Just to let you all know, in case you didn't :) That I am very busy writing my novel 'The Two Worlds of Tony Leonitou'. I have completed a draft copy, now the arduous task of typing it all out, then editing it, then editing it again, then publishing it on Amazon Kindle, also as a Paperback with Createspace. My eyes hurt, my back hurts, and my neck hurts, but it's worth it. :)
I am wondering why nobody is saying hello?
I am going to do the ironing now...it's 38 degrees, I have the fan pointing directly at me which does keep me cooler, but keeps throwing the clothes off the ironing board!!
Then I have to do some prep work because I am decorating my daughters bedroom.
THEN, I might do some writing. :)
You're not alone! Just come by to say hi. 💋
Woohoo, we can have a party now. :)
You doing ironing ? Really lol mind you swap you that for my hot griddle ;) xxx
Yep, Sarah insists, Lol.
Testing 1 2 3!
already done that... x
Decorate? Write? Decorate? Write? Oh F***k it...Beach!!
For anyone interested....
apart from my novel coming up, 'Two worlds of Tony Leonitou' I am writing a follow up book to 'Floras story' and humorous tongue in cheek book about Greek women. Any suggestions for titles are welcome. Don't know when they will get finished though, got to decorate!! Bye for now.
Yo Chris! Just popped in to say hello!
thanks for the visit :)
Is 'Deeper Cut' the follow up of the Grandad Miller serial Killer Part one' book?
I think I have 'Keyboard cramp' in my fingers, well, FINGER! :)
Apparently, for people to take an interest in you and your work, you have to be, well, 'interesting'.
I know I'm interesting, this is not arrogance, but I HAVE led an interesting life, all I have to do is convey this to YOU in an interesting manner so you can read my 'Blog' and perhaps my books.
When I think of only one aspect of my life, i.e. my working life, I have done many interesting things to put food on the table. Some I can tell you about, some I can't, and the ones that I can't are the most interesting :) Note the over use of the word 'interesting'.
When my next book is published, Mid August approximately, 'The Two Worlds of Tony Leonitou' you might get a glimpse of the things I can't tell you about. It is a semi autobiographical, semi fictional story, so I will let YOU decide what is real and what is not. :)
I am going to list the jobs I have had since leaving school at 15 years old, right up to date. Why? well because I think it's interesting how diverse they are from each other.
1. Paper round.
2.Butchers delivery boy and assistant.
3. Shoe Upper maker. (Self employed).
4.Restauranteur. (Self employed).
5. Night Club Manager.
6. Property Maintenance. (Self employed).
7. Owner of a hairdressers. (Know NOTHING about hairdressing)>
8.Bar Manager in an Hotel. (In Cyprus).
9. Hotel Maintenance man. (In Cyprus).
10. Professional Magician. (Started 30 years ago as a hobby, went pro 8 years ago)>
11. Author/Publisher. (Self employed).
So there you have it. If you find me 'interesting' enough, and want to know more about my books, or maybe me, these are the places you will find me.

