Those magical Centre Court tickets were rather easier for some to procure than for others. Being Scottish helped, naturally: there was Alex Salmond, Scotland’s First Minister. Multiple Olympic gold medalist Sir Chris Hoy had a seat, as did the star of ‘The 300’, actor Gerard Butler. The latter had somehow colour co-ordinated his grey jacket with a non-Scot on his right, Hollywood idol Bradley Cooper, which perhaps explains the pair’s smug, sunglassed selfie, captured for posterity on Twitter.

I've been to two weddings already this year and can't actually recall what I ate at either of them," says bride-to-be Melissa Williams. "I think it might have been chicken or it could have been fish. All I know is, it was a bit dry, a bit cold and instantly forgettable."

Most women my age don't like the word feminism and don't choose to identify as feminists. I know this because I have spoken to many women born in the Seventies and Eighties over the past couple of years as research for my book, The Noughtie Girl's Guide To Feminism, which is published today. In fact "I'm not a feminist but..." has been one of the most frequent refrains I've heard, with women then going on to tell me they are in favour of equal pay for women who do the same jobs as men, better paternity leave so that men and women can share childcare, and more sharing of domestic chores. But they don't want to be dictated to as to what they can and can't wear and they don't hate men. Some are not in favour of abortion. Some want to change their name when they get married and believe that not just name-changing but marriage itself is something feminism does not want them to do. How can they be feminists, they have asked, if they want these things?

We are just emerging from the longest Christmas holiday anyone can remember, and it's not only waistbands that have expanded. On a drive through Britain last week, every lane had piles of smelly black sacks and ranks of over-stuffed wheelie bins. We might have sent fewer cards, but we didn't make less trash.
