Monopoly madness Since lockdown began, family life for many has changed dramatically – and not always for the worse. One of the upsides of spending more time at home means my husband and I have had the opportunity to teach our daughters how to play Monopoly. We started off with the junior version and now play the ‘grown-up’ one. It’s certainly been the most effective way to keep them off their iPads. Such is their enthusiasm for the game now, we fear we have created mini property tycoons! On page 10 we round up our favourite British board games to share with your friends and family when we can all be together again.…

good to share

Flutter by June is the main flight period for many of our most dazzling and threatened species of butterfly, including the Swallowtail, Black Hairstreak and Glanville Fritillary. And you can help the leading wildlife charity Butterfly Conservation to assess the effects of climate change on populations. Simply submit details of sightings in your garden or nearby, online or via its app. Visit butterfly-conservation.org/butterflies/recording-and-monitoring MOVIES FOR CASTAWAYS Which films are among the nation’s favourite ‘Desert Island Flix’?

Darker movies like The Shawshank Redemption and The Matrix feature too. With so much variety, island time would surely fly by! DID YOU KNOW? With…

what you’re wearing

LOTTIE DARWIN, 53 Tell us about your look I do love a dress – preferably one fitted at the waist with a full skirt and a sleeve. I spotted this pretty style at Boden. I loved the print, and the jersey fabric makes it really comfy. I’ve had my bag for ages and my red sandals are John Lewis. I’ll often add a splash of colour with accessories. And the best bit of your body? My hair. LISA MITCHENER, 51 Tell us about your look I’m wearing all white as it was supposed to be my hen party! My silky top is Phase Eight and my jeans are Hollister. I‘m wearing a favourite blue bangle by Les Georgettes to go with my shoes, which you can’t see here. Pale blue is the colour of my bridesmaids dresses,…

‘i’ve always loved a good story’

A much-loved face rarely off our screens, Sir Kenneth Branagh has directed and starred in some great British films, including Henry V, Murder on the Orient Express and the Harry Potter series. Now the 59-year-old reveals it was his childhood in Belfast that spawned his love of storytelling. ‘There were a lot of us. My mother had 11 siblings, my father had five, so I had dozens of cousins. We would all meet in each other’s houses and, of course, this is in the pre-internet, pre-large-numbers-of-television-channels age, so when we did meet, the members of the family would start telling stories.’ He affectionately recalls that the tales would grow taller as the gatherings wore on, starting at ancient Belfast and ending at giants and trolls. He adds, ‘I grew up with a real sense…

all on board!

Board games are a great way to bring the family together, and may even get your teenagers off their phones. The Egyptian game of Senet, dating from over 5,000 years ago, is the oldest known board game, but backgammon, draughts, snakes and ladders, and ludo all have ancient origins. The games mentioned here, though, are much more recent, and focus on aspects of British life. Have fun! 221B Baker Street Age: 10+. Players: 2-6. Sherlock Holmes is probably Britain’s most famous fictional detective. Together with his sidekick Dr Watson, he lived at 221B Baker Street in London – and that’s where this race game starts. One player reads out an intriguing case, then everyone sets off through the London streets to collect clues to solve it. The first person to return to 221B…

walk yourself healthier!

Forget 10,000 steps It’s an arbitrary figure anyway, probably set by marketing men in Japan years ago to sell pedometers. Some health experts are concerned that the target is too unrealistic and puts many of us off even trying. Instead of aiming for a set amount of steps, simply try to increase the amount of walking you do each day. Build it into your daily routine. Get the right shoes Walking shoes are fine for warm, dry weather on flat ground. Boots offer vital ankle support and are the best for challenging terrain and changing weather conditions. Solid leather uppers are good if you might run into boggy ground, but they’re heavier. Good material boots will be waterproof, but won’t offer as much protection when it’s heavy going underfoot. You need a good…
