When I planned my weeks food yesterday (for the first time ever!) to help with get back on track with Slimming World, I knew there was one place I'd have to go today.
Deryneia has a farmers market every Saturday morning, I'd been meaning to go for weeks now but had never got round to it before, always ending up getting a couple of bits at the supermarket while Leo was at school.
I chickened out of taking Louka, leaving him at home with Aaron and instead I enlisted Leo as 'my little helper'
Usually one to be a handful whilst shopping he loved our trip to the market, holding my list and reading out what we needed, then finding it on the stalls and choosing the produce.
I gave him the money and he asked the stallholders how much it was and handed it over speaking in Greek to them. He was given a huge strawberry by one lady so I think that's why he speaks in Greek, he knows they think it's cute and tends to be given things!
Maybe it was the responsibility or maybe it was the fresh air but it was a much more enjoyable experience than going to our usual supermarket. We even managed a quick shop there afterwards and he was still in a good mood!
