Festive Feature: Kirsty Ferry



Welcome to a very special Festive Feature on my blog, where every day up until Christmas some of my favourite authors will be sharing what they love most about the festive season, including their favourite films, food, music, presents, memories, books…Plus much more!

December has well and truly arrived and to celebrate in style here’s the fabulous Kirsty Ferry…


I love the build up to Christmas and the anticipation of Christmas morning. I love going to the family carol service at church on Christmas Eve and– our newest tradition – treating ourselves to a Chinese takeaway afterwards. Last year, Santa himself delivered it. Well –it was our usual delivery man, but he was wearing a very jolly Santa suit. On Christmas Day, I love seeing if Santa has visited our house by creeping downstairs and checking if the Christmas tree lights are on. He always used to leave them on when I was little, and he still does it now for my son, (even though he’s 13 and probably thinks I’m certifiable). If there is a twinkling coming through the lounge door, that’s how we know Santa’s been. But I must say my very favourite part of Christmas is Christmas Day evening. I am always guaranteed to get the following items: new pyjamas; new chocolates; new bath products; new book. What better way is there of relaxing after all the excitement than lying in a hot bath, reading my new book, eating my chocolates – and fitting in a cheeky glass of fizz at the same time? Then I snuggle into my new pyjamas and I’m happy. It’s usually a fail-safe formula. But one year I dropped my new paperback into the bath and that wasn’t much fun at all… that’s why I never take my kindle in there!




…And let that be a warning to us all! Thanks Kirsty!
