Permanent home needed for Truka
Tukka dog
Dog abandoned in the campo 6 months ago. I took her in on a temporary basis for someone who intended having her but unfortunately I was let down. Truka is 2/3 years old, I have had her spayed and vaccinated. She is very good natured, well mannered, gentle and intelligent. She gets on very well with my four dogs and five cats. Unfortunately I am unable to keep her due to personal circumstances.

Puppy Litter – Update

Wonderful people are coming forward to start helping these puppies that I posted on Digame earlier.   They are now about 3-4 weeks and we will need new homes.  The Spanish owner has agreed to keep them for the moment – I was so afraid they would ‘disappear’ …….

I have added to the first film so you can now see more of the puppies at the end

Puppy Rescue 3

Proof of Life

My wife was once asked for this  and her pension frozen in the meantime,

In order to resolve this,  we contacted the British Embassy in Malaga .

They required us to go in with passport and they then sent off an email to the Pension People in the UK that she was still alive –  with proof.

Very straightforward if lengthy affair

The Embassy phone number is  – 952359211


Services Needed – Sewing Machine Repair

Does anyone know of where I can get my sewing machine repaired.

Services Available –  Rentals & AirCon etc

All owners of holiday rentals have to register their  property with the Town Hall. All owners have to have air conditioning in bedrooms and living areas, they all so have to have heating through the winter months. If you do not comply with the new law the fines are Hugh. If you want advice about air conditioning please contact Keith at cooltecservices.com or 951242183



Response – Life Certificate

 I have a life certificate sent to me yearly from the council I worked for. They say as they know I live abroad it is necessary.  If I changed my address to a UK one apparently it would be random.
Anyway I take it to my local Spanish bank and the manager signs it free of charge. I then return it to the pensions dept it came from.



Recommendation Needed –Best Place to Buy Large Carpets

Can anyone recommend where to go to buy good large sized carpets for living rooms.

Recommendation – Bouquet of Flowers – Furniture Restoration.

bouquet02We have just had a number of pieces of old dark wood and pine furniture restored and lightened by Brea in Calle Carabeo, Nerja, ( opposite No 34 ).

Vicky who owns the shop speaks very good English, and her husband, Manolo, is an absolute magician with wood.

They give you a fixed price, will collect large pieces, and return them to you fully restored in whatever finish you want.

Steve, Competa.



Recommendation Needed– Notario/Gestor & Rental Options

I need to get some documents notarised  in the next week or two and am looking for  someone to do the job, preferably in Nerja or close by. I’m also mulling a new long-term rental,–with an option to buy–and would very much appreciate advice on someone to help me with this.

Please reply through Digamextra, but I can be reached at macnmum @ gmail . com if you wish to pass something on more privately.

Thank you,




Recommendation – Meson Aljama Restaurant

Photos must be in JPG or JPEG Format

Please do not send ads for property / real estate.

All formatting, pretty colours, bold, underlining, strange fonts etc are automatically removed.

Please – Don’t use all Block CAPITALS LIKE THIS or I may have to send it back for you to put into normal case (This is the way people normally write, with capital letters where appropriate – such as “I” and place names “Malaga”, makers’ names such as “Electrolux”,

days of the week “Monday”

You must include contact details, either an email address or a telephone number in the text. If you don’t I cannot publish it. Often I cannot “extract “your email address from the email, so repeat it please.

Please don’t send PDFs or Word documents.

Your email address must be quoted in this forrmat…I insert spaces within the address so that nasty software can’t steal their address for spam purposes – e,g, my address is correctly   janekirkspain@gmail,com

if it were a Contributor’s address I’d insert spaces thus –

janekirkspain @ gmail,com.

So all you do is remove those spaces before contacting a contributor. 

Rules for Blog

The rules for Blogs have changed and it now means that I could face a fine if I publish any negative reviews of any person or company – even though it may be true or half true. Jane
