Hi
yes Glynis very true, i have one of each my sons not old enough to have a wife i will wait for that one

But any way life is Spain is very good and you dont live far from me i live just outside Arcos, and i am planing a trip to Chicalana to get some tea bags from eurosci, Ive been told they do a good line, is that true ? not so far to go as to Gib.

Can you tell me do you know where in your area is the shop where a spanish guy creates ceramics ?

And i have been told there is a shop with English books, i have been buying them from Carrafour but a bit limited,

any way enjoy the sun

Glynis probably knows more than I do, but I believe the English bookshop may have closed down. Ther is a lovely ceramic shop on the old road from Chiclana to Conil, in Colorado. Heading towards Conil it is on the left. In amongst the nice but slightly kitsch Spanish stuff there is some lovely original work, much of it created by the son who works in the rear of the shop.
Another nice place to shop if you don't know it is Bahia Sur in San Fernando on the way to Cadiz, and about 10 mins from Chiclana. There is a very good Carrefour, a small Corte Inglese and various other shops.

I get most of my English books from local car boot sales, we have them Thursday and Sunday, and there are plenty of small British shops that sell a few books, OK they are secondhand, but they do give money back when you take them back, don't ever pay more than €3 for a book, and some of them are brand new.

Has anyone had this problem with family's not being very supportive and thinking you are making a big mistake.

They either cant crasp that we are really going or it's why do you want to go there?

I get "look what you are giving up" Mmmmm my reply is well we have sold our home, my material things i could not give two hoots about, My husband is self employed and works for himself so not exactly in a employed job.

Also i only see my family every few months i do speak to them everyday on the phone but i am sure i can continue that.

Has anyone ever have similar experience and how did they deal with them, i honestly dont think we will be having any leaving do, are they being genuinely caring or do you think secretly they would of loved to have the bottle to get up and go!!!!!!
hi i wouldnt worry too much we had exactly the same experience but worse we told all our family 18months before we moved and one daughter said they thought we were being selfish then announced 5months before we moved she was pregnant (with our first grandchild) then 1 week later our other daughter announced she was pregnant too so we had this huge dilema do we stay or do we go so after many sleepless nights we decided it was time for my husband and i to spend some time together and they had their own husbands so we had 2 gorgeous grandchildren (1 boy & 1 girl) born 10 days apart born in october and we moved out here in in march it was probably the hardest thing we ever did, butwait for it our grandaughter who will be 2 next month has been out 12 times !!!!!!!!!!!making them our 24th lot of visitors in 18 months so im sure your family will come round but be warned you will never get any peace because once they see the lifestyle you will have out here they will keep coming back . good luck

Teabags in Eroski expensive and think they could be quite old. Still think a trip to Gib is the best or get people to bring them when they come out.

We've seen t bags in local British Shops, with the UK price printed on, and the price over here is something like 10 cents more than the euro price conversion, so not a lot of profiteering, however you do have to look around.
