A childhood memory of Christmas
Christmas has always been lovely in our house. Mum makes it very special for us all. It’s the best day of the year. I’m really a big kid so I’ll be up early in the morning, saying to my family: “Wake up please! I want to open my presents.”
What is the best Christmas present you ever received?
I got a doll’s house when I was younger and I have still got it.
Who will you spend Christmas 2017 with?
I’ll be spending it with my family and friends; they always make it special.
What will the day be like?
Chaos. Fun and games and eating a lot of mince pies! We always eat too much lunch and then fall asleep on the settee. But we do also have a big dog-walk with our three dogs in between.
Will you train on Christmas Day?
No, I will have Christmas Day and Boxing Day off this year but will be back to training very soon afterwards. 2018 is a very exciting year with the Commonwealth Games in April which I am really looking forward to.
What does Christmas mean to you?
Christmas is special because it brings family and friends closer. It’s just a really nice day.
