    Christmas Card reminiscing
     


    Mmmm... I've got too used to stamps and envelopes being 'pre-stickied'. This year's Christmas Cards from Survival International come with old-style gummed envelopes. Remember them. Leave a taste in your mouth. Might gum your teeth together if you don't converse for a while. How primitive.... Ahem.

    Spent the afternoon doing the annual deed. Nice to look at envelopes bearing names of folk once in everyday contact, now in obscure corners of the world like Kent. To think about them awhile. It's been a big year for many of my 'peers' as we all turned forty. Some of them are grown-up enough to be bringing their adolescent offspring to the match with them these days. Some of them are sad enough to have signed up to Friends Reunited (I know because I looked). And all of them have either less hair, or more in places previously uncharted. Starting to go a bit around the edges if you (rudely) look at them too closely. But they'll always be teenagers to me...
