Santa’s little scoffer

So fat I ate my children’s presents! Greedily unwrapping the last chocolate on the tree and popping it into my mouth, my focus turned to the final door on the advent calendar. ‘Come on in!’ it taunted, even though it wasn’t Christmas Day, just a few days into December. Refusing to think about the disappointment on my children’s faces, I quickly devoured that too before burying the now empty calendars into the bin safely beneath the remnants of that evening’s curry. Then I crawled into bed, setting my alarm early to get up before my hubby Dave, 48, woke...

Naughty but nice

Sex with my boyfriend’s mate on Christmas Day as he slept upstairs. Despite the Christmas decorations I’d hung up to make it look more festive, there was no getting around the fact that the house was an absolute pig sty. And there, in the middle of it all, was Steve, glued to his Playstation. ‘Steve, for Chrissake!’ I moaned as I noisily tidied around him, picking up discarded plates and cups. ‘Get out the way of the screen!’ he yelled. ‘I can’t see!’ I couldn’t help thinking that living with Steve was like looking after a teenager – which...

This was too good a shot to miss. ‘Smile!’ I said, as Kenny took his first bite, his head thrown back in comedy ecstasy and barbecue sauce running down his chin. That was Kenny all over. A real cheeky, chappie, he oozed mischief and loved to make people feel good. I often joked to my friends that when I met...

Another year older, Please

Found out I had cancer on my daughter’s birthday   Opening the front door, I saw an official looking letter waiting for me on the mat. It was October 1st 2015, my daughter Emmie’s first birthday and it must have arrived while we were celebrating at the soft play centre two miles away. My fiancé Lee and I had taken Emmie, her brother Dyllan, now three (four in May), and my grandparents – it had been such a fun day out. Now we were going to have a birthday tea. Ordinarily, I’d have waited before opening the letter. Only...
