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.

Hot Tub Cover

Hot Tub CoverI think I can honestly say that even the Chinese could not beat this – today we went to the hardware store in Baza to get a gazebo to cover the hot tub so as to keep the wasps out… I’ve never seen anything more badly designed – the holes in the metal rods were so big that when you tightened the bolts, just after they started to deform the extremely thin metal tubing, the heads disappeared inside!

grapesTomorrow I’m off to buy a bunch of oversize washers to put 2 on each bolt and nut set to do the job properly!!

But for tonight – that’s it – giving up – an early night and so hopefully an early start. We need to get this done, get the top on – get the LED lighting in – and get in the TUB!! It’s hot out there!

Just fitted an Android HDMI box to the TV to convert the TV here into a smart device – only to discover we’ve not brought a single mouse from the UK!!!! Nor keyboard…… all working – however the first attempt did end up with a loud bang as a pitifully under-powered Chinese USB power supply exploded thankfully NOT taking the TV etc with it…

On the upside, the first grapevine is coming along just nicely…
