Some one needs to have a chat to the greeting card industry as a whole. I went looking for a condolence card today and every one had a verse inside. They all seemed to have flowers too, except for one that had a cartoon of a bird with an umbrella. No, I don’t get it either.
I don’t want people to write my cards for me. I want a nice understated image, preferably not of a flower and I want the inside to be blank. The lack of this sort of card, though, made me do something I hadn’t done in years. I sent a letter. I had to buy the letter pad and envelopes (Basildon Bond, white) but it let me say what I wanted to in a very non-floral way.
And it got me wondering when I wrote my last letter.
Sadly, I have no idea.
