A saggy togs story Back in the 1950s, when she was a teenager, my mum knitted a woollen swimsuit from a pattern in Woman’s Weekly. She was thrilled with the result until she actually wore it into the water, when sadly its performance was, as one might say, suboptimal.

3 jobs to do in the garden

1 Support tall perennials Lofty plants like hollyhocks, delphiniums and penstemons will benefit from being loosely staked, especially if your garden is on an exposed site. 2 Deadhead roses Encourage repeat-flowering roses to bloom all summer by deadheading old flowers. At the end of summer, leave seed heads and hips for birds to eat. 3 Water houseplants With hot summer temperatures and increased levels of light, it’s important to water your houseplants more frequently, keeping their soil moist but not waterlogged.…

what you’re wearing

SUE CLARKE, 68 Tell us about your look I like to coordinate my clothes and accessories. This denim jacket is M&Co, my top is John Lewis, my jeans are Levi’s and trainers by Skechers. My scarf is from a large collection that I mix and match depending on what I’m wearing. During lockdown, I let my natural grey hair grow out. I think I’ll stick with it too. And the best bit of your body? My arms, shoulders and neck. JACQUI BERRY, 56 Tell us about your look I would describe my style as classic with a fashionable twist. I adore wearing a dress and this one is from Bonmarché. I love the colour and it’s so easy to wear. My sandals are Lotus and the bag was a gift. I love an elegant look with heels…

I think they have very cleverly opened it up for me. As these last couple of months have gone by, I can tell they’re writing it for me now, and I have some input.
