Re: Few questions about moving to spain.

Why does the expression...

"From the frying pan into the fire" come to mind !

Just lie in a dark room, until the feeling goes away.

Re: Luggage wrap - experiences?

Can't get my head around why anyone would bother doing this.

Yes, have noticed this "service" at Seville airport.

But then again, that may be just me !

Wow..

1.22 as I write. Seems we will be in some kind of Limbo until the "in" vote wins.

Re: Banks in Spain who do not charge for Caxton currency at

As at last November, la caixa were not charging, unless it has now changed of course. I have been using a Caxton card at la caixa for a number of years without any charges.

Brexit would be the best thing that happened to the UK in ages.

Alas, it will not happen.

Re: What is happening to the £

Wow !

Has dropped below 1.25 ( tiny bit tonight ).

With EU interest rates being cut to shreds, should be a bounce now. But who knows in these markets.
We live in interesting times !

Re: Lasagna

Thanks folks ! The recipe sounds interesting. I would not add carrots normally, but the glass of red wine sounds interesting. May even go mad and add some chorizo !. Getting back to the lasagna sheets. I do know my son boils them for a few minutes. I tried it and had great trouble separating them. G...

Lasagna

After having a terrific lasagna ( I made it of course ) this evening, my wife was wondering if you can readily get the "sauces" in Spain. I do know you can make the white sauce yourself, and could use a can of tomatoes as a red sauce. You can also of course take the lasagna sheets out in a suitcase....

Re: What effect on us if GB leaves the EU?

I reckon, you would be getting less Euros for your £.

Somewhere in the region of 1.10, I reckon.

Re: currency card

I have used a Caxton one for years.

Outside of getting the card in the post, I do not think I have had anything in the post from them since.

Re: What is happening to the £

Being honest, no one knows. In my humble opinion however, 1.25 is as low as I would hope it would go. As I am sitting on some Euros, I would not buy at 1.25, hoping when sense prevails, the rate will climb. So, now is as good a time as any to buy £ against euros. I stand to be corrected however. any...

What is happening to the £

Below the 1.25 mark today. A few months ago I got 1.40.

I know that UK interest rates are not going up anytime soon, but have things improved that much in Euroland ?

Buses Malaga / Nerja

In September, I would like to spend a couple of days in Nerja on route to somewhere else. The flight I am looking at, gets into Malaga about quarter past four in the afternoon. I hope to get a bus to Nerja, which I believe goes from the bus station, as opposed from the airport. My question : Would I...

Reminds me of the story of the rich Irish American who spent $1 million investigating his family tree..

Re: British Gas merger

Just a thought... You can transfer shares from an employee share scheme to an Cash and Shares ISA. Also of course, she could transfer some to you to sell, so you could take advantage of whatever the limit is now to sell without incurring tax. This is the type of question "Moneywise" magazine would k...
