We are thrilled that so many of you have signed up to the Yours FitMind50 Challenge. It’s been wonderful to get feedback from readers who tell us the simple act of pushing out of their comfort zone and trying new things has given them a new zest for life. I’ve been interested to see the different approaches. Some can instantly list 50 things they want to try, while others need a little encouragement or inspiration. Either way the beauty of FitMind50 is that it doesn’t matter what you choose to do or how long it takes to complete your 50 (and you can join in at any time) – it’s a personal journey for everyone. If you’re yet to join, what are you waiting for? Turn to page 50 to find out…

send us a pet portrait

In every issue of Yours we include lots of ideas and inspiration for things readers might like to try. To inject a little extra fun we’ve decided to set a mini challenge every month that readers and FitMind50 members might like to have a go at. This month we’re asking readers to send us a pet portrait. We’d like you to recreate your pet, past or present (or an animal that you’re fond of) in any form – but ideally in a way you haven’t tried before. It could be a painting, a home-baked cake, a bit of embroidery or even a model in clay – the more creative the better so let your imagination run wild. To enter simply send us a photo of your creation (and a snap of the…

A Strictly new adventure Strictly Come Dancing pro Oti Mabuse (left), who lifted the glitterball trophy with Kelvin Fletcher at the end of last year, is set for a new adventure.

Cornwall here we come! Cornwall has come first in a top ten list of staycation locations for 2020 in the UK.

retro romances

Rex Harrison and Kay Kendall From the moment their eyes met on the set of the 1955 film The Constant Husband, it seems Rex really did do his best to live up to the title of that film, nursing Kay through myeloid leukaemia until her untimely death at the age of 32. Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall Meeting on the set of the 1944 film To Have and Have Not, their on-screen chemistry quickly became no make-believe after ‘Bogie’ asked her to write his number on a stray matchbox he had. Their relationship was all-consuming and lasted until Humphrey’s death in 1957. For more screen romances look out for Yours Retro – on sale Feb 27…

Julia Roberts and Danny Moder This Pretty Woman first met her beau, the cinematographer Danny Moder, on the film set of The Mexican in 2000.

star letter

Supermarket angel saved the day ✒ I just had to write about a recent experience in a supermarket. My husband and I shop together but I am disabled and can’t stand for long so I left my husband at the checkout and went back to the car. Meanwhile the shopping had gone through the till and the cashier told him what we owed. With horror and embarrassment he realised he’d forgotten to bring his wallet. Just then he heard the customer behind him say ‘don’t worry I’ll pay it’. He was amazed. Thanking the woman he asked for her number so he could pay her back. It was for £35, not a small sum. But the customer said no, she didn’t want the money back. How kind was that? We don’t…
