Cyprus Life – in pictures vs Fylde Coast Musings

Our new life in Cyprus began in early March 2004. Originally from a small mill town in Heywood, Lancashire (United Kingdom) we moved overseas spending a glorious 12 years in Limassol. Feel free to read my posts and view my many #photosofCyprus. However in 2016 we had to return permanently to UK due to family ill health. We're now living on the Fylde coast where the river Wyre meets the Irish sea in the north west of England. More places for us to discover as this part of the UK is not so familiar to us either.

Fifty Shades of Grey – what’s all the fuss about?

Leave a comment

A lot of my ex-colleagues from the UK have been prattling on for the last week or so about this “Fifty Shades of Grey” and so curiosity finally got the better of me today…

Okay, so I’d already worked out it was a book from one the recent comments “Seriously I cannot put this book down…. Christian Grey you have a lot to answer for!!!”

Fifty Shades of Grey by E L James

I took a quick visit to and found this:

Romantic, liberating and totally addictive, the Fifty Shades trilogy will obsess you, possess you, and stay with you for ever …

Daunted by the dark secrets of the tormented young entrepreneur Christian Grey, Ana Steele has broken off their relationship to start a new career with a US publishing house.

But desire for Grey still dominates her every waking thought, and when he proposes a new arrangement, she cannot resist. Soon she is learning more about the harrowing past of her damaged, driven and demanding Fifty Shades than she ever thought possible.

But while Grey wrestles with his inner demons, Ana must make the most important decision of her life. And it’s a decision she can only make on her own …

So now I’ve learned it’s a series of three books, it’s also going to be a movie (if it isn’t already) and apparently, it’s a bit on the raunchy side.

If that doesn’t give you any clues then this clip below of Ellen Degeneres recording the Audio Book version may help 😉

One final question – is there any chance it will steam up my Kindle screen?
