gifts of love

When I launched our Help Our Hedgehogs campaign in October, and asked if any of you could knit a hedgehog for charity, I hoped I might get a couple in the post. After all, it was asking a lot of you to give up your precious time. But of course, dear readers, I should never have underestimated what a big-hearted and talented bunch you are. Day after day, I’ve had the delight of receiving parcels at my desk, containing your gorgeous knitted animals. They have given me – and the Prima team – such joy. Each one of them represents a true gift of love, showing not just your kindness but also your desire to help save our prickly friends, which are fast disappearing from our towns and countryside.

‘i have so much to celebrate this christmas’

Lorraine lives in Buckinghamshire with her husband, cameraman Steve Smith. Their grown-up daughter, Rosie, currently lives in Singapore. MY SIZZLING SIXTIES Turning 60 is a great excuse for a lot of things. Not just a party (of course I’m having one!), but also saying yes to doing things that I wouldn’t dare do otherwise. I’ve done that a lot this year: I’ve said yes to appearing on Coronation Street, and I’ve even said yes to a cameo in a Bollywood movie. And do you know what? It’s empowering. I’ve always thought, ‘When I grow up, I want to be an astronaut,’ so I’m celebrating my milestone by learning to be one. Am I nervous? Oh yes! But I’m ridiculously excited, too. I’m going to be taken up in a plane where you lose…

winter wonderland

Merry & bright A bold red coat is both festive and stylish, and with a cosy leopard-print collar, this Boden design is hard to beat. Worn with a flattering A-line satin skirt and super-soft cashmere jumper, this is one outfit that’s definitely not just for Christmas. White Christmas A white winter coat looks and feels special, whether you’re wearing it draped over a cocktail dress or layered with a chunky knit jumper (in white, of course!). Pair it with this monochrome maxi skirt and practical (yet very much on-trend) hiking boots and you have the ultimate outfit for a stylish Boxing Day walk. Golden girl Want to look laidback, yet still knockout? This suit is the ideal day-to-dancefloor outfit. Wear with a jumper and trainers during the day, then switch to glam heels at night.…

our amazing santa babies!

‘I couldn’t believe I was giving birth on Christmas Day’ After trying for a baby for three years, Lauren Robson, 35, and her husband John, from Chatteris, Cambridgeshire, were in for a big surprise. ‘It was Christmas Eve, the tree was twinkling and all my gifts were wrapped. At 34 weeks pregnant with twins, it had been exhausting getting everything ready, but now I was so excited. The next day, my husband John and I would be heading to my parents’ house for a meal and celebrations; our last Christmas together before I became a mum. I headed to bed, but I’d only been asleep a few hours when I woke to wave-like pains in my stomach. “John,” I gasped, nudging him. “I think the babies are coming.” They weren’t due until 4…
