Christmas Cards Sent!

Had a rather productive weekend with SJ. I managed to finish writing in all the Christmas Cards we're sending and posted them today. I get such a rush from posting mail, especially a stack of cards that big!

Also got a little present shopping and wrapping finished and gave the apartment a massive clean. And I mean massive, I vacuumed and dusted and cleaned all the doors, door handles, light switches and cupboards, even used glass cleaner on the windows and mirror (though the outside of the windows missed out, they get filthy every time it rains and it's due to rain all week). I even used cleaned all the internal walls with a rag and a white-block.

Was a little exhausting even though the place is so small!

Having a few friends over for a Christmas catch-up tonight, was motivation to have it all done. That said, I've started sorting through my clothes and the guest bed has piles all over it! Will just keep that door shut...


  1. Hej :) Thanks for following me. I'm just curious. How many Christmas cards did you write? It seems to be a lot. I still have to write a few cards :)

  2. Betty, there was about 100. Give or take 5-6 that don't have addresses. Took me hours! Hopefully they are appreciated though :-)

  3. Wow. That is a lot of cards :)

    Were they all hand written or were the messages printed out and glued on?

    Either way ... amazing effort!


  4. All handwritten. I used a thick red calligraphy felt pen to write 'Merry Christmas' and 'Happy New Year' inside each of them (not too creative I know) and then wrote the saluations, signoff and a personal message in black fine point.

  5. Wow, 100, that's so many cards and all handwritten. I'm impressed :-) I'm sure, they all will be appreciated :-)
