My husband is eternally grateful to our council, which forbids the owning of any more cats or without doubt we would own many, many more than our neurotic twosome.
However this year's offering was somewhat different. I laugh every time I think of it. The actual card is hot pink but this is what it says...:
Jesus loves me, this I know....Because I was sitting at my computer yesterday plonking virtual books into my virtual shopping cart from Koorong's virtual book store because that's the easiest way for me to total up the cost, my math being what it is, & bemoaning the pile of bills & the need for black dress pants for graduation which precluded my indulging in my obsessive book fetish when Cait arrived with the mail.
These days all the excited looking postage & packaging is generally John's. Anything for me is quite rare [unless I have been virtual shopping virtual book shops!] There is no way my mother could have known what I'd be doing when her card arrived [though knowing me she might have had a good guess]. However when I opened my mail she had gifted me with enough to hit SOLD! Which I promptly did.
I have 3 books on their way. Dancing a little jig here. ☺
