Here's a short story I wrote for Christmas -- Lydia's Christmas Resolution. Merry midwinter, everyone.
1. I ordered in a small crate of easy peelers with our supermarket delivery. It's a lot of citrus, but I have no regrets.
2. I've had a long, busy morning (it's now 2pm) but Nick has my lunch on the stove.
3. It turns out that Alec has made all the arrangements over the phone. When I come down, he and Bettany are sitting ready in their waterproof trousers, coats and shoes ready.
