welcome to this week’s chat…

all for a quickie?!

As the doorbell rang, my mum hurried off to the front door and I heard a little boy’s voice. ‘My mum says you have a daughter,’ he stammered. ‘I’d love to play if she wants to.’ ‘Sarah!’ my mum yelled. ‘Come here, Tina’s son wants to meet you.’ Tina was Mum’s new friend who lived a few doors down. We’d only moved to the area two weeks before. Feeling shy, I walked to the door and hid behind Mum. A boy who looked about my age stood smiling on the doorstep. ‘Hi, I’m Jack!’ he said. ‘Sarah,’ I grinned. It was June 2002 and Jack and I were both 8, just a few months different in age. As the weeks passed, our mums became best friends. And Jack and I did, too. While our parents hung out, Jack and…

just genius

Money for nothing Old coffee tins are the ideal objects to decorate and transform into fun money boxes for kids. Mitra Zehtabi, Bristol Clear vision Wearing glasses with a mask means my lenses constantly steam up. A really easy solution is to rub a bit of soap on the lenses before carefully wiping it off.

Chantelle Bowden, 30, Warrington Cracking open another beer, my friend nudged me gently. ‘I think Dean likes you,’ she teased. ‘Oh, bore off!’ I groaned, shrugging her off me. Yet, seconds later, there was Dean, standing right next to me. ‘You must be Tilly?’ he smiled, using my nickname. ‘It’s Chantelle, actually,’ I said, putting him in his place, albeit flirtatiously! And, just like that, the sparks flew. It was July 2013, and for the rest of the night, Dean had my full attention. He was 29, just shy of 6ft and had a bit of a bad-boy attitude. I couldn’t deny that made him more attractive to me. So when he asked for my number at the end of the night, I happily agreed. At first, we just had fun together, then we both realised it was a bit…
