Why you should say ‘Thank you’
I’m a huge stickler for Thank You Cards. It doesn’t take a lot to say thank you when someone does something nice for you and to let them know that their efforts have not gone unnoticed. And quite frankly it’s just good manners!
Who doesn’t like getting a little thank you in the post.
Easier said than done!
This is something I would like to instill in my daughter from an early age, but it can be incredibly painful trying to get an early writer to do them without a lot of coercion and frustration. It was her birthday last week and she received some lovely presents from her friends. So, we needed to sit down and do some Thank You Cards.
Some people feel that Thank You Cards need to be handwritten, yes I do agree to some point, but I personally don’t mind if the thank you is in the form of an email, text message or commercially produced . As long as people say ‘thank you’. But for the love of god please do not send e-cards, I have a personal hatred of them. nothing worse than having to click on a link and waiting ages for it to load to see a dancing cat!
As always, I did a little cheat. Using a photo that I took at the party, I had a little post card (pack of 10 was £6.99) created using PhotoBox and added some text on the back so all she needed to do was address them. She also added some stickers to personalise them. Another bonus is that the children who came to the party now have a little keepsake.
