this week in your fab value

Oh, the tyranny of the newly decorated room! I did my bedroom up recently. Suddenly, with some new hint-of-green walls, velvet curtains and a jazzy, plumptious quilt, I turned into Mrs Hinch. ‘Don’t leave your shoes there!’ to the husband. ‘Stop shoving your pyjamas under the pillow like that.’ A million small bad habits he’s had for years were suddenly unbearable in our shiny new room. Poor bloke was thinking I’d be changing him next… for someone new from Dunelm. But what had come over me was the lovely satisfaction of all that hard work. Amy-Leigh knows what I mean. She spent ages and hundreds of pounds getting her living room just the way she wanted it, only for it to be disintegrated in the blink of an eye (p15).…

hell was a honey monster

Sniffing the air, I recognised the aroma. The smell wafting in my nostrils was the scent of roses. It was the perfume my mum wore. The fragrance was lovely but its whiff made me uneasy because when she sprayed it on herself, it signalled she was going out for the evening. And that meant one thing. Our babysitter would be looking after me. Sure enough, Mum tucked me up in bed, my favourite teddy, Brandy, in the crook of my arm. She was off to the pub – it was New Year’s Eve in 1988 and I was four. Mum had been on her own since she’d split with my dad. Whenever she went out, she made sure I was already asleep when the babysitter arrived. She was called Georgina Woodburn and she was 11. But in my mind,…

the money, honey!

Go to the police? But would they believe me? I was a war-weary ex-soldier. She was a woman who’d received an award. My word against hers. I had no evidence. But… but maybe I could get some evidence, find a way of making her incriminate herself. Maybe if I pretended I wanted to catch up with her – an old acquaintance making a friendly approach to re-connect through Facebook… Shaking, I sent off a message. Hey Georgina, How are you? Three dots appeared immediately. Hiya Shaun, Haven’t seen you for years. How are you? Casually, just like old pals who hadn’t been in touch for a while, I told her what I’d been up to. I leaned back, repulsed by being in contact with her. But over the following weeks and months I kept up contact, never mentioning what she’d done to…

a chimney on it…

Hanging out with my best friends over some drinks, all the chat was about my new squeeze. ‘So what’s he like?’ my friend, Kristen, 21, asked. ‘Yes, give us all the details,’ my other bestie, Sydney, 21, grinned. I could have told them about how 21-year-old Jack Benzinger was drop-dead gorgeous, sweet, considerate and easy to talk to. Instead, I blurted the only thing that really mattered… ‘I have a weird feeling he might be The One,’ I admitted. I’d never said that about anyone before – let alone after two weeks of dating! It was late June 2017 and me and Jack had only made things official on 13 June. We’d been chatting for a few months though, after meeting at Maryland’s Goucher College. Obsessed with keeping fit, when I wasn’t in the gym six times…
