You can't go wrong with a little bit of Chris Rea and Driving Home for Christmas.....
Hot chocolate, egg nog or mulled wine?
Well a couple of weeks before Christmas I went to the Manchester Christmas markets with the lovely @Greeny_bird and we tried and tested the mulled wine. Cherry and Blueberry to be exact. Here's the proof...
When do you put your decorations up?
Usually a week before Christmas but this year it was 2 weeks and the tree is still looking good. We always choose a big tree, it's compulsory.
What's your favourite Christmas tradition?
Christmas Eve has always been my favourite day. I like to enjoy it, sit back with a good film and nibbles and let the excitement of what's in store build.
Have you ever gone Carol singing?
Yes as a child but never since. My singing sounds pitch perfect in my head but to others, and I quote 'sounds like singing when you've got your hand stuck in the toaster'. I think that explains things well enough.
When did you discover the truth about Santa?
I can honestly say that as far as I can remember I've known the truth. Mum says a boy down the road told me when I was little. That's boys for you!
How do you decorate your Christmas Tree?
Well when the brood were knee high our tree would be adorned with the fabulously creative decorations they'd made at school. Now, it's baubles, chains and a little tinsel. The picture doesn't do it justice and the top of the tree isn't in the picture as it's quite tall. See above, compulsory.
