sitting comfortably? then let’s begin...

A short story can be just the thing to take us out of ourselves for a few minutes of blessed relief Back in the Twenties when Good Housekeeping first hit the newsstands, short stories were an essential part of the mix. There were at least three per issue, and over the years we were proud to feature some of the most illustrious authors of their day – from Elizabeth Bowen to Doris Lessing, Edna O’Brien to Maeve Binchy. Then the popularity of the short story declined and, by the turn of the century, fiction was a rare ingredient in most women’s magazines. But short stories are once again in vogue. Blame our short attention span? I don’t think so. But certainly we are busier than we used to be. And a finely-crafted…

worth sharing

THIS MONTH, WE ASKED YOU TO SHARE A FAVOURITE MOMENT Q. What is your most precious Summer memory? A. The smell of lavender takes me back to holidays in France. No responsibilities, no stress, endless sunshine and the best raspberry ice-cream ever! VERONICA HILL Paddling in a stream, catching trout, climbing trees and picking wild strawberries.

working my passion, ‘ is it keeps me alive’

One thing is clear: Arlene Phillips rather likes being busy. She’s preparing to tour with her brand new musical show all about her own life story. She’s also planning the birthday celebrations for Starlight Express and relaunching a rock musical that she directed last year. When GH catches up with her, she becomes impassioned as she shares stories from the dizzyingly successful career in choreography that took her all over the world. Now 74, she got her first job doing a paper round at the age of 12 to help pay for dance classes. When she arrived in London, she found work as a dance teacher before setting up her own dance troupe, Hot Gossip. The success of the group led her to work with stars such as Duran Duran and…

celebrating the joy of jane

‘Her books are literary penicillin’ It was Jane Austen who made me want to become a writer. Beneath her humorous veneer, Austen is a barbed commentator on the battle between the sexes. As a woman, she realised that poetic justice is the only justice in the world – and set about impaling misogynistic enemies on the end of her pen. I, too, only write because it’s cheaper than therapy, and writing humorously enables me to kneecap the pompous, pretentious and chauvinistic. Austen’s books are literary penicillin. Doctors should prescribe them. Replace the antidepressants with a bracing Northanger Abbey or a juicy Persuasion, and you’ll feel better in no time. I’d call it ‘Prose-ac’ – only it’s not tranquillising, it’s transforming. On the surface, Jane’s prose is so beguiling, her sentences so beautifully crafted,…

sowing the seeds of happiness

I started to believe I’d live to see my BEAUTIFUL GARDEN come to FRUITION ‘With time and patience, everything can heal’ As she battled serious illness, seeing new life growing gave Anne Careless courage and hope From the moment I saw the converted flats in the Jacobean manor house, I knew I had to live there. The only problem was the garden: it looked like acres of chaos. Huge conifers grew wild and out of control, interlaced with creeping weeds. It would take a lot of work to re-establish its former glory. But I saw the beauty beyond the brambles. I’d barely done any gardening before. Standing among the trees, though, I felt calm. That garden offered the peace and privacy I needed; the perfect escape. I knew that, with the right care and…
