Welcome to your new-look Friday !
Being the editor of Friday has to be one of the best jobs in the world – especially when I get to meet you, the readers. That is what I have been doing for the past few months as I went undercover on a secret mission: to make Friday even better.

I’d like to thank all of you who helped in our research and hope you all love the Friday makeover as much as we do! Let me know what you think,
