Tonight I’m embarking on Stage 2 of Project Christmas: the writing of Christmas cards. I have my list all finalised and, as you can see, my materials ready to go. I’m extra pleased that I had all this stationery already in my collection. There was a time when I used to write what seemed like hundreds of Christmas cards to extended family and friends from all our different circles. These days, I’ve accepted that this is neither feasible nor sensible. So this year, in an attempt to minimise the stress of this festive season, I’ve tried to keep the list as succinct as possible: immediate family, the boys, Angus’ preschool teachers, Sunday School helpers and people from our church who’ve lost loved ones this year. Now if only the three little boys upstairs will actually go to sleep, I might be able to make a start.
