What sits on top of your Christmas tree?

A ancient china fairy doll my mother gave me years and years ago. She’s showing her age these days - missing an arm and her wand - but I wrap her in silver and gold tinsel and she sits there reminding me of Christmas’s Past.

Favourite Christmas song?

I’m not really musical but I do like the traditional carols - especially Hark the Herald Angels

Favourite Christmas movie?

Can I have two please? White Christmas and The Muppets Christmas Carol

Favourite festive foodie treat?

Scrambled eggs and smoked salmon for breakfast, washed down with a glass of champagne.

The best part of Christmas is…

Family time.

The worst part of Christmas is…

The expensive commercialisation of everything.

Your best, and worst, Christmas present?

My best Christmas present has to be my son Nicholas born on Boxing Day. I can’t remember a bad present.

When do you do your Christmas shopping?

After our wedding anniversary on the 4th December - which leaves me exactly three weeks to do the shopping and get organised. The bonus is everywhere is really festive by then!

Any Christmas Day traditions?

Just champagne! And more champagne!

Favourite Christmas book?

I don’t really have a favourite.

Favourite Christmassy book cover?

I love the cover of Julia Williams’s ‘Coming home for Christmas’. For me with its House, snow and a family in the foreground it’s just perfect.

Book sat at the top of your Christmas in July wish list?

A Kitchen in France: A Year of Cooking in My French Farmhouse by Mimi Thorisson. It’s full of the most glorious glossy pictures that just have me itching to start cooking.

When did you find out Santa wasn’t real? Or is he real?

I hope for the sake of all the children in the world that he’s real.

How would you spend your ideal Christmas?

I’d rent a large house somewhere in the country with enough rooms for all the family to come and then I’d plan the best Christmas ever! Everyone would arrive Christmas Eve afternoon and for the next three days there would be log fires, a huge Christmas tree, lots of good food and wine, lots of laughter, a visit from Father Christmas for everyone. Best of all there would be no family arguments!
