fallen hero

Ashleigh Preston, 20, London Watching my brother Craig packing his bags, I had tears in my eyes. ‘I’ll only be a few streets away, sis,’ he said, ruffling my hair. ‘Come round whenever you want.’ Ever since I could remember, Craig had been my best mate. Fifteen years older than me, we shared the same dad. A proper joker, he always had me in stitches. And although we’d fight like cat and dog, Craig was the first person I’d turn to with a problem. He was my hero, someone I knew would always be on my side. Only now, in 2006, I was 6 and Craig was in his early 20s and moving out into his own place. I missed having him around - but, true to his word, I was always welcome at his house. Most weekends, I’d be…

just genius

What a gem My jewellery kept getting tangled up in my wardrobe, so I decided to glue some picture-hanging hooks to the back of my wardrobe door. It makes them super easy to get hold of and stops them from becoming tangled together. Jenny Haslam, Chesterfield Brr-illiant I don’t waste money buying wine chillers, instead I use silver foil which I keep in the fridge. If you wrap it around the wine bottle, it makes an excellent chiller and can be used time and time again. Hazel Bryan, Liverpool Wool-d you believe it? Rubber stoppers for wine bottles make excellent ‘needle stoppers’ too, preventing your knitting from sliding off the needles when you put it down. Marie James, Chesterfield It’s lit If you have a gas hob and the rings need to be lit manually, keep a small, non-flammable container…

At first, I thought it was the pillow. Then I realised it was coming from inside my belly! But it couldn’t be… Could it? ‘I’m going to take a pregnancy test,’ I told my partner Elijah, then 26. An hour later, I held a positive pregnancy test in my hand. ‘We’re in trouble,’ Elijah laughed. And at the doctor’s, more surprises. ‘You’re five months gone,’ he said to me. Stunned into silence, I tried to process it all… And I bet you’re trying, too. Yes, I have…
