chat to us!

My husband Bertie sadly left us last year after 67 years together, but what lovely memories I have. One is of us in Phantasialand, Germany, 40 years ago. What a lovely day we had! Pamela Maker, Southsea My rescue dog Pixie is adorable. She's a real sweetheart and loved by everyone. Who can blame them - just look at her! Michelle Hodgson, Norwich When next door threw out an old sofa, me and my best friends thought it'd be a great place to hang out! Here we all are - (L-R) Chloe, Nick, me, Maureen, Amber, Amy and Jordan at the back. Samantha Williams, Dudley I'm a huge fan of the one and only Chesney Hawkes and was thrilled I got to meet him and have a photo taken with him. It was my birthday too…

‘like getting away with murder’

Sue Bryan, 53 Dressed in a pink outfit, my daughter Jchandra, 8, zoomed from one side of the room to another. ‘When I grow up, I’m going to be a racing-car driver!’ she announced. ‘You’re going to tire yourself out,’ I laughed as she dashed around making car noises. But that was Jchandra, my little ‘tom-princess’. Obsessed with cars and sports, but too much of a girlie girl to be a tomboy. Parading around in pretty dresses, playing with Barbies. It was March 2009 and my two sons – Dustin, then 24, and Jerrett, 20 – had moved out. A single mum, it was just me and Jchandra. We were incredibly close. And when I met Duke, 62, when Jchandra was 13, we became a team. ‘If only I could bottle that energy,’ I sighed to Duke as she raced…

Cheers to that! When surprise visitors popped over on a sunny day, I fired up the BBQ. When I realised I was out of burger buns, I toasted some bread and cut them into circles using a wine glass as a template. David Evans, Cardiff I’m a little... feeder! We recycled our old teapot into a bird feeder. My partner made a small roof using leftover painted wood, and I glued the pot sideways onto it. Our feathered friends perch on the spout to stop for a feed. Samantha Bateman, Grimsby Panned out To make extra space in my kitchen cupboards, I've screwed a hook to the inside of the doors and use it to store pans. Kirsty McLean, Hull Nailed it! When removing nail varnish, I use a microfibre cloth. It removes all traces of polish quickly and easily. Sarah…

gone in a heartbeat

Mark Wilcock, 39, Southport Strolling along a country road, pushing our baby Margot in her pram, my wife Katherine, 35, had never looked more beautiful. Dressed simply, in jeans and a blue jacket, it was the happiness that shone from her causing that glow. And I felt exactly the same. ‘Margot’s going to love splashing in the pool,’ Katherine grinned at me. We were flying to Majorca the next day for our very first family holiday. We’d spent the morning packing, before Katherine went for a nap, feeling exhausted. By our afternoon walk she was back to her old self. Cracking jokes, making me laugh. Her dark hair shining in the sun. Katherine and I had become friends in 2008 when we both worked at Edge Hill University. We finally got together in January 2012, and I felt like the luckiest…

who killed baby lollipops?

Back in November 1990, a little boy’s body was found in some bushes on Miami Beach. Just 3 years old, he’d been severely battered. Authorities struggled even to identify him. The boy was so emaciated that he looked skeletal. His right eye was bruised. And he was wearing a soiled nappy and a T-shirt with lollipops on. As police desperately tried to find his parents, he became known as Baby Lollipops. A post-mortem revealed that the tragic tot had died from a fractured skull. But it also showed that there was evidence of more sustained abuse and neglect. The boy had a cigarette burn on his left cheek. Broken teeth and bones. His tiny body was covered in bedsores. Beatings had torn away the tissue between his lips and gums, making eating, drinking and talking painful. His left arm was permanently bent…
