Parenting in Spain, Sweden & Australia

It's all good

Good evening lovely readers, long time no see. I've been meaning to update the blog for a while, but I've been such a busy bee, I did not find the time. A lot has happened, and today, at this very moment, I feel so extremely liberated and simply happy.

We had a tough start here in Spain; Noah felt uncomfortable in his new school, we did not have a home, and work started off slow, but things are turning around for the better. Noah has now been to school for three weeks, and he has finally started to relax; he doesn't cry anymore when I drop him off, and they always tell me he's been very happy all day when I pick him up. He eats well there, and he sleeps long hours which I take as a sign of comfort. I've now been at the new job for two weeks, and up until just a few hours ago, I felt like I was never going to make it there. Everyone around me was making a sell after sell after sell, and I was just sitting there, trying to do the same, but failed each time. I've been so close, several times a day, and then I only ended up hearing that big fat NO that nobody ever wants to hear... until today. I've been walking around all day with a slight hangover, a bad headache, and a painful back, and I seriously just wanted to give up. I kept thinking "if I haven't made it the other days, I'll for sure not make it today!" but ten minutes before we ended for the day. I just thought, fuck it, I am not going to spend my weekend feeling like that again, a failure. So I took the phone call, and I pushed and pushed the customer until I finally did it. I made a sale. I worked overtime and it was so worth it. It felt great to finally get there after all week of trying so hard. I think that's the happiest I've been since I gave birth... just kidding, but I got very happy. So I picked up Noah from school, and we celebrated by going to eat tapas.

And as for our living arrangements, we finally moved into an apartment a week ago exactly, and I love it. We have two bedrooms, two floors and three balconies, so Noah has finally started sleeping in his own bed. It has been three nights in a row now, and he's slept in there until about 4 o'clock, then he comes over to my bed, but its going really well. I can tell he's starting to feel comfortable here, and that he's equally relieved as I am to finally have gotten a home.

Now we are going to spend whats left of this Friday, and watch some TV and cuddle before going to bed. Tomorrow we are going to have a long sleep in; I can't wait! Good night all. I'll blog soon again <3 If there is anything in particular you want me to blog about, write a comment below xx
