picture perfect

Such a special picture of my daughters, Valia, 2, and Mia, 3, sharing a moment as they pick daffodils for their great-granny. Dawn Johnston, Orkney It looks like there is a fire somewhere and the services have sent out their best team – my cat, Sky, is off to the rescue! Jane Whitaker, Birchington Here is my boy, Coco, lounging around in his new jumper. It was two sizes too big for him, but at least it did the job of keeping him nice and warm. Maria Ioannou, Hatfield I just had to take advantage of this photo op at The Big Texan Steak Ranch in Amarillo, Texas. It was taken in 2017 while I was doing Route 66 for my 40th birthday.

my best mate des

Andrea Kubinova, 30, Barnet Dusting under the cards along my mantelpiece, I smiled as I reached the centrepiece. A pair of brown-rimmed spectacles. Holding the frame between my fingertips, I delicately polished the lenses. ‘Oh, how I miss you,’ I sighed, stroking the ceramic urn beside them. But the cards, specs and ashes weren’t mementos of a lost parent or other elderly relative. They’d once belonged to a man many considered a monster, one of the vilest serial killers to ever stalk Britain. My best friend Des. It was 2014 when I first heard about Dennis Nilsen. ‘Try reading this,’ my friend suggested, lending me a book on serial killers. ‘It’s not normally my cup of tea,’ I shrugged, but I found it fascinating. And Dennis’ story stuck with me. He’d murdered as many as 15 teenage boys and young…

just genius

Piece of cake When baking, I use a clothes peg to secure a paper loaf liner in place in a tin. It reduces the risk of spillages when it comes to pouring in the mixture. Daphne Jones, Rhyl On the map Use pages torn from an old, unused road atlas as a cheap and eco-friendly way of wrapping small gifts. You can also personalise the gift by choosing an area on the map that has significance to the recipient. Barbara Trevitt, Newcastle upon Tyne Solved! Every week I do the puzzles in Chat magazine, but always find myself hunting around for pens and scissors. I turned an unused spice rack jar set I found into a station for my stationery, and now I have everything I need at my fingertips. Karen Dirs, Kegworth On a roll When a door in…

offer of a lifetime

Melissa Hosegood, 37, Newbridge, New Forest As I took a pregnancy test in the bathroom, my stomach did somersaults. And then I saw it... Positive. ‘We’re having a baby!’ I squealed, running to show my boyfriend Joe. ‘Amazing!’ he cried. It was November 2012 and we’d waited for this moment for years. After being diagnosed with a heart condition when I was young, I’d always known it could be difficult for me to conceive. But when, aged 22, I’d met Joe in 2006, we’d dreamt of having a family. Yet, while thrilled, I felt anxious, too... Can my body handle this? Eight weeks in, my worst fears were realised when I started bleeding heavily. At Salisbury District Hospital, the doctors confirmed I’d miscarried. I was devastated. At least I know that I CAN get pregnant, I thought. We stayed positive, and eight months later,…
