My friend Rosey’s fellow flat-dwellers are a competitive lot, especially with their annual ‘light up your balcony’ event. This Christmas, Rosey was determined hers would outshine the rest!
She proudly showed me the elaborate wiring system she’d created to power her mass of lights. Actually, it was a bit of a tangled mess!
At eight o’clock, Fred from flat-four stood down in the street, wearing his Santa-suit.
‘Five-four-three-two-one … happy Christmas!’ he yelled.
A massive cheer went up as all the balconies came alive – except Rosey’s! She flicked the switch … on-off-on-off … BANG!
Suddenly, the entire building was plunged into darkness!
Embarrassing or what?
Thanks to Rochelle for hosting and providing the picture.

My friend Rosey has asked me to wish you all an ‘appy slappy Crimbo (her words, not mine) and thanks you for reading the stories I’ve been telling you about her over the past 12 years, even though she insists they are ficticious – well, mostly!
