On Thursday evening, I wrote out my Christmas cards. I know it’s really early but we’re now past Thanksgiving so it isn’t obscene.
This year I rather did a cull of my card list. This is something I’ve always resisted but I realised that I was sending out nearly 120 cards (insane and unsustainable level of wifework). So people I haven’t seen or heard from in over 5 years aren’t getting a card – this is against the spirit of Christmas, I know.
As it is, I’m sending 62 cards within the UK and 7 overseas.
The thing is, I really want to just put them in the post now but don’t want them to arrive before 1 December (even that is a bit early). Perhaps I’ll post them on Tuesday. Or perhaps today. I use second class stamps (why does second class exist? I can’t work it out) so they should take a bit longer to arrive.
