A common side effect of spending so much time in hospital waiting rooms and chemo suites is that one reads at an inordinate number of fashion magazines. Inevitably, they just make me want things.

So, this week I’m trying not to look at fashion magazines. Instead I am looking at fashion websites. I can’t help it. I adore beautiful clothes. I keep returning to to lust after collections by Stine Goya and Sophie Gittins. I need just £744 to acquire the midnight blue silk dress with tassel and the green peep-toe boots. So only seven more weeks on the dole! (Or rather, as it is now re-named, Employment and Support Allowance.)
