Scandinavian woman (42) available for pet and house sitting assignments in Costa del Sol.

I'm used to both dogs and cats (adore them!) and are at the moment dog sitting in Torrox for the month of July
If you'd like to meet and talk, or we can Skype/phone if you live in other areas of Costa del Sol.
Fees are negotiable but I do need the money as I'm hoping to be able to afford my own place soon:

I'm very good with animals and they tend to like me and listen to me
 I'll treat your four-legged friend with love and care and lots of cuddles! :)

Treating Jelly Fish Stings

(1)
My wife was badly stung on the ankle on Burriana, she went to the First Aid where they bathed the sting with a mixture of yoghurt and lemon juice.
It eased the pain!
Vinegar will do - or even in extreme urgency, urine.
The sting is alkaline so you neutralise it with an acid.
The yoghurt is soothing too.
Hope this helps anyone caught by these shockers!
Cheers Andy
(2)
Whilst sympathetic to the person who was bitten, I very much doubt it was a Portuguese Man o'  War. They are huge and 2 bites would necessitate a visit to hospital, if not death.
If stung by a jellyfish apply vinegar or lemon juice, both readily available from beachside bars should be applied.
In extremis - use urine, especially if the victim is disliked by you.

Over 65s Discount Card

Friends have got a discount card from junta de Andalusia... eg cheap bus fares to Malaga.
Sorry if this isn't news ... don't know details but try

Just how big is the Greek debt?

 Far be it for me to criticise the economic policies other European nations but what does 330 billion Euros look like?
We are all familiar with a 50€ note, two of the note's dimensions are well publicised (140mm x 77mm). 330 billion Euros equals 6.6 billion 50€ notes. 
While contemplating this number .... pop down to Torrox lighthouse, clamber over the rocks and sit down so that your eye level is 3.55 metres above the sea (11 feet, 9 inches to elderly north western Europeans).
To the west the horizon is by the headland just west of Lagos. 
If you complete a semi-circular sector over the sea to the east then the area of sea to the horizon is 71.07 square kilometres (27.44 square miles), the same area required to place 6.6 billion 50€ notes side by side.
I don't recommend anyone to try this as the wet notes will not go back into your wallet!

(Editor writes:- Just occasionally, when reading my emails ....I feel that I've strayed into a Parallel Universe...!)

Sewing machine - key not needed....

You do not need a key the old wooden case just had a flat headed key.

Secret Birthday Cake Needed Please

My husband is due to have a 'special' birthday at the beginning of August and I need someone to make a birthday cake for him, which has to be kept secret please!!
 It will need to be local, Canillas de Albaida area, and delivered to a venue (locally) where we will be having a meal.
In view of the secrecy, please can anyone interested email me:
 tlv_ford (at) yahoo (dot) co (dot) uk      
I can't give my phone number as he knows nothing of this and he also never uses the computer, so this is the simplest way!
I'd make the cake myself but it would be a bit of a give away I think! 
Look forward to any replies, all of which will be answered. 
Thank you, Lorraine.

2nd Recommendation for Men with Vans

Thank You Men with Vans
Whilst my car was unwell and with the mechanic, Alex of 2 men with vans, collected me from Nerja, took me to IKEA, collected heavy flat packs, drove me back to Nerja and delivered items to my home.  He then returned 2 days later with his pal John and they assembled the item for me.
They journey was comfortable, quick, and friendly.
The work was assembly was quick, thorough and they tidied up afterwards. 
Very reasonably priced.
So a big "Thank you" to them.
They also undertake house clearances and removals.
