Sweet of him, I thought. I’d had so many kind messages of late. It was March 2019 and I’d lost my husband Nick five months earlier, to a sudden heart attack. Married for 25 years, five kids together, Nick was the love of my life. I missed him dearly. Typing a message back to Blair, then 31, I thanked him for his kind words. We got chatting, exchanging messages every couple of days. Truth was, I was lonely. Blair was struggling, too. ‘I’ve got no one else,’ he told me.

Hanging around We couldn’t find a replacement when the cover on our swing seat got damaged, so we decided to use a bed sheet instead. It did the job perfectly. Brian Hudson, Malvern Grate job Place foil in the bottom of your barbecue to catch drips and reduce mess. When finished and cool, just roll up and throw away. Margaret Peters, West Ewell On a roll The plastic part of an empty lint roller is perfect for holding garden string and feeding it out.
