Another visit from the Greek Stork of Olympus!

Another visit from the Greek Stork of Olympus!

So I can finally share with you all one of the main reasons I’ve been taking a break from my blog for the majority of this year. This week the Greek stork of Mount Olympus visited me once again to deliver an extra special package alongside my usual delivery of halloumi and houmous.

Looking a lot like a grumpy old man, my second little Greek prince entered the world on 1st November after threatening to be delivered via broomstick on Halloween! 

After following Greek tradition and naming Pip the First after my father-in-law – Andreas (also the name of my brother, who decided that Pip should be named Andreas the Lesser) I finally got my wish to name a son after MY father and so Pip the Second has been bestowed with the title of Dimitrios the Great (the younger).


I’m not quite sure how I’m going to nickname them both now – in Greece, people with the name Dimitri are often called Jimmy or Taki. I’m not keen on either of those…but perhaps Andreas and Dimitri could become Bill and Ben – Dick and Dom – Ant and Dec hmm that might stick…any suggestions? (Keep them clean people).

With a toddler, a newborn, my in-laws and a Greek man on my hands my sanity is bound to take a beating (not that I was ever sane anyway) so you can be sure that after the remainder of the year away from writing, I will be back in the new year with many a tale to tell.


For the time being I will continue to post to my facebook pages and twitter when I can and don’t forget to catch up with my sister’s gluten-free recipes over on her blog The Gluten Free Greek – we’ve got a few collaborations planned for the new year which I am very excited about.

My series of children’s books is still in the mix and some of you may remember that back in June, myself and two other authors released the box set FANTASTIC GREEK SUMMER READS: THE GREECE WITHIN ME which is available on Amazon Kindle.

Is it too early to say that I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas? 😉

Adieu for now my friends and thank you so much to everyone who has sent their good wishes at this crazy time!

    Συγχαρητήρια! Awesome news. He looks lovely and a mom with two little boys is always better than with one. It’s good to hear we will be entertained more with your writing now. Dad must be proud. Well done, guys.

    Congratulations! May both your princes live as long as the tall mountains (Greek wish). You have a pair (*whispers* good luck). I hope the little one is gentle on you and allows you your beauty sleep. Thank you for sharing this sweet picture!

    Congratulations again my dear friend. I have to congratulate you on every firm of social media. I like the name Dimitrios but it may take a while to not call him Pip 2 🙂

    -Stefano. I think Stephen is Greek for crowned or anointed one 🙂
