The Greek Hovel August 2020: Day 3: I am invited to a meeting by Nicho the Communist & an enormous present for Joshua

After a meal at what was Miranda’s (19.5 Euro for a salad and two meat dishes plus half a litre of rosé), we headed to Eleni’s Kourounis taverna for Joshua’s treat of some ice cream. It has become a daily treat and is one of the reasons he loves being in Greece. But he also loves watermelon and so to try and wean him off the ice cream we bought the smallest one on sale at Eleni’s which is, as you can see below, enormous.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - no Bearcast again today, more Midsomer for Joshua and me

Joshua had his one year injections on Wednesday and, like yesterday, I have just got a call from his nursery saying he was running a temperature (he was fine first thing) and could I take him home. It is a normal reaction to the jabs but - with his mother away for another 24 hours - it looks like Joshua (in nappy) and I will enjoy another afternoon of Misdomer and Morse So no bearcast today. Sorry.

What is God punishing me for? A sneak preview of hell

My one year old son Joshua delights with playing with mobile phones and TV controls. Thus poor Sam Antar got a 3 AM call from me in New York when my son managed to press a few buttons in the right order. Just a few minutes ago I got a phone reminder of something important. I do not actually know how to set such a reminder but Joshua has managed it. At least it was not at 2.58 AM like last time.
