Breakfast...


The past days I was really sick...so sick that, as somebody said, people would remember me by my  throwing up on the streets of Athens (totally sober by the way)......terrible stomach flu that affected everyone, me being the last one to catch it. After almost 36 hours of nausea and other disgusting symptoms, I fell into a 11hour deep sleep.I can't recall the last time I had slept for so long, but when I finally opened my eyes, there was Garfield playing on TV...my boys were sitting at the table...bowls of cereal, milk, all breakfast ready....I was shocked, and proud, and  felt a little guilty...Apparently they woke up earlier than me (obviously) and went on doing the things I usually do for them in the morning. They didn't wake me up...it may seem like a normal thing, but to me it was a huge deal...finding them so independent at 9 am...or maybe they were just starving ?! who knows...nevertheless it was the highlight of my week.
While I was looking for some visuals to illustrate my post I came across these wonderful breakfast ideas for kids here . Absolutely adorable, aren't they? kinda make you wish you were a kid....

Time...memento mori!


Has it ever happened to you to talk to someone and be at a loss for words? there are things you meant to say, misunderstandings to solve, and you suddenly realize you're miles away from making a point and everything you say just...sounds wrong...and you have no time to explain , nor do you believe it's worth it, but you still cling to that last opportunity to shed some light and instead it becomes darker ??? pretty darn frustrating. Battling against what you should have said and what you really wanted to have said, battling against right and wrong, in the end...it's just what it is... and what it is , is so far away from what it used to be that there's no way you could even attempt to make a difference....so you choose to wait because time is the longest distance between two places...but also the safest one...

Spring onions!

These are Markos' onions harvested from the very balcony of his grandma, planted by him, watered and  cared for by him. The boy has got the green thumb unlike his mum who managed to kill every piece of green living plant she's even owned.Needless to say those were the best onions I've ever tasted and God is my witness, I know a thing or two about onions and garlic.

obsession...obsession...


Yeah...obsession...I hear it in my mind day and night....the piercing shrilling screaming sound of the children enchained by their mum and abandoned in a cave ...The pain of the mum as she was leaving them there while trying to find the strength and close the door behind her .With great position come greater responsibilities and sacrifices must be made.The greater good comes before individuals ...if you're wondering what I am talking about, well...it's a musical piece from my latest obsession,"Game of Thrones". Although I had the series in my  "must watch" bucket for a while now, I never found the time. Now I'm totally and utterly hooked...just as I feared I would be...It doesn't matter ...winter is coming and I still got two episodes before the end of the season. In the meantime, I cannot get it out of my mind....really!!!
