Fes­tive spe­cial

Pick Me Up! Special - - Contents -

Christ­mas is our favourite time of year and our gift to you is a mag­a­zine brim­ming with real-life sto­ries and fes­tive in­spi­ra­tion. Josie (pg16) was dev­as­tated when she was told her daugh­ter Ruby had can­cer. Then dur­ing Ruby’s brave fight, Josie was di­ag­nosed, too, but their strong part­ner­ship would save them both. Some bonds are re­mark­able and we couldn’t be hap­pier for Ter­rie (pg64) now her beloved miss­ing cat has re­turned home af­ter a decade.

If you think you’re not pre­pared for Christ­mas, then spare a thought for Laura and Scott (pg54). The cou­ple went for a walk on the beach and came home with some­thing they re­ally weren’t ex­pect­ing – a baby! It was a huge sur­prise for Jane to find out she was hav­ing triplets (pg40),but even more of shock to dis­cover that one baby wasn’t where he should be.

Sue knows a thing or two about the un­ex­pected (pg11). She woke up one morn­ing to dis­cover that some­one had stolen all the grass from her gar­den.
