Helen Hokin: I’m considering relocating to Barbados. I could swap my reindeer onesie for a designer one-piece and save on heating bills without the hassle of switching suppliers every other month.

Summer's off to a great start as my book 'Ten Minute Tapas' is voted Book of the Month by Healthy Food Guide Magazine.
