26 Apr 2:00am From the rollerball to the quill, the pen will always be mightier than the keyboard | Hannah Jane Parkinson
The Guardian
Tech may be efficient, but there’s nothing like the scratch and scrape of the humble ballpoint It is one of my greatest concerns that, with the ubiquity of tech, I now have the handwriting ability of Edward Scissorhands. I found myself composing a note to my neighbours recently, and it took three attempts to make it legible. I used to carry a Moleskin around with me, as all good writers should. Now, I just have my phone. This can be uncomfortable when it looks like I am rudely texting while someone is talking; I am in fact making notes. As a child, I was such an obnoxious show-off that I recall attempting cursive – joined-up writing – while my classmates were practising print letters. Unfortunately, I made the mistake of joining up not only the letters, but the words too, so an entire four-page story resembled the rolling waves of the sea. The shame is still with me.

18 Mar 9:13am Do not fear the smear: how to overcome anxiety about cervical screening
The Guardian
Many women, particularly those who have survived sexual abuse, are scared of being tested. But there are ways to change this, from asking for a smaller speculum to singing Frozen hits It was only three months. Four, at the most. Throughout, the letters kept coming, so regularly that Laura Flaherty didn’t need to open them to know what they contained: a repeated request for her to make an appointment for a cervical screening. The procedure gathers cells from your cervix, a narrow “neck” that joins the uterus to the top of the vagina, which are then screened. But it is better known as a smear test because cells that are removed from your cervix with the help of a speculum (a device that keeps the vaginal walls open) and a brush are then smeared on to a slide for analysis. Abnormal cells sometimes require further testing because they may indicate

4 Jan 5:00am Experience: I’m a colour-blind paint mixer
The Guardian
I had a row with my bosses over a cream pot of paint that they insisted was green. That’s when I realised I was handed a six-year prison sentence at the age of 23. I’d left school in Bradford at 15 with no GCSEs. I had always been a visual learner, and liked making things with my hands, so I trained to be a mechanic. My intentions were good, but I was only on £20 a week. Even alongside a training allowance of about £60, that wasn’t enough to live on; within a couple of years, I’d fallen in with a bad crowd and crime became my sole source of income. I spent the middle part of my 20s inside, serving a total of four years. In 2007, I was granted release on temporary licence. With the prison’s phonebook and computer, I wrote more than 100 letters asking employers across the country for unpaid work. I wanted to be proactive, but received only three replies – all rejections. Eventually,

Writing to prisoners unlocks more than you would think 10 Nov 2018, 9:59am Writing to prisoners unlocks more than you would think
The Guardian
Prison letters are a treasure trove of stories – filled with both honesty and humour Eight years ago, I saw a job ad on a local website. A small charity was looking for a PR officer. The ad was brief, but it struck me as sweet. In it, they said that through yoga and meditation, they offered hope and healing to prisoners. I liked the sound of that. Unfortunately, I had no experience at all in the criminal justice sector, and I had also never done yoga and meditation. When they asked me why I wanted the job I said that I wanted to leave work each day feeling as if I’d made the world a little bit better rather than a little bit worse. I still work there today. On my first day I was sent to the filing cabinet room and told to have a look through some of the old correspondence to get an idea of how the letter-writing element of the charity worked. It was a treasure trove of stories – conversations between a prisoner and a letter-writing volunteer stretching over years, occasionally decades in some cases. The things that the prisoners wrote really jumped off the page – they were sad or angry, or despairing, or filled with excitement and hope about the future. They were often very funny. And they were honest. I had never encountered that level of honesty in conversation before – and I haven’t since.

She lives with her grandparents, but when we wrote they said they wanted no contact. She may not even know we exist My sister and I have never met our 18-year-old half-sister. We don’t know if she is aware we exist. She lives with her grandparents because of her mum’s problems. My dad has never been allowed to see her due to issues between him and the grandparents 18 years ago. We know their address and she lives nearby. We have sent letters to the grandparents, who replied once saying they wanted no contact. My dad does not know we have tried to contact her, and I have made it clear he is not and will not be involved. Our half-sister’s welfare has to be paramount, so should we stop attempts at contact?

24 Jun 2018, 12:59am I couldn’t bring myself to read my parents’ love letters for years
The Guardian
Before her mother died, she handed over a shopping bag of private and personal letters sent long ago between her and her father. But what would Sabine Durrant learn about the man who died shortly after she was born? My father died just after I was born and I knew very little about him until I was in my 30s. I was a journalist then, and I approached it like an investigation, writing a memoir about what I discovered – his unhappy childhood, his life as a pilot in the navy, and his disappearance one November night during practice manoeuvres off the Dorset coast. The memoir was published in a book and serialised in a newspaper. After it appeared, my mother talked to me about him; not much but enough. She told me he had been a great love, and she told me in heart-rending detail about the night he didn’t come back. We both cried, which was good, because I had got used to thinking she had forgotten him. We had met for lunch, and when we had finished eating she rummaged in her shopper and brought out a plastic bundle, a small

Although I was recently married, I had an intense but chaste relationship with a young man. I have his outpourings of love to me, but I don’t want my children to have to deal with this When I was 22 and just married, I fell in love with an 18-year-old I worked with. He and I spent an emotionally intense but physically chaste summer together and, at the end of it, he went to university and I never saw him again. I am now 72 and trying to tidy my life. I have a bundle of letters and poems he wrote for me that I have kept through many moves. Should I try to contact him (I have no idea where he is) to return these letters? It feels awful to destroy such an outpouring of love, but I do not want my children to have to deal with it.

We have been drinking milk for over 11,000 years and, rightly, it’s a crucial part of the British diet. In an era of fad diets and self-styled nutritionists offering ill-founded advice, we are in real need of common sense. The science behind milk says it all. Calcium, iodine and protein are all key nutrients that benefit adults, teenagers and children alike. Milk also has a protective or neutral relationship with heart health and type 2 diabetes; and it is known as nature’s sports drink as it aids muscle recovery and provides rehydration.
