Thanks Beach :D

No thanks, certainly dont fancy another trip to Malaga.

Any idea what the Gestor will need to do it? - Paperwork?
Cars are with me in France but staying on Spanish plates as we're commuting between the 2 houses.

Thanks again

They are the most comfortable footwear on the market! - Beat flip flops hands down, they are brilliant on the beach too as the sand just falls out of the holes in the sides! I love my Crocs :lol: As for accessories - WHY anyone want to add bells & dangles to their shoes baffles me. They are not ...

WOW, thanks everyone, I didnt expect so many responses! Hard sand is usually caused by constantly high pH and liquid flocculant being allowed to get into the sand filter. You can tell if this is the problem because the dust you Hoover up from the bottom of the pool comes straight back in through the...
