    Years ago, Mr Rover, was living in his 2 up 2 down, next to Mr Claret. Then he won the lottery. He could afford to move to a smarter part of town and regularly visited the big city where he lived the high life. Rubbing shoulders with well established millionaires at the casino he frequented.

    He got a taste for expensive food and drink and also developed an expensive cocaine habit. Not of this mattered as he was sure that the money he’d won would never run out.

    He would often drive past in his large limousine and scoff at Mr Claret, shouting that he’d never have to live like his former neighbour had to.

    Mr. Claret, meanwhile, just got on with his lot. Only spending what he could afford.

    Time passed and the high rolling lifestyle of the now bloated, Mr. Rover had taken its toll on his bank account, his body and mind.

    His addiction had spiralled out of control. He lashed out at former friends, Mr Big Sam, Mr. Hendry, and Mr Hodgson even the media were all blamed for his self-inflicted financial demise.

    Bitterly he was forced to return to his former home a bitter, twisted and lonely man. He felt like failure. He was right. He couldn’t help but notice as he peeped at his neighbour, through the tatty net curtains, that while he thought the midas touch that he briefly had would never leave him, Mr Claret had been quietly doing very well for himself.

    He now frequently he see’s Mr Claret having to sell his cars a HotJayRod and an Austin. Screaming “ha ha what are you going to do without it now!?” Only to be dismayed by the performance of the new Vokes-wagen Mr. Claret has.

    He still trys to make himself feel better about the “old days, when I had loadsamoney”
    But Mr Claret is not impressed. He didn’t dismiss his friends through the lean times and is very proud of what he’s achieved as many people compliment him on his success.

    This only enrages the embittered, longing for the past Mr. Rover has he constantly shouts over the backyard wall that all Mr. Clarets achievements will come to an end. “it wont last. It wont last” “the only way is down for you” “what if you fall ill!?”

    While the future for Mr Claret looks rosy, doing what he’s always done. The New Year looks bleak for the Mr Rover as he’ll be forced to sell what few assets he has left, in his empty shell.

    His brief flirtation with the high life has ruined Mr Rover. He now cuts a hollow, bitter, curmudgeonly, figure. He desperately clings on, in vein, to the hope that his neighbour Mr Claret will see misfortune.

    Christmas in Mr Rovers house will be cold, empty and empty. And when, not spent reminiscing of Christmas’s past, endlessly twitching at the moth eaten net curtain hoping, hoping, hoping that his neighbours self-made achievements will end.

    Mr Claret will have a fantastic Christmas

    you really should spend as much time commenting on your own stories mate......really!

    no one is taking away your teams achievements thus far but come on, al this effort on spoil us Mr Carrot.
    Get back behind the curtain Ebenezer!!!!!!!!!!!!
