Leila Sumera, 26, Orpington Grabbing my textbooks, I shoved them into my bag and put on my coat. But, as I headed out of the classroom, I bumped slap bang into a bloke walking the other way. ‘Sorry!’ I said, flustered. ‘No worries, I’m Adam by the way,’ he grinned. It was October 2011 and my second year at college. I’d never noticed Adam, then 17, around, but at first glance, I liked what I saw. He was tall, with stubble and a sexy smile. We got chatting and, over the next weeks, got to know each other. We had loads in common. His birthday was the day after mine, we liked the same chart music. We were soon inseparable. In April 2012, our friendship naturally blossomed and Adam and I became an item. ‘I couldn’t be happier than I am…

Mary Hadley, Cradley Heath Band aid To avoid having to scramble around searching for a hairband, I like to keep them within easy reach. My solution is to hang them on suction hooks in my bathroom cupboard – now they never get lost! Maria Collins, Wickford Gifts that rock I collect stones and rocks from my walks, then make paperweight gifts by painting them with acrylic paints.

Smiling, his little feet sticking out the front, he reached out for a cuddle. Happy and playful, Dylan made my heart melt. I’d had Lily, then 4, at 18. Dylan shortly after. Being a single mum so young was tough. But I adored them both. And then, when Dylan was still a baby, I’d met my partner Neil, then 24. He’d quickly become a father figure, and when I had our little girl Darcy in June 2003, our family felt complete. Now, that October, Neil and I were getting ready for a friend’s wedding reception. ‘They’ll need to go to bed soon,’ I told the babysitter, kissing Lily and Dylan goodbye…
