May-June 2016 Saronitha
During our 2016 Summer holidays in Greece, our base was Saronitha and our daily ritual for either breakfast, lunch or dinner (or all three) was held on mum’s tiny beachside apartment balcony. It was here that Kingsley enjoyed Kalamata olives with bread, veal sausage pan fried till tender, corn flakes with milk, and every single day one big juicy orange. Our balcony picnics were often taken while Kingsley was topless and I wore a bathing suit, the Greek summer sun being so hot clothing we both found bothersome. It was also here that I made efforts to teach Kingsley how to handle a knife. A wholly unpleasant exercise but one that is necessary for any able-bodied toddler.
