Re: ?Mariacristina?

I don't post here very much these days but like many of you, I feel very fond of the members here who have helped me so much over the years. I like to pop in and see what you're doing :) Mariacristina has become a very good friend and one of these days we might even meet! She's a lovely person.

Re: Changing to Spanish driving licence

It was very quick for my OH, via a gestor, a matter of weeks but much longer for me, via the same gestor. About 9 months, I think, from memory. The gestor blamed dvlc and also a backlog at trafico but I got the licence eventually. It wasn't expensive and did indeed avoid going backwards and forwards...

Re: Cádiz — a personal guide

Sounds absolutely lovely! Makes me realise we haven't really been out and about much since we moved here 7 years ago! The places we have visited, Seville, Granada, Cordoba and one or two other smaller places were all before we actually lived here. (We have been back with visitors to places not too f...

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...

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.

Re: Cooperative living for older people

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...

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.

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...
