Hi, we moved over to Spain, Costa Del Sol, about 18 months ago and my son goes to a private school, St Anthony's, which he thoroughly enjoys. My husband works away on the oil rigs on a four week rotation. I am just wondering if there are any other mums here in the same situation who find themselves on their own sometimes stuck for ideas of what to do with their kids.

Lou this is a very tricky one. The kids so limit your style and free time it is obvious you need to do something but of course you must beware the do gooders. In Spain there are still a few traditionalists who think kids are for life and not just for christmas.

I can only suggest that you investigate selling them into african slavery but to be honest prices have fallen what with the crisis and all. Another alternative is put them in the freezer. As spain goes down the plug hole for sure any type of meat will fetch a price.

But I hope you find a solution soon. Life passes so quickly.

I shouldn't laugh, but :spit:

how much do you think I'd get for mine :D

plenty of meat on them ;)


@ Lou.... oh how I remember being here on my own with 2 kids - my OH went away for work less than 2 weeks after we arrived here

once the kids were at school I realised that we were actually living here :eek:

school was the first port of call for finding things to do - just coffee after dropping the kids off was a start, then when the weather improved, the beach after school - you'll soon work up a group of coffee pals


after a few weeks of that I decided to take Spanish lessons - & then met more people that way - & so the circle grew
