let’s be kind to ourselves…

Are you one of those people who breezes through life without a care in the world? No? Neither am I. Worrying seems to go with the territory for many of us and, for the most part, if we’re lucky, it’s controllable – let’s face it, it’s the worrying about things that often gets them done. But sometimes it gets a bit out of hand and becomes unproductive or worse. If you suffer in any way, big or small, our anxiety quiz on page 92 will tell you what kind of issues you might have and gives great tips on how best to deal with yours. (I was mostly Bs, by the way.) I recommend reading it as the first step towards being kind to yourself – because you deserve it. And…

International bestselling author LIONEL SHRIVER tackles tough subjects unflinchingly. Her latest book Should We Stay or Should We Go is no exception, so you’ll be fascinated to discover how she writes on page 167. What was the last thing that made you cry with laughter? A meme that featured several pictures of deep, empty post holes in the dirt, with the caption ‘These posts have been removed… in case they cause a fence’. It’s just a pun, but a perfect double pun that’s socially apt. Writer and part-time smallholder REBECCA SCHILLER runs the Mothers Who Write community and is co-founder of the human rights charity Birthrights. Her memoir, Earthed, is out now, and she has written about her not-so-simple life on page 42. What was the last thing that made you cry with laughter? My…

STAR LETTER I read your article on e-bikes [May] with interest. No one should dismiss them as ‘cheating’; it’s the chance to get out there. In 2015 I had breast cancer, and I now get out of breath very easily. Prior to this, I loved going out on my bike. We tried an e-bike on holiday and it was a game changer. Caroline, by email MAKING A DIFFERENCE I enjoyed your piece about female police officers [April], but I wish it had included the 3,000 specials in England and Wales. Most have day jobs and families, but we work, unpaid, with regular officers. Megan, by email MORE HELP PLEASE I’d question your statistic in the menopause feature [May] that symptoms are manageable for 80% of women. For many, myself included, this is an awful time of life.…

‘i’d be hopeless at being queen ’

‘I don’t have the level of calmness required. I’d be in hot water within a week!’ She’s the queen of the silver screen who famously played Queen Elizabeth II in 2006, a role that won her the Academy Award for best actress, but Dame Helen Mirren insists she’d be ‘hopeless’ in Her Majesty’s court shoes. When we catch up with Helen, 75, over Zoom, she’s as charming as ever as she discusses a new project to tie in with the Queen’s 95th birthday – and her admiration for the monarch is obvious. But there is something Helen is quick to point out: ‘I’m a republican,’ she says. ‘So I’m not a royalist, but I would say I’m a Queen-ist. I think that describes me perfectly.’ Helen – who divides her time…
