absent I still regret telling DS to send his grandma (my mother) a birthday card when he went off to uni last year, instead of picking one myself. Apparently he sent one of a very old lady holding her skirts up and dancing a jig whilst hanging on to her zimmer frame! she was furious with ME and requested that he stick to flowers on his cards in future.
He was rather upset as he had genuinely thought that she would love to be thought of like that, a sprightly old lady.
I think I shall send one on his behalf again, this year, just to be on the safe side. It's a real pain in the butt, but I ring them both up before every relative's birthday and Father's day. DBH rings them up before Mother's Day and my birthday. It saves so much hassle, it's worth it.
