I simply love playing cards, especially gin rummy which my wonderful late Grandma taught me to play. I used to love playing with Grandma in particular, especially when I beat her!!! These days, I never go anywhere without a pack of cards - her cards actually - and one of my favourite things to do with my young daughters is to take them out for a hot chocolate and a game of gin rummy in a local cafe! Kind of old-fashioned compared to all the iPad games they also like to play, but it's special time for us all. They seem to enjoy it almost as much as I do!
Oh, and the five of hearts has always been my favourite card. No idea why.
