The Advent Candle nearly gone…..


The time is 23.55 gmt….the Advent Candle is nearly down to its last flickers..

A few more minutes and it will be Christmas Day.  Time to celebrate.

I am mindful that not every one will be in a position to have a wonderful time…..but if like me you are fortunate to be able to enjoy the festivities,  please spare a thought for those who cannot….and help if you are able.

24th December

  1. Well said David. May you and your family have a great Christmas and a happy, healthy New Year. Thank you for your images which I enjoy every day, but mostly fail to tick as liked. I promise to do better in future!

    • Depends on your own wishes and what you see as ‘normal’. 😀 These days remind me I am lucky. We were ‘fed’ news yesterday about people getting into debts. The end of the story was to get a buffer. Having been on the dole myself for a long time I know it is impossible to create a buffer (money in the bank) because your income is too low for that. A growing number of people on benefits but also working people are poor these days. I am a pensioner now. I have a wee more now to spend and I could help friends with some extra luxuries they cannot afford. It was returning a favour as they were there when I needed help a few years ago. But a good feeling also.
      Have wonderful days no matter how you fill ‘m. 🙂
