All done and dusted.  I shall be e-mailing all those who took part, over the next two days; the subject will show as CSH, just so that you don't delete the mail without looking at it.

I'll try that again!

All e-mails have now been sent out to tell you to whom you should send your card, I hope that you all have a pleasant surprise when you open them.  If anyone doesn't get my e-mail, please PM me with your current e-mail address!

Have fun!

I'll try that again!

Danuta, we both think it might have had something to do with the Welsh Rarebit we ate yesterday - possibly the cheese or the white bread - who knows?  We were both in a great deal of pain within a few hours and we both had upset digestion today...one of the mysteries of growing older.confused

I'll try that again!

Joanna, he doesn't do the racing himself, he just encourages the boys in his team.  He has Rheumatoid Arthritis so wouldn't want to fall off a bike...

I'll try that again!

Can I just check - is there a certain date we all send our cards on or is it just when we usually would?  In which case mine will probably arrive at the recipient about new year!!  big_laugh whistle doh  Trying to be better on the planning front this year but then I often try to be better on the planning front.  Whether there's ever any practical upshot of the trying remains to be seen.  big_laugh

As you would normally.  It might be an idea to check the last posting dates with the Post Office, especially for those sending overseas.  I think that USA last date is 10th December and Europe is 12th, but I checked some time ago and might have mixed them up.

I'll try that again!

wiggy

 

I have just now realized that it is the first of December today!  So get your card exchanges ready and go to Post Office to check the last dates for Christmas posting, the date is in the blue/grey box underneath the red box where you typed your enquiry.

I'll try that again!
