Casa Magel B&B, November special: Complimentary bubbly on arrival. 2 nights B&B choice of continental or English breakfast. 1 night 3-course meal with wine for 2 sharing a double room. 100€. Maybe possible to get tickets for Caminito Del Rey El Chorro if you book early. This is a good time to visit the wolf park 15 mins away as the wolves are more visible as the weather cools and they do full moon howling at night. Pop into Convento Magdalena next door and soak up the peaceful atmosphere with a nice glass of wine. Many nice walks all around, our little Roman town is a 15-minute walk away, with a very nice museum, good tapas bars. So much to do and see and then relax by the pool while our chef cooks you a delicious meal. We have a limited honesty bar or bring your own drinks. Full kitchen facilities for guest use. Terrace & BBQ. Pretty Gardens, lovely pool, yummy food, great hosts, fantastic views. Who could ask for anything more for 100€ for 2?

The episodes are: ‘Pilot’, ‘Naming Rights’, ‘YumTime’, ‘Short Squeeze’, ‘The Good Life’, ‘The Deal’, ‘The Punch’, ‘Boasts and Rails’, ‘Where the F**k Is Donnie?’, ‘Quality of Life’, ‘Magical Thinking’ and ‘The Conversation’.

Warren Phillips, Car valeting/cleaning: Warren came highly recommended on Dígame but he is even more brilliant than we expected. Warren’s attention to detail is remarkable. He said that he would restore the car to showroom condition and he returned a “new” six-year old car to us, even having managed to remove the ‘dinks’ from the bonnet caused by a hailstorm. Our other 15 year old runaround now also looks absolutely pristine both inside and out. Warren provides a full collection and return service and the whole package represents good value for money with an efficient, friendly service. Excellent.

Christmas markets: Hello to all the Christmas market organisers out there. Myself and many of my market trader colleagues would like to know the dates and venues of your planned Christmas fayres this festive season. There are a few of us interested in hosting stalls at these events and hope to arrange our calendars, as many Christmas fayres are on the same dates, It’s important to know in advance, rather than on the day before the event, as usually happens If you reply to me direct, I will pass on your info, to all interested parties Of course you may wish to tell all on Digamextra, to attract a wider audience. Kind regards Sam Sloan 625233801 Samsloannerja@hotmail.com www.chocolatesbysamsloan.com

Appliance Removal: I recommend Mark (635057354) who cheerfully and efficiently removed an old washing machine. Peter in Velez ppdev61@gmail.com
