    Default Story Time: A Mince Pie Too Many

    I've taken a mini-break from my usual web-related activities recently, and got to stretch my creative legs with a bit of humorous storytelling.

    Here's the Christmas story/poem I wrote with my sister called A Mince Pie Too Many

    There's a token bit of scripting in there to craftily link it in to web-world; Santa's sleigh moves along the bottom of the screen to show how far down the page you've read (a JavaScript progress bar)

    Hope you find some amusement in it. There's a PDF download that fits on to 2 sides of paper - convenient for printing 1 sheet double-sided and slipping in to a Christmas card!

    Enjoy!
