this week in your fab value

Now, this is just between me and you, so you can be completely honest. Have you ever been tempted by the idea of a toyboy? Fancied sinking some cougar claws into the taut, muscly flesh of a young fella you’ve got 20 years on? There’s probably a lot to be said for it. The stamina! The six-pack! The, erm, sensual delights! But the Husband might be reading this. So over to Michelle, instead, who went one further than thinking about it. She signed up to a dating site that did what it said on the tin — Casual Hook Ups, anyone? She landed herself a 20-year-old. She was 39. Hunky Rufio was boyband pretty. Michelle thought she had it made. Turns out it didn’t quite work out that way, as you’ll see…

rape, lies + videotape

Excitement and nerves filled me as I looked towards a table in the pub. ‘There, just over there,’ motioned my Uncle Frank with his finger. He swore blind that he’d seen little men come out of the walls at night, here in the Bricklayers Arms in Ordsall, Salford. Aged 11, my eyes widened. But the walls had no holes. He was pulling my leg, surely? But it was all part of the mystery and magic of the pub he ran with Auntie Linda. I stayed over every weekend I could. ‘You can do some cleaning upstairs for me,’ she said. ‘I’ll pay you a tenner.’ So I did, and spent my coins down the fairground. In this pub, Auntie Linda showed me how to pull a pint. ‘Perfect head, well done,’ she cheered after my second attempt. And it…

prove it!

It was my word against Lee’s. The jury would have to be absolutely sure he’d been there to attack me – any doubt over the dates and they couldn’t convict him. I’d come this far, bottled it all up for this long… I’d thought telling the police was the hard bit, the rest a formality. I’d never imagined Lee could wriggle free. I left after giving my evidence, but Alan and my sister Mandy stayed in court. I paced Mum’s house until they came back that day. Alan hugged me tight. ‘Hang on,’ said Mum suddenly. ‘We can prove Lee was there.’ ‘What do you mean?’ I asked. ‘The photo albums! Surely there’s a picture of Lee at a family bash during those years?’ Mum rushed upstairs and hauled shoe boxes from under the bed.…

head for the hills

You might catch a flash of Jeremy Clarkson flooring a 4x4 around these parts. Or David Cameron rushing back to a country inn to rescue one of his kids he’s left behind. But don’t let the local riff-raff put you off. The Cotswolds is a beautiful stretch of countryside in the south west of England, spanning six counties. It has hills that roll as high as its high-rolling second-homers. A good place to start is the ancient market town of Malmesbury in Wiltshire – charming, ever-so-English and a scone’s throw from Highgrove Royal Gardens. DON’T MISS A river walk is a must and you don’t need to look far. The Avon is easily found in the streets of Malmesbury behind the historic abbey. Follow the burble and cross ye olde bridges as it loops the town. You’ll walk past…
