I took her to Carousel, which is in Marylebone, and run by four impossibly beautiful young cousins. 'We could do something,' I pointed out to my sister. 'Some kind of family business.'

My little sister recently ate at a Michelin starred restaurant. 'How was it?' I asked, when she returned. 'Excellent,' she said. 'But I'm starving.' I then watched as she polished off two chicken and mushroom pot noodles, and quickly moved the steak I was saving to the very back of our fridge.

In 2016, I will be continuing to trundle along much as I did in 2015. I will face the cold, and the gloom, and the irritation of other people's New Year's Resolutions with humour, and forbearance and wine. Lots of wine. In fact, I might just pop back into Enoteca Rabezzana, which is an Italian wine and tapas bar in the Barbican.
