Close your eyes. Imagine if you will, the aroma of freshly made bread wafting up your nostrils – it's entirely pleasing, isn't it? Yeasty, warming, fragrant as a mother's love. If that sounds a little Proustian, that's because the act of baking – as any baker, amateur or otherwise will tell you – is much more than the sum of its parts, offering an emotional hit every bit as, if not more, nourishing than the nutritional benefits of flour, water, salt and yeast.

It's the classic free-standing tub. You might even have one that looks pretty similar. But this is a Philippe Starck and it costs around £5,000. The Starck 2 was the first contemporary free-standing bathtub. Before this, there was only the Victorian roll-top, which took your bathroom design in a retro direction. But this was double-ended, seamless and very modern. And it became the blueprint for the new, minimalist bathroom style.

January is the gloomiest month of the year. The economic climate and the long dark nights of winter dictate that staying in is the new going out.

If you ask me, having several suitors all vying for your love and attention may sound ideal, but it can be most trying. At present, quite a number of online retailers pursue me relentlessly, the most persistent being Johnnie Boden, king of that place called 'Bodenland' where the women are sassy, the men lean on fireplaces in country pubs and the kids all rockpool companionably instead of beating the shit out of each other for that net on the stick, as my own kids do. (Favourite hobby: "Beating the shit out of my sibling for the net on the stick.")
