went snorkelling at the weekend and saw about 5 jellyfish, just the small purple or brown ones - seemed fairly normal...wasn't a whole load of them.

Yaaaay! Good news! Maybe we should have a Good News thread, that would be nice, I do like Andalucia.com but the negativity gets a bit wearing at times.

Thanks for that post, Oliveview01 :thumbup:

Not good news but I would have thought the Jelly-fish story (and it was linked to the heat) would have been useful to anyone in andalucía, I would have been grateful if I had been planning a day on the beach today. This forum is getting like don't mention the war :mrgreen:

You could start a good news thread...we have had them before. However, is posters personal good news anything to do with andalucía. Some posters may be accused of boasting :silent: As one poster said in a PM. he wanted to ask about a problem with his car but didn't want the flak from saying what car he had!

I remember a similar influx of jellyfish a few years ago - my youngest grandson who was 8 or 9 at the time had a whale of a time collecting them in little buckets. He was covered in stings but that didn't put him off lol. They were small, see through ones as I recall. If he was here now, no doubt he'd be begging to go to beach, he's a strange young chap lol.

But I don't like them, so would have appreciated the info, Katy.

Do you miss Spain? You clearly keep up with what's going on over here, you know a lot more than I do :)

I miss a lot of things, especially as it was some years ago. Popping back a couple of days a week without travelling would be ideal...well in summer and not July/August. :D Still in touch with a few friends over there by skype and I read the málaga paper most days.

I'm in Ireland experiencing the coldest July I've ever known. Apart from the weather, It's absolutely stunningly beautiful here but I could do with some sun

That's just what was forecast - so what's so surprising.

By the way, in Spain they don't do Fahrenheit - that's just reserved for the Daily Mail when it gets hot in the UK.

Either way it is just after midnight and it is 31.6C Thank goodness for aircon.
I can remember nights like this when we came here 10 years ago, we would go and have a midnight soak in the pool but the pool was so warm it didn't really cool us down, the mosquitos bit my head and shoulders and I still didn't sleep well. Tonight is no`problem as long as the aircon is working and the electricity keeps flowing. We do have a generator that could be used if it didn't, but I wouldn't subject my neighbor's to that (unless they started it first). :angel:
