For me the best bit about Christmas is being a complete slob at home with my family and pets dancing to Mariah Carey and Wham.
“Are you going to leave the house?” my parents ask me.
“Why would I if everything I could possibly need is here?” I reply.

By this time I have done all my Christmas shopping to beat the claustrophobic stores and frenzied Santa helpers so I like to take my time gift-wrapping. Paperchase has to be one of my favourite shops, in which I like to buy single overpriced paper and cards and sparkly things to attach to my presents. Also, when I have time, like to make some homemade gifts for family and bake lots- it’s the country girl that comes out in me while I move home for Christmas.
If only there was snow this year to go sledging and pretend even more to be in the Wham- Last Christmas video.
Seven days to go people, seven sleeps too until big S comes too!!!
