Thank You

I am a stickler for thank you notes and have always insisted that the girls write theirs promptly, by hand and with due consideration.

Having been ill for days (I'm still a coughing, wheezing wreck), I haven't supervised the writing of their letters but they have made a start.

No matter how much they love their presents, no matter how grateful they are to the recipient, there comes a time when writing multitudinous 'thank you' letters become a chore for children.  And the longer they leave it, the more of a chore it becomes.  So, I was grateful that today Lucy received a delightful thank you letter in the post.  Lucy was thrilled and now she really understands why we send them and can't wait to write her own.
