+++ What is so special for you at the Advent and Christmas time?

Most people complain about the cold at Christmas time but I love it! I love how cosy it is at home and I am blessed enough to live in a beautiful city so I love to do Christmas shopping in the dark with all the pretty Christmas lights. Christmas for me is a time of reflection and a time to take stock of the year, it’s also a magical time for the children , especially when they do their Christmas plays…very cute!

+++ Do you have a Christmas tradition?

To cover the Christmas tree in chocolates and make sure they get eaten at least 2 weeks before Christmas! I also love the Christmas films that come out every year, it’s all part of the fun. I absolutely love the book “the snowman” listening to the soundtrack always gets me in the mood for Christmas

+++ Do you have a Christmas style?

I love to indulge in the colour white at Christmas time, to make the house look like it’s been covered in a blanket of snow, there are so many beautiful ways decorate the home without having to use colour, I love to have Lot’s of candles and soft lights everywhere. My house is always so full of people and children that it’s nice to keep the decorations simple.

+++ What is your favorite memory as a child  about Christmas ?

I was a very imaginative child and I loved to spend hours outdoors playing and dressing up, I always loved to enter into the spirit of Christmas and I would be excited about the big day for the whole of December! I am the youngest of 5 and we would all have to take our pillow cases down on Christmas eve and in the morning they would be full of presents… Also my mum is a keen knitter, so we always had homemade stockings full of treats.

+++ When you place on your Christmas tree and how it is (he) decorated?

The tree is always in the dining room and this year I bought a little Bengal kitten for the children as an early Xmas present so we have to keep him out of there as he likes to try and destroy it!

+++ What do you do on Christmas Eve.?

I live opposite a lovely old church and I always go to midnight mass on Christmas eve and we always let the children open a present each before they go to bed!
