Last weekend, I decided to go through my address book and write our Christmas cards. In a Christmas magazine I read recently, one of the tips for destressing Christmas was to stop sending cards to those you had neither heard from nor seen since last Christmas. This seemed very sensible, so I wrote my smaller than usual pile of cards.

Today, I received a card from a girl (well, we were then) I was at Queen Margaret College with in 1987. Pam and I haven't seen each other since then but we do exchange Christmas cards every year, usually with a wee note and a promise to meet up next year, which we never keep. But it was so nice to hear from her, and maybe 2006 will be the year we DO meet up.

I suddenly realised that this is such an important part of Christmas for me, following the magazine tip was just plain daft. Let's face it, I won't get really stressed for a couple of weeks yet, and writing a few more cards isn't going to tip the balance.

So, thanks, Pam, for reminding me about one of my favourite bits of Christmas - catching up with people who are still twenty-one, at least in my head! The card's in the post!
