Today IS the 15th. November, isn`t it? Or have I lost a month somewhere?
Why do I ask?.......
...opening my mail, brought by the postman a few hours ago, I find my first Christmas card! I couldn`t believe it.
And, no, it didn`t come from abroad, it came from someone in a village about 6 miles away from here!
I`ve not even had my birthday yet, that`s still 9 days away. I definitely don`t expect to receive Christmas cards, before I`ve received Birthday cards. (That`s of course assuming I`ll get some birthday cards!)
So, what am I going to do with the Christmas card? - stick it in a drawer until a lot nearer the time, I`m certainly not going to stand it on the mantlepiece yet, it would look ridiculous so early.
