find joy in your life

“Our mantra is meant to encourage all women to live their best lives and find the thing that makes them happy” We are all about having a “can do” attitude at woman&home – hence our “Yes you can” message on the cover this month. but we don’t mean this to be a rallying cry to become some sort of superwoman – that would be far too exhausting! Our mantra is meant to encourage all women to live their best lives and find the thing that makes them happy. One feature that I hope you’ll find inspiring is Back from the brink (p56). We all wonder how we would cope if something awful happened in our lives, and the three extraordinary women we interview describe how they found hope when the worst really…

HELEN LEDERER is a comedian, actress and writer. Her comic novel Losing It was nominated for the Wodehouse Prize for comic fiction, and Helen recently launched a Comedy Women in Print prize – the winners will be unveiled in June. She writes about the benefit of hindsight on page 86. What’s the bravest decision you’ve ever made? Returning to stand-up comedy after a 14-year hiatus… I had to face the fear and make it work for me. Then the only fear in the bar afterwards was missing last orders! KIM WILLIS is an award-winning journalist. Having started writing stories on her mum’s typewriter in the 80s, she fulfilled a childhood ambition by becoming a professional writer.

‘‘i don’t want to be real i want to be amanda holden!”

She may be one of the most recognisable faces on TV, but there’s no denying Fay Ripley is as down to earth as they come. As soon as we meet the actress on our shoot, with her 12-year-old son Sonny in tow, she apologises, “I’m so sorry, he’s off school sick today!” And, throughout the day, Fay provides us with non-stop laughter. Most famous for her portrayal of Jenny Gifford in Cold Feet , Fay has played the character since 1997, and in the current series she’s sadly been diagnosed with breast cancer. In real life, Fay lives in London with husband Daniel Lapaine, who played Hugh Jarvis in The Durrells, their daughter Parker, 16, and Sonny. Playing someone with cancer is not the same as having cancer, so no one…

My daughter just turned 23 and she’s beautiful. OK, I’m biased, obviously, but so much that we call beauty comes as a free gift with youth. When Evie complains that her bum is too low-slung to look right in jeans, I see an enviably pert backside that fills out denim a treat. When she laments the fact that she’s short (actually, she’s the national average height for women), I quote my own mother, “Good things come in small packages.” Can she not even take pleasure in her huge hazel eyes? Nope. Don’t be ridiculous, Mum! Her eyes are “hooded”, apparently, or so she informed me the other day. ‘Why I feel lucky to be the age I am right now’ It never stops, does it, this business of young women finding fault…

yes you can achieve your goals!

So how can we keep going until we reach our goals? Just imagine the scenario. you have a presentation to give at work. the big day comes and your mind goes blank. you get through it, but only just. you vow “never again”. you’re no good at public speaking. that speech you were planning to give at your husband’s big birthday? Forget it. but what if you handled the fallout differently? What if you said, “that didn’t go so well, but next time it will be better.” instead of hiding away, you went out and bought a book about public speaking – stand-up comedian Viv groskop’s How to Own the Room would be a good place to start – and had another go? and that, according to psychologist ian Price, is the key…
