A Very Amara Christmas With The Design Team!
Sleigh bells ring, are you listening,
In the lane, snow is glistening,
A beautiful sight,
The Design Team are happy tonight,
Walking in a winter wonderland…
- How does your team embrace the spirit of the season in the office?
Grace: I personally like to crack out some Christmas jumpers – spreading festive cheer with each jingly step!
Emily: Food, food and more food!
Elle: A constant box of Quality Street sitting at the end of the desk!
- Opening Christmas presents on Christmas Eve. So wrong or so right?
Grace: Oh you cannot do that! It’s a sure-fire way onto the naughty list.
Emily: Definitely so wrong, you have to wait until the morning then do them all at once in a mad flurry!
Elle: All good if it’s Xmas PJ’s!
- Are you a pro present wrapper or do you fail miserably?
Grace: I really love making my presents look awesome – so much so, I often end up being asked to wrap other people’s stuff for them!
Emily: Sadly I massively fail at wrapping, I don’t have the patience for it.
Elle: I’d say I’m a bit of a pro – this year I’m going environmentally friendly :)
- What’s better: dinner or leftovers?
Grace: Team leftovers! I’m a fan of having ‘Christmas Dinner Soup’ when I’m back in the office between Christmas and New Year.
Emily: Got to say leftovers, Christmas wouldn’t be the same without a buffet that pushes you over the edge.
Elle: BOTH! Can’t beat a turkey sandwich on Boxing Day though.
- Fondest memory since last Christmas?
Grace: Welcoming my first ever nephew, Bowie, has been an experience like no other. I’m officially allowed to refer to myself as a ‘Cool Auntie’ now.
Emily: Getting our pet hedgehog Hobnob was probably the highlight of this year!
Elle: My wedding day without a shadow of a doubt! Best day of my life!
- Favourite thing about this time of year?
Grace: For me, Christmas is about spending time with my family, rubbish TV, twinkly lights everywhere, cheesy jumpers, those classic songs… Christmas is just so special!
Emily: Having an excuse at any time of the day to reach for the baileys.
Elle: Staying in, making home all cosy with plenty of candles and spending time with friends and family (usually eating).
