We Had to Call a Plumber

Filed under: England,United Kingdom — Tags: , — needahand @ 11:00 am

We are currently back in the UK for Christmas and the New Year, and are staying with our daughter. Unfortunately on Christmas Eve we found water everywhere in the kitchen, due to the washing machine waste pipe overflowing (not surprised with the amount of use it gets). Now have you ever tried to get a plumber to come out on Christmas Eve? Hopefully not because it isn’t a pleasant experience, with women panicking all around you shouting “Steve DO SOMETHING”. Well I managed to call in a favour (I guess I know owe one again) and a mate came an sorted it out. Moral of the tale – don’t do any washing on Christmas Eve.

Flamenca Beach Playa Flamenca

Flamenca Beach Playa Flamenca Spain:

The place where most of the action happens in the Costa Blanca resort of Playa Flamenca (Orihuela Costa), is the commercial centre called “Flamenca Beach”.

This three story commercial complex houses dozens of restaurants, shops and bars and is the place most people head in the evenings when holidaying in this popular coastal resort.

Apart from some handy little shops, a good variety of cuisines, and some decent drinking holes and pubs, there is plenty of live entertainment on offer, especially in the busy summer months.

You will find karaoke, tribute acts, and excellent local singers, so whatever your taste in music, you should find something which pleases.

Most peoples favourite is the Temple Bar, where an excellent Blue Brothers tribute act takes place most evenings (quite late), but don’t leave it till the last minute to get there, as it can get very busy. The Flamenca Beach complex stands just back from the N-332, access it by getting off at the Lidl roundabout.
