    Get a proper, 4", blow up airbed. Buy a self inflating one, or buy an electrical pump. Make sure the pump fits your airbed - some of the cheaper airbeds have weird air inlets. DO NOT attempt to blow the thing up yourself, and don't waste time with a footpump, or think that your track pump will cut it.

    Worth spending money for a quality product, there are lots of bargains at the moment. The cheap ones tend to leak more.

    E17 is a quick trip round the north circular for me, so happy to run it over to you if you want it.

    This is an EA117. BUT, I've looked into it, and it I'm sure it's a licenced copy sold by Habitat in the late 80's / early 90s. All the design details you would expect to find on an authentic chair are present, but there's no logo or signature. Habitat sold these for a very short period before there was a falling out with Herman Miller.

    Anyway, there are a couple of flaws: The leather upholstery has a sag in the seat. The gas cylinder slowly deflates - you sit on it and find yourself going down. When it's down, it's a comfortable lounge chair, but it's too low for my desk. The leather has the number of scrapes that you would expect for its age. The aluminium has lost its polish.

    Looking for £90, collected, from UB2 area.

    This set of entries have been one of the clearest explanations of how to do it - clearer than I could have done. Thanks for putting the time in to spell it all out.

    Yeah, we thought about that too. And before Corona it was definitely a possibility. Others here know more about the paperwork for residency - it's more than just saying you live somewhere, you have to be able to prove you live there - bank account, Padron, TIE (?). And proving your income - which will affect your taxes.

    But this is only residency - the ability to stay in Spain legally, not Citizenship. Thats a whole different ballgame.

    Also, spouse of an EU citizen will be the same burden of documentation and proof of income.

    If I'm going to be poor, I'd rather do it in Spain.

    "So, if I went over there and started renting the cheapest place I could find, then booked this residency thing, pre-Dec 31, that would be enough? "

    Thats our plan - finding a town to live in in July, see estate agents in September, move in 1 October. Hopefully that will satisfy the local Eficina de Extranjeros that we are living in spain before 31 Dec. But, as Beseku says, a pricey way of doing it.
