Christmas cards, Birthday cards, get well cards........etc
Do you send them or would you send them if your partner did not send them.
Most men I speak to would not bother and it's unlikely I would bother if swmbo did not do it, changes of addresses, dates to remember etc..... too much for me.
Am I wrong in thinking that the majority of cards are sent by women ?
The only exception I can think of when I would send a card is following the loss of a relative or close friend and that would be in addition to contacting those most affected by it.
I tend to be the one who keeps tabs of birthdays, etc. chez Mav.
There is a card shop not too far away where decent ones can be got for 39p upwards rather than the £2 or £3 from such places as Clinton Cards.
As for posting I will try and hand deliver where possible.

Nah, just a message on facebook or send 'em a tweet!
I blame the bloody Victorians and let's face it, it's all got out of hand what with mothers, fathers, and aunt fanny adams days.
It's all humbug.
Seriously though, Mrs Minivanman buys all the cards, and Mrs Minivanman then forgets to send them
Don't limit the friends you haven't met with arguments you'll never have.
Christmas,birthdays, Easter, anniversaries etc - nah, but SWMBO does.
For a one off like bereavement or moving house I design one on the PC.

My missus sends cards.... I buy her one for her birthday, and for the wedding anniversary, ... but for others "on my side"... I use
Much more fun going through them to find something, than standing in front of the card rack waiting for "the all clear" before bagging the cheapest... ! !
SWMBO and I exchange the same cards each year for Birthdays and Christmas, and have done so for best part of 30 years. Getting a bit dated now. but neither of us object or consider buying new one's.
And before you ask, it was Mrs P who instigated it not as you might think me.
When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.
