Although we're on the Costa Brava in Spain we also had a house in Scotland which we let out in summer. We had a lady cleaning and preparing who was a gem. Her husband died and the next person was not ...

Just read the Catalan news. Two stories side by side. The first speaks about the tremendous success of Portugal's actions on Covid as The Envy of Europe". Most of their success is down to the level of ...
