Services Needed – Dog Sitting

I am booked to fly to attend the anti-Brexit march in London on March 25th.

I have 2 small dogs who will need looking after for 5 nights while I am gone.

Is there a dog lover who cannot attend but would like to make their contribution by enabling me to go without worrying about my precious companions – and earn a few pennies too?!

I leave Thursday late and return Monday late.

Last time I dashed home to a funeral, several people offered to take my dogs for me last minute, but this time there is time for us to get to know each other first and for them to become familiar with their temporary home in advance.

Please contact me on clarondene @ gmail. com (without the spaces of course).

Services Available-Interpreter

Do you have an appointment with your doctor or with a specialist at the hospital ?

You may need an interpreter for that most important discussion with the doctor.  A lot of the doctors speak english of some sort, but most of them still prefer you to have an interpreter with you.
I worked at the hospital in Vélez as a volunteer for fifteen years.  I know my way around all the hospitals in Málaga too.  I give a really complete service, and i am not expensive.  I DO NOT charge by the hour.  I charge a flat fee, which includes transport if needed.

Recommendation – Computer Work

Recently saw a recommendation for Peter to fix computers advertised on Digamextra (thanks).

I have been having problems for a while now with my desktop and was

thinking of renewing my machine but I tried Peter first.

For the fraction of the price for a renewal I now have a desktop with new hard drive and all the software I need loaded.

All working like new.

To say I am happy is an understatement.

If you have a problem with your computer do try Peter.

I don’t think you will regret it.

Thank you

What WAS on Car Boot Market at El Pantano- Sunday 12th

Sincere apologies to anyone who traveled to the monthly Car Boot/Market at El Pantano, Lake Vinuela today (Sunday 5th). Contrary to normally reliable weather forecasts, at 8am Mother Nature sent us gale force winds, black skies and some rain, making it impossible, and dangerous, for stall holders to set up.

The market has therefore been re-scheduled for next Sunday 12th.

Same time. Same place. Fingers crossed for fine weather. If you require any further info, please contact Sandy on 619 471 301



What’s on –Creative Writing

I’m really looking forward to Tuesday’s first of 8 weekly Creative Writing Workshops in Competa on Tuesday evening.

They are clearly enthusiastic and have a lot to offer.

I think there may be a couple of spaces still, and they can be contacted on 951242468.

For Sale- Fishing Equipment

I have inherited a collection of virtually new fishing equipment which I wish to sell as a job lot, I have listed the main items as accurately as possible, however, as I know nothing about fishing there may be errors. I think everything was purchased from Decathlon in Málaga a few months ago, most is Caperlan brand which I believe is exclusive to them:

Carp Big Runner set (rod/reel)

Essential Lure 180 set (rod/reel)

Surf 420 telescopic set (rod/reel)

Black Rod Match 390 Light rod

Axion 30 Reel

Fladen Carp 3.6m 2.75lbs rod

Fladen Carp 50 reel

2 X Essential Game set 20lbs

4 X Telescopic bank sticks

Rod alarm (I think)

Keep net

Telescopic landing net

Caperlan 3 rod holdall

Plus a good selection of hard lures, floats, weights, hooks, swivels and more.

Most of the equipment looks brand new, in fact some items are still in original packaging.

I know that there is several hundreds of Euros worth of gear here, I want to sell the whole lot in one go to the highest sensible offer.

I am in La Viñuela but can meet Eroski in Vélez Málaga etc if more convenient.

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”

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
