Fandango’s choice today is RELATIVE.
Christmas is the only time I have contact with my ‘full’ family.
My list is getting shorter, and I think we’ve probably got more friends that relatives now.
I have an uncle and aunt left on my Dad’s side, and an uncle left on my Mum’s. The cousins, distant or otherwise disappeared off my radar decades ago.
It’s so easy to lose touch which is why I add a newsletter to my cards to let family know we’re still around and what we’ve been up to over the past twelve months.
Last year was our first Christmas here, so a change of address went in with the cards too.
We didn’t hear from everybody though.
I bought some Christmas tags yesterday, but have no intention of using them on parcels as they will make beautiful centre pieces for my cards when I make them next year.
2018 isn’t over yet and I’m planning for Christmas 2019! Does that count as being relative?
