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 very pleasant evening in Galera

Pergola at BedrockWe never did make it to the pool! After a good start – i.e. morning coffee down in the village, I spent most of the day indoors tackling the work email mountain and trying to solve a pesky broadband issue (the router dies occasionally for no good reason – my current guess is heat and sadly I don’t have a spare router to compare with). Early evening I had the silicon sealant out to make sure my latest electrical additions outside don’t give up at the first sight of rain (I know, don’t be daft) and then last night Maureen, Alison and I went down to the Galera Hotel wherein I was tackled for advice on tablets from one of the guys and then we all went off to La Posa.

FINALLY I got to grips with the WIFI passwords at both locations (not that it made too much difference as La Posa’s WIFI is down at the moment – maybe they have the same bug I have here).

As I’d anticipated I was approached by a gentleman who’d given me grief about the blog a couple of nights earlier – of course it had been the demon drink for which he gracefully apologised and we ended the night amicably. Thanks incidentally to everyone who was supportive at the time – really appreciated.

And so the night ended as it started – we all had a nice time – it’s comforting to know that temperatures back in the UK are back to abysmal summer norms. Today I’m up in the early hours for no reason. I can see a walk to the village coming on when the sun comes up and the plan is to go to the lake at some point before helping out a friend with Windows 7 issues this afternoon. Our neighbours are arriving today which will be nice and I’m waiting for a slight drop in the temperature to go drop a bag of cement in the increasingly large crack in the road up at the top of the hill!  Never thought I’d end up doing road maintenance! I also need to find something to use as a bracket for the new LED lighting I bought in San Javier.. I’m amazed just how much light the new 5w LEDs put out.
