picture perfect

Me, my husband, Matt, and our two boys, Oliver, 5, and Lucas, 3 months, all had a great time when we went on a trip strawberry picking during lockdown. Kate Anderson, Dawlish Here’s a picture of my dog Saffron waiting for a copy of her favourite magazine. I wonder how many others have kept their Chat clipboards — mine must be over 20 years old now!

stolen happiness

Vicky Bassett, 44 Arriving home from school, I headed upstairs to my room and curled up in bed with a Roald Dahl book. It was 1982 and I was just 6 years old. Nobody asked how my day was, what I wanted for tea. See, my family had never been close. No days out or holidays. Playing games with my siblings was a rare event. And my parents, Stephen, then 26, and my mum, then 36, had a turbulent relationship. My mum was shy and reserved. And though Dad fashioned a charming facade in front of others, it was far from the truth. ‘You b***h!’ he’d yell at Mum, followed by a barrage of other insults. I tried to escape in my books, but it wasn’t enough to drown out Dad’s booming voice. Nor the sound of his monstrous fists knocking my…

just genius

Rust in peace Steam made our bathroom cabinet hinges rusty. So we replaced them and sprayed them with a silicone coating – two years on, there’s still no rust! Julie Howard, High Heaton 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 Lush loo Keep essential oils next to the toilet and pop a few drops in the bowl after you flush to keep your bathroom smelling sweet. Manisa Kuinkel, Harrow 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 I can find them instantly. Leeanne Maginn, Derry Travel savvy I use clean, empty lip…

our boy is a blessing

Moby Gordon, 25 Handing a gift bag to my mother-in-law Christy, 45, I couldn’t wait for her reaction. ‘What’s this?’ she asked, looking bemused. Unwrapping the tiny onesie, she held it up. World’s greatest grandma. ‘We’re having a baby,’ my husband Checotah, 25, beamed. Speechless, with tears in her eyes, Christy wrapped us both in a hug. It was January 2018 and I was six weeks pregnant. We couldn’t wait to tell my parents Olumide, 51, and Olufunke, 47, too. After meeting in October 2012 through mutual friends, Checotah and I had married in November 2013. And from the start, we always wanted a big family. In February, at our eight-week scan, all looked fine. And at 16-weeks, we learnt we were having a boy! Excited, we turned our spare room into a nursery, painting the walls and building a crib that Mum…
