Christmas Stockings – I still have them, even for my big kids now!
Putting furry antlers on the dog to make her look like Rudolph.
What would be your perfect present this Christmas?
Having all the family together on the day is pretty perfect to me.
And a lovely gift would be something like a minibreak to look forward to when it’s cold and grey in January.
If you could spend Christmas anywhere in the world, where would you go?
I’d stay in Northumberland with my family. I love a traditional Christmas at home. I’ll be the one cooking roast dinner, after a few festive lunchtime drinks in the pub with our friends. The village has a really lovely atmosphere at Christmas.
I might be persuaded to go away for New Year though, that’d be fun. Perhaps somewhere snowy.
Who would you love to see play Emma, your main character, on the big screen?
Ooh, maybe the actress Eleanor Tomlinson, who plays Demelza in Poldark. Emma has a mane of red hair and is independent, at times feisty, and wants to protect her chocolate shop and her heart.
