5.30am Iwake­u­pat5am on week­days, so on Satur­days

I have a half-hour lie-in. I’m wo­ken up by my trusty teas­made, which I’ve had for 40 years. Its bub­bling is the only thing that re­li­ably wakes me up. I like Waitrose English break­fast tea, and then I shower be­fore do­ing my back ex­er­cises. I al­ways have toast for break­fast, usu­ally Gail’s rye sour­dough with Mar­mite. 8am I have a dou­ble es­presso and drive to C Lidgate butcher’s in Hol­land Park. They make the best chicken sausages. Then on to Marks & Spencer’s food hall to buy my fruit and veg. 9am I get to work and have my hair washed and blow-dried. I think it’s im­por­tant to look the part – I also have my nails done ev­ery week. Then I change into my work uni­form, a black Eileen Fisher tu­nic and trousers. Satur­day is a very chilled day as the clients are of­ten busi­ness peo­ple, who can’t get in dur­ing the week. 1pm I work un­til early af­ter­noon The and then I’ll meet a friend for lunch. We’ll go to Il Baretto, an Ital­ian res­tau­rant on Bland­ford Street. I al­ways eat salad for lunch as I don’t like heavy meals. 2pm Af­ter lunch, I drive home to North­wood, and on the way I go to Smith’s Gar­den Cen­tre in Den­ham.

I am ad­dicted to gar­den­ing and have com­pletely re­designed my daugh­ter Joanna’s. She has banned me from buy­ing any­thing from the Chelsea Flower Show as there’s no room left in my own gar­den. 6pm

I never go out on a Satur­day night as I can’t bear the crowds. Of­ten my son David and his girl­friend, or Joanna and my two grand­daugh­ters, who are 11 and 13, come round. We don’t re­ally watch tele­vi­sion, so we of­ten just talk as a fam­ily. I al­ways read the Satur­day Tele­graph from front to back, it’s my bi­ble.

8.30pm We’ll cook some­thing sim­ple like a prawn stir-fry or chicken with broc­coli and I like to have a glass of red wine be­fore din­ner. 10.30pm I put ev­ery­thing in the dish­washer and then use my old-fash­ioned cream, Crem­ine, and a warm flan­nel to clean my face. I have been us­ing it for as long as I can re­mem­ber. Then I’ll get into bed – my bed li­nen is from The White Com­pany – and fall straight to sleep.
