Mrs. Lear was much exercised this morning.
Two mothers of newly born babies had not replied with a thank you letter ( or a text or an email) for the gifts that had been sent.
One is the wife of her godson.
The other the daughter of one of her best friends.
I'm old fashioned, but a written thank you letter still brings pleasure to many people - especially we nearly-pensioners.
Of course,people are much more ungrateful nowadays for things than they used to be. We were with some friends recently whose daughter had received gifts for the birth of her son.
She took them all back and changed them.
Still, manners maketh man.
And in this case, might end up getting you written back into the will.