Happy Reading, bye for now.
Hello dad just a quick hello ... Just reading about the jobs you've done haven't you forgotten any? Maybe I was to young but I remember STOP THIEF car alarm ...wasn't that one of your jobs? Xx I'll check out your web page later but from what I've seen It's great.. Bye for now
Something wrong with the time it's 11:30 am not 3:30am
Hi Mike (son) :)
Yes you are right, and I had a pub, and a few other things I had forgotten about.. Oh well, I'll add them later.
The time thing, I think because this is an American based website it's probably their time. Love you son xxx
Good to read your stories, Chris. You should have done it years ago!
Thanks for the encouragement Lucy. Yes I suppose I should have done it years ago, but a little thing called life got in the way. :) Not that I haven't got a life now, it's just a different one.
i remember the Stop Thief days and the shop near St Andrews .Think you did all our cars with the sandblasting on our windows x
yes I remember the shop, my life changed quite a lot in that period, don't know why I had forgotten it?
Just dropped by to say hi!!
Thanks for dropping by. I really need to sort my blogging out and get a community here. :)
Thought it was time I made the effort to update my blog.
I would be interested to know how many of you out there have or are using ecigs? If you are, what are your thoughts on them? Have they helped you? I have been using them for a couple of years now and they definitely keep me off the cigarettes, but obviously I am still addicted to the Nicotine. Eventually, I will have to wean myself off that too....eventually.
Hi, just met you on aboutme.com, I liked your happy smiling face,so thought I would take a look at your site. Re ecigs - you might not like my opinion, but as a non-smoker I find them almost as objectionable as the real thing, especially in restaurants! There you go! You can cross me off your list of contacts now if you like, but it's better to be honest.
thanks for the post, and happy to know you. I agree entirely with your objections and wish I could kick the habit entirely. I am very much addicted to Nicotine as I starting smoking from a very young age. I know they sound like excuses to a NON smoker, but it is not easy believe me.
Anyway, what you up to? Any writings/projects in the pipeline?
Great to hear from you, would love to get this blog off the ground.
Coming soon and guaranteed to make you laugh.
'ONLY IN CYPRUS'
A hilarious guide to living in Cyprus.
A taster from my new book coming soon, 'Only in Cyprus' a hilarious guide to living in Cyprus.
He is followed by his three ‘mini-me’s’, not quite the same weight, but catching up quickly. Two boys, probably ten months between them so they look like twins, and a daughter a bit older who will probably have to start shaving soon.
And here comes the wife, and such a contrast you have never seen! The lady is positively anorexic! A stick insect has more meat on it! It leaves you wondering how on earth they had children together; surely any sexual encounter between them would result in her being severely injured? She has her arm through Yiayias arm that can hardly walk on a hard surface never mind sand! Why are they torturing her so? I can only assume it’s to look after the ‘Weebles’.
They stake their claim by sticking a pole in the sand with an umbrella. The Dad, as if marking his territory, walks backwards dragging his heel in the sand around the pole, he claims about an Acre! This is why…
He returns to the pickup truck with the eldest weeble and comes back with three sun loungers and another umbrella. Second trip he comes back with a plastic table and four chairs. The third trip he returns with a Gazebo! Which they erect in record time as they have done it so many times. Fourth trip is the BBQ, coal and firelighters. Fifth trip are the cold boxes, one with the meat in it, one with salads and fruit, and one with the beers and other cold drinks. The piste de resistance, on the sixth trip, an amplifier, two speakers and a CD player and a small generator that will also power the two halogen lamps that come on the seventh trip! I think they are here for the long term!
A poem I wrote about my daughter when she was 3 years old:
I watch you from a few feet away
Sitting there on the rug as you innocently play
Surrounded by Lego, toy animals and the like
You have even managed to dismantle your bike.
I watch as you struggle to eat
It’s Spaghetti, your favourite treat
Some goes in your mouth, but most on the floor
Your mother has a chuckle as she looks round the door.
I watch as you bath
All your toys in tow
Water everywhere, even on me
I love your laughter, oh such glee.
I watch as you snuggle down in your bed
Waiting for your story to be read
You have fallen asleep, you’re looking content
Tomorrow we will know where it is “Noddy” went.
I watch as you sleep
Breathing deep and slow
I look at you and wonder where you go
I kiss your cheeks, your forehead too
Oh my Lucy, I do love you.

Tony could have gone anywhere in the World to escape Tyrone’s clutches, but circumstance took him to ‘Hastings’ on the South coast of England, where Tyrone’s long reaching arm found him. He is once again embroiled in a life of crime, not his chosen occupation, but one he seemed to be enjoying.
His love life also changed in the form of Tina, a passionate woman with an insatiable appetite for sex, which Tony was only too happy to provide. Sex eventually turned into love; can love and crime exist side by side? Find out in this second part of Tony’s two worlds.

Just wanted to say 'hello'...!
I loved Flora's Story and looking forward to reading more about her. Also, I must read Only in Cyprus - although I'm not too sure about the 'Only' bit...! Some of the scenes sound remarkably similar to things that happen where I live, on the Costa del Sol...
Hi Sylvia, thanks for taking the time to visit me :)
You are probably right about the 'Only' bit, I'm sure that the descriptions within the book happen in a lot of Countries, but it's just a bit of fun. I'm pretty sure Spain is similar...must be the Olive Oil and the diet.
Well you know I'm an Author, so you keep reading, and I will keep writing :)
