The first thing to know is I have four fabulous children and three adorable grandchildren. I live in Malaga province, Spain, and I love my life.
I am blessed to have wonderful friends in my life both here in Spain and the UK.
I follow the teachings of Buddha, and endeavour to live my life with an open heart and in a mindful, compassionate and loving way. I endevour to live in the moment, and to take each day as it comes.
I grow a lot of organic vegetables and eat an 80% raw food diet. I really enjoy preparing food and experimenting with varied combinations and recipes. However not all of them turn out well ;-(
One of the major reasons I love living in Spain is for the wide open spaces; a sense of space and clean air. I am perfectly positioned for the coast and it's beaches, and the inland mountanous landscapes, and lakes which are perfect for swimming and camping. Check out a place called 'El Chorro'.....it is magnificent.
Another reason I love it so much here, (particularly living inland) is there are less people and fewer cars. Of course, the coast will be busier as the beaches are great, but if you love peace and quiet, inland is the place to be, with a choice of going to the coast.
Things I cannot live without? Love; Buddhist philosophy; My Blendtec Blender, and a Food Processor; Books; My laptop (I love (website hidden) for research).
