Well you will have heard of 'A Book at Bedtime' so why not a post at bedtime - to be frank, my lovely day yesterday was very enjoyable but although I slept well I have been tired all day today and have done just one or two little jobs and that's all.
I had a communication by post this morning which needed an answer - I intended to leave it but then I thought 'No, get it out of the way now' and I did and was then able to file it away. Then I got out my Christmas cards ready to write - found one or two which needed a letter and managed to type one letter and one card. Writing letters has to be done by typing as my handwriting is now unreadable and so difficult to do. But at least I have made a start and I intend to hit it hard tomorrow.
That's all you are getting today - apologies but so ready for my snug bed. See you in the morning.
Imagine me as a little dog at your feet, like the tombs of ancient knights, Weave. After you have done that I will try to do the same, but I don't hold out too much hope.
I think some days are meant to be lazy days. Time just to take things as they come and not be concerned with getting much accomplished. Too often we fill our days with "things that must be done" in capital letters, no less, when there are sometimes better, more restorative things that we could use that time for. Maybe they don't produce "product" or a check by the side of that task but are none the less useful and needed.
I'm afraid that all my Christmas cards are sent by Email these days; part laziness, part economy.
No-one can go full on every day!
Down days are good for you.
I do email quite a few, but send as many cards and letters as I can, not just this time of year.
Our main Xmas expense..apart from heating!!
Wow!! Thos is really amazing! Would love to live there.
I always find that, much like wrapping the presents, writing Christmas cards takes me much longer than I anticipated. X
Because the majority of my Christmas cards go to the UK, and I was anticipating longer delivery times than pre-Brexit, I wrote and sent my cards during the last week of November. Handwriting - especially if I want others to be able to read it - requires quite an effort, and then it‘s queuing at the post office. But it is all worth it in my opinion.
I have bought a beautiful set of Christmas cards, they are of the curlew, a bird on the way out sadly. Hope you woke up this morning full of vroom!
I wish a couple of people who write to us at Christmas would type their letters. One chap's writing has got so tiny that we have to get a magnifying glass out. And he's such a big chap too!
I keep putting off writing my Christmas cards. Too lazy plus I wanted to wait so that I can put our change of address inside. Next week, definitely.
I still send Christmas cards by post, often with a messagewritten in the card, and none say "Xmas" or "Seasons Greetings" or even (this word should be banned and I only use it here as an example, but we actually did get a card one year that had it) "Crimbo".
So many people send those awful electronic Christmas cards these days. Well, my strategy is not to open them and to keep them in my in-box until July or August and open them then. I believe they get a message telling them I've read it. PS - I mean July or August of the next-but-one year.
If I remember rightly - little dog at feet means he died peacefully at home rather than in battle.
Tasker - the Crimbo I would have been tempted to "Return to Sender" - agree absolutely with your sentiments.
I have been writing cards all morning - just stopped to answer these.
Veg artist. Because I have BET I have to write very slowly but at least I can control the size.
Not sure about te vroom Thelma but love the curlew. We still have a few round here.
Librarian - I buy my stamps on my Tesco delivery.
Is that right, Weave? I didn't know that.
I don't subscribe to this whole Christmas palaver, an out-dated, over-hyped affair with a lot of exaggerated emotion in my opinion. Roll on the New Year.
I am working on my Christmas cards today too! and maybe a walk if it isn't too cold out. I never heard of "crimbo" and had to google it. Still don't get it!
More or less my sentiments Derek.
Thanks everyone for responding to a rushed 'book at bedtime'
Your mention of Book at Bedtime reminded me of that - I didn't even know it was still going. Turns out there are old episodes on the web - I might even listen to some.
