    Hello

    It was my 24 th birthday about 3 weeks ago ,

    I went to see my grandad today , I haven't seen him since my birthday, he said I have several birthday cards at his house .I felt sick with nerves during the drive to his house, I was trying to plan in my head how I should act as I open the cards. I just knew I would appear disappointed after opening the cards as I usually do each year
    Because
    A. Never as much money as I'd hope or expect for
    B. Sometimes cards have no cash in, at all

    Anyway, got to his house and he hands me the cards, I go bright red even before I open the cards, so I open the cards,cagain with a look of disappoint on my face

    Realise that you can always get cash. A handwritten card from your grandfather is priceless. Once you appreciate this, you'll stop looking for the money and start seeing where the real value lies

    literally just don't expect money? keep the cards in the envelopes to take them home if you're worried but you're unlikely to miss money, and if there is money in your gdad's card and you miss it he will just tell you
