chat to us!

I always give a chuckle when I come into the room and my daughter Lola, 3, and dad Shaun are often sat side by side in the exact same position. Lyndsey Clayton, Llansamlet I think our house bunny Ted has a little way to go before he grows into those ears!

‘something bad happened...’

Jan Anderson, 32, Gateshead This time last year, my life was near perfect. In March 2018, I was on track to qualify as a lawyer, a long-held dream. I had a good job in Woking, Surrey, fantastic friends, a caring boyfriend. But with exams looming, I needed to relax. Arranged drinks with a friend, Jenni, on Friday 13 April. I polished off a couple of glasses of wine while I travelled by train to London. And, over two hours with my mate, I knocked back a few more glasses. ‘Go easy,’ Jenni advised me. ‘I’d better get home,’ I agreed. But the booze had got the better of me and I took the wrong train. I’m lost, I messaged my boyfriend, then 34. He texted the directions I needed. Eventually arriving back in Leatherhead, I decided to avoid a shortcut home, down…

a mother’s guilt

Kira Aldcroft, 22, Prestwich, Greater Manchester Watching a mum with a baby on her hip, a toddler in a buggy and a child playing ahead, my heart soared. To me, happiness was just that. Motherhood. It was what I’d wanted since I was just a kid, pushing a dolly along in a tiny pram. The oldest of three siblings, my maternal instincts clicked into place from a young age. But without a stable relationship, I knew I needed to wait until the time was right. Only, life doesn’t always work out how you plan it. In December 2017, when I was 21, I realised my period was late. I’d been seeing a guy on and off, but it was nothing serious and we’d always been careful. Buying a pregnancy test felt surreal. And when I saw the positive symbol, I was…

a shot in the dark

When Diana Lovejoy married Greg Mulvihill in August 2007, she promised to love and honour her husband forever. But, just seven years on, love and honour were the last things the mum-of-one felt for Mulvihill. Blind hatred would be nearer the mark. In July 2014, Diana, 41, claimed she had very good reasons to despise her spouse. Vile, shocking reasons… She claimed that Greg, 43, had been sexually abusing her. Worse, she accused him of molesting their 2-year-old son. They heard a rustling in the bushes Removed from the marital home in Carlsbad, near San Diego, with a temporary restraining order issued against him, Greg was denied access to his son. He fought hard to disprove the damning allegations against him. A month later, Greg filed for a divorce, citing irreconcilable differences. For those next months, as a vicious divorce…

the real judge’s verdict

GUILTY In November, Diana Lovejoy, 45, and Weldon McDavid Jr, 50, were found guilty of conspiracy and attempted murder. McDavid was also found guilty of intentionally discharging a firearm with intent to inflict great bodily injury. Moments after the verdict, Lovejoy appeared to faint and was taken to hospital for treatment. Before sentencing, in January 2018, Lovejoy sobbed, professing her innocence. But Judge Sim Von Kalinowski didn’t hold back. Lovejoy was sentenced to 25 years to life and McDavid received 50 years to life for his part in the botched plot. After going through hell and back, perhaps finally Greg Mulvihill could put the past behind him.…
