… new pyjamas. Just because you’re exhausted doesn’t mean there’s any excuse for wearing some stinky old free t-shirt and some not-for-best pants to bed. There’s no need for slinky lingerie – I love my Bodas shortie pyjamas. I’ve got some in light blue but I have recently also been eyeing up this pair. Not cheap at £88 for the set, but worth it. Night night.

… Black Sails on the Starz channel if you have Sky (I think it’s channel 371) on Saturday night or on Amazon Prime on Sunday night. Black Sails is probably my favourite TV programme ever made – I am not exaggerating – and we’re into Series 3, so if you haven’t seen 1 & 2 I am SO ENVIOUS that you get to binge-watch them. It’s hot and incredibly rude and dirty, but also smart and gripping. It’s like Game of Thrones with pirates, but better than Game of Thrones… because it’s about PIRATES!!!

Toby Stephens as Captain Flint and Tom Hopper as Billy Bones. Love. Love. Love.

Zach McGowan as Charles Vane. Ultimate bad boy! My dream man – if you’re not sectionably psychotic, I’m not interested.

Start thinking about…

… your summer holidays. Literally this weekend, sit down with whoever you’ve got to go on holiday with and MAKE A PLAN or you will be left with no summer holiday, like I was last year. For families I hear good things about a) the Abama in the Canary Islands and b) Ile de Re in France. Ask me no more questions about it than that, as I will be busy this weekend going slightly doo-lally trying to book mine.

We’re all going on a summer holiday! Well you’re not, unless you book it soon…
