It's been a bright cold day here - but still no sign of snow! It would have been an ideal day for
being out and about taking photographs but I had no car this morning as I'd left it in town after
my night out with my friends. The rest of the day was taken up with tidying the house and
shopping. Luckily I've done most of my Christmas shopping (I think) so I didn't have too much
to do. The shops were busy, but perhaps not quite as busy as you'd expect on the Saturday
before Christmas.
Although Santa no longer pays a visit to our house, I like to hang up this stocking. What would
I like to get in it? Time, I think, as there never seems to be enough time to do all the things
I'd like to do. Or maybe some time management skills so I could make better use of the time
I have. Although I'm quite good at making use of my time at work, having realised that things
always get done if you tackle them methodically no matter how snowed under you might feel,
I'm not nearly so good at making the most of my time at home.

delightful, cosy scene...that's an insightful wish for more time...it can so easily slip away...the key is just to enjoy the moments as they come...V

Great narrative today! I hope you do find some time in the coming year! Beautiful stocking and a very good photograph!

Wonderful shot of the resting angel. I think time tends to fill up with tasks regardless of how much of it you have. More is never enough.

This is a really lovely image, very peaceful. I love it.

I think you chose the perfect wish gift. I can't manage my time at home, either :-)

There never seems to be enough time in the day, lovely Christmas image.

Take a tip from your lovely angel: home is where you relax, chill out, and realise that even if you run short of time today there'll always be 24 hours in the next day.

I didn't know Santa had such fancy stockings.
