Conversation Exchange 

Hi, I’ve been studying Spanish and have reached intermediate level, so am now looking for someone, preferably a native Spaniard, with whom I can practise Spanish conversation.  Ideally an hour or more each week to suit and  I’m happy to meet in person or Skype or FaceTime.  I can offer the same amount of time helping with English conversation.

Please email me on: lindahwlc @ gmail. com

Recommendation Cattery

I can recommend Campo Cats as the best cat hotel I have found east of Malaga.  Apart from the care the cats are given, and the nice “rooms” they have, an added bonus is that it is not a boarding kennels for dogs as well.  My cat isn’t used to dogs and in the past she has been frightened when she heard dogs in neighbouring kennels.

There are photos on the website:campo.com

Linda (not the Linda who owns Campo Cats)




Recommendation- A bouquet to:Torrox Viveros
bouq DogVivero Garden Centre, Torrox Costa. (Next to Lidl).

I recently bought some plants containers etc from there, very reasonably priced. Antonio was very helpful, and knowledgeable. He also speaks very good English. They deliver, (he carried everything up to my top terrace). Antonio even put up the wires for a vine to trail over.

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”

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.
