An interview with Father Christmas

Yes, you read that right. I managed to track him down and ask him some questions at this busy time of year. :)

Thank you for taking time out at this busy season to answer my questions.
1. Do you prefer Father Christmas, Santa or St Nick.

I prefer Father Christmas

2. Where do you live?

I have an ice palace at the north pole.

3. What are you reindeer called? Do you have a favourite one?

Their names are Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner and Blitzen. My favourite is Prancer because he is so lively and full of spirit.

How do you manage to deliver all the presents in one night?

It needs a lot of organisation, and I rely on lots of Mums and Dads to get it all done.

What do you do on Christmas Day?

I go to the Christmas services at my local Church.

How many elves work for you? Do you pay them? Do they get a day off each week?

There are 9 elves and they all get the national minimum wage, with Sunday off each week.

Where do you go for your summer holiday?

Lapland (quite anonymously, of course)

If you could redesign your outfit (seeing as how its based on the colours of a certain fizzy drink), what colour would it be?

It would be purple and gold. I really fancy royal colours!

If you weren't Father Christmas, what job would you rather be doing?

I love the  pleasure on the children’s faces when they open their presents. No other job would come close!

What would you like for Christmas?

An Amazon voucher.

Would you rather we left out cookies or mince pies, milk or coffee, carrots or sugar cubes for the reindeer, roast dinner or fish and chips

Fish and Chips

Finally, what would you like to say to everyone out there?

Remember that Christmas is the Birthday of Jesus

thank you for your time.

PS. I'd really like an office this year... and more book sales... and chocolate... and socks. I only have three pairs of socks that don't have holes in them.

A Tuscan Legacy book one - That's Amore

THAT’S AMORE A Tuscan Legacy Book 1

When Rafaele and Jayne meet again two years after dancing the night away together in Tuscany, is it a matter of fate or of faith? After deciding to take a six-month sabbatical, Italian lawyer Rafaele Rossi moves from Florence back to Villa Rossi in the middle of Tuscany, resigned to managing the family farm for his aging nonna after his father’s passing. Convinced a family get-together is what Nonna needs to lift her spirits, he plans an eightieth birthday party for her, making sure his siblings and cousins attend. The Keswick jewelry store where Jayne Austin has worked for seven years closes its doors. Jayne takes her generous severance pay and heads off to Italy—Tuscany to be precise. Choosing to leave her fate in God’s hands, she prays she’ll miraculously bump into the handsome best man she’d danced the night away with at a friend’s Tuscan wedding two years ago. She hasn’t been able to forget those smoldering brown eyes and that rich Italian accent. J…

A Tuscan Legacy book 4 - Ti Amo by Marion Ueckermann

She never wants to get married. He does. To her.
The day Alessandra Rossi was born, her mammà died, and a loveless life with the father who blamed the newborn for her mother’s death followed. With the help of her oldest brother, Rafaele, Alessa moved away from home the moment she finished school—just like her other siblings had. Now sporting a degree in architectural history and archaeology, Alessa loves her job as a tour guide in the city of Rome—a place where she never fails to draw the attention of men. Not that Alessa cares. Fearing that the man she weds would be anything like her recently deceased father has Alessa vowing to remain single. American missionary Michael Young has moved to Rome on a two-year mission trip. His temporary future in the country doesn’t stop him from spontaneously joining Alessa’s tour after spotting her outside the Colosseum. And being bold enough to tell her afterward that one day she’d be his wife. God had told him. And he believed Him. But Alessa shows …

Justice - Emily Conrad

Blurb: Jake thought he was meant to marry Brooklyn, but now she's pregnant, and he had nothing to do with it. Brooklyn can’t bring herself to name the father as she wrestles with questions about what her pregnancy means and how it will affect her relationship with Jake. If Harold Keen, the man who owns the bookstore across from Jake's coffee shop, has anything to do with it, the baby will ruin them both.
The door opened, and Brooklyn ducked through. The only mascara left on her face was a faint smudge below one of her eyes. That could only mean one thing: she was pregnant. She took an uncertain step toward him. He wrapped her in his arms, but even so, she’d never been further out of his reach. “I can’t do this,” she said against his shoulder. “You can.” He leaned his head to look at her face. Her closed eyes seeped tears. “We’ll do it together.” Liar. He couldn’t help her with a baby. That job belonged to Caleb. Yet, he had the sense that the promise answered his prayer. It …
