welcome to this week’s chat...

When Gemma sat down to watch a true crime TV show, what she saw gave her a fright – and landed her boyfriend in jail (p12). Catherine’s story will infuriate anyone who’s looking after an elderly parent. Now she’s fighting for a law in her late dad’s name (p42). And when Lisa’s marriage hit breaking point, she gave her hubby a surprising ultimatum (p31). We’re all about keeping it simple this week, with a round-up of cool statement T-shirts (p14) and fake tan that’s cheap and foolproof (p39). Not forgetting the prize puzzles that you love, plus a chance to win a trip to Paris (p28). Ooh la la!…

chat to us!

I adore this photo of my twins Eadie and Felix, 5, enjoying the splash pool during our holiday to Majorca. They're the best of friends! Shelly Wenn, King’s Lynn I think my daughter Rosie, 6, looked lovely at the Blenheim Palace flower show. Sadly, the carousel was just for show! Jo Hoskin, Wallingford I p-p-picked up a friendly penguin on a recent trip to the sea-life centre. He must have known that it was my birthday and wanted to wish me many flappy returns! Shannon Workman, Birmingham Our dog Peggy wanted to make sure we didn't forget her while we were packing for our holiday! Jay Arrowsmith, Daventry I don't think this fella was very keen on sharing his seat with me on my recent holiday to Singapore! Carol McClymont, Newport My son Rory, 3, learnt that you never know…

his first steps were his last

Chantal Kingswood, 39, Brighton Smiling, I watched my 14-month-old Reggie open and close the cabinet drawers. ‘Having fun there, mister?’ I cooed. He found it hilarious. Far more exciting than all the bright, noisy toys we’d bought him. Next he spotted his grandfather’s glasses case. ‘Here we go again, Grandad,’ I laughed to my 34-year-old partner Adam’s dad Arthur, 65. ‘Let’s see if he walks this time,’ Arthur replied. For weeks Reggie had been pulling himself up to standing, cruising round the furniture. Was today the day he’d finally take his first steps? Reggie suddenly looked at me, cautious – yet determined. Lifted his leg – and took a step forward. Then another. And as he waddled towards his grandad, we cheered him on. ‘Well done, Reggie,’ I clapped as he reached the sofa. Reggie gave me a big smile, handing me the glasses…

On tape I kept losing my tweezers and nail clippers in my bathroom cabinet, so I attached some magnetic tape to them as well as to the inside of the cabinet door. Now they're attached, I can find them instantly! Leeanne Maginn, Derry Happy birds I reused an old shower soap holder as a bird feeder in my garden. The birds love it! Joy Crothers, Norwich Colour code Coloured rubber bands will store interdental brushes on toothbrushes and help to tell brushes apart Helen Cameron, London Looking sharp If your favourite T-shirt is looking a bit bobbly just gently run a razor over it to give it a new lease of life. Just watch your fingers! Tamara Edgerton, Edinburgh Face it I got creative while recycling my plastic milk bottles. You can put plants in them, or even make a hanging planter. It's…

‘that could be me’

Gemma Marshall, 40, Middlesbrough Handing my boyfriend Christopher, 36, a cuppa, my hands were shaking. It was July 2018, and he’d been moody all evening. My heart was in my mouth as he took a gulp, pulled a face. ‘Are there three sugars in this?’ he spat. ‘Nnnno,’ I stuttered. In spring 2017, Christopher hit me for the first time ‘There better not be,’ he boomed furiously. But my whole body was trembling. I knew just what was coming. Sure enough, Christopher put down his tea and grabbed my arm. He punched me hard in the face. I felt the room spin and I fell to the floor. ‘Stop, please!’ I cried, as he kicked me repeatedly in the right leg. Pain shot through me. I tried to push myself up with my hands, but he was standing over me, punching my head and…

stolen by the devil?

Vadym Kholodenko was a man used to making headlines. The Ukrainian was a world-renowned, award-winning concert pianist. Critics described his performances as ‘mesmerising and exhilarating’. He brought crowds to their feet, they cheered him as if he was a rock star. But, on 17 March 2016, the famed pianist hit the headlines for the most tragic of reasons. He arrived as planned at the Texas home of his estranged wife Sofya Tsygankova to take their daughters, Nika, 5, and Michela, 20 months, to nursery. Instead, he stumbled across a horrific scene. His daughters were dead and Sofya was in a distraught state, rocking back and forth in the cupboard of the master bedroom, covered in blood from multiple stab wounds, and mumbling in Russian. Vadym called the police and Sofya was rushed to hospital, where it didn’t…
