'Tis the season for fake-drinking: how go booze-free without being noticed

I used to think it was funny to call people out for not drinking. It was a game – I’d cheekily comment ‘Oooh are you pregnant?’ and judge the reaction to see if I was right. It wasn’t until I was trying to hide my early pregnancy that I realised how annoying and inappropriate I had been. Not clever, as I’d thought. Just immature. I’m now 14 weeks pregnant and was both thrilled and relieved to announce this news last week. No more hiding my morning sickness, all-day tiredness, growing…

The result brought to an end a run of 20 successive victories in all competitions and was their first loss in 29 matches stretching back to April. With top spot in the group already assured, it mattered little in terms of the Champions League but it was hardly ideal preparation for Sunday’s derby trip to…

A short list of foolproof pick-up lines for the party season

 One of the enduring memories of my twenties – aside from the crushing acceptance that fake tan is bad and the similarly devastating realisation that I probably wouldn’t get to marry Colin Farrell – is the excitement I felt each year as “Christmas party season” arrived. Within the space of a few weeks, the calendar would cram full of Christmas functions, from the film industry drinks where leftover “swag” (Crazy Stupid Love gardening tools, anyone?) was distributed with an enthusiasm approaching St Nick’s, to the music biz bacchanal, to the various…
