remember this face

Katie MacKinnon, 34, Perth As I gulped a glass of wine, I sobbed on my neighbour’s shoulder. ‘I just can’t face Christmas alone,’ I wept to her. He seemed to get a real kick out of inflicting pain It was December 2010 and I’d just broken up with my partner of 12 years. Depressed, heartbroken, I was lower than I’d ever been. I felt alone and miserable. Just then, a good-looking young man walked through the front door. It was my neighbour’s son. ‘Hi, I’m Stefan,’ he smiled. ‘Don’t mind me,’ I said, drying my eyes. ‘I’m being daft.’ Grabbing a glass himself, Stefan joined me and his mum for a drink. Soon, my heartbreak was long forgotten. Stefan was so charming, it didn’t matter that he was 17 and I was 25. He was gorgeous, and I couldn’t help but get lost…

Sew clever To recycle an old towelling dressing gown, cut out a rectangle and sew into a pocket-shape to make a wash mitt. I jazzed mine up with a little heart motif, as well! Helen Cameron, London Scrub up Got a worn out toothbrush? Don't throw it away - it's great for cleaning hard-to-reach areas, such as around taps and any little nooks and crannies! Laura Lennard, Aylesbury Just add water Put a few drops of water in the bottom of a tea-light holder before lighting the candle. It keeps the wax from sticking to the sides, and you can remove the candle and use your holders again and again. Jade Davies, Billingham Get a grip! Cut a piece of rubber hosepipe lengthways, then put it over the handles of your plastic carrier bags. Makes toting heavy groceries so much…

‘i wish that he’d killed me!’

Gabrielle Myers, 29 Arriving at my mate’s house party, I felt a double dose of excitement. Not only was there a night of fun and games to enjoy, but he’d also just got a new dog – an American pit bull called Caine. As an animal lover, I couldn’t wait to meet him. It was 11 June 2017, and my friend already had a pit bull called Clyde. I knew that the breed had a reputation for violence (it is illegal in the UK but not all parts of the US, where I live), but I wasn’t convinced. I just didn’t believe any pup was born bad. Besides, I’d known Clyde for four years – he was friendly and playful. Plus I had two dogs of my own and one of them – Chevy – was a…

death of a monster

As police officers opened the door to the flat, they were confronted by a gruesome scene. A 54-year-old man was dead in his home in New Tredegar, South Wales. His body was covered in wounds, including his neck, skull and both eyes. He’d been brutally stabbed 176 times, and his fingernails had been cut off. But the victim was no stranger to brutality himself. His name was David Gaut – and back in 1995, aged 21, he’d murdered his girlfriend’s 15-month-old son while he was babysitting. The baby had died of multiple injuries, including a broken arm, injured liver and spleen and a fractured skull. Though Gaut had tried to make it look like an accident, at Cardiff Crown Court, he was convicted of the toddler’s murder and given a life sentence. He was released on parole…
