    Family means the world to me and living in a different city to them makes this time of year super special. My ideal christmas would be with them, sat around the table, taking the mic out of each other and eating more than our bodies can physically digest! My happy christmas place is right there!

All the best plans get changed, so yes my perfect Christmas would be the stability and confirmation that it could happen . I don’t mind the where or the weather just family time all together .

Surrounded by snow, and kept warm with log fires crackling with fir cones . A christmas tree stands proudly in the corner , piled high with gifts waiting to be unwrapped and anticipation hovers in the air – xmas is about to begin.!!!

There’d be a huge roaring fire and I’d be sat, cat on my knees which would be covered by the softest, fluffiest blanket, in a deep window seat reading a book whilst sipping a hot chocolate with cream and marshmallows of course.

    I’d love to spend Christmas at Lapland one year ❤️ I’m a massive child so I’d love it!

    In a hermit cottage in the middle of nowhere, preferably open countryside, with plenty of excellent fine food and plenty of books! No company needed!
