    That is soo true. I specially like Q1. Though it is nice working for ourselves we also work many hours or we couldnt afford to live here otherwise with two children! So far we love Spain, yes, not for everyone, but since being here its been very positive (for us). Great post Elle :) and nope… not going back to England either!

      I swear people don’t believe us though Ria! They soon learn when they head out on a holiday and don’t have our undivided attention for the duration :o) Thanks for taking the time to comment, love! xxx

    lol, I think you have been very kind here, there surely are many more things that you could have mentioned, ah, but maybe this is the first of a series ;)

        I think my favourite has to be “How often do you go home?” …… erm, every night, we live here!

    Great post Elle. With Stephen on this, we are looking forward to the rest of the series too :)

    Like you we are working really hard but still regularly have the “How long do you have for your Siesta? question from people back “home”.

      Ha ha. Looks like I shall have to pen some more along these lines then ;)

      Oh yes – the siesta question. Mind you – our nextdoor neighbour does have a siesta… but he’s 74 so I guess he’s allowed

    I suppose daft questions work both ways. I asked a local if he’d lived in Alhaurin el Grande all his life? he replied:- ‘Not yet’.
