Services Available –Carer Services

If you are looking for a carer or know of someone who might need extra help, I am a qualified Registered Nurse from Australia and I am offering a reliable home care service including people with terminal illnesses, dementia, disabilities, and also for people seeking a little extra help with daily tasks including personal care.
I am available from Nerja to Benajarafe and surrounding areas (Cómpeta, La Viñuela etc).
At this stage I am not providing a Registered Nurse service, but in the very near future I will have this up and running, as I know there are people within the Axarquía region who are needing an English speaking nurse who can also speak Spanish.
For any inquiries or more information please contact me at
Or 695 957 016



Services Wanted – Information Request – Mobile Phone Signal

As we begin to settle into our new home in the Torrox countryside it would seem that we are more rural than we anticipated.

We cannot receive a mobile phone signal.

We have tried several different mobile service providers:

Vodafone, Lebara, Movistar, Mundo etc. to no avail.

We have a booster dish installed on the roof – a Fixed Cellular Terminal.

Still no signal.

Has anyone else faced this issue, and importantly, resolved it?

We had broadband installed and it works fine.

We don’t want to install a landline although that is beginning to seem

more and more likely.

At first the 15 minute walk to get a signal had its charms.

Those charms are gradually wearing little bit thin.

Any advice will be appreciated.

Recommendation Needed – Opthalmic surgery

I wonder if anyone in Digameland has had experience of either the

Vistalaser Clinic in Malaga, though they do have other branches, so any experience of them at all would be helpful,

or the Instituto Ocular Marcos in Torre Del Mar?

I am considering having lens replacement surgery, and would appreciate any feedback particularly from either of these clinics, or of anyone who has

this type of surgery anywhere locally around Malaga/Granada.

my email for replies is        cathyws @ hotmail dot co dot uk

A very interesting voice, accompanied by a rhythm and swinging guitar,

New Rules to Remember (and abide by….)

There are several days per week now when I have to spend over 5 hours processing submissions & readying our Blog for publication – that’s more than I want to cope with! hence the following advice……

Bars, Restaurants & Clubs –

Please limit your entries to One per Week!

I suggest you list your programme of events & send it Tues/ Weds for inclusion in the Thursday Issue.

Identification Information for Everyone

I will not be able to publish your entries unless you have included your name, location & contact information ( phone number &/or email address)

I had 8 (!) people email me today without this information. Unbelievable!

Faulty Submissions.

If I have time, I can email you to ask for corrections, extra info. etc. etc.

However, if I don’t have the time then your email will simply be deleted on

a daily basis along with all the others received that day.

Negative Reviews

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.

For Sale Items – Repeats

No repeats accepted under 4 weeks & pictures unusable unless in JPEG format.

Photos take up much of my time – downloading, resizing, copying and retrieving to put in the ads

Nevertheless, wouldn’t be without them !

Deadline for  Items in 4pm daily – to this address (janekirkspain@gmail.com)

The decision about what to publish is mine,

if I don’t want to publish then I won’t

Please do not type whole words IN CAPITAL LETTERS.

Only the first letter can be in Upper Case.
