A Dozen Questions -Orkidedatter-

This post I am going to answer some questions about me, and the post is only in English. I think this was interesting, and I will answer as best I can do. I was encouraged, inspired and motivated by  betulerbasi. Thank you Betul. If you want to read her own post, go ahead and read it A Dozen Questions -Betul Erbasi

She is a blogger who is incredibly talented and her writing touches me far into the heart and deep into my soul❤️

My answers:

1. What are your nicknames? What do you prefor to be called?

I have nicknames like «Vimsa» (maybe is vims in English…)because I’m luttery. Ideally, I like to be called by my name.

But as a blogger and artist and author, I use the Orkidedatter. There is a reason for that, comes a post about it later, and I’m so incredibly fond of that name.

Now on wordpress I have been called butterfly 🦋by several and it is okei. In my writings, I often use butterflies to interpret myself. I also have a pseudonym name on my blog, so it may be that way because of it. But to be called butterfly I think is just beautiful. Butterflies is meaning something special to me. In the blogworld it is Orkidedatter.

2. What do you do when you can’t sleep at night?

Read, do meditation or my husband gives me foot massage and healing.

3. Do people consider you as talkative or quiet?

My closest family will tell me that I am talkative. I’m not really that. I am both shy and careful. It depends…If I become confident, create a relationship, faith and trust you, I can talk a lot with you.

4. What makes you cry?

There is a lot that can make me cry. Injustice, anger, frustration, fear, sadness, many feelings … I’m starting to cry more easily after I got sick and it can prevent me a bit of everyday. .. there is a difference between sad tears and joy tears ..

5. What is your quilty pleasure?

I have to read books, newspapers and magazines in paper, and read about sex and cohabitation and erotic short stories. It probably because that I have further education in being a counselor and advisor myself and great interest in sexology. I love to write erotic short storys myself and they are released in Norway.

6. Are you more likely to avoid conflict or engage in it head on?

I don’t like conflicts and try to avoid them, but sometimes I have to. It can be a little bit challenge because I start to cry to easy…

In the job context, there is a lot of conflict resolution both in psychiatry that I have worked in and in connection with children in kindergarten and the school system. I always work with heart and have always worked for the best for the child anyway. Many tough situations, trials about incest and others. Then I can’t avoid conflicts. It should be solved in a proper and professional manner, although not always the counterpart does.

Today I have taken a step back and have leave from work because it has been too much and when I cannot work with heart, then I have to think about what to do.

7. Do you have a whole lot of acquaintances or just a few close friends?

Because of my past I am very skeptical and cautious about who I take into my heart. When you get into my heart I am your friend for life if you want. So I have a few close friends. But I can go out, be a little social and when enough is enough I just go home before my anxetiy take over. I have learned to confront and live with anxiety, but I also know my boundaries.

8. What is your all-time favorite town or city?

In Norway it is the city of Kristiansand, it is located almost furthest south in the country and has beaches and archipelagos as like Spain or Crete. Old wooden houses and pleasant pedestrian streets with lovely outdoor seating in the summer and very nice restaurants for dinner and socializing.

A bustling nightlife with many festivals and good music. An atmosphere that gives me energy and a good mood. If you are fond of photographing or just enjoying fantastic scenery, this is a unique place.

Without Norway, I love Crete, the city of Chania and Agia Marina and Platanias. I have no word for this place, the people who live there, culture and nature. I love the sea and the beach, atmosphere, shopping and the food is a experience of it self.

9. What is your favorite song?

That was a difficult one, because I love a lot of different music, but right now I choose,

Lewis Capaldi – tough

Alan Walker – the spectre

10. You can select one person from history and have them truthfully answer one question. Who would you select and what would your question be?

I can go far back in history, there are many interesting people there, but I choose Elvisthe King of rock.

Question: Please, can I design your clothes for the next tour?

11. List someone you know and describe them in five words?

A heart of beaty, soulmate, caring, love, responsive❤️

My husband: https://skogenssoenn.wordpress.com

12. What is your biggest pet peeve?

Falsehood, liars, cheats…


This was challenging and fun. If more of you bloggers want to answer these questions, I am grateful, it’s very nice to learn more about you all.

    1. Thank you very much, I’m glad you liked it, it warms my heart🦋I have to take a break because I have to get/find back to myself and because I can’t work with heart and do the best job for the kids and those I have been the leadee for and also advised and guided. It doesn’t get right for those people. I loved my job, but it’s no longer going.
      I wish you a nice evening🦋

  2. Lillian/Orchid daughter, this was cool. Thank you for sharing a little about yourself. I look forward to reading more of your posts especially the one you mentioned about why your chose Orchid daughter. Sounds interesting 🙂

    For real, though do I call you Lillian in comment threads or do you want it to Orchid Daughter or just Orchid?

    Every month I share with my readers blog posts that I have read for that month and when I do I try to use the name that particular blogger prefers.

    Kristiansand sounds like a very cool place to visit 🙂

    1. So nice you like this post. It warms my heart. I am grateful🦋
      The post about Orchid daughter coming soon. I really appreciate for asking me exactly that. In the blog world I am known as Orkidedatter / Orchid daughter, so I’d rather be called this. If you write the Norwegian version of my name or choose to use English version of my name, choose yourself. Do what you think is natural.
      I wish you a lovely day or evening.. I really appreciate your time on my blog, reading and coment.
      Thank you🦋 it means a lot to me🦋

  5. That was great to get to know more about you! I knew your name meant Orchid daughter, I don’t know Norwegian but sometimes it is similar enough to Swedish that I can figure out the meaning. I enjoy your posts and certainly look forward to more, especially how you got your name. I really hope you have a wonderful day! Probably already early Monday morning for you!😁

    1. What a nice comment to wake up to, thank you so much. I am very grateful for your time and coment on my blog, it means a lot to me🦋
      Swedish it is similar to Norwegian, thats tru, so are you swedish?…
      Became a little curious now as you mention the neighboring country. I am in Sweden from time to time, do not live so far from the border. Cheaper to shop there.
      I wish you a lovely day filled with happiness🦋


      1. Good morning! My Mom’s family was from Sweden, my grandmother lived on a farm not too far from Stockholm, my grandfather was from farther north. So my Mom taught me some Swedish, unfortunately I have forgotten a lot now since she passed away. I’m surprised that it’s cheaper to shop in Sweden. I hope you have a wonderful day!
