On arrival we were greeted by Cynthia O'Hara. The resort has been owned by the O'Hara family for over half a century and it maintains a friendly family atmosphere and a refined and personal service. Cynthia's love of nature is reflected in the fact that the rooms have names such as bougainvillea, gerbera and orchid rather than numbers.

Supper Clubs have revolutionised London's dining scene: rather than cooking in a restaurant, enterprising chefs host in their homes, where, without the risks and overheads of a restaurant, they tend toward the experimental, with food that you'd be hard-pressed to find elsewhere.

It seems a lot of women are unaware that they are born with all of their eggs and as time goes on this supply eventually runs out, there is a marked decrease in ovulation by the time a woman reaches 35 as the body clings to the reserves of its egg supply. Women are delaying starting a family until much later in life, our parents generation had children in their 20's, which today we consider to be very young to start a family.

Thoughts as My Partner Bertie Rows Across the Atlantic

I remember the time when my partner, actor Robert Portal, aka Bertie, told me he was planning to row the Atlantic for charity. How could I forget? It was our first date and to be honest, although I was suitably impressed, I was more concerned with fluttering my eyelashes at him across the table. Little did I know what an enormous impact this man, his plans and the charity would have on my future. To say being at home while your partner rows the Atlantic is easy would be lying. Some days are better than others as we watch Patience the boat's little tracker line move slowly across the Atlantic.
