When she’s starring alongside Sandra Bullock in Ocean’s 8 or rapping about her vagina on YouTube, she’s Awkwafina. But at home she’ll always be Nora Lum from Queens The front desk clerk at the Beverly Hills Hotel is polite but puzzled. “Nora Lum? No, we have no one staying here of that name.” How about Awkwafina, I ask, spelling it out for him. He looks at me as though he thinks I might be messing with him. “Sorry, madam,” – is that a note of relief in his voice? – “no one of that name either.” I reach for my phone, but then I have an idea. Sandra Bullock? Suddenly I have the attention of all three front desk clerks. “This way, madam.” “Who the fuck is Awkwafina? That’s everyone’s reaction,” laughs Nora Lum/Awkwafina (pronounced Aquafina) when I eventually find her. She and Bullock – or “Sandy” as Lum affectionately calls her – are both holding court at the hotel today to discuss their new movie

Dad raised 11 kids alone. How will I cope with one?41h Dad raised 11 kids alone. How will I cope with one?
Seamas O’Reilly’s father brought up a huge brood of children on his own. He also built their house and filled it with love, laughter and DIY catalogues. So how does that make Seamas feel now that he’s about to become a dad? Many’s the Father’s Day my dad awoke to the sound of soft padding at the carpet outside his room, and the doorknob stiffly turning as we emerged. In actual fact, no; he would have woken one hour earlier, to small, quick feet scurrying through the hall and to the kitchen, where his special breakfast was prepared. In that thick way of children, we had mastered the art of whispering louder than we spoke, and a cacophony of hushed screams, frantic scribbling and battered saucepans resounded through the building, masked only by the steady clatter of moderately serious trips and falls, themselves so common in our house as to have become white noise. I imagine my father sitting up in bed with a book set aside for the purpose, studiously ignoring the fights breaking out among the grubby little servers now traipsing down the hall, pushing a battered little tea trolley towards his door. This last contraption, dating from the mid-Triassic, was three turns of a screw away from being shrapnel, and sported thick brass wheels which, even on the plush, brown carpet of our hall, made a noise like the Eiffel Tower being folded into a quarry. The children unloaded like the freckled contents of a rural Irish clown car

The quiet, unpretentious San Buenaventura is only an hour from Malibu – but a world apart The San Buenaventura state beach is all but empty of sunbathers. The only bodies on display are the ones at Surfers Point, where a constant churn of frothy white peaks keeps them bobbing aloft on their distant boards. From there, the sands sweep south to infinity, or at least to the neighbouring town of Oxnard. It’s a 10-mile stretch of southern Californian coastline, less than an hour’s drive from Malibu, and there’s not a celebrity tan in sight.

A newborn foal still unsteady on its feet staggers close to its mother. The hedges are full of feral lilacs and fragrant

When teenagers start smoking a spliff near his kids, Nikesh faces a dilemma I remember the exact moment I became the “Hey guys, guys, come on guys, I used to be just like you guys, guys, but come on, this isn’t cool, guys” dad. He’s worse than strict dad, boring dad or “Can I join in?” dad. He’s the dad who wants you to know that he used to be a young rapscallion, who did slightly naughty things, but now he’s a dad and, much as it pains him, he has to tell you that this just ain’t cool guys. A sweltering Thursday afternoon finds me in the park with my kids. We’re lucky to still have the park, as it happens. Last year Bristol council threatened to slash its parks budget. But it backtracked, and so here we are, heading to the paddling pool with swimming costumes, watering cans and a float. Our park has a curious but useful design in that a fence marks out a clear family area. The rest of the park is a free-for-all for circus artists, bad acoustic guitar and teenagers doing whatever teenagers do in the park. Hey guys, can you smoke your weed somewhere else?

A quick note to say… thank you to my grandmother for being formidable42h A quick note to say… thank you to my grandmother for being formidable
Helga Butcher, aged 53, says her late grandmother, a single parent of five children, who ran her own business, is still her role model My grandmother was a formidable woman: she raised five children on her own, ran a haulage business and was always impeccably dressed and completely composed. I imagine many people thought of her as a bit remote and formal, and she wasn’t the sort of grandmother who gets down on the floor to play with you: but her formality was her way of coping with all she had to deal with. She was my role model for how I wanted to live my life: she showed me the way. She was feisty, confident and calm; and she had a very strong work ethic, she ran her business into her 80s. She loved clothes and she loved looking good.

Hours I spent, whole ironed-out hours – time would go very slowly and then very fast and suddenly it was 5pm – in the changing rooms of a selection of high-street shops, trying on swimming costumes. I was going to Center Parcs on the Monday you see (by the time this is published I will have enjoyed a week with three generations of my partner’s family under its magical dome), and had been wearing the same bikini since I was 18.

The catwalk king has moved to Mallorca to concentrate on designing not clothes – but homes Three years ago the fashion designer Matthew Williamson quietly moved to Mallorca, closed his shops and began to wind down the fashion arm of his brand. There was no grand finale catwalk show or overblown press release, simply an absence from the 2016 London Fashion Week programme and an announcement that he was moving to online sales only. Such a restructuring wasn’t that unusual at the time: catwalk shows were widely agreed to be losing their allure, and sales in bricks and mortar shops were dipping. And yet, such was the absence of accompanying fanfare, no one in fashion thought for a minute this might mean no more dresses from a luminary renowned for what US
