Last and Definitely Least

Until recently the priorities in my husband’s life were:

1. his woman business partner
2. the cat
3. the dog
4. our daughter
5. my mother
6. me

Clear As Mud

Nine in ten of us have up to £1,000-worth of unused items in our homes, while one in three has enough clutter to fill an average-sized bedroom, with a third of Britons still hanging on to VHS and tape cassettes. Women tend to feel guilty about ditching clutter, while men become nostalgic when having a clear-out.
