'Falling in love again... never wanted to... what am I to do... can't help it." Maybe I am finally getting the hang of it. I managed to fall in love, do nothing about it, and forget about her all in the one day, thus obviating the need for all of those messy break-up emotions.

I recently travelled on Aeroflot and it's like taking a trip back in a time before Michael O'Leary threatened to charge us by weight.

I have always had a sneaking regard for his concept - and more than a sneaking regard when placed beside a 20-something stone male who has no shame about fitting an extension to his already generous seat belt. I am all for fat shaming. There are times in life when I wish someone had shamed me. My mood for the day is set by the weighing scales. It may as well talk.
