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 lovely day in Galera

Viewing Galera, Andalucia

Since arriving here the weather has been superb, hitting highs of up to 27 degrees and the evenings a sensible 25C – of course in our cave it’s nice and cool at night.   I’ve spent most of today in a video conference with the office – and I have another two days of that on and off. I was particularly gratified to note that in several hours of meeting the video didn’t screw up once.. we had SKYPE for audio and video – and GotoMeeting so I could see the Powerpoints… I didn’t want to miss important meetings but I was damned if I was going to miss out in the tan – so not a bad compromise considering it’s apparently pouring down in Blackpool And back home – we have people looking after the house in the UK so no worries there, the cats will be fine…

Another view from the caveAlready gotten some painting done, tomorrow we need to grab a couple of crappy Chinese compact fluorescent to replace the crappy Chinese lights that have died in the master bedroom upstairs… I had a spare but that packed in as I was screwing it in (yes, they are THAT BAD – should have brought a load over from Tescos, what was I THINKING about). That, a little cement to fill in a couple of holes, a LARGE tub of white paint.. and I think a spell in the lake… you just can’t beat hot weather while up to your shoulders in cool water! And now to pack in for the day, beer sounds good. Builder is trying it on with electricity prices so I’m monitoring usage… more on that when I get some results.
