Today's first Countdown to Christmas feature is a festive fun Q&A by fellow blogger Shaz from Jera's Jamboree who is always supportive of other bloggers so richly deserved her win as Romance blogger of the year at the Festival of Romance in November.
What’s your earliest or favourite Christmas memory?
My earliest memory was actually leading up to Christmas. I remember feeling unwell and going downstairs one evening to find my mum knitting and sewing dolls clothes. They were beautiful. She told me they were for a friend’s child which I accepted (even though I felt VERY envious). Of course on Christmas day I realised that they were for me. I can remember feeling stunned (it was in those days when you believe everything your parents told you hahaha). Mum had given up so much time to make those beautiful outfits. A treasure trove and a treasured memory.
What are you looking forward to most this Christmas?
My eldest being home for three weeks from Uni! Life just isn’t the same without him …
