euro for every week we has been living together this time ( it became 13 weeks) , and I also put a notebook and a pen into the box📝.

As a single mammi I have in general needed to think economic, and one of my economic priorities has been how I shop food. In general I shop food once a week, and I actually have a “food box” in my kitchen with the weekly amount I/ we in general need for food. And then I write down on a shopping list what’s necessary to buy for the next week of food and drinks.

In general this has function very well, except from the last 18 months when I have had a lots of “moving in and out” traffic in my home 😊. It’s not easy to “balance” the food, drinks and money to use when there are different types of people living in my home 😊. But this is actually a good way, at least for me, to have a bit control over the economy.

And I have tried to learn my children this tiny little “trick” of saving money too 😊.

My daughter’s new “food box” to have in her kitchen and keep the weekly amount of “food money” and a pen and a note book to write down what she need to buy for the next week. And 2 sweet chocolate bars too and a matchbox is always good to have 😊 And 7 plants as well to her new apartment 😊.

I’m not rich on money, but I’m creative 😊. And my daughter was very happy and grateful for this “Congratulations with your new home” gift from me 😊.

Ps 1- my first days “on my own” has not yet been on my own 😊. My oldest son, his friend and my son’s dog dropped by, and then a friend of me dropped by after they had left 😊. And Ps 2- I’m really looking forward to get a bit control over my own “food box” in my kitchen again, as well as be able to save a bit on both the electricity and water too now- it is what it is to live together with someone else, but I’m looking forward to get a bit more control over my own economy 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 😊
