Our own special haven I sometimes think that a bathroom is the noblest room in the house. Starting off full of fun and bath-time frolics when we’re children, it becomes altogether more serious, yet still enjoyable in a rather different sort of way, once we become concerned about appearance as teenagers and young adults. Then, as parents of little ones, it transforms into a valued sanctuary of peace and quiet, before changing again as an older adult into a much-loved zone for relaxed pampering and me-time. So I think we deserve to make the best of these small but mighty rooms – have a look at page 32 for great ideas to update it.…

Many threatened species had record-breaking breeding seasons in 2020, while spoonbills nested in Suffolk for the first time in 300 years – choosing its Havergate Island reserve for the happy event.

from you to us

Look what I made I’m currently making teddies for our local charity, which they give to children in need. I love the pattern! Lynn Orelli, Victoria, Australia Bonding over books I am a huge fan of Woman’s Weekly and really enjoy your letters pages. My mum came across some of my childhood books during a clear-out. They brought back some wonderful memories of us snuggling up together and sharing a magical story. I don’t think you can beat being read to as a child. It’s such a lovely way to bond and learn. Jenny Dodd, Warwickshire Paws for thought Here’s a photo of my daughter’s Patterdale puppy, Ollie, ready for a walk in his country gentleman coat. He’s so cute and amusing.

letter of the week

MAY MEMORIES I would like to thank you for bringing back some of my happiest childhood memories, with your recent May Day feature [4 May]. We used to have a maypole at school and I absolutely loved it. At 7am on May Day, we’d go down to May Morning Breakfast with our mammy and nana, where we danced the maypole and everyone had breakfast. In the evening we would perform a little play, where the May Queen was crowned. It was a lovely time and a lot of enjoyment for the whole family. Thanks again for the happy memories. Joan Bennison, Angus, Scotland…

what you’re wearing

ALISON WORLAND, 59 Tell us about your look My go-to is always a dress. At only 5ft 2in, it’s the most flattering look for me. Having said that, I wear jeans with tops by Ted Baker – I love their floral prints. I enjoy shopping on the high street and like to see the latest trends, even if I can’t always wear them. This dress is by Hobbs, with a denim jacket from River Island and M&S shoes. And the best bit of your body? My waist. It’s still quite slim. MONIA MICIC, 41 Tell us about your look My look very much depends on my mood, but at the heart of it all is a very relaxed, minimalist style that I love. I’m a big believer in quality over quantity so I go for pieces that…

you wore it well

Anne Davies, 1985 I’m on the left in the floral dress, which I believe was from Dorothy Perkins. I loved it and still can’t believe my small waist in this photo. I’m with my sisters -– Betty, wearing her BA uniform, and Coral in white jeans and a T-shirt. It seems like only yesterday. ✢ We’d love to see how great you looked in any era up to and including the 1980s.
