My Weekly Latest Issue February 7

My Weekly editor Stuart JohnstoneAs we’re approaching Valentine’s Day we have a sprinkling of romance in this issue, but I can say with confidence that the pages which will lead to the strongest feelings of love and affection this week are pages 22 and 23, because they’re all about chocolate! Yes, it’s the time of year when we love to exchange boxes of chocolate, so we’re taking a fun look at the history of the sweet treat. There’s a welcome morsel of nostalgia too as we remember some of the bars of yesteryear – just looking at the Drifter wrapper is making me hungry! 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!
