My Weekly Latest Issue October 8

Cover of My Weekly latest issue October 8 with Anton du Beke and 7-day meal planner

My Weekly editor Stuart JohnstoneMy daughter has just started at Edinburgh University, where she is studying for a degree and learning how to be an independent adult. A few weeks in and so far, so good – apart from the fact that she takes too many taxis rather than walking or getting the bus. Budgeting, it seems, is a challenge even for the most clever students! I will be pointing her in the direction of our fab money-saving feature from our expert Sue on page 26. It’s packed with great advice and I hope she reads it, for the sake of my bank balance if nothing else! Have a great week.

Stuart Johnstone, Editor

I've worked on a variety of regional newspapers and national magazines. My Weekly and Your Best Ever Christmas are fantastic, warm-hearted brands with an amazing, talented team. I'm a sub-editor and particularly love working on cookery, fiction and advice pages - I feel I should know all the secrets of eternal life, health and happiness by now, but hey, we all need that regular reminder!
