in the footsteps of rex

I’ve written before about the wonderful singing of the choir at my local parish church, but personally, although I might attempt a burst of All Glory, Laud and Honour while in the shower, a public-spirited concern for the wellbeing of others precludes me from singing in public. It’s true, I’ve sung publicly when much younger, but only as an actor – and actors are forgiven their share of quirky singing, ever since Rex Harrison and more recently, Pierce Brosnan, made it allowed. However, I read on page 8 that singing can boost your memory, so as I’m rapidly becoming more scatterbrained than a forgetful goldfish, I think it’s time to extend my bathroom repertoire. It’s a mystery I think Geraldine Ryan is the new master of suspense! Don’t miss her compelling serial,…

Happy motorist My four-year-old granddaughter Holly Jean loves her pink Fiat 500. It’s such a warm bright colour that it cheers the winter days! Mrs A Palmer, Warwick Look what I made My mum buys your magazine every week then passes it onto to me! I thought you’d might like to see her latest project. She’s a very talented lady and often doubts her capability! She’s made two of these sausage dogs for my sisters and I think they’re wonderful! Ann Jones, Yorkshire Happy in my own skin I couldn’t agree more with Hermione Norris saying ‘There’s something beautiful about women in their 50s’ [29 J an issue]. It redefines beauty not as a ‘moment captured in airbrushed imagery’ but the definition of a life shaped b y laughter and tears, wisdom and contentment. I w ould…

gardeners’ questions

Q Is it true that I can make liquid feed from leaves? Sarah Holt, Winchester A You can make organic liquid feed from comfrey leaves that is ideal for vegetables and flowering plants. Pack the leaves into a container, and cover with water. They rot down to form a black, foul-smelling soup. Dilute with 10-20 parts water and give to plants at every watering in the summer. Q How do I get rid of Japanese knotweed? Laura Oberon, Leeds A It is an offence to plant or otherwise cause the species to grow in the wild in the UK. And even dumping contaminated soil and garden waste at your local tip is a serious risk, so beware! The bamboo-like stems, which emerge each spring, are capable of bursting through tarmac and concrete. These powerful stems…

what you’re wearing

Patricia Wood Tell us about your look… I love a classic, smart tailored look with a modern twist. My coat is from Zara. I was so impressed with the quality and value that I bought a camel coat for my husband from Zara menswear. My check trousers are from M&S. I liked the wide leg cut. My bag and scarf were presents and my husband bought my leather boots. He likes to buy things for me – amazingly they fitted! And the best bit of your body? Being tall and slim. You wore it well Valerie Lucas, 1951 Sent in by her daughter, Pauline Whitwell My dad took this photo of my mum standing outside their honeymoon bungalow. I love how smart and proud the new Mrs Lucas looks in her ‘going away’ outfit, which she would…
