It was very hot in the UK as well. We are not used to such extreme weather, you know. Temps are back to normal now...22C today in London. Enjoy your holiday!

I once purchased a ceramic vase on ebay for only £8. It arrived cracked! I sent it back, of course, but it took them ages to replace it. Since then, I've never shopped with them again. I've been doing my online shopping on amazon.co.uk for the last 3 years and have never regretted it.

A professor once told me that if you go into psychology because you just want to help people, you'll make a terrible psychologist. I agree. To really be satisfied in psychology, you need to be able to step back and take joy in learning how people work and using empirically sound therapies and techniques. You also need to be actually pretty cold-hearted - you need to empathize without sympathizing because if you feel right along with your clients, you'll be too messed up yourself to do them any good.

What a hearty meal! I wish I had some of that octopus in the clay pot. It looks delicious! By the way, I use cod or haddock fillets for my homemade fish and chips but I'd love to know more about your skordelia.

I always look forward to your Monday's Greek recipes as I always discover new and exciting dishes. I must admit I've never eaten okra, I don't even know what it tastes like, but I would love to try your recipe and find out. It looks delicious in the photo.

Thank you so much for sharing your traditions, Anastasia. Traditions handed down from generation to generation bind people to their past and connect them to their future.

I am a British anti-colonialist citizen - this is why my heart aches when I hear of such terrible acts of cruelty performed by British colonialists against other nations. No wonder you are so proud of your hero's self-sacrifice.

Thank you for this very amusing conversation with your diary, Anastasia. I've been keeping a diary since my early teens and this has helped me greatly to overcome emotional upsets and come in terms with an emotional problem by seeing it in a different light.

I'd rather focus on the positives and regard Valentine's Day as a special day to look forward to and an opportunity to celebrate with my husband by preparing a candlelit dinner for us - something that I honestly can't do every single day of the year. Love deserves to be celebrated on a special day.
