  1. Home made cards are the best. My weirdest card this oil tanker somewhere off Iraq.

  3. I always keep a list of who has sent Christmas cards but never thought of doing an audit - I'll have to get them out of the recycling bag and do it! I think maybe we have too much time on our hands at this time of year, wouldn't you say?

    What a very strange card, Rosie!
