Remember the singleton from 1996? That lovable character who listened to Sad FM alone with only a cube of cheese left in her refrigerator. She was plagued by a daily battle to lose weight, give up alcohol and most of all avoid Daniel Cleaver. We fell in love with her when we read the book and then again when Renee Zellweger portrayed her on screen. She was our heroine. But, lately, she has been rather quiet. So what has she been up to?

11.27 p.m. Just presss d SEND. Iss fineisn’t it?
You see, this is the trouble with the modern world. If it was the days of letter-writing, I would never even have started to find his address, a pen, a piece of paper, an envelope, a stamp, and gone outside at 11.30p.m. to find a postbox. A text is gone at the brush of a fingertip, like a nuclear bomb or exocet missile.
DATING RULE NO:1
DO NOT TEXT WHEN DRUNK

It’s going to be a long wait until October.
