Hi readers, it’s Kerry and William here this week thinking about what would be our best and worst ever Christmas presents!
For me, Kerry, the best would be an amazing beach holiday. Somewhere warm, sunny and relaxing, where I didn’t have to lift a finger. There would be wheelchair access down to the golden sands and deep blue sea, where I’d go as soon as I got there, to lay in the sunshine.
I’d stay for a month in a villa, taking close friends for fun and support. We’d explore the local culture as well as party. The icing on the cake would be to also have a chef, housekeeper and beach butler too!
The worst Christmas present would be having to spend time with people who think they are above everyone else, or being with some of the people in programmes like ‘The Only Way is Essex’ where it feels like they are acting to get viewers, rather than being themselves. It would be so boring and I’d rather be with humble people who are doing interesting and worthwhile things.
As for me, William, the best present I could ever have would be a lifetime season ticket to Liverpool FC! It would also include an environmentally friendly private jet, to take me to all their games and back. My seat would have a good view too!
The worst Christmas present for me would be going on the Wheel, that programme with Michael Macintyre. The pressure of all those questions and maybe getting them wrong would be too much!
We hope that’s got you thinking about what might be your own best and worst Christmas presents ever. If you are with friends and family tonight, or with friends out in the pub sometime, ask them this question and see what comes up!
