I guess I have to say the wife, don't I

Depends on what you definition of 'soulmate', do I think that two people can be very compatible and live closely together for years in relative harmony, then yes I do believe.

Do you believe in love at first sight??

I believe in an attraction at first sight, I think love comes later and is much deeper, sometimes it's a connection a shared joke or a common interest that binds love, IMO.

Favourite breakfast to have?

I absolutely LOVE singing along to things at top volume, even if I don't know all the words. I work from home and sometimes I'll put on a playlist of 80s power ballads and bellow along to them

If you had to compete in an Olympic sport for some reason, which one would you go for? (Summer or winter Olympics)

Martin Luther King, to see his view on the current situation.

What is the order of your Christmas sustenance? As in do you have a pre breakfast selection box or chocolate coins (which is completely normal by the way)

Not sure if you mean Christmas Day or in general over Christmas!

I'm going to go with Christmas Day..........breakfast is usually something quick as between kids opening presents and getting ready for church (10am) not much time, last year was pancakes with jam. When we get back, some of the guest come with us so will start on the snacks, peanuts, pringles etc. with some craft beers.

Lunch starter are usually brown bread with salmon & melon with Parma ham, break then for a bit to open presents. Main course is traditional, turkey and all the extras. Another break to open more presents, desert is again traditional, mince pies, Christmas pudding, ice cream, whipped cream & pouring cream!

As we mightn't have desert till say 6pm, it usually just crackers and cheese then around 9pm and more mice pies, turkey sandwich is anyone really hungry. Chocolate's from then on.

Beverages is wine through out the day after the beers and then some Baileys and ice in the evening.

If Christmas could be any other time of the year, which would you choose and why?

Summer! I always think it's a shame for the kids who get bikes and outdoor toys off Santy to not be able to get out and properly enjoy them! Would also be nice to sit outdoors and enjoy our after-dinner drinks al fresco

Can see the appeal alright. Had one Christmas when I was much younger in Australia, BBQ for Christmas Day, drinking outside in shorts etc. Was very different obviously.

ps..cough.....no question....cough

Whoops!

If you could celebrate Christmas anywhere in the world (apart from at home), where would you go?

I think I'd like to do somewhere to see the Nothern Lights (Maybe Lapland)
I'd like to go to New York for the New Year tough.

What was your biggest Christmas disaster?

The only time we’ve hosted Christmas dinner our guests showed up late and extremely hungover.

They weren’t up for anything post dinner.

Did you ever think you heard Santa on Christmas morning?

That is scandalous - I'd have been fit to be tied!

No, but my mam used to tell us fantastic stories about her seeing Santa as a kid, you know the type where you can actually imagine being in the room with her and seeing him yourself! They were my favourite stories as kids!

And on that note, favourite Christmas Story/Book?

The night before Christmas. Got a card version of it for the kids a couple of years ago and make a point of reading it every year on Christmas eve for them.

How soon is too soon to have a tipple of the alcoholic variety on Christmas day?
