Welcome to day 14 of the Christmas Blogger Q&A. Today’s Christmas Q&A is with Katie Louise from Life of Kitty.
Life of Kitty
I am a self-proclaimed cat lady, fitness addict and wanderer. I just love to be outside, exploring new places and keeping fit. Life of Kitty follows my life, my running and my adventures.
Question 1 – What’s your Christmas tradition?
It has to be the quiz games – we love a good test of knowledge in this family. We always pile into the dining room and sit down to a game of trivial pursuit after dinner, either in singles or in teams depending on how many of us there are. Not Christmas if someone doesn’t get annoyed at an ‘unfair’ quiz question!
Question 2 – What is your favourite Christmas indulgence?
The cheese board! Whilst playing the aforementioned quiz games, we’ll pull out the cheese, crackers and chutney. I’m definitely more of a savoury kind of girl.
Question 3 – What is the best gift you have ever received?
You know I think I’d say my kindle, just because that one was completely unexpected. Nowadays we just make a little list and the family choose something from that. When I got the kindle one year I was just really surprised and I still use it to this day – probably 5 or 6 years later? (Yes, I’m still using a Kindle 4!)
Question 4 – Are you an early gift buyer or leave them to the last minute?
Oh this depends. Last year I was really good and early, but the year before I was last minute. This year… Well, I’m hoping to start it soon so let’s say early and hope for the best!
Question 5 – Do you have a favourite shop to buy gifts?
I love looking in Debenhams because their gift range is always full of such random things. I always end up just wanting everything for myself! I think they are great for Secret Santa.
Question 6 – Is there something which you always wanted for Christmas but never got?
Sylvanian families! I can see now that they were expensive, and would be to keep collecting, but oh I really wanted them when I was younger haha. The house just looked so cool.
Question 7 – What is the most thoughtful gift that you brought someone?
I made a memory album once, and I thought that was lovely! It was well received anyway. Always space to add more too!
Question 8 – If you could be in any Christmas movie, which one would you be in?
Hmm I’m gonna go with Home Alone, just because I think it’d be awesome to set-up a load of traps haha!
Question 9 – What is your earliest Christmas memory?
I remember one year sharing my bedroom with my brother because my Granddad was staying over. We woke up stupidly excited to see stockings at the end of our beds, stuffed with presents. Of course, we dived into them. One of my presents was a watch… And I realised that it was pointing at 3am. Yeah, we had to try get back to sleep and pretend nothing happened.
Question 10 – What makes Christmas special for you?
I love the whole Christmas feeling. Seeing lights everywhere, being cosy, having decorations and really just being able to spend time with family. We sit down together more to eat and to watch films and play games, so it’s just nice.
What exciting things have you got planned for 2018?
I’m looking to start up a photography challenge for the year, with either themes for each month or week. It’ll be something you can follow on Instagram, and join in if wanted! More info coming soon hopefully…
