Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle all the way to Christmas, well it’s another day closer anyway I hope your Christmas shopping is going well, or have you finished?
Why don’t you take a break and put your feet up, grab yourself a drink and read all about a ‘SJI Holliday’ kind of Christmas……
What is your favourite Christmas memory?
Waking up to find a fully erected Sindy House (and finding out years later that my dad had been forced to build it up after getting back from the pub late on Christmas Eve)
Where will you be spending Christmas?
Probably at home with Mr H – we’re having a very quiet one this year where we’ll mostly be working… as we’re going to be in Chile for a couple of weeks earlier in December.
Do you have any Christmas traditions?
Not really, but I get a bit annoyed if I don’t receive at least one Chocolate Orange 🙂 Oh, and me and Mr H always go to the panto! (Oh yes we do!)
What was your best ever Christmas present?
Probably that Sindy House…
What was your worst ever Christmas present?
I can’t remember. I think I must’ve blocked it out!
Favourite Christmas tipple?
Hmm… it’s a toss up between Baileys on ice, or a nice glass of sherry (the only time of year that the latter is a socially acceptable beverage).
What are you hoping for this Christmas?
A chocolate orange.
Have you got a Christmas message you would like to share with readers and bloggers?
Whatever you’re doing, and whoever you’re with, I hope you have a relaxing and peaceful time. With lots of books… and a chocolate orange.
