Re: Shopping

I wonder who will be willing to buy clothes from a rail that may have had many handlers and been tried on ? I have not given it much thought but will need to buy clothes soon esp. if I cannot go back to UK where I normally spend the summer and where my light dresses and cropped trousers are :-(

Re: Flying

I am booked on an internal flight Sevilla to Barcelona for a concert at the end of June. No way the concert will go ahead as the group are Italian and its a big venue. It has not been cancelled officially as yet. The airline has already offered vouchers but flight is not cancelled. I am not sure I w...

Re: changing details in dog microchip

Chip details cannot be changed. I think I paid 18 euros to have the new owners details registered at the local vets.

Re: Pool Solar Cover

Many moons ago my late husband bought one from Deep Blue Pools, Alhaurin el Grande. It was Australian, came with a 10 year guarantee. I have no recollection of the price. It was the type with a roller shown on their home page.

Great time to say you are going on strike as more pressure to settle. Most likely strike cancelled pre the date as they are in talks.

Re: Burning Eucalyptus

Many years ago when I had my wood burner it was recommended if you wanted to burn eucalyptus then first make sure your chimney is clean and complete. Season the logs for a minimum of 2 years then hope ! Basically our log man was not in favour of it at all.
