Hang on there tiger :lol:

I have already booked my ferry crossing with my motor but if I could get a cheap legal UK registered van I would change my booking and sell the jeep here in Spain.

Is it Spanish or English plated?

If English does it have any MOT left on it?

I have hardly seen any spiders here, used to get loads in the house when living in the UK, I don't recall ever having a spider in this house yet, the snakes probably eat them all :wink:

I was told by someone else that it looked like a baby viper, it was thin but very long.

Yep, I was aware, I contacted them a few days ago and they assure me that my crossing on the 23rd February will go ahead as planned (no doubt it won't though!)

I phoned them up in the end and today I got my 10 Euro Eroski voucher, does anyone know if I can use this at the Eroski Petrol Station?

I hope so as I am not planning on doing another grocery shop before I leave for UK.

Can anyone identify mine? - It was on our terrace last summer, our terrace door was open and it was about to enter our house until our neighbours spotted it and called us which scared it.

I used http://www.moneybookers.com in the end, it cost me 12 Euros to transfer the 4,000 Euros from Unicaja to Moneybookers Valencia (trust Unicaja to get in on the act again :twisted: ) Money Bookers then charged 3.50 Euros commission (fixed amount regardless of amount of money transferred).

Also the Torre del Mar market on a Thursday is equally as good as the Nerja one (mostly the same stalls).

I too have used that branch of Merino on El Ingenio, mine was also a puncture, I was all set to pay out for a new tyre also but they repaired it instead for around 8 Euros.

Was very good service.

You can pick up a catalogue at any Viva Estates office (cost 2€)
Bargain :roll:

I saw an advert in one of the Free papers saying "Argos Books for 2 Euros" had to laugh, although the postage costs of one of those huge things would be a lot :lol:

Plumber, Torre del Mar area?

Can anyone recommend a plumber (preferably English speaking) for the Torre del Mar area please?

On an apartment I have a part share in there is a pressure valve that's gone on the water heater causing it to drip a bit.

It's not a big job but I can't do it!

Hmmm, I will have to phone them up and sort it I think.

It's clearly a fault with their site and not a user error though so very frustrating after I have translated all the other questions correctly :(

Anyone else have one? I have had mine since moving to Spain and have now finally got enough points to claim a 10 Euro Eroski voucher, but when I register online I get to the last section of the registration process to be told my card number is invalid, which it's not as I have checked it several tim...
