I love this period in between Christmas and the New Year – all the gifts have been unwrapped, and oohed and ahhed over, memories of a sumptuous Christmas feast are still fresh – with no guilty feelings because we're all joining a gym or changing our eating habits in the New Year – right? Right! Walking the dogs and meeting others wearing their brand new Christmas jumpers, hats and scarves and exchanging cheery greetings – I could live in this part of winter forever, or at least until Spring bounces in. Best of all, there's still boxes of chocolate to eat. I'm delighted to report that my two sons listened carefully to my hints, and I've literally got a chocolate hamper. Hand on heart, I wish I could hand them around to each and every one of you – it's like a little piece of heaven – chocolate is food for the soul. Instead I'm offering a free short story for your kindle – it's a little piece of fun, dedicated to Doreen, whom most of us know as "Dody"; with my sincere thanks; this lady is a constant source of support and encouragement not only to me, but many other indie authors too. Maybe next year I'll throw a huge party and invite and meet many of my cyber pals for the first time, until then, I hope you'll accept this little story with my best wishes for a happy and healthy new year to you and all your loved ones.
