I do not know my work schedule for April yet 😳🎧

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

It’s not totally true that I’m not know my work schedule for April yet, because I know what time I’m going to start my customer service agent job today, but this is so fare the only day I know for April 😳.

It’s not the biggest “challenge” in the world, because I’m going to start my working day at 08.00 in the morning or at 09.00. And then of course end the working day one hour earlier or later then before 😊.

It had just been nice to know this actually before the month started because then it has been a bit easier to create other plans too 😊.

I have students I need to schedule and I have my freelance work I need to schedule too 📚💻. And my plan was to squeeze in some workout and time for exercises as well 🤸‍♀️.

One hour forward or backwards sounds maybe not like a big deal, and it’s actually not that either as long as I know if it’s forward or backwards, and when it is ⏳.

It’s for example not easy to make a good plan to my students when it’s like this. And I like to give the lessons plan/ schedule to my students for the month actually before the next month is starting so my students know when and what to do for the upcoming month.

This time, this month I couldn’t do that, and to be honest it’s feel a bit unprofessional from me as a teacher, even it’s not my mistake it is like this. I don’t like that, but at the moment it’s not very much I can do with that.

And for me it could be nice to know if I could squeeze in workout and exercises before I’m starting at my customer service agent job, or after.

The freelance work is something I can more and less log in and out when I want. But if I want to earn some money I actually need to have a tiny private schedule I can follow, also so I more and less know what time I just can take a tiny “time out” from “all and everything ” too 😊.

So,- yes,- I’m very happy I have just done a bit of “this and that” and what I wanted to do during the Easter holiday, and in my own way “refilled” my batteries in my body 😊. And I’m very happy I’m working from my home, it makes it at least a bit easier to change the different few plans I have made for April at the moment 😊.

Hopefully I will have the work schedule for April during the day,- and can take “the rest” from there,- but I like to be a bit in front because it’s easier to create plans when I know what to do and when to do it,- even when I’m working from my home 😊.

I don’t know about you,- but I like to know as best as I can and as best as it’s possible how to plan my days both when it comes to work as well as the time off from work 😊. I like plans to be honest ,- it’s make my days a bit easier, special if something unexpected is “showing” up 😊.

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 😊

Not to many schedule plans for April yet- hopefully it will soon be possible to do the different schedules for the month 😊⏳

We are already closely one week in April,- but I’m still not sure how my work schedule in my customer service agent job is 🎧. Hopefully I will get the schedule for April during the day 😊,- and then be able to create more plans for April from there 😊.

Once a week…. 🖥😊

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

Obviously my work computer wants a walk once a week this month. And not just a walk “anywhere”, but a walk straight to the office 😳 at my back in my backbag.

Maybe it’s miss the office? Or maybe it think I need this walk during my working- hours? Or maybe it just want me to take a tiny look at the IT- guys in the office?

I need to admit there’s a couple of men at the IT- office that’s not to bad to “rest my eyes on” 😍. But since I have decided to not date for a while, it’s actually also just what I do at the moment, – “rest my eyes” 😊. And maybe my eyes need a tiny little rest after the walk too? Because it’s a tiny bit of a walk, special when I actually don’t have the time for it, because it is in my working- hours. If my computer is not working I can’t do my work, then it’s need to be fixed, special in my ordinary working- hours.

It takes around 45 minutes to walk down to the office from my home, and it’s down all the way from my home. It’s a bit heavier on the way back home, because it’s actually up then, up, up, up with my computer on my back 📠. So I use closely one hour back home again.

On my way to the office with my computer in my bag back 📠😊.

The computer is not heavy. I have actually carried much heavier “stuff” (like food and drinks) in my back bag, but when you walk as fast as you can, just to not loose to much working hours, it feels a bit more heavy then it is 😊. I actually feel a bit like my legs and feet walks like drumsticks 😅.

So why does my computer makes a bit of trouble once a week? And why haven’t it done this before? Well,- I think one of the IT- guys found the “solution” today- at least I hope so. Because I’m in general never prepared for this walks, and I actually don’t want to have a new one next week 😅.

Some weeks ago I got fiber optic in my home, but I also have this other internet too. I have all the time had my working computer connected to the other internet, but it seems that it wants to be “connected” to the fiber optic, or maybe be moved to another place in my home 😳. Is it “joules” at the fiber optic? I use that internet to my freelance work 💻.

I got some different cables with me home, and some few tips and tricks how to “deal” with my working computer if it’s starts to make troubles again. And the trouble it has created,- well,- it will actually not be turn on in the morning. The screen became just been nice and blue 😳. So I’m not getting anywhere with my work. Hopefully this is now fixed 😊.

It’s actually a nice walk to the office when I’m mentally prepared for the walk. When I’m not mentally prepared for this walk it’s a bit stressful walk 🚶‍♀️🏃‍♀️.

And this is the last steps up before I’m home after a walk. Good exercises- that’s for sure 😊.

