My mam’s in Crete right now. Say hi if you see her.Decided yesterday to extend my summer holiday in Crete by a week.
So..I took the overnight ferry and am now in Athens. Sitting outside an anarchist type cafe sipping iced coffee..and the flat I rented for peanuts is a 6th floor penthouse with terrace overlooking the city.
Everyone hates a showoff but I'm busting here.
A cousin of some sort has researched a detailed family history from mid 19th to 20th century.
Extreme poverty was the order of the day. My grandfather was in care and played a blinder to come through it. His father had legal problems after being involved in stealing food to feed his family.
There was some very grim stuff uncovered. Not unexpected.
This is real history not the boring 100th anniversary stuff we have been hearing since 2016.
I'm traveling today and bringing a bunch of fancy cheeses with me for a big dinner with old friends
Took down an empty tin from the cupboard to carry cheeses safely and voila
Secret fucking choco stash!
(actually just a tin I used to transport chocos during the summer)
