hello!

Ancient and modern Are we rediscovering the 1950s? We’re eating more vegetables, making use of leftovers to reduce waste, and swapping plastic bottles of handwash for old-fashioned bars of soap (see page 18). Plus, since the virus hit, we’ve become more appreciative of a slower pace of life. But not everything about the 50s was great – the widespread intolerance of people with different skin colours was particularly horrible – in that respect, I thank heaven we live in the 2020s. The 50s’ diet was also very dull compared with today: pasta, now such a favourite, was barely eaten; so if you love our modern pasta, take a look at page 22.…

good to share

Watch the birdies The UK’s migrant birds are about to depart for warmer climes, so autumn is the perfect time to spot a variety of species as they begin their journeys. Coastal areas are excellent places to keep watch, with dawn and dusk the best chance. It’s not all about departures. Redwings, fieldfares and many species of ducks and geese arrive for our comparatively mild winter and wetlands are the perfect place to catch a glimpse. For more information, visit rspb.org.uk or nationaltrust.org.uk NOTE TO SMILE AT KING’S CROSS With the capital beginning to regain some of its former hustle and bustle, those who visit King’s Cross are in for a treat. Until 30 September, street artist Andy Leek will be continuing his @notetostrangers project, which features handwritten notes created to spread optimism…

what you’re wearing

HELEN WALTER, 40 Tell us about your look I bought this jumpsuit from Asos – it was a bargain for around £20. I love the colour and the daisy print. It’s a fun item to have in my wardrobe and it’s really comfy. The sandals are also Asos. My bag is Oliver Bonas. They always have great accessories. And the best bit of your body? My hair after it’s just been done! FINN EMMERSON, 52 Tell us about your look I rarely buy anything new any more and am happy to shop on eBay or in charity shops. It just makes a lot of sense regarding sustainability. My top is M&S from a local charity shop and I found my trousers in a clearance sale at TK Maxx about four years ago. My sandals are by Ryka…

‘you have to create your best life’

Graham Norton seems like a social butterfly. A fan of white wine and dinners out, he’s ebullient and funny and – until recent events forced us indoors – very much the life and soul of the party. And so Graham’s had a shock during lockdown. ‘The biggest lesson has been realising that I’m not as social as I thought I was,’ says Graham. ‘It’s just odd. I haven’t missed anything. It makes me think I maybe shouldn’t live in London because all those things people do in London, I’ve not missed any of them. I think I’m like a lot of people who have realised, I can’t spend any money and everything in my life is still all right.’ Graham spent lockdown alone at his house in London’s Docklands with his elderly Labradoodle,…

why we love model villages

At one time, a visit to a model village was as much a part of the classic British holiday as donkey rides on the beach. The craze for these dinky dioramas took off in the 1930s, when they began popping up all over the country, but when we started jetting off to the sun in the 1960s, their popularity flagged. Now, they are once again attracting visitors. And with our lives having been so restricted of late, perhaps these representations of perfect little worlds hold an even greater appeal. Here are six of the best… Bekonscot Buckinghamshire Due to its proximity to Windsor, the world’s oldest model village has had Royal visitors since it opened in 1929. Princess Elizabeth, now our Queen, first stepped into this tiny realm just before her eighth birthday.…

magic magnesium

This mineral has a relaxing effect on muscles and helps to reduce the effects of stress. Get it from your diet (dark green leafy veg, nuts and seeds). ‘All nuts and seeds are rich in magnesium, especially cashew and Brazil nuts,’ says nutritionist Rob Hobson. ‘Nut milks are a good source. Make magnesium-packed smoothies with them’ Or add a handful of magnesium flakes to your bath. ‘You‘ll find you sleep really well after a good magnesium soak,’ says GP, Dr Sarah Brewer.
