We’ve arrived safely in Kefalonia after a very early (3am!) start. They say you should never work with children or animals. Perhaps we should extend that to travel…? To begin with, Sammy (the cat) tried to get in the taxi with us, then 10 minutes into our journey we realised that Olivia had smuggled in her favourite, DOUBLE bed sized furry blanket and a backpack that took us over our baggage allowance. There was a rather unfortunate and fairly dramatic scene on the pavement at the Terminal drop off, where I had to wrestle this enormous fur blanket from her. Not at all funny at the time (fishwife screams from me, sobs from her) but it must have been quite amusing to anyone watching.
I eventually retrieved the blanket and we had to send it back home in our taxi. She maintains there would have been plenty of room for it in her hand luggage sized suitcase. KIDS!!!🙄
