justice for my dennis

Leeanne Manzi, 40, south London Clinking glasses, I beamed at my partner Dennis, 39, and our 19-year-old daughter Toni. ‘Thank you both!’ Toni said, delighted. ‘Our pleasure, love,’ I told her. It was February 2019, and we’d just bought our beloved girl a brand-new car. Any excuse for a family celebration, we headed to a restaurant for dinner. ‘At least I’m not your chauffeur any more!’ Dennis laughed. Devoted Dennis had been ‘Dad’s taxi service’ for years. But I reckoned that he’d miss ferrying around his diamond girl. We’d had Toni when we were just teenagers ourselves. Dennis doted on her from day one, hadn’t missed a second of her growing up. Parents’ evening, sports day… Every single dance show, he’d be there, cheering the loudest! Even now, they were as thick as thieves. They even had matching trainers! In fact,…

just genius your tips are the tops!

In the frame My photo frame was quite flimsy and kept getting knocked over, so I glued a pretty drawer knob on the back to stabilise it – and it hasn’t taken a tumble since then! Leeanne Maginn, Coleraine Fit for purpose I accidentally bought my holiday shoes in a size too big, but a small pinch at the back and a bit of glue made them the perfect fit! Matthew Corden, Stratfield Saye Good to nose To make a scented room spray, mix half fabric conditioner and half water in a clean empty spray bottle. It’s economical and eco-friendly. Valerie Bowler, Derby £25 For every photo tip that we print Funny bunnies! Everyone loved these sweet little rabbit cupcakes I made. I mixed green food colouring and coconut flakes with icing to make the grass and then made the…

surprise…you’re getting married too!

Rebecca Stafford, 23, Northumberland Gazing at the bride and groom delivering their speeches, I started to imagine what my big day would be like. Snow, fairy lights and everything in a dazzling white. My perfect wedding would be a winter wonderland, I’d wear a white princess dress that sparkles. Back to reality in August 2018, and the beautiful bride was my boyfriend’s sister Charlene, 32. She looked so elegant in her traditional white dress. ‘You look incredible,’ I mouthed to Charlene. The venue they’d chosen was stunning too. A church wedding followed by a reception at a local club. A modern, pink-blush theme, LOVE spelled out in lights and a dance floor where guests could boogie. But as I took in all the beauty and felt a pang of envy, I tried not to get too carried away. Me and Antoni,…
