31-07-20 Kingsley: Note from Νονά

Friday 31st July 2020

While Kingsley enjoys his Friday at school, the rest of us attend Τασούλας funeral a cheerful and poetic memorial to her wonderful sunny glorious life. The babies sleep through most of it and I sit in myssocially distanced pew next to a celebrity! Mary Coustas a.k.a Effie. Of course I introduce myself and later on thank her for the inspiration found in her book “All that I know” that gave me the stamina to endure IVF after IVF. She and husband George showed great delight in this, engaged us in chat and were introduced to Elektra and Keanu when Erroll turned up.

Meanwhile Kingsley loved school, reading and writing but especially sitting among his buddies at the pick up zone. There’s Kingsley between Lachie and Teah, whose mum Michelle I later call to ask whether the kids would like a play date. Lachie too wants a Playdate but he’s got a surprise coming before then: a letter in the mail from his buddy Kingsley. An envelope filled with photos, stickers and a letter.

Jesse received his letter today, sending Kingsley no less than three videos of thanks.
