Gold star!

Best - - BEST FOR REAL LIFE -

fam­ily tra­di­tion that’s taken a com­pet­i­tive turn. Though adding the fin­ish­ing touch to our fes­tive tree started off as a joint ac­tiv­ity, over the years, my brother, James, and I have de­cided be­tween our­selves that who­ever gets this hon­our is au­to­mat­i­cally deemed the favourite child, even though I’m now 26 and he’s 28! Some­times, this in­volves sneaky tac­tics and de­vi­ous plan­ning, other times, it even in­volves brib­ing our mum, Jane. Ei­ther way, this year, James, it’s mine!’ Mil­lie Gooch, 26, life­style as­sis­tant
