Not an issue for me anymore :( but when my mum was alive I always bought cards a year ahead because they were not usually out here in time.

I know... it'll be my first without my mother. Went into Clintons in London today and had to walk right back out again because of the 'Mothers' Day' stuff everywhere. :( :( :(
