4. When do you put up the tree? Around December 20th but before 25th LOL!
5. When do you take the tree down? Just after January 1st.
6. Do you like eggnog? Haven’t tasted it! Can’t say! This is Africa! Cool and cold is the choice!
7. Favourite gift received as a child? A Barbie, can’t remember what she looked like! And a doll given to me by my Gran that belonged to my Mom which I have passed onto my Daughter.

I tried thinking what Christmas would be like in a warm and summery climate and have to say, it was really hard to do...! Not for you, however, you lucky girl!
Have a great great week ahead, Denise.
Your Friend as ever
