It’s 1929 and it’s Christmas

Once again I’m adding another Advent Continuesentry  to our Photo Challenge at  Weekly Prompts, the site I share with GC. You may remember that Gerry and I extended our Advent photo challenge right up until Christmas Eve. Check it out.  This weekend another Advent Challenge will be added.

My personal challenge is to see how many posts I can link to the Advent challenges before Christmas eventually arrives!

Last Saturday I visited Harewood House with my eldest daughter Victoria. Harewood is the home of the Earl and Countess of Harewood and for the second year running the house is open to the public for the Christmas period. This year the theme is Christmas Dreams 1920s style.

Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge Advent

The Saturday Photo Challenge on our other site Weekly Prompts is ADVENT . GC and I chose this challenge not only because of the season but also to fulfil a request from a fellow blogger.

This is my own contribution to our challenge.

Mostly, the UK lights up the season of Advent in a subtle way, both privately and publicly, and our cities, towns and pretty villages shine bright.

 Occasionally, if you are lucky, you might spot a house that is lit up, and as the saying goes, ‘Like a Christmas tree!” Read More…

Awe and Wonder

“This magic moment, this day, this season, will never come again. Treasure it, and treasure your children, who make it special and memorable!” ~ Unknown

The Saturday Photo Challenge from our site Weekly Prompts, is Magical Places. GC tells us about his own magical place, a little wooded area where he loves to sit and unwind and he asks us to share pictures of our own magical places.

Do I have a magical place, somewhere private where I sit alone to unwind? The short answer is no I don’t. Do I know of any magical places? The long answer is take a look below!

Leaving aside the religious denotation, what could possibly be more magical for young children than the exciting run up to Christmas.

Yesterday, during a morning out with two of my daughters, the local garden centre became a magical place when I witnessed moments of awe and wonder from three of my youngest grandchildren.

Standing Still

After knocking over an extra-large brightly lit reindeer, both children were told to stand still. Evie demonstrated how to pretend you’re not being told off; you simply close your eyes!
