Robbery in Torrox Chinese Shop

My sister was robbed Saturday in the big Chinese shop in Torrox….
Two young women crowded her from behind do she didn’t even get a look at them….
Beware…. These creeps are professional and know just how to do it
My sister lost money, credit cards, drivers licence, and other pieces that are a pain in the butt to replace !




Bag Stolen from Home

I had my bag stolen from my house on Cebadillas Bajas 3, In Torrox Pueblo.

(I unlocked the door for two minutes to water the plants and turned my back to empty the washing machine) Thurs eve about 6pm.

I’m hoping the thief took  my valuables and dumped it, it has my prescription glasses in it.

Straw bag about 18in by 12, white leather trim and handles.  Tortoise shell glasses. Also black Sony xperia e phone.  Fluorescent green rubber cover.

My English phone is 079563945 and I have messenger and whatsapp.

Send a text and I’ll call back. My husbands Spanish number is 651735055.

Thanks Karen and Mike




Homes Needed 


We went to the car boot sale in Algarrobo today where an old man had 4 baby dogs in a basket.
My boyfriend took one in his hands and the man was gone. He gave the little dogs away because his dog had babies and he didn’t have money and space to keep them.
We went straight to the vet in Torrox who told us the little thing is just 3 or 4 weeks young.
We live in a Van and we already have a dog who hates other dogs. Because we don’t have a flat/ house we are not able to keep him.
A shelter is no option as well. Little Pepe needs so much love and contact…..
Can you please give him a beautiful Home?

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”

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. 

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.

 Thank you – Working together we can achieve so much!       Jane
