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.

To my eternal shame I forgot the last UK mothers' day my mum was alive and she didn't make it to the US one.
