picture perfect

I got to see some truly breathtaking views while on holiday in Vietnam in 2017. This one was simply stunning! Laura Knott, London Is it just me or does my beagle, Daphne’s, ball look a bit like a coronavirus?!

The foil is excellent at removing the stains. Elizabeth Williamson, Carlisle Supermarket sweep If you don’t have a pound coin to put in your supermarket trolley, use the round end of your house key. Margaret Anderson, Sunderland Tin out of tin Who…
