Every year my late (she usually was) Dear (not) Great Aunt Halitosis would religiously hang all her Christmas cards from long ribbons suspended from the picture rails in her drafty, dilapidated old Victorian house. Very impressive. Hundreds of them. All the more surprising because the mean old bat hardly knew anyone at all. Save for family and the milkman. And he might have been family but no one dare ask.
Anyway, one year I noticed that some of her cards were beginning to look a little tired. Also some appeared to have been sent to her by relatives sadly long since departed. I made the mistake of mentioning this to her, across the dinner table one evening.
For this sin I received a sharp whack on my ear and was sent to bed early. Before The Lone Ranger and Tonto appeared on the telly. I never forgave her.
Well if my Great Aunt could do it then so can I. The following are all cards I penned around six years or so back. A shame to waste them I thought. My apologies if you've seen them all before. Many times!
