Picture 16 of my advent photos for you is a pile of small presents.
Book and the monthly newsletter. I wrote for the paper for a couple of years ( no pay sadly!) and when they retired a few of us who had subscribed or written for it managed to keep in touch. We've been taking it in turns to write a letter for nearly 15 years now and we do little Christmas presents for everyone They've probably all arrived by now I hope.
I'm feeling guilty because I've failed to send cards to D in Michigan and P in Canada - whoops. If you are reading.... HAPPY CHRISTMAS to you both and to your families! My other penfriend W lives on a windy Scottish Island and a present and long overdue letter was sent that way a few days back, I hope it gets there as their ferry and planes keep being cancelled due to the awful weather. I received a letter and gift from W (Thank you W, had to smile at L having to eat bought marmalade because you sold all the homemade! )
Honestly, what a hopeless penfriend I am! Using the blog instead of writing. Tut Tut
Thank you once again for the good wishes in comments, very much appreciated.
