Yesterday was "Clean Monday",

which is the first day of Lent in Greece (rather like Shrove Tuesday, and no, I don't know why the Greek don't celebrate on a Tuesday like everyone else) an traditionally a day for flying kites. Nevi and I are not great kite-flyers (in the sense that we are rubbish at flying kites and can usually thing of better things to do with our time). But Greece expects, so we took the kids out to the park, planning to buy a kite en route.

But we couldn't find one (hurrah!) or a Spongebob Squarepants ballon (double hurrah!) and so we made do with shivering in the wind while Emily demonstrated her expertise at monkey bars. It is *so* time for that girl to get a new hobby...
