The school has stolen my child

A bit melodramatic, I know.

Before The Boy started school my Mum recalled the day I started school. She said she felt bereft, like she was handing me over to the authorities and was no longer the only one responsible for me.

Where does the time go?

When you’re a child time seems to go so slowly, birthdays and Christmas feel like they only come once a year and that’s a LONG time!

Elounda is an hours drive from Heraklion airport but I think its worth the drive, past the bright lights and English breakfasts of Malia and driving along a gorgeous coastal road. We got a taxi from the airport which cost €75 but you can also book cheap car hire and drive the beautiful route yourself.
