My gorgeous British shorthair cat Blue looked so relaxed in my garden last week. Just catching some autumn rays! Kaye Willan, Manchester I am so pleased we managed to get Nancy swimming lessons, as she is absolutely loving it. Here she is in my parents’ pool having a thoroughly good time, even though it isn’t very warm! Elliot Richardson, Great Leighs I took a step back in time on a recent visit to Brighton. Do the mutton chops suit me? Louise Furtado, Epsom As a huge mermaid fan, I was delighted to receive this merman cake for my birthday!

a boy named fish

Julie Taylor, 56, Chelmsford Babbling away on the living-room floor, my son James, then 15 months, and grandson Liam, then 11 months, made the cutest pair. ‘Fish, Fish,’ James garbled, trying to say Liam’s name. Me and my daughter Michelle fell about laughing. It’d been a shock when Michelle had fallen pregnant at 18 in 1999. Especially because, at only 35, I’d already been four months gone with my fifth. But bringing our boys up together was special. ‘They’re more like twins,’ I’d laugh, watching the boys learn to talk, walk and then kick a ball about together. And James’ cute nickname for Liam stuck. Even his teachers called him Fish. Michelle had Adam in 2005, and Rachel in 2008. Shortly after, she and her partner split, but Fish proudly took on being man of the house. Taking his brother and…

Save your dough To make your own play dough, add food colouring to boiling water then add flour, salt, cream of tartar and oil. Stir continuously until it combines. Kids love it and a homemade recipe is cheaper than buying it from the shops. Ria Harding, Somersham Party time Children’s birthday parties can be expensive, so we transformed our dining room into an ultraviolet shooting range. We bought ultraviolet light bulbs and soft bullets, which were cheap to buy. Then we recycled cardboard boxes and created our own targets. Caron Davies, Essex Label up I get annoyed when I don’t know what date food in the fridge has been opened. So I leave out a roll of labels and a pen, and everyone has to mark the date they open it. It saves such a lot of…

another chance at love

Rachel Smith, 46, South Gloucestershire Seeing the postman, I bolted out of the house to meet him. ‘Anything from John?’ I asked him eagerly. It was early 2001, and my boyfriend Lance Corporal John Murphy, then 26, had just been deployed to Afghanistan. We’d met through a mate just months earlier. He was witty, full of Irish charm and, until his deployment, based at a military barracks in Essex, an hour away. His schedule made dating tricky, so we treasured our time with pub trips and nights clubbing. But then he’d been called up, and his absence hit me like a truck. With him on the front line – hell on Earth John called it – I spent my days worrying. ‘You’re in luck,’ the postman grinned. Opening the envelope, I excitedly scanned John’s squiggly handwriting. I better buy…
