Services Needed – Spanish Teacher

Does anyone have an email address for Sergio who runs the level 1 Spanish classes? We missed 2 weeks classes when on holiday the first 2 weeks of October which Sergio knew about but, sadly, my husband became quite ill whilst we were away and is not fit to attend classes for the foreseeable future; as I don’t want to leave him on his own for 3 hours a week unfortunately I too will be unable to attend. I would hate Sergio to think that we just were not interested so would like to email him to explain. Alternatively, if anyone on here attends the level 1 classes could they pass on a mesage for us? Many thanks.

I am considering buying an Air Con unit from Cooltec, that uses the attendant system, to close the unit down if doors or windows are left open.
Does anyone have any experience of this system?

Recommendation – SMS


Following Colin’s post, I would just like to point out that you can access your account online with Sabadell, and look at transactions etc, without using a mobile phone. It’s only if you want to transfer money that you need to get a code by text to confirm it is actually you doing it, not someone else nicking your money! I for one welcome any additional security, and using SMS is common in UK banks too. My mobile doesn’t get much of a signal at home, I can’t make calls on it, but there’s enough to get a text. I’m surprised that Colin’s phone can’t do that, given how many more masts have gone up over the years. When mobiles first became more common way back, in Sedella people could only get a signal by climbing up the hill behind the village……



La Caixa and Cajamar give you the option of SMS or a Matrix card. The card is plastic, the size of a credit card, with a series of random numbers. When you are working online, a transfer for example, it will give you a reference off the card, A3 for example, and you then enter the corresponding number.

You must ask for this option when opening the account.

Steve, Competa.



Recommendation – Chimney Sweep

I also recommending Diego.

I met him for the first time today when he came to clean our chimney in Árchez. He was a very clean and tidy worker and checked our chimney from the roof all the way down to our log burner. He has identified a problem with the weather proofing of our chimney and has left 2 drawings for our builder along with a list of the materials needed to do the job and his phone number in case our builder wants to speak to him on the phone.

So all in all, a great service at a very reasonable price.    Margaret

For Sale – Composted Horse Manure

Now is the time to prepare your garden for the Fall season!

Composted horse manure will provide the much needed fibre mulch for the ongoing health of both the soil and the plants growing in it. Aside from the natural, slow release nutrients of the horse manure itself, the earth will benefit from the humus, which keeps the soil lighter, preserves moisture content and acts as a storehouse for nitrogen, which plants need to produce the protiens required for green stems, strong roots and lots of leaves.

The manure has been composed for 6 months, and is bagged in clean sacks.

Each sack holds approximtely 25L. 6 euros each.

Don’t hesitate too long as supplies are limited!

Located in Algarrobo (pueblo) – arrangements to be made in advance for pick up.

Delivery between Nerja/Competa/Torre Del Mar/Lac Vinuela – an additional 5 euros to cover fuel expense.

Please don’t send PDFs or Word documents.

Your email address must be quoted in this format…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. 

New 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.
