1. Do you have to work today? Take the rest of the day off – just absquatulate if you have to – and go see Love Actually. Much better than any stock tip I could offer.

3. Mark Kennet: ‘I’ll see your pomegranate and raise you one cherimoya. As anyone who has had the good fortune to spend any time in South America knows, this fruit is like a rich ice cream that grows on a tree. It is almost enough to overcome the despair over the political situation.’
