I just found out that two family members who are related to me have special days coming up.

My uncle’s girlfriends little girl Ruby is making her confirmation on April 24th.

And my sister’s partners sister’s child is making his first holy communion in May.

That means I’ll need to give them each a card.

And the cards have to contain money in them.

I won’t have to put a lot of money in the cards, since they aren’t close relations.

20 euro will be enough I think.

And I thought we didn’t have any confirmations or first holy communions in our family this year!

Guess I was wrong!

  1. I send few cards to relations (brothers, one SIL as she gets stroppy if she doesn’t get one (she’s 80), sister, niece and great niece) but never any money. That stopped many years ago when my great niece (now a mother with a nine year old son) pouted there was no money in her birthday card and what was I going to give her.
    I hear little from my family, and the only reason I send a card to my niece and her daughter is because they do contact me occasionally and have bothered to tell me their address.
