Having trouble sleeping? I've given one of my favourite sleep tips in today's Express newspaper - definitely don't let the sun go down on your anger otherwise you're guaranteed to toss and turn. So if you've had a row with your other half - even if you can’t solve the situation that evening - tell each other you love each other and will make time the next day to work things through.
Believe me, whenever the hubby and I have a disagreement in the evening we tend to gently tease each other - probably about the silliness of the disagreement - break the tension and never go to bed angry.
Have some hot and steamy sex tips in today's Daily Star newspaper - guaranteed to heat up the cold Christmas that’s on its way.
Over at the Apprentice - finally Lord Sugar saw through Stuart Baggs's grandiose claims about himself. How come it took him so long?? I'm cheering Stella on - about six weeks ago I pointed out in the Express newspaper how Lord Sugar had an obvious soft spot for her - based on his body language and facial expressions around her...hmm, maybe there was something in my analysis.
The gorgeous Gwyneth Paltrow does it again - don't see her for months on end and then she comes back looking like a sex siren - did you see the pix of her today? Slinky white evening gowns led up to her armpits. Last time around she 'came back' in 8 inch black heels with a 4 inch long miniskirt on.
Surprise, surprise so Hugh Grant’s comforting Liz Hurley - she's in turmoil as her marriage breaks up and she starts a red-hot affair with Shane Warne... Why don't those two just get back together again?
TODAY’S THOUGHT: the problem is he’s become her emotional comfort blanket - once you become a ‘comfort buddy’ it's hard to go back to the role of boyfriend.
There's nothing wrong with that - in fact doesn't everyone need a comfort buddy in their life who they can turn to in times of trouble? Definitely - and that's a good thing as long as you don't only go to them when you're in trouble - they should share your happy times too.
Another thing - somehow Liz and Hugh have managed over a decade of friendship after he broke her heart in the mid-90s. A lot of women would’ve just moved on from a love rat - but she forgave him and the rest is history. Having come across couples like that in my work I often find they’re actually two peas in a pod - with personalities so similar they work well as friends - often much better than as lovers.
Finding Arcade Fire’s The Suburbs a strangely perfect antidote to pre-Christmas stress... and I always have to remind myself that they’re Canadian not American. Maybe there are more similarities between the two countries than we believe. Highly recommend!
