1.What’s your favourite Christmas memory?
My favourite Christmas memory was seeing snow for the first time in Germany when I moved back there in 2003. That was the first time I experienced a “white” Christmas with all the traditional German experiences like having an advent calendar, getting gifts, going to Christmas markets and drinking warm mulled wine.
2.Where are we likely to spot you this festive season?
Mostly likely at home with my extended family cooking and having a laugh about anything and anybody.
3.A song that perfectly describes your December mood?
All I want for Christmas is you by Mariah Carey. This song always sets the mood for Christmas for me.

- Oxlade – Shugar
5.What are you reading?
I am currently reading “The Prince” by Niccolò Machiavelli. It’s been on my reading list for the longest time and I’ve finally got to reading it.
6.Any survival tips for getting through family dinners/lunches/or having extended family staying over?
Everyone knows staying with family over an extended period can be exhausting with tensions arising. My tip is, take a breath to help you relax and take some quiet time when needed.

A two-week vacation on ship cruise.
