07-06-19 Kingsley: Winter

Friday 7th June 2019

Its raining again! Not heavy downpours but a consistent fall and lowered temperatures which makes us reach for the beanies and umberellas. At first Kingsley would complain that he doesn’t like winter; that he doesn’t wish for it any longer (in Greece he learned that with winter snow comes so while we’d seabathe he began asking ‘when will it be winter?’). Now he quite likes the maudlin skies because they signal rain and rain means he can open up an umbrella.

Tonight after jiu-jitsu in fact I got him his own: a big transparent one. He spotted it at Woolies and popped it straight into our shopping trolley! Mum’s black one we’d been borrowing he can now return to her…
