Freezer Ep 32: Drinks with Biggles

Elliott Price accepted the invitation for drinks at Sir Murray’s house with as much good grace he could muster. He was not in the mood for another one of Biggles interminable air force stories, told with ever-increasing grandiosity. Elliott’s disdain was made all the more profound by the news that they would be joined by […]

Freezer Ep: 31 Dinner with Uncle Elliott

When Sky’s grandfather died some years ago, her father John Price, as the oldest son, had automatically inherited the family estate: A quaint practice, which the aristocracy of the old country and the squattocracy of the new still had in common. The original Price property was one of the largest and most prosperous during the […]

Freezer Ep 29: Comes around

The Principal of Lushers College for Ladies called Ruth Goldsmith into her office the Monday after the equestrian centre inauguration fiasco. “What do you know about this, girl?” Principal Clutch demanded as she put an orange “whoopee” fart cushion on the desk in front of Ruth. “Nothing Principal,” Ruth replied, adding truthfully, “I have never […]

Freezer Ep 28: What Goes Around

“Mrs Purvis,” Principal Clutch called out to Raelene and Annabelle Purvis as they walked towards the horses, “a few words if you wouldn’t mind” Raelene turned and walked over to join the Principal of Lushers College for Ladies as her daughter seized the opportunity to escape. “See you later,” Annabelle yelled to her mum as […]

Freezer Ep 27: You are cordially invited

The weekly school assembly meeting in the main hall at Lushers College for Ladies was as boring as the last assembly and the one before that. The Principal, Mrs Clutch, praised the good works of the favoured few and prattled on, as usual, about gloves and hats while the girls in the audience passed notes […]

Freezer Ep 26: Purvis, Price and Cow-Pats

NOTE: Sorry for the delay since the last episode of Freezer. Put it down to the pressure of work. I hope that those who are following the story will feel this episode about cow-pats and bullshit is worth the wait. **** The surprise visit by Regal Mortgage’s Sir Murray St Clair left Ray Purvis feeling […]

Freezer Ep 25: Mrs Clutch Requests

The homely, old style wood-paneled Principal’s office at Lusher’s College for Ladies contrasted starkly with the current holder of that august position, Mrs Clutch, an attractive angular woman of 45 whose taste in clothes tended towards the triangular. Mrs Clutch was strict with both her pupils and their parents. Believing familiarity not only breeds contempt […]

Freezer Ep 24: Purvis in Action

Ray Purvis’s visit to the Crystal Shop was less than successful. Sky Crystal didn’t like what she had read and seen about Ray Purvis and didn’t like shopping centres. “They’re just glass and concrete temples to consumerism,” She told Purvis. “A shopping centre doesn’t have to be like that,” Purvis said with as much conviction […]

Freezer Ep 23: Ralph Returns

“How much?” Ray Purvis roared. “I said buy something, not the bloody shop.” Ralph Fly squirmed in a chair across the desk from his boss. Desperate to avoid discussing the details of his exploratory venture to the Crystal Shop, he slid the plastic shopping bag containing the bright crimson pyramid behind his chair and out […]

Freezer Ep 22: Alone

Jane arrived at school late, half way through the day’s second class with the grand title of ‘Social Etiquette”. It was Jane’s least favourite lesson; a total time-waster devoted to the notion of catching the right man. This, combined with the non-existent academic demands of the lesson, probably explained its popularity with Annabelle Purvis and […]
