I’ve recently become ‘suddenly single’ to quote the wonderful Helen Fielding; this means that instead of cooking for three, myself, my husband and our house-mate, I’m suddenly cooking for one. That said, a single place setting is not, for me, about being alone, and it’s definitely not about being lonely. Instead it’s about still setting a place for dinner for one, and treating yourself as your honoured guest (sometimes honoured guests are allowed to curl up on the sofa with a bowl of risotto instead of eating at the table right?).

This will be about food and exercise and yoga and being single and being child free; eventually it might even be about trying dating for the first time in 17 years, or the first time at all depending on how you look at it.
