finding comfort in shared experiences…

So much has happened in the past month that it feels like we’ve all lived a lifetime since then, and everything we ‘knew’ seems to be changing by the day, doesn’t it? New challenges, new uncertainties, new worries. I know, like so many of you, that I’ve been feeling a rollercoaster of emotions – shock, disbelief, anxiety, sadness, rage and resignation – on an almost constant loop. SENSE OF HOPE But I’ve also been feeling hope, too, and in no small measure that’s down to you. When I recently wrote for our website about some of the personal issues I’ve had to contend with during this coronavirus crisis (bereavement; a daughter in GCSE year and another on an overseas gap year; illness among my wonderful team; plus the challenge of working in…

better days will return…

‘I hope in the years to come, everyone will be able to take pride in how they responded to this challenge. And those who come after us will say the Britons of this generation were as strong as any. That the attributes of self-discipline, of quiet good-humoured resolve and of fellow-feeling still characterise this country. The pride in who we are is not a part of our past, it defines our present and our future. The moments when the United Kingdom has come together to applaud its care and essential workers will be remembered as an expression of our national spirit; and its symbol will be the rainbows drawn by children… We should take comfort that while we may have more still to endure, better days will return: we will be with…

Q. What song brings back your happiest memory? A. Club Tropicana by Wham!. I’m back in a summer of the 1980s with my neon clothes, hair gel and electric-blue mascara with the exciting maze of life ahead. EMMA REED Endless Love by Diana Ross and Lionel Richie, which was the first dance at our wedding. We recently celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary. LINDA BAXTER Truly Scrumptious from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. When I stayed over at my grandma’s house, she would tuck me up in bed and sing it to me. It always made me feel so happy and safe. CHLOE TAYLOR Remember When by Alan Jackson. I used to dance to it with my sons before putting them to bed. I loved that time with them; the close hugs while they were wrapped around my shoulders. ALTHEA…

‘i’ve always chased the challenge that’s slightly out of reach’

When you get the opportunity to interview acting legend Fiona Shaw, you drop everything, regardless of time, day or location. So, we do, on a Saturday morning in London. Fiona is on a flying visit, quite literally, to the capital from Budapest, where she’s been filming the new series of crime thriller Baptiste, and is due to fly back the following morning. Even though she’s been pummelled by the elements and rogue ornaments out there (‘We’ve been out in the rain and all sorts of bad weather, and a vase fell on my head!’), she’s thoroughly enjoying her new role. A hugely successful stage and film actor for more than 30 years, with lead roles in productions such as My Left Foot, Harry Potter and Richard II, Cork-born Fiona was awarded an…

THE LAST GREAT BOOK YOU READ A Horse Walks Into A Bar by David Grossman, which won the Booker international prize. Lincoln In The Bardo by George Saunders was also very good. THE BOXSET YOU LAST BINGED I don’t binge because I don’t have time, but I adore a series on Netflix called Shtisel, about Hasidic Jews. Call My Agent is marvellous too, but I’m lucky if I get time to watch two episodes before having to sleep. YOUR CAN’T-MISS PODCAST West Cork. It’s about the murder of a French woman and the investigation into that by two journalists. If you start listening to it at night, you’ll wake up and just have to start listening to it again. YOUR FOODIE WEAKNESS Second helpings! YOUR FAVOURITE HOUSEHOLD TASK Polishing a table; the smell of polish reminds me of my…
