welcome to spring

My husband Adrian and I are at opposite ends of the tidy scale. I would love to live in a clutter-free home with beautifully curated shelves and well-organised pots for pens and pencils. Adrian, on the other hand, has an emotional attachment to stuff. He’s not a hoarder or anything extreme like that but he says things like, “I can’t get rid of that table [dark brown wood, been in the garage for decades] because my granny used to eat her dinner at it.” I feel I can cherish the memory of my grandparents without keeping every item they ever interacted with, but Adrian would feel he was betraying Granny Christine if he put that table on eBay. It just goes to show that clutter is complicated, which is why…

LAURA MILLAR is an award-winning travel writer who attributes her love of “abroad” to spending the first 16 years of her life holidaying in France every year, thanks to her French mother. Since then she’s ramped up the wanderlust and visited places as diverse as Iran, Haiti and Patagonia. She reveals the best places to explore nature in the UK on p116. Tell us about a time you tore up the rule book? Let’s just say that when you’ve found The One, why wait until the third date?

my main ambition is to get my raised beds planted!

She’s been in the industry for over 40 years, so it’s no wonder Julie Walters has become picky when it comes to taking on new acting jobs. But while she’s reluctant to take on any hard-hitting roles at 69, Julie admits she’ll never retire fully. “I’ll always do little bits,” she says. The actress’s latest role in Wild Rose is playing a struggling Glaswegian mum to Rose-Lynn, a young aspiring country singer, played by Jessie Buckley, who Julie describes as “such a talent”. Rose-Lynn was recently released from jail, during which time Julie’s character, Marion, had been looking after her two young children – and she’s not keen for her daughter to run off to Nashville to pursue her country singing dreams. For Julie, relating to her character is something that’s extremely important to…

allison pearson mistress of minimalism (not!)

Moving house last month meant that I got to do the Mother of All Spring Cleans. Here was a chance to cast off the stuff I had been lugging around for half my adult life like one of those peasant women you see in a Bruegel painting pulling an ox-cart through a lake of mud. I was looking forward to releasing my inner Marie Kondo after my friend Claire gave me a tour of her own bedroom. Claire’s wardrobe rail was hung with a few well-chosen pieces, unlike mine, which was so crowded that multiple garments shared a single hanger and I could never find what I was looking for. I particularly liked the drawer in which Claire’s recently Kondoed pants were rolled up small and cute, like sleeping hamsters. According…
