Catastrophe!

The devastation was unbelievable. Glass crunched underfoot as he stepped tentatively into the carnage. A solitary light flickered into life, then died. Where was Murray? This would take some explaining!
A noise to his left set him spinning towards the tree. There, crawling out from under crushed pine was Murray. Collar askew, he crept forward, twined apologetically around John’s legs, and dropped the one unbroken bauble at his feet.
John sighed. Just another Murray Christmas.

Time Travel


Time transporters. Science geeks have been trying for forever to find a way back in time. All those gadgets and gizmos. Flux capacitors and thermal cores and such. Waste of time. I can show them how it’s done. Me, without a sciencey bone in my body. All you need is the right smell. Helena Rubenstein lipstick and powder do it for me. One whiff and instantly I am
back in 1968, stealing from mother’s handbag.

One night, four ghosts.
Christmas – past, present, future.
Save one life. Change many.

Christmas in 75 words.

The Chimney sneezed. They held their breath and listened. Their ears straining to catch the sound again, it had been so faint, almost ethereal. They thought perhaps they had imagined it. But no! There it was, muffled, distorted by intervening brickwork and confined space. But definitely there. A sudden violent fall of soot sent them screeching away, watching in awe as a bad tempered man in a preposterous, dirty, red suit flumped onto the hearth.

Jingle

May your fairy lights twinkle brightly
And your baubles dangle free.
And may you find the thing you wish for most
Wrapped up beneath your Christmas tree.
