My family and other animals.

            The inspiration for the title of today's post comes from a book that has been  loved and read many times by me: " My Family and Other Animals" by Gerald Durrell.
A splendid story about the Durrell family set in Greece on the island of Corfu just before the outbreak of the second world war.

I first read this book while at school, since then, I have read it numerous times, it describes life in Greece to a T!

 little did I know then that one day I would be writing about my own family's life in Greece.
