Jane Fonda.

Jayne Dawson: The trends for 2017 – and which ones to embrace

Well then, let’s not talk resolutions. Silly things. If resolutions worked we would all have run out of ways to improve ourselves by the age of 30.

Jayne Dawson: It’s a festive tradition – who else is ill for Christmas?

I gave a little snigger when I saw the internet joke about Chris Rea.

Mick Jagger.

Well now, how to say it without being really very personal?

A scene from the 2016 John Lewis Christmas ad.

And we’re off! The adverts are back, therefore the season has begun.

HARD AT WORK: Women have their own agenda in November and it has noting to do with growing fancy stubble.

I expect you blokes think November is all about you.

Oh my, it’s exhausting getting older these days.

RICH GIRL: Tamara Ecclestone has a multi-million pound fortune.

Jayne Dawson: All the money in the world but not enough for a friend

Well what would you do? I mean, it’s not a problem most of us will ever have to grapple with, but just supposing.

BEST YEARS: But a good school doesnt have to be based on selective entry.

Jayne Dawson: My grammar wasn’t a patch on schools today

So here’s a little story. One summer’s day, many lifetimes ago, I climbed up the bankings and made my way home, dragging the toes of my sandals along the path as I went since I was conducting a campaign to be allowed some white plastic ones with heels.

Jayne Dawson: Praise be – it’s safe to put your tights back on now

Jayne Dawson: Sorry, but the Olympics are leaving me flat this time

I think the moment I started to feel a bit weepy was when I switched over to BBC 4. It’s always such a safe haven, isn’t it?

Jayne Dawson: Time to enjoy the absence of everything while it lasts

I’m a late convert to summer. For the longest of times I believed one month was much like another, because what was happening outside the window didn’t really matter.
