‘scream and i’ll kill you’

Sandy Abrams, 54, Cheshire Settling in for the evening, I cuddled up with my cats Freddie, Ziggy, Alfie and Robbie. Bliss! I thought, sandwiched between their warmth. I loved cosy nights watching TV in bed. It was February 2019, and I’d spent a lovely day with a friend. But I’d lived alone for years. The comfort of my kitties on an evening was all I needed to feel safe. I’d served as a police officer for Merseyside in my 20s, you see. Then I’d moved to America in 1995 to marry my then boyfriend. I eventually divorced and came back to the UK in 2013, getting a job as a supplier for Bentley. But I was grateful for the skills five years on the beat had given me. Now 53, I was a strong, confident woman, and knew how to look…

just genius

Helping hand I can always do with an extra pair of hands when it comes to stopping my charging cables becoming entangled. Fortunately, I found a nifty solution when my children had finished playing with this Lego toy. He’s stuck to my desk with Blu Tack and holds my wires in place. Margaret Sherwin, Derby Make your mark To create a simple bookmark, just cut off the corner from an envelope and put it over the corner of your page. Ruth Sharpe, Lancaster Strictly confidential If you don’t have a shredder to get rid of your personal documents, just tear them into pieces and soak them in cold water for a few minutes. Then scrunch all the wet pieces together into a ball and throw them out – no information will be legible after doing so. Julie Surtees,…

‘surprise, mum!’

Rhea Martin, 24, Stockport My boyfriend Luke cleared a space on the living room floor. ‘I’m doing an Instagram live workout – fancy it?’ he asked. ‘Sure,’ I laughed. It was October 2020 and I’d still not shifted the dress size I’d gained during the first lockdown. Luke, a personal trainer, and I often exercised together. We’d met in a bar just a year earlier. Despite recently moving in together, we were still in the honeymoon phase. Yes, we’d tentatively talked about marriage, maybe kids one day. We’d jokingly bandied around baby names we liked – Myles for a boy. But for now, all that could wait. Luke was 27 and I was only 23 years old. Plenty of time for all that. Besides, I was busy job hunting after being made redundant from my sales job, thanks to the pandemic. Since COVID-19…
