killed for her kindness

Standing outside the Tube station, my eyes darted from person to person. Any minute… And then there she was, my sister’s beaming smile shining out. ‘Hiya!’ she called, arms outstretched to me. Antoinette, then 51, never failed to lift my spirits. It was January 2017, and every week she’d come from her home in Battersea, south London, to mine in Kilburn, north London. We strolled, arm-in-arm, back to my flat, where me and Nan, as we all called her, chatted over endless cups of coffee. I loved our time together, us two and our disabled brother Paul, 47, who lived with me. Just like old times. But we hadn’t always been this close. We’d been brought up in Ireland, our parents had 12 children. But sadly, when we were living in Essex during the 70s, Nan was sexually abused,…

Cut above the rest If your scissors need sharpening, take a piece of kitchen foil and rub the duller side across the edge of the blade. Diane Silva, Bournemouth A litter better A sprinkle of baby powder in your cat’s litter box after scooping can make it smell a little less smelly! Leona Heckman, Trefnant Picture perfect When I completed my jigsaw of Blackpool, I liked it so much I glued it together and put it in a frame on my wall. It makes a great picture!

unicorns beat cancer!

Grabbing a toy car from her older brother, Kenni, then 2, trotted away. My little girl’s mouth was turned up in a cheeky grin. I knew that look well! Her big brothers, Jackson, 5, and Cason, 4, ran after her into the garden. Playful shouts and screams erupted as the boys tried to prise the toy from Kenni’s hands. That was my Kenni all over – the naughty little sister keeping her brothers on their toes. Cheeky and energetic, she was a lovable menace. Loved pretty dresses, but had a tomboy edge. Her favourite fancy-dress outfit was a Minnie Mouse dress with the famous cute ears and red spotty bow. Only, she’d put her unique spin on it by carrying around a toy dagger. ‘That’s my girl!’ I laughed as she playfully waved it about, a naughty glint in her…
