A frequent source of joshing between my boyfriend and me is the fact that I was breast-fed and he was not.

While we don't expect Britain to top the medal table at the Olympic Games, winter or summer, you'd have thought we'd have a good chance at the Couch Potato Olympics, a contest devised by thedailybeast.com to find the slobbiest nations around. They evaluated 24 countries using four criteria – calorie intake per day; television viewing; aversion to playing sports; and internet usage – but Britain only managed fifth overall, though we did pick up silver in the sports aversion category. Winners by a street were North America, with the US first (two golds, two bronzes) and Canada second (one gold). Plucky little Belgium, buoyed by their diet of mussels and mayo-slathered chips, pipped Turkey for third. Beers all round; Belgian, of course.
