OK, our fourth guest post is from the lovely Sharron who writes the sassy blog Looking Fab in your 40's
Admittedly, Sharron and I haven't been following each other as long as some of my other "guests", but I just love her sassy blog; written for 40-somethings who don't want to start dressing like their spinister aunt of 70!
Also, she hails from my part of the world, and often her posts remind me just why I want to return ;-)
Here's a peep through Sharron's window on Christmas Day in the UK.
What does Christmas mean to you, or can you take it or leave it?
Christmas is very important but if I didn't have four children it might not be!
What are you hoping to find under the tree this Christmas?
I have asked for lots of new make-up, so I am really hoping to get that and try out some new products
Flats or heels on Christmas Day?
Flats, I can't cook in heels!
What will be your Christmas outfit be this year?
A jersey or knitted dress, something nice and comfortable
Do you serve anything unusual for Christmas Day lunch other than the traditional turkey and Christmas pud?
Just the traditional Christmas lunch , nothing unusual
Nat King Cole, Michael Bublé, Handel's Messiah or Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker Suite?
What one book do you hope to receive this year?
There are no books on my Christmas list this year
The beauty product you can't live without over the festive season?
I can't live without a decent hand cream
What do you buy the girlfriend who has everything?
A Diptique scented candle
If you could spend Christmas somewhere else other than the UK, where would you choose?
New York; it's a no-brainer!
How are you hoping that this Christmas will be different from previous ones?
I'm not hoping it will be different from previous years. All I ever want is for my kids to be healthy and happy. I have enjoyed every Christmas the same since first becoming a parent 22.5 years ago!
Thank you SO much Sharron for giving us this peep into your Christmas Day. I wish you a wonderfully "chic" festive period, and hope that 2012 brings you everything that you wish for (and if that includes another pair of Jimmy Choos or a Chanel bag, so be it!).
