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.

Smelly Little Kittens and some Holiday Time

Summer wouldn’t be summer without Maureen’s maternal instincts appearing… and so, we’re fostering a brace of kittens – four to be exact – and we have them for another couple of weeks before they head off to new homes in Madrid (and we head off for a short trip to the coast).

We’re on a roll and have been since the weather started to pick up – late March we headed up to Segovia in Northern spain for a few days to check out (amongst other things) the Aqueduct and have a good nose around the city. I’m not sure ANYONE’s photos really do this massive feat of Roman engineering justice. It’s all in one piece even today.

Once we were done in Segovia we headed back to Galera for a few days before heading off up to Guardamar to visit friends. Very nice weather and some great food – not to mention the excellent company of our friends Sarah and Rolly.


On our return, Maureen decided we just MUST look after some kittens for a while. I’d forgotten just how much attention kittens need.

And that’s where we are right now, sitting at home looking after kittens!
