Harriet Walker: 'My form of Christmas spirit isn’t terribly welcome in East Sussex;

I'm normally a stickler for not getting into the festive swing of things until I'm drunk on Christmas Eve and on the cusp of crying at practically anything. By then I'm usually surrounded by people I was at school with, and my London tough girl act has slipped as much as my make-up. "Whaddayou mean you'll buy me a drink?" I blub at faces I dimly recall laughing at me as I fruitlessly tried to whack a rounders ball back to them 10 years ago. "Whaddayou mean a bottle of wine is only four pounds?" I wail. "Let me buy you one!" And so on.

Harriet Walker: To tattoo, or not to tattoo?

British summertime, and the great unveiling of flesh begins. Some of us have bits we'd prefer the sun never shone on – hairy legs and backs, a tendency to paunchiness perhaps – where others are happy for the world and his wife to plunder the innermost recesses of their troubled psyches. We walk down the street reading their life stories on their forearms, shoulder blades and lower backs.

Liz Hoggard: Revenge of the life-savvy over-40s

My name is Liz. I've no idea what a podcast is. I've lost days in cyberspace trying to upload photos. So it made me roar with laughter when I heard that Trivial Pursuit are planning a new online experiment next month. The Battle of the Generations – which will pit the under-30 "tech-savvy" crowd against the over-30 "life-savvy" set – is positively Corinthian.
