No. 1 Magazine - - COVER STORY -

When puttingI was out a mince child pies Christ­mas­for Santa Eve and meanta car­rot for Rudolph. And of course, a drink too – which re­ally de­pended on what Santa was in the mood for. Some­times it was milk but some­times it was whisky. Our tree was cov­ered in home­made dec­o­ra­tions – in fact my par­ents still use most of them. Some of them I made in pri­mary one! The best present I got as a child was a mi­cro­phone with two ped­als – one for clap­ping and one for cheer­ing. That’s maybe where my love for the stage came from! My Nin­tendo 64 was an­other high­light. I’m not sure if it was for my brother, or a shared present, but we were to­tally ob­sessed with Su­per Mario. I would usu­ally say I hate Christ­mas shop­ping but I’m learn­ing to be or­gan­ised since I had my wee boy. This year I’ve been shop­ping for the last two months. But be­fore he came along I’d nor­mally be shop­ping fran­ti­cally two days be­fore. When it comes to present wrap­ping my hus­band Jamie spends a lot of time

wrap­ping. His presents are beau­ti­fully neat with per­fect bows, but I’m rub­bish. The sel­l­otape will have been cut with my teeth and there might be holes in the pa­per. I’m left­handed, so I’m blam­ing that! We’ve just moved into a new house so we are still work­ing out our dec­o­ra­tions but we have some lovely out­door lights. When we were grow­ing up we would open our presents then go out vis­it­ing so we would al­ways have a new Christ­mas out­fit. So I’m stick­ing to that tra­di­tion – I’ll get a new fes­tive out­fit this year.

I think on Christ­mas Day you should start the day with choco­late. So my first bite is a choco­late crois­sant.
