I live in Spain and have done now for 29 years.  I am living with kindest man alive.  I lived with my ex-husband in the Middle East for many years before mostly in Beirut and Dubai.   Dubai was then a desert and we were pioneers really.   I loved it then but doubt if I would now.  My partner and I love to just jump in the car and travel around the countryside in Spain and seeing how the real spanish live.  I hate the summer season and try to avoid the tourists as much as possible.  I love to visit with my grandchildren but do not see my son as much as he lives in Paris.  I see my daughter and my grandchild most days and look after her when my daughter is working until she goes to school which will be soon.  I will miss her as she keeps me young.  I love life - and try to live it to the full

    Hi Jacquie,
    I remember when I started
    here on Care2. It was a bit
    over whelming to learn, but
    you will soon be posting comments
    away on your friends pages.
    Have a nice week.
