Hey Maria!

My sister has been living in Ireland since August 2011. She moved to be with her boyfriend and they now live in Tower, Blarney. She works for Apple and she absolutely loves her new life.

As for me, I live just outside Athens with my husband and our 2 children. The economy and the general living situation here in Greece is really worrying. We'll have to see what happens. I might be joining my sister in Ireland soon!!!

Sending you greetings from sunny Greece xxx

P.S. I have added you as a friend. I hope you don't mind. Please feel free to do so too.

Hello Maria!

I stumbled upon your page since we have a common friend, SUNNY112358. I was excited to see that you're from Ireland and it really made me smile when I saw the photograph of you at Blarney castle. This is because my sister moved to Ireland from Greece last August and you're probably living in the same area. She works in Cork and when my mum first went over to visit, the first place she took her was Blarney castle :) I suppose it really is a small world as they say.

Anyway, I just wanted to say hi and to wish you good luck in your goals.

Elen from Greece

Hi MariaSparkle
sorry it's taken me so long to reply, I haven't been doing that well on the diet front so I haven't checked into Spark for a while. I was so sorry to hear about your exams. You know what's best for you, but perhaps after you recover from the intense studying you'll see things in a different light and decide to try again. Good luck!
I know what you mean about gaining some weight while studying, it happened to me too. Hope you are back on track now.
As for knitting, I agree, I find it very therapeutic.
Wishing you the very best!

Hey! Glad you finally surfaced :-) Sorry to hear about the exams but as you said, sometimes sanity is worth more than the cash! I tried knitting - I'm not sure it is any less mind-bending :-) Boo on the 12lbs but at least you can refocus now and take it off.

Things have been a bit manic here as well. I, very expectedly, got a promotion in July that made things nothing short of crazy. Then, our offices moved in October and so we had all of that to iron out. I was never so grateful for the University's Christmas break as I was this year! We have had a remarkably balmy winter for Pittsburgh so I have been able to exercise outside much more than I would typically - not that the weight has been coming off, but at least the endorphins keep me from wanting to beat up on people :-) Hope all is well and will talk with you soon!
