Anyway, I was going to post this photo and then changed my mind, thinking that it might look a bit dodgy! But then I thought, Heck, we're all friends here! So this shows me (about 13 with tomboy haircut) and parents opening stockings. I always remembered this photo as having all of us in it, but you've got to imagine a 10 year old brother and 8 year old sister at the other end of the bed. As bossy big sister, I usually managed to bag the best spot!
And it's not just me who loves stockings! Read this --> All I want for Christmas is a stocking, an article by Matt Seaton in today's Guardian!