Well,- I’m trying my best to enjoy this drumsticks walking to and back from the office as best as I can, but I really do cross my fingers that this, hopefully, was the last unexpected drumsticks walk to my office 🤞🏃‍♀️. I think “exercises” and I try to take a look around me and enjoying the nature and atmosphere as well, at the same time as I wish inside me that I don’t need to do this walk next week, and also feeling very grateful for actually having a job 🙏 😊. And it’s actually really nice to meet and chatt up a bit with the few colleagues that’s working at the office 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 😊.

Lucky for me it’s just this computer box I need to carry with me,- and look at the beautiful flowers at the trees 🦋. It’s Spring in the air 🥀

I like to take a good walk now and then, actually a bit more then that, actually a couple of times during the week 🚶‍♀️. But I like to be mentally prepared for my walks, and during the lasts weeks I have got a walk I was not prepared for 😳. A walk that makes my feet walk like drumsticks too 😅🥁.

7 months is not even the Spanish “manana manana” 😳😅 ….or? 🤔

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

Things takes time in Spain. Not all things, but actually still a lot, special when it comes to different constructing- works, public office work and a bit more. Also sometimes just standing in the line in the store can take a bit time. Let me put it this way,- I’m become a bit good to accept to wait for things here in Spain. As means also accepting that things probably never will happen,- like get a fiber net into my home. I at least thought 🙄.

As some of you know I’m teaching some Spanish students to learn Norwegian, and I’m using ordinary Norwegian teaching books and teaching materials.

In one of the books I’m using we are at the moment in the subject area of “studies, education and work”. And one of the questions in the capital we are going through was about different works- culture and traditions in different countries.

I needed to laugh a bit when my student told my that the work- culture in Spain was a bit “manana manana”,- because that’s so true 😅. It means “tomorrow tomorrow”. “We do it tomorrow”, “we will finish it tomorrow”,- and then it’s a new “tomorrow” again and again 🙄.

I have this experience in different areas myself when it come to waiting and “manana” here in Spain. Waiting for a new washing machine for severals weeks, or waiting for new wheels to my car, waiting for students to show up, waiting for money after doing some work, waiting for a date on a cafe, waiting for the bathroom to be fixed, waiting…. waiting….and waiting a bit more on and at different levels, things, stuffs 🙄. And I’m still not use to or comfortable with this “manana manana”. I still think its disrespected and I don’t like this part of the Spanish culture,- to be honest.

I have tried to change my internet for a while as some of you know, and the plan was actually to get fiber net into my home last summer. Jepp,- last summer. That never happen, and after 4 months of waiting I just cancelled the whole fiber net contract.

Different techniques and fitters come and went again without doing anything. Some said it wasn’t possible and some said “manana”. So to the end I did cancel the contract and order my own internet instead. A stable internet service, good connection and very functional everywhere as long as there are 4G in the area.

And yes it’s my own internet, in a way, because I can use it all over Spain and it’s not connected to any special company. I need to pay for the monthly use, of course, and I also needed to buy the internet box and sim- card. But it still in it’s own way my internet ,- and it’s in function 😊.

I’m working from my home and then a functional and stable internet it’s a must. If not I can’t do my work. No work, no income.

But suddenly last week I got an text message on my phone that the plan was to install fiber internett into my home. The technique actually did call me too. But to be honest, I actually didn’t believe it, or him. And I didn’t care very much about the message or time or appointment or nothing either. I have heard this so many times during the last months already 😅.

But,- the technique did actually come 🙄. And started to plug cables and move around my stuff in the livingroom. He was even under my working- desk when I was working 😅. I’m actually a bit happy no one did see that, because that “situation” could easily been a bit misunderstood 🤭.

And “vola” after 3 hours of work from the technique I got the fiber internett I order 7 months ago 😅. I think that’s the longest “manana manana” I have experienced so fare here in Spain 😅.

After having a unstable and expensive internet for to long- I have suddenly two different and very functional internet in my home 😅…and not to expensive either.

Well,- I actually don’t need two different internet in my home, but it’s not to bad to have a internet “back up” either 😊. Special after the different not best internet experiences I have had during the last years. But I should probably had this solution last year when we was around three persons who had home- office in my home for several months.

Well,- it’s an expression that say “better late then never”,- and I can be agree about that. And maybe I can work twice as much now since I have two different internet connections and solutions in my home? 😊

Like I mention,- I’m not the biggest fan of this “manana manana” attitude many have here in Spain, but what to do? It’s to find solutions on your own, or accept the things for what it is 😊. Or maybe hope that this “manana manana ” attitude will change one day? I’m not sure about that, because it’s, unfortunately, a part of the culture here in Spain. But it’s always allowed to hope 😊.

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 bit work both outside and inside my home to manage to get the fiber internett,- but it’s in good function now 😊.

It’s different cultures and traditions in different countries all over the world 🌏,- also when it comes to the work- situation and the work- culture 🛠. Spain is a bit “famous” for the “manana manana” work- culture and attitude 🙄. A kind of “culture” and attitude I’m not the biggest fan of to be honest….special not when the “manana” takes 7 months 😅.

Goodbye January 👋 ,- and Hello to you February 🤗

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

January is over, and to be honest I’m a bit happy for that 😊. In a way I actually feel a bit relieved that we are turning into a new month.

