The House of Alexandros Papadiamantis in Skiathos 2017

The House of Alexandros Papadiamantis in Skiathos 2019

Slighty disturbed that I’ve spent my pool and beach time this holiday lying on a One Direction towel.

England dispatch New Zealand to seal Cricket World Cup semi-final spot - England 305-8, New Zealand 186. Now I can relax about cricket until next week. Would love to see an England v India World Cup Final but have a feeling it won’t work out that way. 🏏

Interesting 🏏 stats:

Most wickets by an England bowler at a World Cup

JC Archer - 17 (2019)
IT Botham - 16 (1992)
A Flintoff - 14 (2007)

Currently reading: Sir Gawain and the Green Knight by Simon Armitage (trans.) 📚

♫ My Top 5 artists: Low (23), Stereophonics (23), Thom Yorke (18), Perahia, English Chamber Orchestra (12) & Rhiannon Giddens (with Francesco Turrisi) (11) via

Finished reading Circe by Madeline Miller. Very readable and lively recounting of the Greek Odyssey tales (and more) from the unique perspective of goddess/witch Circe. I’ll be looking out for a copy of Miller’s first novel The Song of Achilles now. 📚

England v India: Jonny Bairstow & Liam Plunkett star in hosts’ Cricket World Cup win. Exciting match to listen to on TMS - now England just need to maintain that level of performance. Perhaps the return of Jason Roy is the talisman the team needs 🏏

Increasing my limited space holiday cooking repertoire - ‘pizza’ made in a frying pan using pitas, fresh tomatoes, cheese, olive oil and oregano 🍕

Very pleased to get BBC Test Match Special streaming in Greece 🇬🇷 to listen to England v India Cricket World Cup game 🏏
