this week in your fab value

How do you watch a scary film? From behind a cushion? Or through your splayed and shaking fingers? Well, it’s how you’ll be reading Angela’s story this week! No one gets murdered or possessed in her tale, but she is most definitely haunted by a momentary slip of memory that has cost her family dear. And if you’ve ever dreamt of winning the lottery, living high on the hog and never working again, you’ll understand why… It truly is the stuff of nightmares (p44). But there are frights aplenty in this week’s issue. How about going from mid-bonk to 31-week baby in the literal blink of an eye? That would scare the socks off me (p14). But my favourite shock this week? That’s got to be the sight that greeted…

our mad world!

Comedy TOT HATS OFF TO YOU Does anyone remember Hyacinth Bucket – sorry, Bouquet? Well I reckon my one-year-old, Jett, does a great impression. Stacy Gibson, Kingswinford, West Mids UK And ye shall be smited for stealing lead from one of my church roofs! And so fell thief Jamie Caddis, 36, off of Christ Church’s roof in Nelson, Lancs, shattering his leg in the process. After five days in hospital, he’s now spending 22 weeks in jail. Divine justice!

HOLY COW, I’M STUFFED Veggies look away…

on the block

My boyfriend, George, suddenly paled. ‘Stop the car,’ he said, putting his hand to his mouth. ‘I think I’m going to be sick.’ As soon as I pulled over, he lurched out of his door and vomited into the lay-by. ‘Sorry, it must be a bug,’ he croaked. ‘It doesn’t matter,’ I said, stroking his back when he returned to the car. We’d been seeing each other for six months, after he approached me in a bar. I’d had that Friday feeling, having a few drinks with the girls, after a week of work as a food supplier. And up walked George, 50, a mental health nurse, bold as brass and asked if I wanted to go to a barbie! Smitten by the confidence, blue eyes and blond hair, I agreed. He’d rescued me from 15 years of…

what’s your beef?

How had it come to this? Desperately, I tried to palm him away, the swishing knife crisscrossing my hands. Then the blade pierced underneath my breast. And suddenly pain erupted on the other side. Then my left shoulder... He was jabbing me all over. No more. I can’t take any more. My whole body throbbed with pain. I can’t have long now... I cowered to the wall, trying to turn away from the blows. Then the wind was sucked from inside me. A stab in the back. I crumpled to the floor. ‘Stop it,’ I screamed. Still, George hadn’t said a word. I gave up defending myself. ‘I love you and always have,’ I shouted, my top heavy with blood. George stopped. The butcher had done his carving for the day. ‘Call an ambulance,’ I begged. But a glimmer of hope suddenly went through me.. He might have been…
