thirty years of horror

Tugging at the bottom of his jumper, I glanced up at my mum’s new friend. ‘Hey, mister, it’s my birthday today,’ I said, smiling proudly. It was April 1978 and my 4th birthday. It was the first time I’d ever laid eyes on Arthur Ingram, then 28. He had floppy hair and towered over me. ‘Happy birthday,’ he smiled back. It turned out that this man was my mother’s new boyfriend. And it didn’t take long before his feet were firmly under the table. For the next four years, Arthur became like a dad to me. At weekends, he’d take me strawberry picking. We shared fun days out with his own kids from a previous relationship, too. And if I woke up after having a nightmare, he’d rush to my side. ‘It was just a bad dream,’ he’d soothe, hugging me until…

just genius

In the sticks I wanted simple decorations for my new home. So I cut some cardboard into shapes, then my daughters and I collected sticks on a walk, broke them up and, using a glue gun, I stuck them to the card. They look incredible and cost nothing to make. Stacy Gibson, Kingswinford Hanging around Make more room under your sink by adding a pole and hanging spray bottles from it. It leaves space to store things on the bottom. Tracey Ward, Nottingham Hot to chop To keep your wooden chopping board in good condition, apply a small amount of vegetable oil to it before cleaning with a damp hot cloth.

suffering in silence

Lesley Roberts, 55 Burying my face in my son’s jumper as he engulfed me in one of his famous bear hugs, I fought back tears. It was November 2016 and I’d lost count of how many times I’d had to kiss Alex, 22, goodbye. We’d just enjoyed a lovely family holiday to Gran Canaria. But now it was time for him to fly home to his life in Canada. Four years ago, he’d announced he was moving there for a gap year. At first, it was meant to be temporary. Only, it quickly became apparent Alex wasn’t coming home any time soon. I missed him desperately but he was happy, loved his flat, his fun group of friends. He spent his time off work skiing or snowboarding. ‘I love you, Mum,’ Alex smiled now, kind green eyes shining. ‘Don’t…
