2 weeks of holiday is over for this time 🌞🏖

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

My 2 weeks holiday is over for this time, – and it has been a nice holiday even a bit fare away from what I had in mind, and what I did planned. But isn’t that the way it is sometimes?

I have used to many days of my holiday to wait for an internet technician to come and fix my internet line in my home 🙄. And that has not been very fun at all, but I should been use to this now- to wait. In Spain “they” have a bad habit to put people “on wait”. I don’t like that at all,- special when they tells me that they are coming “today” or in around 72 hours, or tomorrow, or even more concrete, like Saturday at 13.00. Then I actually do except them to come. But it hasn’t been like that for mostly 3 weeks 🙄. When that’s said, – they actually did come this Saturday at 13.00,- and the only thing they needed to do was to change my router to my internet. It took them less then 30 minutes 🙄. So why let me wait for closely 3 weeks? Special also when they knew I use internet to my work? 😔

But okay,- that’s the way it is,- in Spain it is “manana- manana” ( it means tomorrow tomorrow), or in my “case” “semana-semana” (next week- next week) 😅. This is a part of the culture here, a part and a habit I really dislike and also think its very disrespectful.

My plan for my holiday was to work with my blog, and also do some freelance writing work for around 4 hours every day in the morning,- and then just enjoy my holiday. Use time on my own, use time at the pool, at the beach and together with my children and my friends 😊. But because of the “promise” that there would be an internet technician “today, tomorrow, or in 72 hours”, I have, as I told you, been home and waiting for nothing for many days 😅. But I still manage to create a nice holiday,- special because I needed to “put my self together” and try my best to change my focus from this irritating “off line thing and status” in my home. Positive focus does in general help,- even it’s not “switched over” in just one minute 😊.

I was out for dinner with the team I’m working in. Thd costumer service agent team,- and it was a very nice and cozy dinner 😊.

I have spent a couple of days in La Cala, and visiting my friend Natasja. I also did some work when I was in her home, as well as had a great time together with her 😊.

I have had some relaxing days in the sun and with the pool too 🌞. And I have enjoyed to use some times at my “secret beach” as well. “My” beach that remains me on it’s own way about the Norway as well as the summertime in Norway 🌞. A place where I really enjoy to spend time, summer as winter. To be in the sun, or just watch the ocean and the waves 🏖. Just recover and relax 😊.

I have spent times together with my children, but most because I actually do live together with two of them at the moment 😊. Not quite the “quality- time” I had in my mind,- but still a nice time filled up with joy and laughter 😊.

I have also been “flinging” a bit 😉,- together with the “fling” I started to fling a bit together with before Spain went into “lock down” in March. We actually did started to flirt and fling the 14. February,- but had a tiny “hold” because of the 9 weeks of quarantine in Spain, and also a tiny little bit because of me 🙄. I’m not ready for anything more then a “fling” at the moment. My “experience” from “the bump”/the ex” that dropped me of in Spain is deeper then I thought. So I need a lots of time for just to learn and understand that most men aren’t like “the bump”. I’m working on it, I’m working with myself when it comes to this experiences from earlier in my “relationship- life” 😊.

Anyway,- I have had some nice days together with my “fling”, eating good food, nice conversation and a lots of good laughs too, and spent time on the beach as well 🏖. But I haven’t spent as much time with some of my other friends here in Spain,- that was actually my plan. Hopefully it will be a bit more time for that when we turn around to August 🌞. And I also should been out for a coffee with an earlier colleague of mine too. I hope we can manage that some of the next days 😊.

All in all it has been a nice holiday, special when I focus on the days I didn’t waited for an internet service and technician to come, and managed to fill up my days with nice things and stuff, and create a holiday worth to remember 🌞😊.

