What is your most enduring Christmas memory? I don't think I could single out one particular moment, maybe remembering back to my childhood when Christmas was a magical time, later enjoying it through my son’s excitement and these days through my grandchildren’s eyes.
Do you have a favourite piece of Christmas music? Silent Night, but don’t ask me to sing it solo.
Do you stick to the old family traditions? Apart from giving present and celebrating with lots of food, no. My grandmother used to stand to attention during the Queen’s speech but no one else did, much to her disapproval.
What makes your mouth water at Christmas time!? I love all Christmas food.
How soon do you put the Christmas tree up and when do you take it down? It varies – we haven’t put one up yet. It has to be taken down and all Christmas decorations put away before Twelfth Night.
