I started to feel pressure. Pressure a lot of women feel in their 30s. I felt that I had to be like all my friends. I literally felt my biological clock ticking away loudly in the background. I'm pretty sure some of my boyfriends did too. I became obsessed with finding 'the one'.

If my Dad had broke his leg he'd be sent home in a cast, and we'd have instructions on how he'd get better. We'd be told to help him rest for a few weeks, he'd be told when he could get back to walking, back to running and back to full recovery. We'd be told what medication he was on and when he should take it...

Lamb with Salsa Verde and Crushed Broad Beans

Linda Duffin

I used lamb rump here but you can just as easily use chops or lamb steaks. And there are many variations on salsa verde: tweak and taste until you have something you like. It would be lovely with a handful of wild garlic chopped into it, if you can find some. Swap the tarragon for basil if you prefer it. The important thing is that it's green, herby and pungent.

Does our world of constant connection, instant gratification, with an abundance of choice and information available at just a click away leave us feeling content and satisfied with our lives? I don't think so - it seems as if we're more depressed, stressed and disconnected than ever before.

I have a theory. It's just a small one, but in drawing and sketching so many women - of all kinds of beauty and sexiness (or not so much), I've learned that there is just one thing that makes a woman feel and exude gorgeousness. And that's what she feels about herself. Self love.

I live with a colostomy. This means my colon has been diverted through an opening on the side of my abdomen so that bodily waste can pass into a stoma bag. My stoma is due to bowel cancer but many people undergo surgery for one due to Crohn's and Colitis, childbirth, injury and other conditions.
