I know we are all struggling with the lousy rate we are getting for our pound. I just wondered if the rumours about dropping it down till it equals the Euro bares any truth? It does make you wonder. Frightening, whats do others think?

Apparently the British Embassy in Madrid has issued a statement announcing that there is a temporary halt to the passport courier service as a result of the recent transport strike. If you have already submitted a passport application then you can check with the embassys hotline betwee 10:00 and 14:00 on 915 249 761.

So if I have this right, to be self employed, I have to register with the tax office, which in turn means I have to employ someone on a monthly basis to sort my tax for me, then pay my social security which is around €250 per month, plus whatever the autonomo is, before I earn a bean. Its all abit scary.

My daughter and her friend are thinking about coming over from the UK to work for the Summer, and I was wondering what kind of wages they can expect to earn. They are both in their early 20s and I would imagine will be doing bar or kitchen work.
