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.

The Post Works!!!

LED FloodsThis morning, my floodlights  turned up from Singapore, just 1.5 weeks after being shipped. Our friendly female post-lady turned up mid-morning and strangely needed to see my passport… I’m sure that’ll not last long when she gets to know us.

The floods are infra-red remote controlled and not only manage the usual range of colours and various sequencing options – but unlike many they also manage decent shades of yellow and white! They look properly waterproofed and they are BRIGHT but of course I can’t do anything in daylight – so watch out for updates this evening!

To add to the morning’s success I figured out why my Internet cameras were not working since the modem upgrade – so they’re now working a treat.

Neighbour, Dave, Tom and I have made our first moves towards fixing the road at the top – we’ve smashed up the raised area and filled with stones then sand – the next step is to put a layer of concrete on the top but even now the road is a lot smoother (probably would not survive a downpour at this point).

At lunchtime, Maureen and I went off to the garage in Huescar to pick up our newly repaired Meganne – and I have to say the cost was lower than we expected… the car is working a treat so now for a short while we have two!

We went off from there to the main park in Huescar for lunch – there’s a little cafe in the middle of it and in an area around the front of the cafe they have a watering system giving off a very fine mist – absolutely marvellous! We had hamburgeresa completa – which in this case meant everything but the kitchen sink – well recommended and a great location.

From there a trip to Huescar pool – absolutely lovely.
