32 year old female looking for work

Hi, I’m Alison. I am 32 years old and have just recently moved to Competa.

I am on a desperate search for work.

I thought I would put an advert on here, to see if anyone knows of anyone or anywhere looking to employ someone.

I can do kitchen work (cook, wash dishes, assist the chef)

Cleaning, dog walking, Ironing, babysitting

I have plenty of bar work experience and waitressing

I will do anything from bar work/waitressing to cleaning and dish washing.

I have worked in plenty of busy restaurants and bars.

If anyone can help please email me

alisonkel32 at gmail dot com

Thank you



Thanks – Just to say thank you publicly to all those who contacted me

about a flatbed scanner and car importation.

Invaluable! Nigel.

Services Available- Car Detailing/Valeting


I have been back in the UK for the past two months and am now back in Spain, apologies to those of you who have been trying to get your cars booked in for my specialised service. I am now taking bookings for May as I am already fully booked for April. For those of you not acquainted with what I do, I turn very tired cars into sparkling vehicles to be proud of. I can often bring sun faded paint back to a high lustre and also apply protective coatings which prevent/slow down the fading process. I also carry out paint correction to blemishes scratches and small dents etc, I get your paint colour matched to factory spec and then apply it to your vehicle in a number of methods depending on the defect, from airbrushing to full panel spray. I use PH neutral products which all enhance the finish of your vehicle without stripping off any protective barriers. I only use the best products on the market many of which are imported from America. I have bought and own the very best tools in the industry and have invested €000’s to enhance and preserve the interiors and exteriors of any vehicle. I can re colour faded bumpers and trim and polish faded headlights, I machine polish cars to bring the paintwork back to its former glory. I can also do general car valeting, to a very high standard, which wont cost you a fortune. The entire car is cleaned including engine bay, door shuts, air vents (with small detailing brushes etc) the car will arrive back to you spotless, with a full protective coat of wax. So if you have an old car which runs well but looks a little scabby in places then I am the man for you. Equally I work on many high end supercars.

I tell all my customers the same, “If for some reason, you are not happy with the work I have carried out, I will continue until you are happy or you don’t pay me.” I have never had an unhappy customer yet and have received many positive and encouraging recommendations here in the land of Digame. If you would like a free no obligation quote, I am currently in the process of getting my phone reconnected (disconnected whilst in the Uk) so the best way to get hold of me short term is via email :-    ukmobility @ iCloud .com (no spaces these have been inserted here to avoided spam emails). In a few days I will be available on 618346098.

If you would like to see the standard of my work, you can view a few vehicles I have used a bit of my magic on, on my Facebook page, Car Clean Malaga, where you can also see a few recommendations.

Look forward to giving some love to your cars. Warren

Recommendation- Buddha House Torrox Costa

Easy the best Indian food in the area just like we get in UK and better than some.
I had Chicken Tikka Karahi with mushroom rice and asked for it to be Madras strength, very tasty indeed, I asked for an extra Madras sauce so I could taste that too it was more spicy but really tasty, lots of flavours. There were 8 of us on this occasion and we all had different dishes and we all said how good the food is.  We travelled half an hour to try the Budhha House and it was well worth it. A must visit and great food.

Recommendation for Las Orqudeas at Los Romanes

I should like to recommend the hotel Las Orqudeas at Los Romanes  for celebrating or just having a drink while admiring the view.
We stayed to celebrate our Golden wedding and found the owners and staff most friendly and helpful.
The following morning even other guests helped my wife load me,my wheelchair and oxygen equipment into our car.
Everyone helped make our important day perfect.
