in the footsteps of rex

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…

gardeners’ questions

Japanese knotweed 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.

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…