Soon it’s back to work, and not just “work from home” , but also at the office. We are moving back to the office now, and also into a new office,- so that will be nice. I do like best to work from my home,- but as long as I like my job and my colleagues good people too, it will be fine to be at the office. I will manage to work in the office as well. I have done it before, many times 😊. And who knows,- maybe I can get the possibility to work more from my home in the future? 😊

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 🌞

From my “secret beach”- “my” place in Spain. A place that’s reminds me of Norway on its own way 🌞

Two weeks of holiday is over for this time. My holiday didn’t went quite the way I had in my mind 😊. But it’s still became a nice, relaxing and cozy holiday with some great memories 😊. And I have spent some relaxing days at my “secret beach” too 🏖.

The swimming pool is open 🏊‍♀️ 😊 ….with a lock 🗝.

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

The swimming pool in the community I’m living in is open now,- and that feels so good 😊. It’s getting warmer and warmer every day,- and it’s not impossible to enjoy the sun at my balcony anymore. Well, – not at daytime at least. It feels like it is at least 50 degrees up there when the sun is shining 😅.

Normally the swimming pool is open up in April, but this April has been a bit different then earlier April’s 😊. This April we was in quarantine and curfew in Spain, but slowly, slowly got our “freedom” back during the lasts weeks 😊. And one of those “freedoms” is be able to use the swimming pool 🏊‍♀️.

There are some few restrictions when it comes to use the pool,- but not to many, and not very difficult to be able to follow either 😊.

We are not allowed to use the toilets that are in the pool area, but that’s not a problem. We live very close to the pool and will manage to use our toilet in the home,- if it should be necessary 🧻. And this 2 metre distance is important to keep, except from the people you are living together with. There’s no sun chairs or umbrellas either this year, so it looks a bit empty the pool area 🏖. But I have my own beach chairs and beach umbrella we can bring with us to the pool 🏖.

It looks a bit empty and naked our pool area without the sun beds and the umbrellas 🏖

And then there is this lock I actually don’t see the point with 🗝. In general the pool is locked down from November to April, but when the gate to the pool is open it’s in general open “all the time”. Except from now.

We have all in this community got an key to this lock. I can’t reach mine in the mailbox, but I got the possibility to copy the key from one of my neighbour. And the copy key is working,- I can lock me in and out from the pool now in “legal” way 🗝🏊‍♀️.

But theres is a is a path at the back of the pool, with stone steps up and a small opening that allows full access to the pool area without having to unlock a lock using a key. I have use this path many times during the Spring time before the swimming pool is open,- and no one have ever said a thing about me using that “road” to go to the pool. But now we need to have our own key to the gate so we can open and lock it again when we are finished using the pool 🤔. But what about the open path to the pool? That’s still there and still open.

Anyone who wants to take a swim in the pool can do this without this “magic” key 🗝. So I actually quite don’t understand the point with the key and the lock.

The first photo from the left is the pool, and the photo is taken from my home. So it’s not fare to walk down to the pool, or run back home for a tiny toilet visit, in case that’s necessary. “Behind” the pool it is two paths, one goes directly up to the pool. The other one also go to the pool, but as well to the houses in our community.

The next 3 photos are the path up to the pool, and the fifth photo the opening to the pool. And the last one is just a tiny photo over the pool area. I actually could show you this better with a move, but I did think about that a bit to late. So next time if I have something I want to show and explain, I will make a move to you instead 😊.

Well,- our pool is open and available for use with some restrictions,- and one of the is to remember to lock the gate with a key so no one else can use the pool. The tiny little thing is that there’s a path on the opposite side of the pool area with free exit to the pool. So I’m actually not sure what the point with this lock and key is 🤔🗝😊. Why it’s so important to remember to lock down something that is open in the opposite side 😊.

Anyway,- it’s great to be able to “cool down” in the pool the next days, weeks and months 🏊‍♀️☀️. Even the pool area looks a tiny bit empty without the sun chairs and umbrellas 🏖.

So I’m very happy for this “magic” key to the pool, at least it gives me the feeling of using the pool “legal” 😊.

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡. Thank you so much for dropping by my blog today too 🧡.

See you soon 😊

The lock to our pool, so we can unlock it and use the pool 🏊‍♀️. So our pool is open now, with a lock. At the same time there’s an open exit on the opposite side of the pool with full possibility to use the pool when ever you want without having any “magical” key 🗝😊.
