Champagne by Liz Haigh

While doing the weekly shop at the supermarket, Margaret noticed champagne was half price. She decided to buy a bottle, it’s nice to have one in the house for when you have something unexpected to celebrate. When she got home she discovered her husband had died of a heart attack.
