't was after midnight, we'd again worked late, the lights in our Christmas tree were on, some candles spread their wonderful light and made everything flickering sparkly.
We relaxed in front of the fire, to unwind and enjoy, before going to bed.
The previous night a dusting of snow had whitened our world, the day was bitterly cold with a biting frost.
I heard a tinkling bell in the silence of the night, a slight knock on the door...
I opened and there was Father Christmas, he was on one of his pre-Christmas rounds, to see how 'good' everybody was, what they deserved, or not... (he doesn't always get it right, but maybe that's his helpers?) and he had been caught in a blizzard!
Saw our lovely inviting home...
I quickly invited him in, he took of his hat, the gentleman that he is... I saw how wet and icy it was and offered to hang it up to dry.
I fixed him a hot drink, we sat and chatted, he asked how my photography was going, (he really does know EVERYTHING!), was I happy with my new camera? And why had I not waited... he would have put one under the tree for me...
I blushed and confessed that I'm not the most 'patient' of people. He smiled and stroked his beard.
Well, warmed up and dry, he was ready to go, lots to do, deadlines to meet, gosh it all sounded so familiar...
A hug, I waved him out, another bell-jingling, ho-ho...then he was gone... that's when I woke up!
I wish you all the very best, may your wishes come true, and thanx for all your kind words, time. Very much appreciated.

I say a few things...
IT IS STRICTLY FORBIDDEN (BY LAW!!!) TO USE ANY OF MY image or TEXT on websites, blogs or any other media without my explicit permission. © All rights reserved
Why not view the set as a slide-show?
Also I often upload more than one image at the same time, I see a tendency to only view the last uploaded...
