Irish Daily Mail - YOU - - CONTENTS -

There are a lot of what we call ‘Tilly Ti­dies’ in my fam­ily – you know, the kind of peo­ple who wipe up tiny marks as they hap­pen, who iron their bed linen and tow­els, and have glasses so sparkling they could blind you on a sunny day. My mother and aunt are two who spring im­me­di­ately to mind. It’s safe to say I’m not one of them. I can han­dle glass rings on a ta­ble for days on end be­fore I’ll give them a quick wipe, my draw­ers and wardrobes are crammed with stuff that hasn’t been folded since the day I brought them home from the shop, and I don’t know how to get red wine stains out of a car­pet. I’m not messy, I’m just not fussy. Ev­ery now and again, I’ll hear good hacks for how to clean things or a handy tip for keep­ing things tidy and I’ll think, that’s a good idea, but I rarely im­ple­ment it. But then I came across MARY BERRY’S new book Mary’s House­hold Tips & Tricks (page 19) and there’s so much good ad­vice. I’ve started try­ing some of them and, while I’ll never be a Tilly Tidy, I’m def­i­nitely en­joy­ing hav­ing a cleaner house! Also in this is­sue is the won­der­ful DENISE VAN OUTEN, who will soon be grac­ing our screens on Ire­land’s Got Tal­ent (page 10), as well as the chefs from Lon­don’s fa­mous CLAR­IDGE’S with their tasty teatime recipes (page 40). And don’t miss the chance to win our Lust List prize (page 6) or a Bel­lami­anta ham­per (page 14). En­joy!
