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.

If you're familiar with what3words, we live at dossier.bath.sawn

What a Weekend

What a weekend… with the weather back in full glorious sunshine, we took off for BAZA.  Down to one Spanish credit card, as mine is out of date, we headed off to the bank to get some cash. Well, the bank machine ate Maureen’s card, so that put the kybosh on some things for the weekend… however we managed and then went off to get some paint etc. The paint was a write-off – the shop didn’t like Maureen’s UK cards (they’re not a very trusting lot) and so despite the bargain price of 17 euros for 13 litres of Pinctura Plastica, we came away empty handed. 

BazaI got my monitor wall bracket and my new Spanish SIM for the mobile phone… 12 euros gives you the SIM and 6 euros of credit. You have to use the phone and update the credit once every 6 months which isn’t bad….certainly cheaper than paying 10 euros a month for a Spanish VOIP line we don’t use! I put the TV bracket on the wall after several unsuccessful attempts and lots of plastering! Anyway, we ended up at a new (for us) bar just outside of Huescar – nothing to write home about – and then a cave restaurant which WOULD have been great had it not been full of noisy kids… but we had a nice night anyway.

Maureen’s been staining fences today and I’ve been trying to figure out how the comms dish works (finally got talking to it’s built in web server) as well as repairing the bathroom (a slight crack in the paint was hiding a 12” square hole in the wall, now full of cement) and generally having a nice wasted day.

Yesterday after upgrading the Fed’s new vBulletin site I realised that part of it wasn’t working so I’ve been sending messaged back and forth to their designers today to sort it out…. nice that they work on weekends.

And now – I think a beer…
