Gardening is not for everyone. While there are millions of us who love to grub around at weekends, transplanting seedlings, weeding veg beds and pruning over-enthusiastic shrubs, there are millions more who look out of the window, shrug and return happily to the sofa.

Some people obsess about their weekends. They jealously guard their time, refusing to make plans or commit anything to the diary because they're so focussed on their desire to chill and take it easy.

New London Brunch Options

The weekend brunch. Giving us carte blanche to booze before midday and eat a billion, béchamel-laden calories. I'm sure there are some that think this mid-way meal a waste of time and money, but they are deranged.

Sure you can buy a version of these fiery bites from the supermarket and stick them in the oven, but seriously, these are so much better, cheaper and you'll know exactly what's in them. This recipe makes 18, which would be just enough for me on my own - they're really that good.

Deep within Lake Geneva flows the distinct body of water that is the river Rhone. It takes an extraordinary ten years for the river to move through the bow-shaped lake and pour like liquid from a jug down the map of France to the Mediterranean.

If a minibreak is on the cards this Easter weekend or beyond, why investigate a trip to Geneva or Lausanne? Geneva is perfect for a long weekend shopping with the girls, while Lausanne is better suited for a romantic getaway.
