My Weekly editor Stuart JohnstoneWell, that’s January out of the way, and I don’t know about you, but I’m very happy to see the slow lengthening of the days and ever-so-slightly lighter mornings creeping in. That said, I still have a woolly jumper on as I type, so I know we’re not out of the winter woods yet! What is undoubtedly bright and cheery is this week’s issue of your magazine. It’s packed with compelling stories, creative cookery, news and interviews, and much more. It’s the perfect distraction while we wait for the sun to put in a more regular appearance! Enjoy the issue and have a great week.

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!
