Almost – This post is part of SoCS

Since my son’s visit earlier this month I have been very mindful. I didn’t see him since I left Denmark almost 3 years ago, which is very, very long time. Last year I was so lucky to have my daughter at visit here after not having seen her in almost 2 years, which I then felt were much too long time.

Now I do really miss both of my adult kids and wish that I could stay much more close to them and be there to support them, when they need that. Just to be able to visit each other without the need of travel between 1.400 km to 2.300 km first. I really think about leaving Spain to get more close to my kids and I think it will be to Germany, because my daughter lives there and the weather and humidity in Germany is better for my health than in Denmark, where my son is living.

I have been thinking about this for a while and even I love the sun, nice weather and beaches here in Spain, I feel the need to get closer to my kids. So now I’m started to look for houses in same area, where my daughter is living in South Germany close to Stuttgart. I will need to find a house, where I will be allowed to have both Odin and my two old cats, as need a garden to go out and enjoy the fresh air. My cats don’t run so far away any longer at adventures, but they are also almost 12 years old now. When they were younger, they had their adventures, but they don’t run so far now. They are both neutralized and stay close to their home, for what I’m happy.

If any of you have a chance to help me with a house in South Germany for rent, I will very grateful. Until I find one, I will safe money for the movement. It feels good to have taken the descision about this movement and I learned German in the school and used it again many years later, when I studied to be a teacher. So I think it will be back fast, when I start to use it again. Here where I live now, there are many people from Germany and when I meet them, we are talking in German together, which made me believe, that I will learn to use the language again.

I have learned a lot of Spanish, while living here, but still I feel my German is better than my Spanish. When I went to school as a child, we had both English and German with exams. We did also learn to read and understand some Swedish and Norwegian, so we had a chance to understand our neighbors. Later I took some classes in French, but I didn’t use that much for many years, so I’m not able to talk in French today.

What kind of languages did you learn in your life?

Guestblogger: The lady with an eye for shiny things


Dear Readers and Followers,

today the blog entry is written by a guestblogger – Irene’s daughter 🙂

Creativity kind of runs in our family. We are from a line of women creating all sorts of fun projects. Irene is making jewelry, clothes, she knits some amazing scarfs (thanks, mama) – and she makes rolls so good that a daughter would go to Spain to get one. Meanwhile Granma is the queen of knitting, and no one could make as beautiful dresses out of pearls (!) for small mannequin dolls as Great Granma could. Me? Well, I am not mastering any of my creative talents yet, but I guess that it’s because I seek too many adventures at one time.

A little about me: I left to live in South Germany, where you find the most romantic towns and old, beautiful buildings. In other words I’m surrounding myself by architecture looking like this:

And this:

The German Christmas markets are famous all over the world for their wonderful atmosphere – and for their Glühwein (sweet, spicy, warm red wine). The season for these markets will start in just a couple of days, and then I’ll go there myself to pick up new inspiration.

Just like my mom, I also spend a lot of time on various hobbies. One day I might decide to start learning about how to make Japanese origami, and the next day I decide to sew a monster for a friend’s baby. And the day after I find out that there’s an amazing cake called Red Velvet Cheesecake that I have to try making (any excuse for baking is always welcome). Lately I am reading about how to brew beer. And guestblogging.

Irene on the other hand is putting a lot of time and effort into creating her beautiful jewelry. And she’s pretty good at it. She’s spending a long time on thinking about projects, letting the right ideas come to her. It can take a lot patience to make this. She has made it to more than a 100 followers already, which I find pretty impressive. Go mom!

It’s hard to pick favorites out of her collections, but as we all have our personal style, I also have my favorites. Like these cute, purple hoops: Image

Compliment them with the classic black dress, and a girl’s night out just started with lots of style! 😉

My mom loves gemstones – where I often choose the simplicity of the metal – and wear something like these sweet angels:

But we all have our preferences 😉

If you like these jewelry, and if you are in lack of good ideas what to give for Christmas, you should pay a visit to her store on Etsy:

Cyberhugs and best wishes to all of you – and wishes that you’re also living out your dreams, whatever they might be!

The daughter.
