Noise Pollution linked to severe health issues!

Noise pollutionExperientially speaking, I completely get this idea.  However, for me, the most annoying environmental noise isn’t from traffic, factories or the ferocious seagulls that live in Málaga, it’s the incessant jibber-jabba of people and the unmelodious noise that some buskers make with their musical instruments . So, what type of noise gets on your nerves?

Janette is in 7th heaven!

Joy is to be shared! Everyone leap up and down Janette is in 7th heaven, yes she’s on cloud 9, she’s over the moon!

Don’t you just love it when a plan works out? Don’t you feel like a kid in a toy shop when the unexpected sends you delirious with pleasure? Of course, the answer is YES.

So, what’s the story Janette?
No, I’ve not won the lottery. No I’ve not met Mr Right, or Mr Wrong or Mr In-Between. No, I’ve not been getting close and personal with the local drug-dealer, ( what a pity!) and no, I’ve not managed not to burn a pot or a pan this weekend. You can all feel safe in the knowledge that Janette still can’t cook; ( Seriously, how can frying an egg be a challenge!?)

But, I have got one of these.  molotov DukeboxYep, a ticket to see Molotov Jukebox live.  I’m crazy with excitement! Not heard of Molotov Jukebox? OMG, check them out.

RondaAnd, I’m going to have this view for my pre-Christmas mini-getaway. It’s just too delicious for words!

And, last Saturday my gym instructor surprised me with the best spinning class I have ever, EVER had, and it was all to classical music. I am still on my knees bowing to the brilliance of this woman.

Inma, you are the WOMAN!  I feel inspired and challenged and I can’t wait to get my arse back on the saddle!
