I recently sent £50 through the post recently, split into two birthday cards for niece and nephew (Mr Tarte's side of family) - so £25 each, in a card. The woman at the post office seemed a wee bit shifty, so a few days later I texted their mum to ask if the money had arrived. No reply text, let alone a thanks. In laws,eh? They honestly make me wonder why I bother.
