Maggi's Relationship Column:
Brother's weight loss

Maggi, can you advise me? My husband and I live in the next street to my brother. He was divorced about 18 months ago and we see him every week. Either he comes to us for a Sunday roast or we share a take away meal at his after we've all been to a football match or the cinema. We've always enjoyed each other's company and he and my husband are really good friends.

His divorce was pretty messy and he doesn't get to see his children much now as his ex manages to keep them busy out of school so there is no space for him. I know he worries about them a lot as they make it clear when they do see him that they're finding it hard to settle with a step-dad figure in their house.

My difficulty is that I don't seem to get my brother to take his health seriously and I think he is unwell.  He is 53 and getting thinner quite fast. I just don't know if that, and his tiredness and lack of energy, is due to sadness, depression and missing his kids or not eating properly, or something more sinister.

I've tried to ask him if there are any other physical problems but he tells me I'm a fusspot and makes a joke of it. He says he's getting 'buff' again to attract all the younger women! I don't see buff, I see gaunt. How can I get him to see he needs to go to his doctor and get a check up at the very least?



Art Masterclass:
Dramatic tension Dynamic still lifes
with Alison Rankin

Falling Apples and Pearl Knife III

I am passionate about still-life painting and place a great emphasis on light, colour and composition. I love conveying the weight and texture of fruit and vegetables, creating a classic and sensuous still-life feel. Textures, shapes and colours are harmoniously combined to elevate the mere domestic to iconic status.
