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.

El Weekend

Cafe at HuescarOur last full day for this short break then it’s back to the grind for a while, but not long before we’re back here again for the summer hols. Meanwhile today, armed (finally) with a working car we went off to Huescar for some goods and "churos and coffee" – rapidly becoming an essential part of visiting Huescar.

We go to the little corner cafe you see here near the square. We also managed to get some round staples so next time I’ve some wiring to fasten up, we’re all set….  at lunchtime we returned to Galera and I fitted the new radio to the car, not without issues as the aerial socket is ever so slightly different to the car fittings as you can see in the photo below. Just found an "iso to din" adaptor on Ebay for the aerial so that’s on it’s way.

Mismatch between aerial plug and socketAs that means no Spanish FM radio for now (which we don’t understand anyway), that’s not too big a deal, the radio has Bluetooth (tested, working), auxiliary input, USB input (tested, working) and SD memory input  so all I have to do it kit out a 16 gig SD with all of our music and Spanish lessons and we’re all set. That’ll be ready for the summer.

Bought a new storage cabinet which I’ve just spent part of the afternoon filling up with electrical rubbish and tonight we plan to stay in and enjoy a glass or two of wine and take in the view.

Next week I’ve a ton of meetings lined up in London and elsewhere but first I’m putting my trusty oscilloscope on Ebay as I’ve spotted a modern pocket version which will be ideal for the summer (I’m sure if I brought a proper scope over on the plane, they’d think it was a terrorist device and not let me on the plane. I was stopped on the North/Southern Ireland border once with the same kit and they were convinced I was up to no good).

Hide My AssMaking the best of the REALLY nice weather as I’m let to believe that (surprise surprise) the weather back in the UK is rubbish – on the other hand I’ve lots of Chinese goodies waiting for me back home not to mention our kitties.

Incidentally, while we were over here, obviously the BBC i-Player doesn’t really like one being overseas neither does Netflix but we were fine thanks to the continued reliability of Hide-My-Ass.
