What’s this about?
This is Peter and Maureen Scargill's Spanish website. We live in Galera in Andalusia (for clarity, that is the English spelling - Mid-Spain they spell it Andalucia and pronounce it "And-a-loo-thee-a").

We've had a home in Spain for more than 14 years and it is now our permanent base though we retain a small home in the UK.

Find out more about this by reading through the blog entries, menu-accessible pages and archives if you're interested! Welcome to Peter and Maureen's Spanish website.

A bright and Cheerful Monday in Spain and the electronic fly-swatter

Another fine day in Galera. It’s mid-morning and the sun is once again shining. Maureen’s gone off to the village to get some supplies and the all-important fly-stopper for the front door. Despite our excellent electronic tennis-racket-fly-killer and screens on the windows, the odd one is still getting in. I’ve been downloading panorama software so I can stitch stuff together – see the lake shot on the left. Moving the jacussi has apparently fallen through for now due to it being August! Apparently they all go off on holiday in August like we do! I’ll have to take a trip into town to see what can be done.

The builder should be in later to finish off the concrete plynth, meanwhile I’m going to spend a little time on the wiring in here, right now the desk area upstairs resembles a bird’s nest.

For the techies – I’ve been doing most of this blog updating in Firefox – using add-ins ScribeFire and Fireflix, editing images with FastStone and Gimpshop – meanwhile the panoramas are being made in Panorama composer. Almost all of the above is free.

Right, enough chatter, things to do, people to see, places to go. More later as things progress.
