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.

If you're familiar with what3words, we live at dossier.bath.sawn

A relaxing day in the mountains

Snow-capped mountains in Spain: Spent the day doing repairs and a spot of painting and then going for a walk across the top of our mountain. It’s been a lovely day considering it’s the end of December and there has not been a cloud in the sky. In the photo on the left you can just see snow on one of the mountaintops in the distance – if you click on the photo it should take you to the FLICKR original.

Hello Vera – planting plants in the rocks: Maureen’s been experimenting with planting aloe vera in the ground – which is a kind of white clay… only time will tell if this is a success.  If this weather keeps up, tomorrow I may well open up the jacussi with a view to replacing the electrical panel and pump, however the forcast for today wasn’t that good (though totally wrong) and so I’m not counting on it.

More caves in Spain: Over on the left is a cave as yet unsold which is lovely – it might not be obvious but it’s huge, there is enough room up front to park 2 or 3 cars but the road is currently unfinished (rumour has it the builder put the road in without permission) and so it could be some time before this is on sale. You can walk up the side of the house and around the back and if you walk over the hill behind it there is a “back entrance” on the other side of the hill with a rather large bathroom therein. It’s 4pm here in Galera, I’ve been filling in spare time reading my new search engine marketing book and putting some notes together (how sad is that) but now I think a spot of TV. May as well enjoy it while I can – next week we’re back to the land of the wet and a busy schedule.
