Happy Fall. I'm taking control of my life. I'm tired of being overweight and how the effects ripples over into all parts of my life. I need to take control of my health. Right now,my health problems have to do with the way I eat and not move. I need to be more conscious of the choices I make. I need to do this and take control of my life :)

    Hello my dear friend !

    Thank you for leaving a comment on my Sparkpage ! I really am so happy to have met up with you. Well now, you asked me what sort of fun-things could someone do here? I only live in a sort of urbanization......not even a town.......we do have 2 nice beaches that are walking distance from where I live. Oh dear we have not much else.........lots of resturants and bars......not my sort of thing really. I do not drink, and neither do any of my children . I do go to the resturants when family come to visit. Of course .......I forgot , we have MAXX GYM here overlooks the Mediteranian sea , the veiw from inside the gym is really good (as you sweat it out !) Mostly, I like to go walking , it's gratis!
    People really come here for the beaches and the bars I think.......alcohol is cheap here .

    We have real April/showery weather right now....but it's not cold. We get 330 days of sun-shine a year....."so they say"

    I have had SO many jobs........I worked in shops , Hotels, and've heard of Dell computer's.........well I worked with them for quite a a sort of "robot" assembling computer's.
    After my husband passed away , I decided to sell my home in Ireland and move to Spain........and here I am.......So now I'm a MATURE student of Spanish ......well, I'm trying !

    When you find out where in Ireland your family came from , do please let me know.........perhaps we are cousin's !
    Good heaven's Iv'e written lots here.......I must be off now........

    Good-bye my dear friend, take good care of yourself,
    Lots of love to you, Rosemary.
