What to buy in Lidl – and what to avoid

When Lidl launched in the UK in 1994, a shopping trip was like going abroad. The unfamiliar brands, the Germanic styling, the multilingual labels. It was all so foreign.

I walked off five stone and beat my sugar cravings

It’s the story of so many midlife men. The weight had crept on slowly. I hardly ever weighed myself and when I looked in the mirror I’d pull in my stomach and thought I still looked great.

Between nature and the beach: a fantastic house in the village that Charles Dickens fell in love with

Just 100 kilometres from one of the largest metropolises on the planet – London – we find Broadstairs. This small town of around 20,000 inhabitants has been a tourist attraction since the mid-19th century, thanks to the expansion of the steamship that favoured its connection with London and other large English cities. It attracted the attention of artists, such as the popular writer Charles Dickens, who wrote some of his great works there, which...

A moment that changed me: I was divorced, broke and alone – but I turned my life around with a list

The silence in the flat was deafening. Having lost almost everything in my divorce, it was now just me in a basement studio flat with black mould. I had no TV, no sofa and the wifi wasn’t set up. I sat at a cheap folding table and made a list. Since my life was no longer going to be the way I had planned – marriage, kids, a dog, a late-Victorian terrace in a country town – I was going to try something else. I was going to do all the things on my...

How to beat the big four diseases of ageing

We are living longer than ever before. In 1765, the average lifespan was just 38.8 years, and even by the start of the 1920s, still only 56.
