What’s this about?
This is the Spanish website for Peter and Maureen Scargill. When in Spain we live in Galera in Andalusia (for clarify 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 something like 9 years or more and now we're spending a lot more time here.

If you're familiar with what3words (if you're not now you soon will be) we live at dossier.bath.sawn

A Day in the mountains

tmpC0After spending our first evening over here trying to heat the place up (in February it gets cold at night – but warm during the day – today it’s been 16 degrees and clear blue skies….) we started the morning surveying the winter damage to paintwork – at first sight, pretty bad… but then I’m a dab hand with a paintbrush and having first put on a coat of PVC to stick everything together, I think you’ll see the place is pretty much back to new apart from the stone you see above which has some pretty bad cracking in it – nothing a good builder can’t put right.

We’re so used to cold weather we could not resist sitting out in the sun, so apart from a spot of painting and a short walk, we’ve not done much today..  and now the bad news… the Curry Cave is CLOSED – not just for Christmas but FOREVER…. Maureen rang them up and that’s all she could get out of them!!

Tonight we’ll no doubt trip down to the local village, our new next door neighbours are in and enjoying the sun – and all’s well.

    hi moved in next door last Thursday after waiting 4 months for work to be finished only to find out they did not start till we arrived .
    I said if we did not move in by Thursday we would go home till it was finished and not pay any money
    Result was everything done by Thursday 11 am
    WE HAD ELECTRIC HEATING BUT TEMP NEVER WENT ABOVE 10C
    WOOD BURNER WAS RUBBISH
    we will find a proper one for next Xmas
    a big one that you can cook on like my in-laws
    kind regards and keep us smiling
