Card

Unfortunately, I don't  know the home addresses of the majority of blog visitors so I haven't been able to send you Christmas cards. Instead, I have designed this special card for you. Please print it off  - in colour of course - carefully cut it out and stick it to a suitable piece of card:-
Next write inside your preferred name followed by "Season's Greetings" and then "Love from Yorkshire Pudding". When the card is finished, place it proudly on your mantelpiece for family and Christmas visitors to admire.

The idea for posting a Christmas card for blog visitors came from John Gray @ "Going Gently" and the legend, "Merry Christmas Everybody" came from the Romanian "Big Issue" seller on Stamford's high street. The photograph came from The Hope Valley - I snapped it myself a few days ago.

  1. Happy Christmas, YP, It has been a pleasure learning about the real England from you.
    May you and all of yours be well in the New Year.

    P.S. I am carefully cutting out the card!

    1. You could print it off at work when The Evil Assistant Manager is sleeping in his cave with the other monsters.

  3. Thank you YP, and a very Happy Christmas to you, Mrs YP and the two little YP's. Sadly we don't have a mantelpiece, so I'll have to find somewhere else.

    1. Cheeky guy! By the way I was just watching an interesting item on BBC World News with Stephen Sackur - all about First Nation Canadians and their struggles. Very interesting.

      Merry Xmas sir!

  12. I've been riding your blog for few years now, must say I've enjoyed the journey, your walks, your observances of the life around you and your poetry. Well I must be tired tonight, your card brought me to tears. I'm becoming a silly old woman! I want to wish you and your family a Merry Christmas and peace, love and hope for your coming year.

    1. I like the idea of "riding' a blog Wenda - like a surfer riding the waves. It sounds more daring, more exciting than just "reading". I am so pleased to learn that you have found pleasure in this blog. Such comments make it all seem worthwhile. Merry Christmas surf-lady!

  16. It is a beautiful card but I can't print it, as my printer needs either repairing or replacing (probably the latter). However, I very much appreciate your having sent the card out to all your blogging friends, a group I proudly count myself in with.

    Merry Christmas to you, Shirley, and all those who matter to you.

    PS: I know I have once had your address in an email, but stupidly must have deleted it without transscribing it into my address book. I checked this morning because I have something I'd like to send to you.

    1. PPS: Not a Christmas present, by the way, so it won't matter if it arrives after the holidays.

    2. I will check my e-mail links and send my address if you are still there. I hope it's a fat envelope filled with banknotes.

    3. Thank you! Fat envelope, yes; banknotes, no, I'm afraid!
