Dear catsintheattic, nenne and groolover,
The reason that your Christmas cards have not appeared is that I just found them stuffed into my gym bike pannier, rather than my work and useful things pannier, where they have been hanging out for the last seven or eight weeks.
I am an idiot.
I'll try to hold onto them for next Christmas, and in the meantime, expect something random in the post, eventually ;-)
(This is dumber than the time I put my sunglasses in the fridge. They've been in there under my bike seat cover the whole time, which has been resting at the bottom since it's not rained at any time when I have been at the gym, until today, when I got to to the whole 'What?! Oh BUGGER!' dance slightly wet.)
