It's my step-father's birthday next week and my mother-in-law. Today was a day of wrapping and posting.
My step-father's shirts just came out an awkward shape so in the end I'd didn't plaster the parcel in stamps and used the Royal Mail's dull but functional on-line postage.
My mother-in-law did get a lot of stamps on her card though. It costs a fortune to send her anything, she lives closer than my step-father but across a national boundary.