It feels like January was a bit stressful and chaotic month, but at the same time touched with different happy and nice “events” and happenings 😊.

It has been changes and challenges, knowledge and wisdom, and some new experiences too. Not to much of anything actually, at the same time some small “events” that can feel more than big enough when they are more and less coming like “beads on a string” 📿.

And like I just mention,- it’s actually not a very big deal most of the changes and challenges that has touched my life in January. They just feel a bit like that 😊.

To be honest I was not prepared to live together with one of my children again so soon after my last babyduckhad moved out. And my daughter was not prepared to live together with me again so soon after moving out either. That has been a tiny bit changes and challenges for both of us. But probably because it all happened so fast, and under some “unexpected” circumstances. But all in all I actually can say we, both she and me are doing well,- we was not just very hood prepared for changing our life- and living together situation in a sudden turn 😊.

It has been different things that needed to be reorganize in both her and my life. Her rent- contract together with her ex- boyfriend needed to be changed, different last of her things needed to be picked up at the apartment she was living in. We didn’t manage to pick up all in the beginning. And there’s had been a couple of hospital visits too, just to check that the different “damage” in her body was healing the way they should.

And then there has been some few other challenges, not critical at all, but the internet collapsed, the fridge, freezer and oven closely said “bye- bye”. And the television obviously lives it’s own life after a very stormy weekend with both a lots of rain and even snow. Non of this are actually a big deal, but when it feels like it “all” happens at the same time it can feels a tiny bit chaotic together with the rest of the things we need to handle in January.

And then I ( and my colleagues) also got the news that the department we are working for are going to close down in Norway in June this year. That was not the best news to get. I really like the department I’m working for at the moment, so it feels a bit sad that I’m not going to be working there anymore. But the company I’m working for have already organised a new job for all of us to an other department. I’m starting there in the end if March or beginning of April.

I have also sendt my CV to two other jobs, – just in case. I don’t know if I will get one of them, but I need to admit I cross my fingers for that. At the same time as I feel lucky because I will anyway have a new job to go to in a couple months.

My birthday is also in the end of January, and I’m now actually 48 years old 😳 😊. No celebration this year. It’s actually 10 years since I have celebrate or had any kind of marking of my birthday. Last time was to my 38 year birthday so I’m actually use to not have any birthday- celebration or marking of my birthday. No hard feelings for that😊. But of course I have some different thoughts about getting older even I, at the moment, at the same time haven’t had to much time to think about this “getting older process” either. An it can be interesting to be 48 year old, and maybe be richer and wiser? 😅

I haven’t had so much time for my freelance work as I should in January, but on the other hand I have been teaching and I have also been knitting, painting and even baking a bit. And being a mammi 🧡.

It’s a couple of things that’s easier to do when I’m alone then sourrende by someone. And that’s my freelance work, writing my blog and study Spanish. I just need to focus as best as I can on my freelance work and my blog, and focus more on the Spanish language studies later.

And I had also a very nice and cozy visit from friend in January with a movie- evening and a sleepover. We have curfew between 22.00 in the evening to 06.00 in the morning. So then it’s best to choose to have a sleepover visit 😊.

I also needed to reorganize our things and stuffs in Norway from one place to another while we are waiting for those things to be able to be removed from Norway to Spain. Lucky for me my parents and my son in the middle helped us with that one. Something I’m very grateful for 🧡.

So, yes,- I feel January was a bit busy and challenged month, but here we are, turning “the page” over to February 😊.

I do not know what expectations I have for February. I know I need to have a meeting in the bank and stop some payments to a internet company. And I need to go to the post office, and I also need to get a new passport.

Free shiping over 69$

All this offices are just open when I’m at work. But lucky for me, I’m working together with some great colleagues, and I know they can change shifts with me. The challenge will be the passport, because that one I need to do in an other city then I live in, and at the moment the borders between the cities are closed.

I also know I need to start up again with my workout and exercises. Phu,- but I’m getting older and I want to take care of my health, and a part of taking care of my health is to do some regular workout and exercises. And I know I need to try my very best to focus more and harder on my freelance work.

My daughter is still going to live with me during February 😊. And I’m probably going to continue work fulltime from home 😊. I hope I get some positive feedback on one off the CV I have sent out. And maybe I can have a new movie- evening and sleepover together with my friend too? That would actually be very nice 😊.

And maybe we also will get our first part of our things and stuffs from Norway in the end of February too? I don’t know yet.

It’s a couple of things to do in February too, but I still hope February will be a bit more calm then January was 😊. At the moment is just to say,- Hello and welcome Februar. I hope you will be a bit calmer than January was ❄😊.

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 🧡

See you soon 😊

I became 48 year in January- hopefully that will be an interesting age to be in 😊

Bye- Bye busy January 😊. My birthday month was a bit busy, and it felt actually a bit good to turn “the page” to February now 😊. I don’t know how February will be, or what kind of “suprices” that one can “show up” with. What I do know so fare is that it will probably not be a boring month 😊. There’s “always” things to do 😊.
