Think Harrods has every toy a child could dream of? Think again! JUMBO is the largest network of toy stores in Cyprus and by large, I mean LARGE. There are stores in Limassol, Nicosia and Larnaca (our local store) and you simply cannot have a holiday in Cyprus without visiting…

Dimitri’s Big Fat Greek Christening!

So despite this month being all about weddings, I thought that a christening post would be just as appropriate. Back in November 2015 I brought you a post entitled Pip’s Big Fat Greek Christening. This gave you the lowdown on my first born’s official introduction to the Greek Orthodox Church and all…

What I eat in a day… VIDEO!

Yep it’s time for another semi-parody. I say ‘semi’ because I actually do eat everything in this video on a regular basis, just not all at once or everyday… I do (try to) eat my greens and I drink lots of water. I’ve seen many YouTubers recently jumping on the vegan bandwagon…

My Morning Routine Parody VIDEO!

The morning routine. For some it’s a time of peace and tranquility – a moment to collect your thoughts as you physically and mentally prepare yourself for the day ahead. For others it’s a mad dash – a nightmare of alarm clocks, dreary commutes and cold starts.

A Night with Hypnos: The God of Sleep

Ah Hypnos, the God of Sleep. What a great guy. So calming, so gentle, and so very very dreamy. Unfortunately these days I rarely get to spend a night with Hypnos. Instead, my two little monkeys have invited Chaos to join us and poor Hypnos has been banished to the Underworld.
