make time for you

We are approaching my favourite time of year. I’m not talking about actual Christmas but the bit after – Twixmas, that lovely calm period after Boxing Day and before New Year’s Eve, where the work is done, the world slows down and it’s OK to sit on the sofa watching TV. In the past I would take this time to relax and then hit January with a self-imposed list of resolutions and goals to achieve in the coming year. But 2019 feels different. A recurring theme in this issue is about putting a stop to all that. First we have the hilarious Victoria Coren Mitchell writing her first column for w&h (p73), and it’s all about her NOT-to-do list. It made me laugh out loud, especially as I’ve been guilty myself…

what kate did...

“I really hope I inspire others to dance. I’d never appreciated how extraordinary it is to be able to learn how to move and the joy it brings” There’s no doubt Kate Silverton has been inspiring women across the country for the past few months, learning to dance on Strictly Come Dancing with her gorgeous dance partner Aljaž Škorjanec. A complete dance novice beforehand, Kate’s enthusiasm to learn and grow undoubtedly spurred her on in the competition. And it’s Kate’s optimistic nature that helped her through the traumatic time of being told she and husband Mike Heron were never going to be able to conceive – but they defied the odds and are now proud parents of two children. Kate’s career began when she trained at BBC Look North and became a presenter…

“No New Year’s Eve party? I’m delighted!” One of life’s best-kept secrets is that New Year’s Eve is hell. Shhh! I know you’re not supposed to say so. I know you’re meant to pretend you’re going somewhere fabulous in a feather boa and it will be fun, fun, fun, darling, instead of sitting in front of the TV watching fireworks in Sydney and Scotsmen doing mysterious things with coal. But, honestly, I hate New Year’s Eve. All that enforced jollity, the shouty counting down to midnight, the pretence that the passing of time is a happy thing when actually it’s a bit sad; the gulping down of cheap fizz, which you know will turn your poor head into a clanging steelworks by the morning. Even singing Auld Lang Syne, pretending you understand…
