This time of the year 🌞🏖 🎒

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

At this time of the year I had already had holiday guests and friends at visit from Norway as well as I actually know who is coming for visit and when closely during the rest of the year. But not this year, and not last year either.

Last year my home was filled up with “guests”,- my children and some of their friends, but non of my friends from Norway was here. And that’s because of the corona- situation.

I don’t know if there will be any visitors,- like friends and family from Norway this year either. Because of the corona- situation.

In general in April I have already had some visits from friends and family in Norway, and I more and less did knew who was coming in May, June, July, August, September and October.

My friends and family in Norway has been very good to planned their holidays here in my home, and they ask in good time before they even order their trip to Spain and when it’s best for me to have guests.

I’m working, and I have no possibility for take some days off from my job every month from April to October. And I haven’t enough room and space to have them “all at once” either 😊.

Therefore, visitors must be distributed a little throughout the year so that I get good quality time with each one, although I also have to take into account my job.

In general I have at least one visit from Norway every month from April to October. It’s really nice, cozy and so good to see them. But of course also a bit busy to be a hostess in between my job 😊.

Last year was okay, I was actually fine with the fact that no one from Norway could come and visit me here in Spain. My home was already “full booked” 😊.

But I need to admit I don’t like the thought of not having any visitors from Norway this year. No friends, no family. It feels actually a bit sad 😞.

I do understand the corona- situation and why people can’t travel so much “here and there and everywhere” now at days, but still I need to admit it’s feels sad.

I miss my friends and family up there in Norway,- and I like to have vist from them from April to October, even it can be a bit busy with so many guests during 7 months in the year. But still it’s worth the business 😊.

I have had it like this actually since we moved to Spain. Every year the holiday guests starts coming in April, and the last one arrives (and travel back to Norway) in October 😊. It has become a kind of nice and cozy “routines” during the Spring, Summer and Autumn, and inbetween my work 😊.

I know a femal friend of me in Norway is full vaccinated now, or finished vaccine for COVID19. She actually comes a week to ten days three times a year. I have a little hope that she might come to visit one or twice this year. But I do not know.

And of course I hope and wish there will come some more visit from Norway to me during this year, but I need to admit I have my doubts if anyone actually are coming.

What do I do with this summer then?😳 I’m actually use to “fill up” my days and home with some friends and family from Norway now and then during this time of the year,- from April to October 😊.

But,- I will probably manage to create some lovely days together with my friends and children here in Spain too 🌞. So I will not be totally alone all the time 😊.

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 😊

Hopefully there will be some few guests from Norway this year,- but I don’t know yet 😊.

At this time of the year normally I already had some visits from my family and friends in Norway, as well as I in general know how is coming the next weeks and months 😊. But not this year. Maybe there will come some holiday guests, maybe not. Time will show 😊.

Oh, I got more glassbottles and I didn’t need to drink the wine either 🍾🥂😊

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

Like some of you know I like to paint on glassbottles like for example winebottles, beerbottles , cavabottles and a bit more 🎨. But since I don’t drink different kinds of alcohol very much myself I can have a tiny challenge to actually get different kinds of glassbottles to paint on 🍾.

My daughter did actually had a back bag with her on the New Year Party she was at in the new year evening 2020/ 2021😅. And brought home different kinds of glassbottles to me 😊. But my basket with glassbottles are starting to get empty again 😳. Then what to do?Start drinking a lot or send my daughter to a new party with a back bag on her back? Or actually invite my best friend Natasja to visit me and ask her to bring some empty winebottles from her cafe in La Cala? 😍 I invited Natasja 😊.

Look at my soon empty glassbottles basket 😳😊

It’s not totally true that I actually invited Natasja to visit me so I could get more winebottles. It’s over 3 months since we had met, and I really do miss her. And at the moment the city borders are open, so I invited her to visit me for a nice chatt before the Easter is showing up and the city borders are closing down again for the Easter. And I also wanted to give her the glassbottles I have painted to her 🎨. Hopefully we can met up a bit more then every 3 month after the Easter 🥰.

It was after I had invited her it actually did dropped my mind that maybe she could have some empty glassbottles of different kinds after her guests in her cozy cafe. And she had,- actually a bag of empty glassbottles to bring me 😊. And PS,- if you are in Spain and La Cala, – it’s worth to visit the cafe Case Barella for some great and tasty food, good drinks and a very cozy atmosphere 🍔🍷.

I’m very happy for all the empty glassbottles I got from Natasja, but I’m more grateful for the visit 🥰. It was so nice to see her again, hug her, chatt up, just spend some really good quality time together 😊.

It’s strang how this corona- situation has changed out social needs. Not the habits, but our needs. Our social habits are in so many ways controlled by different restrictions, something that also, of course, changes our social needs. But I should think and believe that we would get an ever stronger and bigger need to “meet up” when we had the chance? But it’s actually not quite like that for many people. It’s, unfortunately, the opposite. For many, including me, and some of my friends too, it’s more difficult to “move my ass” from my sofa and home and socials then it was before the corona- situation.

I’m not sure why it’s became like this, because it maybe should be, like I mention, the opposite? It can be different reasons like use of mask, or worries for the coronavirus? I don’t know.

But I know I’m very grateful that Natasja wanted to visit me 🧡. It was so great to see her again and talk about about “all and everything”, and actually not to much about the coronavirus. It’s really good to take a break from that “subject” now and then. And we are good to take a break from it and find some other, better and more interesting subjects to talk about instead 😊. I’m so grateful for having her in my life and for this vist and “timeout” 🥰.

And now I can take my own break too from the “corona- situation” and “drop” down in more winebottles and paint and create and be creative 🎨.

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 at this,- a bag filled up with empty glassbottles or different kinds – just ready to get some new illustrations from me 🎨

My basket with glassbottles is starting to get empty, but after a lovely visit from one of my best friends my basket is filled up again with a lots of possibility for me to be creative 🎨. But the best thing was still the visit, a great “timeout” with good chatts, laughter and great conversations together with my friend 🥰.
