Just as I did for over five years on the Bubblews channel (before being robbed) and for the three years I am here, I would start my Fridays with a Greek greeting "Kalimera, Kalimera everyone" . . . which means Good Morning to you...

Hi everybody. It's Mildred the Cat. I don't like what I'm seeing outside and my mom really doesn't like what she's seeing - tons and tons of snow. Right now I'm huddled on the radiator trying to stay alive while my mom paces and...

Kalimera Kalimera and happy Friday to everyone I am feeling in a Greek mood today, so I decided that it would be good for a Kalimera Morning. (Kalimera means 'good morning' in Greek) I am currently on Chapter 72 in the...

katerina Kalispera Lany, I'm so happy you're enjoying it. I actually wrote the Amazon blurb and plumped for farcical as the perfect description. I've been writing a storm and finished Book 2 in the Greek Meze Series on the day you penned this post, so been busy with...

Despite my age, I have always maintained a fairly good head of hair. When I began chemotherapy I expected this to change because loss of hair is well known for people undergoing chemotherapy. To my surprise, 6 weeks after the...

katerina Now Lany, the dresses in 'Goat In The Meze' are described as hideous, but not black. They come in a variety of very drab colours. Traditionally the old widows wear black dresses (with pop socks). I can't attach a photo to this comment but I will do a post...

As I mentioned in an earlier post today, this was a meeting with the consultant to receive an update on the progress of my chemotherapy so far. I feel that the chemotherapy has made a difference and therefore expected a good...

I have been reading Katerina's book slowling and enjoying every chapter when I have had the time. "Goat in The Meze" is certainly light Greek entertainment and as I progress through the village of Astakos and get to meet the...

The chemotherapy was scheduled to start on Tuesday, but the day did not go to plan. After providing a blood sample I was waiting in reception when I suddenly collapsed. I was diagnosed with an irregular heart condition which was...

katerina Did they tell you why they didn't start the treatment as soon as they had the diagnosis, it seems bizarre you are still waiting to start it? On the cheery side I was delighted to suddenly have the penny drop and realise it was YOU on FB, didn't recognise you...

katerina Barry I am so sorry to hear you have such hideous news to cope with and am sure the diagnosis must be a horrible shock that will take weeks to sink in. You are sounding very stoic and I hope you can find some way not to be submerged by the blackness of it all....
