Tuesday Photo Challenge – Holidays

Frank’s challenge this week is to bring out the magic of the holidays.
I mentioned a little while ago that it wasn’t until I was in my 50s that I realised reindeer were real.
Being able to feed and pet them that day in the market square was magical for me, but sadly we had no photos.

Fast forward to last year and seeing the automaton reindeer in the garden centre, but again, no camera to take pictures.
This year we were ready, and when we visited with our neighbour, Hubby took some photos which I’ve already posted.
The magic of Christmas is paramount in my heart more than ever now, and I felt quite tearful watching the models singing ‘Baby It’s Cold Outside’.
I find it sad to a degree that some children don’t experience half of what I feel at this time of year. I know I’m a sentimental ninny who wears my heart on my sleeve sometimes, but little things like huge displays in a garden centre intended to enthrall the kids certainly knocked the socks off me.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
