Recommendation for a Spanish Cleaning lady: Spanish cleaning lady who has been working for my wife and me for almost a year here in Competa. She comes with her mother once a week and they thoroughly clean our home (170 sq. metres), inside and out, top to bottom, in two and a half hours. We don’t know anyone more honest and hard-working in this town.
The daughter is a single mother of 35, raising two lovely daughters. She is currently working for three different homes, but would like to add at least one or two more regular cleaning jobs to help pay those end of the month bills! She/they would be willing to travel to Nerja and Torre del Mar, for example, or other towns,but would require petrol money. She speaks a little English, enough to communicate on a simple basis. I can’t recommend her/them too highly.
My name is Paul. If you are interested, please ring me and I’ll put you into contact with her. 634351754.

Many thanks DoctorLaptop: Naythan set up, personalised and installed several free programmes into my new laptop purchased here in Spain. I had not realised how many differences between English and Spanish set ups. Apart from the great add ons he installed, the removal of many unnecessary functions of Windows 10 junk has greatly added to a much smoother running computer.
Thanks Naythan. Rob, Los Romanes; zimbazen AT hotmail DOT com

Wanted: Recommendation for Health Insurance. My husband and I (63 years old) would like to take out Health Insurance in Spain, and wonder if anyone can advise us which company they would recommend? Thanks. Contact – Phyllis, Nr Alcaucin
