This week’s photo prompt is provided by Sarah Potter.
Few houses have proper chimneys, but this one keeps theirs in tip top condition.
For one endless night, it acts as a beacon to thousands as the sound of distant bells echoes through the dark sky. Magic dust will dance around decorated halls and a special visitor will sup on his warm milk and cookies. Soon children. Soon.

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! We have recently lost our beloved dog 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, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. 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.

    What a lovely take, Di. It will be here before we can blink!

  9. Cute tale. We really will have to evolve the story of Santa now so many houses don’t have chimenys.

  10. Hard to believe Christmas is only a month out. Time has passed strangely this year. Fun story!
