As we rapidly approach Christmas day and the chance to eat as much as we like, we thought we should take a few moments to ask our team at the Granary what it is they love about the festive season…..and last but not least, our Operations Director, Amy!
What’s your favourite thing about Christmas?
Being home with my hubby and Mills
Fav Christmas song / movie
What’s the best/worst present you’ve ever received?
Best - Three years ago, my brother flew home from Australia, and I hadn’t seen him for two years. We had a big family Christmas at ours, and that was really special. Last year me and Mills got matching Barbour jackets 😉 , which was a close second!
Worst – We were having our en-suite renovated last year and two days before Christmas our builders left, my husband was working late and came home to find the house completely flooded. We had a faulty tap. It was an absolute nightmare, but the show went on and we hosted for 10 guests! We laugh about it now!!
Do you have any traditions that you do every year?
It’s my northern family’s tradition to have hot beef and gravy rolls with chips on Boxing day. It’s a great hangover cure and usually enjoyed in PJ’s watching Christmas movies! No calorie counting that day.
Favourite food to eat at Christmas?
Crisps and dips
Roses or Quality streets?
Christmas eve – in or out?
In an ideal world, it’s a dog walk with Mills and then a bottle of red in a village pub with Hughesy, before coming home to chill. In reality I have usually travelled back to Birmingham with a car full of unwrapped presents, so spend the eve rushing around trying to get organised!
Christmas jumpers – yes or no?
Yes, I treat myself every year!
Christmas day – up early or prefer a lie in?
I always attempt a lie in, then its bacon sarnies before a long walk with Mills
Your fave Christmas movie?
Love Actually or The Holiday.
HAVE A WONDERFUL CHRISTMAS AND NEW YEARS EVERYONE!
EAT, DRINK AND BE MERRY!
LOVE, THE GG’S X
