Re: Coronavirus

Interesting that you have written about ordering food in the UK olive. My SIL is staying with my 93 year old FIL who is recovering from cancer surgery. She dare not go out in case she brings home any germs but cannot get any food delivered. She asked me to look as she only has her phone with her whi...

Re: Coronavirus

Every industry wants a bailout now. Charities the latest. Feel sorry for the small genuine ones I sent the money I'm saving by not going out to two of the local animal charities. They must be struggling without their usual fundraising activities and with their shops being shut. There have been arti...

Re: Coronavirus

I have to say it's all very civilised here too and a pleasure to go out. Worse thing is not being able to have a walk, that's the only thing we are really pining for although we have a garden to potter around in. I think of all the overcrowded tourist spots that are having a rest, and it's certainly...

Re: Easyjet

I may have to take a voucher when the time comes and then hope that they are still in business when I want to rebook, or have to risk changing flights for later in the year. Does anyone know how it works with changing a flight? Does the full cost of your flight, including extras such as speedy booki...

Re: Easyjet

That link isn't very up to date. Latest offering on it is 13 March. Up until recently the cancellation and claim refund option was still there but this change of procedure has happened very recently. I can't put the ink to the Telegraph article on here as it's premium content that requires you to ha...

Re: Easyjet

I have read a lot of comments in the Telegraph on this subject. It seems that easyJet has made it almost impossible to claim a refund as no one can get through to them. The previous method of simply clicking on an option to cancel to obtain your refund has gone. These companies are not doing themsel...

Re: Coronavirus

We always have a shopping list on the go for Lidl and another one for Mercadona and alternate week on week. We usually only do one big shop but occasionally have to call into a different one, Dia or Aldi, to get odd things we cannot usually get from the others. I will only go to one supermarket on m...

Re: Coronavirus

I cannot get everything I want from the first supermarket I come to on the Costa so will have to go another km to Mercadona next week where I can get everything I need in one go. I cannot see how that should be a problem. I did hear something on the radio about not to keep going out daily for small ...

Re: Coronavirus

That's interesting Beach. I must say when it first started I did think that maybe it has been very much hyped up by TV/newspaper media and social media. However, when you now see the state of the hospitals and staff, I do think it is an epidemic that needs to be taken seriously. Maybe, overall, the ...

Re: Coronavirus

Call me sceptical but I do question China's figures, and the fact that there have been no new cases in a population of 1.4bn plus Spain has now had more deaths than them. The EWN reports that the 650.000 rapid testing kits that Spain has bought are being sent back due to only being 30% accurate .......

Re: Coronavirus

Did anyone notice the Chinese are closing their borders even for stranded own nationals?. I can see the same happening in Europe in a few weeks time. Not good news for those of us in exile from their country of habitual residence I saw on the TV news last night that parts of China are lifting the l...

Re: Spanish Postal Service

We didn't think of checking online. So just weekdays until 12:30. I don't suppose we have a lot awaiting us in our post box apart from the usual electricity bill!

Re: Spanish Postal Service

OH went to the PO the other day which usually shuts at 2:30 to find it had shut at 12:30. This is the one in Torrox pueblo. A card was posted to England but goodness know when that may arrive!

Re: Coronavirus

We went for our walk yesterday around our country lanes and could not believe people had actually driven here to do their allowed walk, never seen as many. I presume you are writing from the UK DA? I guess that's why even a walk is not allowed here as there would still be a lot of people going out ...

Re: Driving restrictions

A friend has two of their animals needing regular check ups/blood tests and he has been to the vets a few times since lockdown started. When he took both animals he had to wait in the car and they came and took in one at a time. He was at the vets yesterday (the Caleta one) so I would phone first to...

Re: Coronavirus

Whenever things get bad and tough the British crank up their amazing sense of humour. The worse things get the more their Stoicism and humour help them out. It must be millennia of cultural experience. Monty Python and Blackadder would be making us laugh despite the grim reality of any given situat...

Re: UK State Pension

Does it have to be pension? When we set up the Sabadell Expansion account we weren't getting pensions but just told we had to pay in 700 euros each month. It could be paid in with cash if we wanted. Looks like Marios has just posted the same!

Re: Guardia and the CV rules.

Now I finally have my new Spanish driving licence I would have thought that this would be acceptable as ID. It has my photo and NIE on it, much like my old residencia card that I still carry around although way out of date now. It was only when I was updating my driving licence details on the Hertz ...
