Super-stylish mother-of-three, #AureeAngel Lucinda AKA the London Mummy (@thelondonmummy), has already gone into full Christmas mode. She has recently moved to Hampshire and understands the pressure and panic of trying to get organised before the kids break up! We’re big fans of this super-mum who knows how to enjoy a wonderful family Christmas.
What will you be wrapping as a gift under the tree?
Where will you be spending Christmas this year?
We are spending lovely traditional Christmas with my husbands family in Suffolk and then will go to my family in Surrey on Boxing Day.
Do you have any Christmas traditions?
Every Christmas eve we put a plate of mince pies, carrots and sherry by the fire for Father Christmas and his reindeer. Then we read A Night Before Christmas before putting the kids to bed. Once they are asleep we take the stockings that were hung by the fireplace and put them at the bottom of the kids beds, so they can see them when they wake up – filled to the brim!
What’s on your Christmas wishlist?
What’s your favourite party piece?
Favourite Christmas Film or Song?
My favourite Christmas film is Home Alone but after December 3rd I am over most Christmas music!!! Sorry!
What’s the best/worst Christmas present you ever received?
I find socks and books pretty dull – although I am grateful for anything now I have kids and it’s all about them.
Have you ever had a white Christmas?
I don’t think I have ever had one.. holding out for it though, although winters seem to be getting more and more mild!
Is your Christmas tree real or fake?
Real Christmas tree FOR SURE.
Are you planning any New Year’s resolutions?
No New Year resolutions as I can’t keep them so I don’t bother now.
What would be your dream place to visit for the Christmas holidays?
I would love to go to Lapland to see the ‘real’ Father Christmas, or failing that a weekend to the Christmas markets in Europe – particularly Denmark as hear they are lovely and not too commercial.
