Are there friends or family you only catch up with once a year and it happens in December?
I have a couple of friends and an Aunty that I write copious amounts of words to but it only seems to happen when I write out their Christmas cards … the whole year condensed into 1 envelope and 1 postage stamp.
My mum usually talks to my Aunty so my Aunty probably knows stuff anyway but in some ways I find it cathartic to write it on paper and pass it along, as in this year is pretty much over.
My friends moved away, one I worked with before I was married and the other a school friend that moves back my way periodically depending on where work sends her.
As you know I like to make my cards and send them on, I just find there is something nice and personal in the written word.
Or do you just get together with various friends once a year for a face to face visit and it seems you have a different friend to meet every other day?
