Fylde Coast Musings vs Cyprus Life – in pictures

Originally from a small mill town in Heywood, Lancashire (United Kingdom) we moved overseas at the beginning of March 2004 and spent the next glorious 12 years in Limassol, Cyprus. Sadly, in 2016 we had to return permanently to UK due to family ill health. We now live on the Fylde coast where the river Wyre meets the Irish sea just across from Fleetwood. More places to discover and capture on camera!

The only way to shop – without leaving the house!

I do so hate shopping!

Any kind of shopping really, except maybe when we’re haggling for stuff that’s caught our eye in the streets and bazaars of Egypt 😉

Then shopping becomes fun for a while but even that gets kind of tiring and frustrating after a bit – so you have to spread your shopping days out when you’re in Egypt… Little and often, is the way.

Anyway, back to the reason for this post!

This is my kind of shopping. Shopping online – it’s so much fun and it doesn’t feel like shopping at all. Paying for it is quite painless too 😀

So for my shopping today, I was browsing my twitter account @CyprusPictures and the Amazon Daily Deals tweet popped up there. It wasn’t a book I particularly fancied but I clicked anyway and then had a mooch around in the Kindle Store for a couple of authors I like.

I was really looking for some Amelia Peabody novels for my Kindle but I didn’t like the prices. Both me and my husband are reading this set of Egyptian themed novels by Elizabeth Peters and given our love of Egypt, we’re enjoying them immensely.

So, if I could have found some versions for Kindle in a cheaper version than picking up the paperback novels from Amazon or Play.com then of course, I would have clicked “that” button. But it wasn’t to be – today…..

Agatha Raisin and the Quiche of Death

Instead, I’ve taken the first M.C. Beaton (Agatha Raisin series) and The Quiche of Death and I’ve finally succumbed and purchased The Istanbul Puzzle by Laurence O’Bryan. I didn’t enjoy the Da Vinci Code but I’ve been informed this novel is supposed to be a much more plausible a story.  We shall see….

“A brutal murder. An ancient temple. A long-lost treasure. Buried deep under Istanbul, a secret is about to resurface with explosive consequences…
Sean Ryan arrives in the ancient city to identify the body of his friend and colleague Alek Zegliwski. Alek has been savagely beheaded, his body discovered near the sacred archaeological sit of Hagia Sophia in Istanbul….”

I’m slowly but surely, stocking up on my Kindle eBooks ready for my long hot summer in Cyprus 🙂
