A Surprise for Christine

A Surprise for Christine is a collection of short stories.

A Surprise for Christine

The collection was originally published under the title Twelve of the Best, but my publisher thought that it was time they were given a new title and a brand new cover and hopefully a whole new lease of life.

The stories are light-hearted, very easy to read and would fit in nicely with your coffee break. (if you manage to get a coffee break in your busy day)

Anyway if you are looking for a quick read, then A Surprise for Christine could be something you might be interested in.

They seem to have finished digging up the streets in Kelso or at least I thought they had. But it now seems that there was something not quite right because they are at it again. The pavement outside the Town Hall is up again. I think this must be about the third time they have fiddled around outside there.
Could they possibly be looking for something a workman left behind? Or more importantly, could they be looking for one of the workmen?

Is it possible that when they did a head count at the end of the day, they found that one man was missing and had to come back and start looking for him? Okay, I know it sounds stupid and probably is, but why do they have to keep tearing up the areas that have been done once or even twice before unless they are missing something?

I play the lottery online and the other day I received an email to say my ticket had been lucky. I was to go to my account and find out how much the ticket was worth. As it turned out, I have won £25, which is very nice, but wouldn't it have been wonderful if there has been a few more noughts on the end. I could have seen our family were okay and set up a fund for our gorgeous nephew. But it wasn't to be - at least not this time. But you never know - one day...

I think that is all for the moment, except to wish you all good luck in whatever you do.

Have a great day
