My Weekly Latest Issue May 4

My Weekly editor Stuart JohnstoneMy daughter made an interesting observation the other day. She said life is about expectations. When she started uni, she looked forward to nightclubs and parties. Now, three lockdowns later, she can’t wait to take her laptop to study in a cafe with a nice latte! It made me think about just how different things are now, and we’re getting ready for our changed world by answering some of your burning post-Covid questions this week (p32). Of course, one upshot of restrictions easing is we can now have lots more fun, so we’ve got that covered on every page, too!

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!
