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.

Midweek Blues

Peter Scargill - sun-worshippingWell, not exactly blues… hard to be blue at 33c (again) – our friends helping us sort the car just rang, "waiting for a part" -  how familiar is that! So the plan to go to the Huescar market, pay the rates, get some plants and generally shop went clean gone out of the window. Another day without a car…. this is starting to get serious.

Had a trip down to Galera for the market yesterday morning (market is nothing to write home about but the guy was out selling Churos and we had a nice Cafe con Leche at the usual cafe).

My legs are kind of getting used to the idea of walking and surprisingly my hopefully temporary foot issue does not seem to be getting any worse (tendon damage). So the market trip was nice though it’s just a LITTLE market. In the afternoon did my share of emails now everyone is back from the twin bank holiday, I’m working on a project (i2c tester) and simply enjoying the peace and quiet. I’ve ordered a couple of combined humidity/temperature sensors so that when I’m back in the UK I can stop relying on the notoriously wrong weather forecasts – and instead send the info direct from the cave to my phone (well, that’s the idea). Maureen is watching movies on Netflix.

BBQ last night with what little we’ve left in the fridge and now we’re down to scraps… today we’re enjoying the sun and I’m doing some marketing for Hollyberry Cottage as well as getting shot of BT. I like the use of BT Openzone but their broadband limits and charges are just too much.

I can see a trip to the pub coming on.
