Anyhow, our regular cleaner is off home for a holiday -- maybe for good; she's from Lithuania and apparently has a husband and daughter waiting for her back home.
Nice card and a tip: completely reasonable.
Twenty minutes playing with Google: about par for the course.
The look on her face when she found I'd written "good luck" and "thanks!" in Lithuanian in her card, and also found a proverb whose translation is "Everywhere is good, but home is better": absolute gold.
