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.

One thing we can learn from our European sisters is that a family society is a welcoming society. Alcohol isn't a big deal, it's on tables from a young age and children are always out with their families, no matter what time of day it is. The family is the unit, the centre of society. And that is something we are so desperately missing.

Beautification was essential for the film festival and I certainly didn't mind being detained at Her Majesty's Pleasure, a chic, glass-fronted beauty parlour with the added bonus of a cafe and bar. I happily sipped on cocktails while my manicure and blowout were expertly executed.

Our Government should follow the French example and send a clear message to restaurant chains that piling pounds into pockets by piling pounds onto waistlines is simply not acceptable, and that action must be taken to ditch the sugary drinks and include fruit-based pudding options. It's time that high street restaurants cleaned up their act and prioritised our children's health.
