My new…..

Standard

…Rocking chair

Yes I am a proud owner of a Rocking Chair.

In my 20’s I bought myself a bamboo rocking chair

but had to leave it behind when I moved to London.

Now after many years

I saw this rocking chair smiling at me

in a local second hand shop.

We are together now and both happy.

 

When I told others about my purchase I had different responses,

which surprised me.

One was that it makes marks on the carpet,

the other one was , that only old people have rocking chairs.

Funny what people think….

♥♥♥

Just imagine

sitting in the rocking chair

rocking calmly,

reading a book,

having a cup of hot chocolate nearby,

or just day dreaming,

listening to music,

meditating,

relaxing!

For me, it is as good as a hammock between 2 palm trees!

A piece of paradise!

What do you think?

We all have ups and downs and some days we feel it cannot get worse.

we feel lost,

we feel sad,

we feel alone.

 

 

Never give up Hope.

Hope will give you

strength,

determination,

encouragement,

confidence

and it will get you through.

The sun will rise

and we will try again!

*****

If you are in a situation like that at the moment,

please know that you are not alone and you are precious and loved.

My best wishes for you

and may the sun rise for you soon again.

Sending hugs and comfort to you.

 

Much love

from me!

A day in Barcelona

Standard

Barcelona is a wonderful city and so much to see.

An amazing church building – La Sagrada Familia from the Architect Antoni Gaudi which he started building in 1883.  Knowing he will not see it finished, he spent 40 years building and left plans for his successors. He is buried under the nave.

On the link on his name is a short video what it will look like when it is finished hopefully in 2026, ready for Gaudi’s 100th anniversary of his death.

His buildings and casas are all over Barcelona.

Next was the “Casa de les Punxes” or Casa Terradas which was build for 3 sisters by a different architect looking more like a castle.

Casa de les Punxes

All details are just fabulous even the balcony tiles from the bottom.

We walked to the next of Gaudi’s buildings the Casa Mila. This was built as an apartment block.

Casa Mila

We continued our walk to the next Gaudi Casa along the famous and really large Passeig Gracia. This Road is tree lined, has exclusive shops, wide pavements and amazing old buildings. The pavement is tiled with Gaudi tiles; aren’t they beautiful?

Along there we came to Casa Batllo, a colourful casa built by Gaudi again.

 

Casa Batllo

Next to this casa is a Netherland style casa called Casa Amatller from the same architect as the Casa de Punxes above.

Casa Amatller and Casa Batllo

So many casas…. it was so interesting.

Casa Lleo Morera

 

 

Admiring all buildings we headed to the Cathedral. As the queues were everywhere terribly long, we continued to walk and see all from outside – we only had one day.

Then we went through small little roads to our last stop The Arc de Triomf.

Arc de Triomf

This Arc de Triomf was build in 1888 as an entrance to the Barcelona World Fair, a very impressive building.

We walked over 20000 steps as my step counter showed and were ready to go back by train to village were we stayed.

This was a short one day tour of Barcelona, hope you enjoyed the sites.

I have visited Barcelona on the 8th August and this post was put together before the terror attack in Barcelona. It is terrible to think what happened and my thoughts and prayers are with the people who died or were injured in the attack.  I pray that the world become a safer place.
