procrastinate much?

I have a neatly wrapped parcel to send mum as a late birthday present, and with it is a card with a beautiful photo of a baby on the front and the word 'Congratulations' on the inside. My message will be 'You're going to be a grandmother' with exclamation marks and stuff to keep it upbeat and exciting, and to distract from the dread I'm feeling at telling her.

I'm stuck at Step 1 though, which is the writing the damn message. Step 2 is actually sending the present, and given that mum's birthday was a month ago and it's taken this long to take the card out of its envelope to write on it, it will likely take twice as long to shove the parcel into the mail slot at the post office.
