no escape

Kat Dobbs, 36, Crewe Collapsing on to the sofa, I nestled into Shaun’s arms to watch TV. I hadn’t felt this content in such a long time. ‘I feel I’m at home when I’m at yours, Kat,’ he said, resting his head on mine. ‘I wish you could stay forever,’ I smiled. It was December 2014 and me and Shaun, then 28, had been together for three months. Early days, I know. But with Shaun, it felt right. He was funny, bright and exceptionally charming. Best of all, he was so great with my two young boys. Trips to the park, treating us to family meals out. ‘Move in with us!’ I said. And with a nod and a goofy grin, Shaun agreed. He’d move in after Christmas. But as Shaun settled in, I noticed a growing tower of empty beer…

Richard Emerson, Grimsby Delivering the goods When you have a takeaway, keep the containers that your food comes in, as they make great storage boxes. I use mine for the kids’ toys and other bits and bobs. Carol Roberts, Cwmbran Easy peelers Never throw out potato peel. Instead, drizzle with oil and sprinkle with your chosen seasoning before oven baking. You end up with a delicious snack somewhere between fries and crisps. Mary Hadley, Cradley Heath Turning tables I really wanted some mirrored furniture, but it was all too expensive. Instead, I bought a cheap wooden cabinet from a charity shop and my son…

a walk to remember

Jane Barnes, 57, Reading ‘Here we go again,’ I thought as my hubby Steve hobbled through the front door, frowning. It was April 2013 and, like every Tuesday, he’d been out playing football. ‘My left knee locked,’ Steve, then 50, frowned. I was used to him arriving home feeling a bit battered. ‘Rest up and ice it,’ I smiled. Only, as the weeks rolled on, Steve was still grumbling about his knee. His GP referred him to a physio, who gave him exercises to do. But despite the workouts, his left leg felt weak. ‘Not better, Dad?’ our daughter Coral, then 20, asked. ‘It’s getting worse,’ Steve admitted. By October 2013, his left foot dragged behind him. ‘I’m walking like Dad used to,’ Steve fretted. Is history repeating itself down the generations? Steve’s dad Ray had died at 69 after battling multiple sclerosis. The condition…
