Meeting New friends

Hello, I`m a 45 year old woman with friends from different nationalities. I work just in the morning, but my friends work all day For this reason I have a lot of free time, so I would like to find people in my similar situation. People who would like to meet sometimes for a drink or to share hobbies. I like music, dancing, paying cards and scrabble, gardening, cooking, swimming, painting, playing badminton, etc.   I prefer to meet in Torrox Coast but I could meet in Caleta or Torre Del Mar, too.I hope you are in my similar situation and join me.                                                 e-mail:    silvia_d40  @  hotmail, com
