Re: Perseids

Lost count of the times I've sat out getting bitten and been lucky to see one shooting star. Every night we go in the pool and unusually we've not seen one so far this year.

Re: Easyjet

Yes I was looking forward to it. I was meeting with my friend from England and we'd rented an apartment in the city. Would still like to do it next year if we can. Return flights only 60€!

Re: Coronavirus

Not behind the paywall and the 'comments' are also worth a read. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2020/08/09/lockdown-supporters-cannot-bear-thought-sweden-has-got-right/ I think it's difficult to compare the UK with Sweden as Sweden has a population of London and a density of less than a tenth of ...

Re: House sale payment to Bank (Sabadell)

When we bought our house I think our gestoria had arranged for cheques to go to the various people involved, most of which went to the vendor's outstanding mortgage. I seem to remember when selling properties saying where we wanted the money to go, and I'm sure it went to a currency company directly...

Re: Easyjet

Is that a new route wicksey? I booked in September last year to go in June. They only fly there late March to end October. I use Vueling quite regularly for the Canaries but, unfortunately, Porto isn't one of their direct flights so I can't go this year with them. I think it's too risky to book any...

Re: Uk state pension been underpaid to women

Could you imagine the bill if they had to repay all of us for our lost years of pension Marios? Just read: " the government has estimated that a reversal of the pension changes in the Acts of Parliament of 1995 and 2011 would cost £215bn over the period 2010-11 to 2025-26." Can't see it happening .....

Re: NHS sharing your data

It knows I'm outside the UK, even though I use a proxy server. Just tried with a VPN and it does work but our NHS cards are so old they don't have the correct up to date format of numbers. Ours have 4 letters and 2 numbers rather than 10 digits. I expect our records are in some repository these days...

Re: Easyjet

Easyjet have cancelled all flights to Porto from Malaga until next April. I was due to fly there in June and was hoping to reschedule for October, before they stopped for the winter. I'm not booking anything more as they may decide not to do that route next year if there's not enough demand.

Re: Reconnecting Electric and Water in property

If there's no meter did it ever have a contract? I believe there's something called a builder's connection which I seem to remember various illegal properties around us used to use for years before Endesa caught up with them. In fact our very first house here in the 1990s had electricity for 2 years...

Re: T.I.E

I'm hoping that Gerry! Does the bank machine give you a receipt that you attach to the 790? I had a look at Sabadell's ATM and they seem to accept barcodes to pay a bill so I'll have a go next week. Not sure why the form asks for your IBAN if you then have to take it to the bank to pay.

Re: T.I.E

The address our bank has is the PO Box address. The 790 shows our name and NIE number .... I didn't know if address is that important for the payment (just trying to save my ink and paper :) )

Fyfin, if you don't have to by law then I think it's just up to individual choice. Obviously things may change in the future. I was trying to avoid going to my own bank as I am not prepared to get up extra early to queue outside .... I don't do mornings! Gerry's option of paying at the machine sound...

I also wondered what boundaries Peter meant. With all the tourists here and restaurants full, I don't see there's that much danger in playing bridge. We've been meeting friends in their homes and at restaurants for some time now, so no different to sitting at a table playing cards. I am slightly mor...

Yes that was exactly the same process for me Pamela. I never accepted the voucher and I cannot resubmit the claim, (unlike I did with easyJet which I've now received ok.) I've sent an email so I'll wait and see if anything happens!
