08-05-17 Before the Alarm

Monday 8th May 2017

For our first day back at school after a very active and exhausting weekend Kingsley 1) receives 12 hours sleep (interrupted; the kid has a perpetual blocked nose at night and is forever ‘thirsty mummà’); 2) wakes (me) half an hour before the alarm; 3) enjoys a breakfast of all things Greek: yoghurt, hunks of bread, kalamata olives; 4) chooses his attire (but still won’t dress himself); 5) rushes onto the school bus with neither kiss nor hug for me, however 6) sings and waves at me as Mr. Mixăli drives them all to school.
