Did anyone see the Mothership last night? 

OK, seriously, I was woken up at around 2am last night by a very bright light in the sky. I leapt to the window (admittedly without my glasses), and couldn’t see the source of the light but I could see from its moving shadow that it must have tracked across the sky.

Probably not an alien visitation… perhaps more likely to be a ‘fireball’ from the Perseid meteor shower, but far brighter than I’ve ever seen. Perhaps more like the Chelyabinsk meteor from 2013.

Any thoughts?    Doug?

Rental House rental/pet sitting

My name is Lilian . I am 59 years old and looking to relocate to the Costa from England . I have family who live in Torrox.

I want to come out and stay next year for 2 months June and July .

This is to see if relocating is right for me and the chance to live independently . I’m looking for somewhere that is within walking distance of shops, amenities and places to do things .(as I won’t be driving straight away)

I have been to Nerja ,Frigiliana and Torrox of course all lovely .

I am looking to rent or ideally if someone has pets and they are going away for those months and need them looking after I would love to help .

I have 4 cats myself at home and know about boarding them out .

They are always so much more happy in their own home.

My daughter is looking after mine while I’m away .

I will pay rent to stay and you can be assured your pets and property will be well looked after . References are available if necessary .
