picture perfect

My daughter Fleur, 5, loves dinosaurs and was thrilled to see this stegosaurus painted in rainbow colours on a recent visit to Teessaurus Park in Middlesbrough.Donna Gray, Stockton-on-TeesI just love this photo of our labrador Riley being introduced to Bunny for the first time. His face says it all!Tracey Pascoe, IlloganI was able to get up close with a friendly seal during a fantastic trip to Taronga Zoo in Sydney in 2018. He liked having his tummy tickled and I was only too happy to oblige!Val Johnson, KnaphillI never manage to get a picture of all three of my girls smiling. So when I snapped this one of Jessica, 8, Olivia, 6 and Rosie, 4 months, I was so delighted and just had to share it.Vicky McLaughlin, CanterburyI’m so proud…

what was he hiding?

Vicki Glister, 32, Salisbury Perching on the ladder, I brushed pink paint along the wall. ‘Perfect colour,’ I beamed. It was October 2016, and I was eight months pregnant. Excited for the arrival of my little girl, I was putting the finishing touches to her nursery. Only, with my fiancé Liam, then 24, away in the Army, I had to decorate on my own. After three years together, I was used to Liam working long stints abroad. But sometimes, with two children from a previous relationship, Paige, then eight, and Jenson, five, I struggled. It got lonely. Now, Liam was based in Northern Ireland, and wasn’t due home until our girl was born. What do you think? I texted, alongside a photo of the painted wall. But he never replied straight away, was always busy working. Weeks later, in November 2016, my waters…

just genius

Simply grate Use a nail brush to remove lemon, lime or orange rind from a grater. It cleans the utensil very easily without ripping any sponges to shreds. Abbey Swinburne, Hartlepool Liner ’em up! Save yourself some time by keeping the bin bags for your pedal bin underneath the current bag you’re using. It makes it so much easier for you when the time comes to change to a fresh liner. Emma Worthington, York Cheers to that If you happen to stain your carpet with red wine, blot as much of it as you can with a paper towel before covering the entire stain with salt. Let it soak into the wet stain until it’s absorbed and, when dry, simply hoover. Alexandra Low, Halesowen £25 For every photo tip that we print Winner, winner I put some unused mini toiletries in…

all i ever wanted

Sasha Jones 26, Bangor Slipping into my fitted, white, satin gown, I took a deep breath. I can’t believe it’s really happening!. It was 1 August 2016, and today was my wedding day. My dress was simple and elegant, but it made me feel like the most beautiful woman in the world – something I’d thought would never be possible. Growing up as a young boy in Bangor, I’d always known I was different. Aged 5, I was drawn towards playing with the girls at school. Teachers would drag me away and encourage me to join the boys instead. It was confusing. I couldn’t understand why there was such a gender divide. Still young, it was difficult to explain how I felt. So I buried my emotions. As I got older, the feeling of injustice grew stronger. Why do I have to…
