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.

A Pleasant Surprise

Galera WineA pleasant surprise this evening – we were sitting watching David Attenborough “Life on Earth” – probably one of the best TV programs ever… and we had a knock on the door from our Spanish neighbours from over the hill.

Cute creatureCompletely unexpected, they brought us a case of wine from GALERA! As you can see from the photo, there’s white, rose and red wine. What a pleasant surprise and a really nice thing to do! Quite made my day!

So all in all not a bad day, sorted the broadband out (cable replacement), discovered where to get cement for fixing pavements – really cheap (under £2 a sizeable bag) and soon we’re to the village for some tapas… there have been a few clouds today but other than that it’s been generally sunny, maybe 34 degrees… just the job. I’m all ready for my meeting tomorrow, the most complex videoconference I’ve done to date….  fingers crossed…

tmp36FETPeter Scargillhe little fellow you see on the right was at our doorstep yesterday, if I’d included his tail the photo would be well over twice as long – absolutely massive!   I’m hoping no-one is going to tell me they’re poisonous as they really are cute! The nasty on the LEFT however, I’m quite sure if I was smaller and he was bigger… he’d EAT me.
