Re: I have to ask!

Thank you all for the emotional blackmail! :) However, I already have another aged dog (16 years old) and they don´t get on at all. So while she is still around I can not have another.

Have you tried the vets in Gib? They seem quite successful at rehoming dogs.

Re: I have to ask!

I think I have this puppy´s brother!! We got him from the animal refuge in La Linea so maybe she could be taken there. If she is related to our dog I am sure someone would take her. Ours has a fantastic nature and we love him to bits. If it wasn´t for the fact that my husband would have a fit I woul...

Initially Wemploy said they had loads of jobs for my husband at fantastic salaries but they never came up with any interviews. A few people since have told him that they aren´t very good. However, this is at senior level postings, perhaps they are better for more general employment.

My husband recently got a job here in Gib through Corporate Resources Ltd (00350 52474). They were far better than the other local agencies he used.

Good luck!

JH. Just in case you are interested I know of a language school for sale in Granada. I looked at it for myself to buy but don't have time at the moment. If you are interested I can give you details.

I have translated for Brits who have had various operations here in Granada, ie hip replacements, prosthetic knee joints, etc and they have all had very good treatment.

My daughter also had an emergency operation on a broken femur and I have nothing but praise for her treatment throughout.

When we arrived here three years ago I too thought that putting my children (5 and 3 then) in a local Spanish school was the best option so they went to the village school which had only 30 pupils in total. Within a matter of months there were 10 English children at the school so my children spent a...

My children aged 6 and 8 go to a bilingual school in the north of Granada called Granada college in el pantano de cubillas. This is private (about 4000 euros per year each) but well worth it. Half the lessons are in English and half in Spanish, with native speakers for both. Currently there are abou...

The nice man who drove me and my family down the mountain when the cable car broke down (total power failure 5 mins after we had stepped off the cable car - I didn't dare ask what would have happened if we had been in mid journey :shock: !!) said that the new cable car would be ready by 2008.

I wouldn't hold out much hope of getting Superkingsize duvets over here, I can't even find any covers! Dunnes used to sell the covers (don't know about actual duvets) but on recent visits they have had nothing. I think your best bet would be Corte Ingles, but if they do have them it would probably s...

Costachick is of course talking about the Malaga area. You might find the Granada area to be a slightly different story, unless you are in Granada itself. Our village school runs from 9 til 2 but has no extra curricular activities, no holiday facilities, no sports facilities in school time in fact i...

Have you bought any SuperKingsize bedding here? The only place I know is Dunnes but I went yesterday and they only had one set in a really boring design.

Have you tried Toys R Us? They definitely have the bigger ones and they have a brochure of outdoor play and leisure equipment.

I seem to remember that Carrefour stocked mini trampolines sometime last year. Perhaps they will have them again.

Conforama sofabeds are also pretty horrendous (in my opinion).

I ordered a couple cheap sofas from there two weeks ago and my delivery date is on or around the 13th April, so delivery is not quick either. It also cost a fortune to have it delivered.
