Hope you're having a good February so far and you and yours enjoyed Valentines Day.
Well here we've been incredibly busy so just a couple of announcements before we move on to today's articles:
Firstly, we have launched a new jobs section today. We know jobs are difficult to come across in Spain at the moment so we're hoping this facility will be of some help. We're starting off with just a selection of actual jobs whilst we evaluate the facility. Let us know your thoughts.
Secondly, on Wednesday next week we are launching our new revised website for Eye on Spain. Yes, it's finally ready. We'll let you know what's changed at the time but you shouldn't notice any actual disruption to the service.
Oh, there is one more thing too. The week after next we're launching a new service called "The Siesta Club". It's a premium service for EOS members which we're really excited about. It's what you've been asking us for for so long now! More details to follow.
Anyway, hope you're enjoying the site and The
Siesta Show. We've had some really great shows over the past couple of weeks such as our tours of
Estepona. We've also talked about
international schools, visited a
dog charity, compared
supermarket prices and lots more. Check it out.
We've got some great articles in today's newsletter so sit back and have a good read.
Remember that you can also submit your own articles for publication in the newsletter and on the website.
