This really is a magazine to warm the heart, a collection of everyday adventures and tales of little importance to make readers smile. There is a little bit of everything, none of which stays particularly consistent, making this magazine a lot like a lovely insightful conversation over a cuppa. All the articles by and about the people are illustrated with little graphics and some gorgeous photography, and there are plenty of music and fashion suggestions to be getting on with. There articles themselves are all beautifully written and range from music, film and crafts to society, art, auctions and those unanswerable questions we like to discuss every now and again.

Personally, I absolutely adore this kind of magazine. About nothing in particular, but every article is as important and relevant as the last. I love pondering calming over the whimsical nature of life, death and everything in between. The text is very conversational and relatable, in fact in this particular issue they tell readers how to brew mustard in the airing cupboard, and it is like a good friend is writing it all down on a napkin. I think it is good to focus in the non-materialistic things in life and the things that make us contented on a day to day basis.
Recently I’ve noticed a huge rise in ambition in society correlate with an increase in disappointment. Sixty years ago the ambition was to be contented and happy, not rich and successful. My mother often says that the last person she knew to be truly content with his lot was my Grandfather, a farmer who was born and died in Wiltshire. He never went further than Wales in his life and spent his days working fiercely hard on his farm, building a loving family and a small but sturdy network of friends. He didn’t want or need anything more than what he had, and he considered himself more successful than the richest banker in London. We innately know happiness is a good thing, so I think we should strive for the little things that make us and others smile.
