picture perfect

Here I am (left) with my friend Lucinda, 21. We love all things Halloween, especially pumpkins, and just had to have our photo taken in Nottingham city centre last year. Lucy Hill, Halifax I dressed up my daughters Claudia, 5, and Charlotte, 1, as Pennywise the clown and little Georgie from It . This is my favourite time of year! Rachel Brenchley, Sheffield Me and my husband Jamie love dressing up, especially for Halloween. Here I am as a zombie pirate and Jamie wanted to be a nurse version of the Joker! Amanda Stewart, Carluke My fiance Gareth, 36, works in a restaurant, and here are the fiendishly good cakes he made. Doesn't he look terrifying? Karen Hobson, Sheffield I dressed up as a mermaid a couple of years ago. Not very spooky, but I loved the look! Eliana…

he’s stolen my baby!

Scrolling through Facebook, my heart sank. Looks fun! I thought, clicking ‘like’ on silly selfies in nightclub loos, pics of pals in beer gardens. I used to post things like that, too. Before I met Paul, 27... It was May 2014 and I couldn’t believe how much had changed in the few months since me and Paul had got together. To begin with, he’d been thoughtful and protective. Even taken on my little boy, just 6 weeks old. My mum had been worried. ‘He’s not right for you,’ she warned me. Yes, Paul was a few years older, a bit rough and ready. He thought that I’d slept with the doctor ‘But he looks after me,’ I told Mum. Now I realised she’d been right. What I’d thought was kindness revealed itself to be something else. Control. Before I knew it, Paul had moved in with…

just genius

Bright idea Crochet blankets make a wonderfully colourful change from net curtains – and they let the light through nicely. Frances Rutherford, Southbourne Serpently scary..! My kids loved the creepy juice holders I made using a bag of 20 plastic snakes from the pound shop. Just wrap them around a bottle – spookily simple! Demi Roberts, Llanbedr Clever Mummy! Glue the pages of an old book together, then cut a hole through the cover and into the pages. Spray paint the cover black, and pop a ghoulish decoration into the hole inside the book, to peep out through the cover for a 3D Halloween handicraft! India Room, Nantwich Glamping! My daughter gave her boring, cream lampshade a glamorous makeover. She painted it silver and added some pretty beads she bought from a craft shop. Helen Horry, Plumstead Tasseltastic The tasselled scarves I liked…

just like his big brother

Watching my lot race around the garden, I winced. ‘Careful!’ I laughed, in spite of myself, as the boys rugby tackled each other. It was August 1998, and I was already a mum of seven. He opened up now and then, but I could tell he was down My partner Andrew and I hadn’t planned on having so many, but Tammy, then 10; David, 8; Stephen, 6; Kirsty, 5; Leon, 4; James, 2, and Kevin, 1, came along one after another. There was never a moment of peace, yet ours was a house full of fun. Then, in December 2006, Andrew, 44, died of a heart attack. I was devastated. But I muddled on through the grief and, as the children reached adulthood, we grew closer than ever. By 2016, David, then 26, had moved in with his girlfriend…

with her dying breath...

On 2 February 2013, Anene Booysen was due home by 1am. She was at a local pub just 10 minutes’ walk from her home in Bredasdorp, near Cape Town, South Africa, so her foster mother, Corlia Olivier, 40, had said she could stay out late. The venue was a hotspot for local youngsters. Yet Anene, 17, never made it home. At 5am the next day, as a security guard arrived for work at a local building site, he found her, beaten and mutilated, her intestines spilling out. She was conscious, but in agony. Near death. The emergency services were called. And when neighbours knocked to tell Corlia that a young woman had been found brutally injured, she raced to the scene. The moment she saw the teenager’s trainers sticking out from underneath the sheet she’d been covered in,…
