VERITY LUSH: I’ve reached the age at which I wear thermal undergarments when it’s cold

Have your say

Lots of people will be after a bit of extra cash and thinking about taking on some extra seasonal work.

As a student I worked in my local New Look to help pay for all the Christmas presents.

It was okay, but not a patch on a job that came up recently at a Titchfield garden centre. Garsons was looking for someone to walk its reindeer!

We spoke to the manager on the show to find out what walking a reindeer entails, and yep, it’s exactly as you imagine, lead and all. This sounds like the ideal holiday job – fun, festive, and completely different to your average day job.

Plus you get to put on your CV that you are officially one of Santa’s Little Helpers. So if I disappear from the radio over Christmas you’ll know where to find me.
