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.

Life back in Blighty

We thought it was cold in Spain – not half as cold as it was when we got back to the UK – we’re talking minus several degrees C. Shortly after coming back home to the UK I went off on business to London and temperatures hit minus 11 degrees C – not pleasant – meanwhile the forecast for Galera says 1 or 2 degrees there, the webcam says it’s a lovely sunny day!

Peter ScargillI’m trying out Microsoft Live writer to do this blog entry, I usually use ScribeFire in Firefox.  Of course what started off as a 5-minute install has now evolved into a full get-all-the-plugins affair – I’ve been installing for the last 30 minutes!

We’re giving it a miss now until mid-February – hopefully things will have warmed up a little by then. The myth of caves staying the same temperature throughout the year is one I think that’s put out by lying salespeople. It was FREEZING this Christmas until we put the wood fire on for 3 days solid! Indeed we had it running so high that all the surrounding walls were warm by the time we left! The only problem with all of this is the cost… wood isn’t cheap and so we spent the best part of £70 heating the place up for a week.
