2 Recommendations: Following the premise that it’s always good to share good news we would unhesitatingly recommend the following-
1. Casa Magel (see Sponsors Section below for contact) where we have just spent an extremely relaxing three nights. Maggie and Elio could not have done more to make our stay comfortable.
2. Archgrove Services (UK: 0044 7868 435052, Spain: 0034 951 06 60 93) who recently made a delivery in the UK for us and brought a small parcel back. Reasonable price, excellent, courteous service by lovely people!
We don’t have any connection with either of these businesses.

Note of Thanks: A huge ‘Thank You’ to the couple who had responded early next day to my post regarding a ride to Osuna. The offer was made to take me there, not because they were even making a trip or going in that direction, but because they sensed it was a matter of importance to me, and were therefore willing to take time out of their day to see me there. So here’s to mutual aid and generosity to the benefit of others.
Thanks also to Naythan for running the post that brought about these marvelous results.

Cats needing urgent re-homing: These two gorgeous ladies are looking for new homes following the sad death of their owner Fran. They are both in good health and are well behaved, lovely cats who prefer campo living. Layla is the grey one (12 years old) and Jessie is the tabby (around 10 years old). They can be homed together or separately, but the family urgently need to find a home for them under these sad circumstances.
If you feel you could give one or both of them a home, you can contact Nicola, on 657 149 284 or email zumbawithnicola @ gmail dot com. Location – Archez
