Big Lovely Day Blog:
I write a blog about family life in Andalucia, it’s called Big Lovely Day. It’s a celebration of stuff to do locally – fiestas, hikes, beaches, restaurants etc.
With the good weather, we’ve got out with the kids the last few weekends and I’ve got a few posts written up or on the backburner. Here’s the latest:

Have you wondered about the Padron? Are you concerned that if you register, you will let yourself in for all kinds of official hassle?
Brits in Spain have published this interesting and informative article recently…
Are you on the Padrón? Do you need to confirm your registration?
The Spanish Office of National Statistics (INE) collects Padrón data annually, and the closing date for information to be submitted this year is 31 March. This data is very important not just for town halls but for everyone living in Spain, as it is used for allocating local budgets, among other administrative processes. You should register with the town hall where you live.
According to the Spanish authorities:
If you are resident in Spain, your registration on the Padrón needs to be confirmed every five years. If you are not resident (e.g. living here temporarily), but are registered on the Padrón, your Padrón registration needs to be confirmed every two years.
If your Padrón registration is due for confirmation, you can do this by signing a declaration form at your town hall. In some cases, your town hall may contact you in person (either an official from the town hall or the local police) or send you a letter asking you to confirm your registration.
If you change your address or personal details with your local town hall, your Padrón registration will be automatically confirmed.
If you don’t confirm your registration every two or five years (depending upon your residency status), then your town hall will start the process to remove you from the Padrón register. However, the town hall will attempt to inform you of this process, before you are removed.
If you have any questions about this process, please contact your local town hall.

Would You Like to Practice Your Spanish?
I`m a 41 year old woman, I speak English but sometimes I don`t practice it and I forget words.
For this reason I would like to find some English people who speak a little Spanish and would like to practice it.
This way we can teach one to each other, we could do it in a fun way, having coffee in a cafeteria, playing scrabble, etc.
I prefer to meet in Nerja and Torrox area.
If you are interested please contact me on:

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”
You must include contact details, either an email address or a telephone number in the text. If you don’t I cannot publish it. Often I cannot “extract “your email address from the email, so repeat it please.

About Photos and other attachments
If you want to send a picture please send it as an attachment to your email, in JPEG format and try and keep the size down to around 200KB.
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.
Thank you – Working together we can achieve so much! Jane
