On my holiday in Greece in June I learned that the word idio̱tikós means private.  The Greeks obviously think that people who live alone are idiots.  They love communal living.

Having just returned from a holiday in Portugal which I shared with two daughters, one son-in-law, one son-in-law in waiting and five grandchildren aged between 1 and 9 I have to agree with them.  I had a great time and whilst there were a variety of personalities involved for the most part we cohabited happily.

Not to have shared the sun, the swimming pool, the beach and the sardines  would have been a terrible shame.
