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.

Posts Tagged ‘The summer of sun continues’

A somewhat lazy week so far

Arrived late Sunday, bought some cement Monday to fix potholes. Yesterday we headed off to Baza and beyond so Maureen could get her share of plants and a new olive tree, calling in at the Chinese junk store in town for a new sunshade for the beach and a nice sandwich at Sevillanos (opposite Lidl and one street behind the main street) before heading off home to do a spot of maintenance painting and decorating.

Sevillanos in Baza

Sat next to 3 young women who we guessed were not academics as their entire conversation was based on discussing how much alcohol they’d sunk, punctuated with the odd “and I was like, wow”.

Picked up a new test meter as the old one had succumbed to software rot and refused to display anything other than 1.1volts regardless. I’m testing some solar cells and power units I brought over (a super capacitor and a lithium button cell) to see how well they charge under Spanish sunshine! Also picked up some material to improve the pergola (sun blasts in the side in the mornings).

Huescar market tomorrow – no doubt we’ll bump into friends.

So much to do, so little energy…
