I just want to put out a BIG 'THANK YOU' to everyone who helped me get through the last year. I know that your well wishes, your supportive mails, your prayers and your friendship will certainly have logged up Karma.
I also want to thank my Lawyer, Mr George Vergiatakis of Agios Nikolaos for his wisdom.
As for George Stefanakis, I wish him a happy life and hope that he never hurts anyone else the way he has hurt me.
I am now going to write my book in the peace and quiet of my lovely house in Vrahassi where I shall enjoy life together with David my soul mate, my lover, my best friend and the best husband in the whole world.
(Did I tell you that Pouchi has been adopted? We are down to one dog again, Zouki, who is very happy to have her kennel back)
AND TONIGHT IS THE BIG PARTY AT ALMIROS WHERE I AM TO PLAY 'VALANTINO' so I'm off to practice my music before Greek class at midday. Life goes on dunit!
...and last night imbibing yet again in the centre of Vrahassi, our company, Rosemarie, Gavin and Patrick who is on a flying visit from London where his job as Sports Commentator demands most of his time.

You have all seen those American court room dramas; it was very similar. He who shall not be named turned up with his lawyer and two 'witnesses', one a relative, the other a mate (yes he managed to find one). The IKA Board consisted of 8 people. With me was my Lawyer, David, my two witnesses and my interpreter (who I have to add was an angel sent to me at the very last minute).
Going into the office I saw a pin on the floor and of course picked it up, "see a pin and pick it up, all the day you'll have good luck," that made me feel very positive, however when he who shall not be named entered the premise I wanted to stab him with the said pin and in my mind devised all sorts of scenarios. Shall it be in the inside thigh? Shall it be in his kidneys? Shall it be straight for the... no, no, stop, I thought. The pin was getting very hot in my tense fingers so a carefully put it down on the window ledge for somebody else to pick up.
Then we found out that our case was last on the list, again, and that we would have to wait for about 2 hours, and while my solicitor had a 'power nap' the rest of us made small talk. Then I noticed that he who shall not be named was 'SMOKING' right under the NO SMOKING sign. I marched up to his solicitor and said, "Am I correct in thinking that it is not allowed to smoke in here?" "Yes," he answered. "Well, HE, is smoking," I said pointing to his client. As I walked back to my company the offending cigarette was put out (in the tall ash-tray provided for... hem... none-smokers). It was of course mental war games. He eyeballed me until he had to turn his head away because I sure as hell wasn't going to. All I could think of was the crushing hurt that he had inflicted on me by having the police take me in, by blackmailing me for 8,000 euro first and then trying a Solicitor's letter for 10,000 euro. And because I laughed at that then he had gone wimping to the IKA office which had resulted in all the stress of this Tribunal.
There was a lot of shouting, mainly by his Solicitor, some from mine and authoritative voice raising by members of the Board of IKA. He who shall not be named said very little unlike last time when he too nearly blew his head of in a spitting rage. I remained silent until I was asked to speak and then I have to admit I broke down. I really tried to keep control but my voice strained through the tears until I had said what I wanted to say. Then it seemed to be over and we were all ushered out.
And now we are still waiting for the results. Whatever the outcome, I feel a winner. I am rid of the worry of having to go through that meeting, and I can move forward with my life.
I don't know whether the pin which I picked up did me any good, maybe I should have held on to it a while longer. When I know whether the Board have agreed to his demands or not I will let you know, meanwhile...
PEACE AND LIGHT... PEACE AND LIGHT... PEACE AND LIGHT...

Meanwhile the chaps can do what they usually do! To be fair this was a gathering outside Cosmos bar in Vrahassi on Wednesday evening when we all got together to wish Mark a very Happy Birthday (That is Mark the Bug Buster). Unfortunately my camera is really not working too well since I dropped it and the pic I took of Mark and Lydia was not good at all.

Now the celebration is over and it is down to work again. Cello practice first for my debut with our 'ensemble' on the 25th July. It's a private party... very select...and Mozart!
