 New Digital Electricity Meters

Just got back from UK.  I notice we have a new meter and when we arrived it had a bright red light on.  It’s off now.  Can somebody explain in a nutshell how these things operate please.

Why does it flash sometimes, why is the light on sometimes?

I could read the blurb but if someone’s already done it….

Services Available – Endesa on Line

I am surprised at Paul’s comments regarding logging  on to Endesa’s website, I did it about 6 months ago on my windows laptop, I was registered and logged in (in English) in about 15 mins.
Here is the link for the English version:

Services Needed- Plumber

Does anyone know of a plumber who can urgently look at our boiler which is not producing hot water?

We have tried the local plumber but he seems too busy.

We are in the Competa area.

Many thanks.

Recommendation- Car Cleaning

Normally I take someone else’s “recommendations” with a pinch of salt, as I am sceptical as to the motives of the “Recommender”!

However, a few months ago, I read a recommendation for Car Clean Malaga, and owning a 6 year old Ford Focus that hardly had a panel that was not bashed or scraped, I decided to take the plunge and contact Warren to see what he could do.

Talk about turning “A Pig’s Ear into a Silk Purse” (figuratively speaking)!

When I got the car back, I was astonished at what he had achieved in such a short time.

All the scratches, scrapes, minor dents and dull paintwork were gone, and the car glistened with a deep polish shine!

Plus, the interior was spotlessly clean and the engine bay glistened like new.

Suffice to say, I was so impressed, that I gave him my 15 year old VW nine-seater Minibus to work on.

Again he did a fabulous job, inside and out, including a “bottom half” re-spray and it came back looking like it had had a complete body re-spray.

The inside had been deep cleaned and the upholstery looked new.

Many of our friends have commented on how good the “Bus” and Focus now look, and are now in contact with Warren directly !

Recently, we looked at replacing my wife’s pride and joy, her 20 year old yellow Renault 19 Cabriolet, which we lovingly call “The Skip”.

We visited many car showrooms, but we couldn’t find anything she liked, apart from a Audi A4 Cabriolet.

However, it was over 10 years old, on Belgium plates and had 240,000 klms on the clock. The price, ………………. €12,000;  just plain ridiculous!

So, we decided to put “The Skip” through an ITV, to see if it had any major faults. However, it sailed through; and so it too has been given to Warren to work his magic.

This will, no doubt, be his biggest test to date!

It’s having a “recycled” leather interior and seats, (which I collected from Madrid), and the dull and flaking paintwork will be given the full “Car Clean Malaga” treatment.

I fully expect it will come back looking fabulous and I should be the recipient of loads of those elusive “Brownie Points”. (Photos to follow later)

All-in-all, it will have cost us much less to have our three cars given the “Warren” treatment, than trade in and buy a replacement.

So, if your car is looking “tired, with distinctly Spanish paintwork”, speak to Warren on 618 346 098

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

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.
