Re: Ants!!!!

That would be good for us! I don't like the idea of spray or powder on the worktops. Thanks for the tip, Unicorn - the ants are more a nuisance than a big problem but I'd like them gone.

Re: Sold the house in Andalucia. Here's how it went.

I'm very pleased for you, DA - glad it all went as well as could be expected, you forearmed yourself with all the info you could, which helped you get through what always seems to be a complicated process here - selling a house. I'm sure your post will be very useful to others wanting to sell. Very ...

Re: Hospital Comarcal - good? Or go Private?

My husband and I have both had our gallbladders out at Hospital Comarcal and the care was excellent. If you decide to go private, Dr Veeger at Centro Mar y Salud in El Morche can refer you to a very good dermatologist. Here is her website (she speaks perfect English) https://centromarysalud.com/

Re: Ants!!!!

That's not good, Wicksey :( We are very lucky that they are not in our food cupboards. I wonder why they aren't...... they are on the worktops and the kitchen floor, unless I keep them very clean. If I leave a crumb out, it gets dragged away quickly. Of course, I'm pleased they aren't in the cupboar...

You can adopt me if you want someone to leave your assets to, Wicksey? :D Oh, hang on - I'm quite a bit older than you so will no doubt go first lol.

Re: Ants!!!!

We co-exist with them - they don't really bother us. Yes, I have to keep work surfaces scrupulously clean otherwise I get hoards but otherwise, they don't bother us. There are a few on the floors in most of the rooms.... should I try to get rid of them? They disappear once the summer is over.

Re: Cooperative living for older people

Cooperative living appeals to me, too, Dave. The older I get, the more I worry about the future. I might be like my dad and stay fit and active when I'm 90..... or I might need some help.

The 840 euros a year to become a member is out of our reach. Interesting idea though, I do have a look at your website from time to time. .

Re: Looking for a holiday home around Competa, Sedella and Salares

I'm sure everyone thinks the village they live in is The Best but I would urge you to consider Canillas de Aceituno. Far fewer expats in the actual little town, which gives it a much more Spanish feel than Competa. There are plenty in the campo of diferent nationalities though and we have regular ge...

Re: Getting Residency

Thank you Sid - and Free at Last, I'm pleased you've had no problems but I think we'll just stay as we are, I'm reassured by Sid's comments.

Happy Christmas to all the members of A.Com xx

Re: Getting Residency

We've been resident for over 5 years and because of Brexit have been thinking of going to the police station again in Torre del Mar to make our status permanent. We had a very helpful official at the police station back in 2013 and she got round our financial position by merely asking us to get a co...

Re: Pensions

Katy, :thumbup: Sid, I wouldn't trust the Tories as far as I could throw them and they would like to take this protection down to a double lock, removing the 2.5%. For the time being, even after Brexit, it seems we are safe, though. I've signed the petition, as it is very unfair to pensioners in Can...

Re: Itchy Feet..

I have the same thoughts, Gordon! My choices are your 1) and 4) though. Plenty of the things you've written could apply to me, as well. When we moved here, over 6 years ago, the 'novelty' was exhilarating and most of the time (apart from the scary bureaucratic stuff) we absolutely loved it. We still...
