have a balanced life!

You can have it ALL but not ALL at the same time You can have it ALL but not ALL at the same time… I like this quote as it’s what having a balanced life means to me. It’s about striving for an equilibrium between family, work and myself (in that order), but realising that, when it comes to carving up time, it’s not always equal in love and life. Like our columnist Karren Brady says (p19), “Be prepared to hop from one foot to the other and try not to lose your footing!” That’s why I’m intrigued by a new book by Alex Soojung-Kim Pang, Rest: Why You Get More Done When You Work Less.

i’mlearning to be braver

NICOLA WALKER, 46, Is one of those actresses who on first meeting, might fool you into thinking she’s not actually “famous” at all. She arrives at our shoot dressed in jeans and a parka coat, having determinedly travelled across London on the Underground. Does she not get recognised, I ask? “When I did Spooks, people did start quietly sidling up to me on the Tube – but it’s only in the past couple of years that it’s started happening more.” Does she mind? “Not at all, but the worst is when you’re in the supermarket screaming at your husband and someone comes over and says, “I think Unforgotten is wonderful”; you have to reset your face into “Thank you very much!” – then they walk away and you continue shouting…

ask me anything

Technology – friend or foe? Friend, but I’m rubbish at it, so I’m probably a bad one! The last thing that made you laugh out loud? My dog, Dora. She was asleep on her back with her arms and legs akimbo… completely out. She’s hilarious. The best piece of beauty advice you’ve received? Go to bed before 2am. In fact, try to go to bed before midnight. Somehow, I just can’t seem to do it. The trait you most deplore in others? Intolerance… on all levels. Your greatest fear? Death, illness, wasps (they’re evil), spiders, sharks… Your foodie weakness? Bread and cheese with really thick butter. Your dream dinner party guests? David Bowie and Prince, please. Desert island essential? A really thick book. It would start a fire really well too. Believe in a higher being? Not really,…
