We can see the Sierra Espuna mountain range from our conservatory window and it looks very similar with snow on the top. It is very cold, bought more pellets for the stove today as we light it about 8 am and don’t turn it off until about 11pm when we go to bed. It is forecast to go as low as minus five degrees in the north west of the Murcia region most nights this week.

And didn't the UK Government stop the heating allowance for Ex Pats because it's not cold in Spain in the winter?BUSBY.

Yes they did stop it and I know some people who it would really help to have this. They’ve spent all their working life in the UK and paid into the system all their lives so it does seem unfair. I think many think that it’s hot with wall to wall sunshine all year but that’s far from the truth!

Stop it ... not having our winter trip to Spain for some nice sitting out in the sunshine has only been made bearable because you lot are getting snow! :giggle:

No snow here in Javea, but they had some just round the corner in Moraira. 😲

So after 5 days of almost continuous rain and sitting around eating and drinking, the :sun: has returned and it's been like a Chinese laundry, 😉 2 loads washed hung out and put away. 😁

We are changing our green residency to the TIE, and as it such a job getting appointments at alicante, we thought we would renew the pardon as it's free and make sure everything is in order, 😉 we don't want a wasted journey . 😁 Bob.
I was just being silly, Bob, as you´d written pardon rather than padron - I thought you´d just made a typo :LOL:.
We´ve just renewed our padron, and will start the process of applying for a TIE to replace our small green residency card. Are you doing it yourself or through a gestor?

Quite right. They are easy to do yourselves and for €12 each it saves a lot of money to a "fixer" 👍
