It’s been Christmas time which can only mean one thing. Thank you letters.
The things that send your godparents or aunts and uncles an update on your life, but that also cause you a great amount of stress and panic as the days pass by without writing them.
Sometimes it is forced – the present wasn’t actually that great, or you have it already or your thankfulness is so unbelievably true that it ends up sounding sarcastic.
My trouble is the extensive use of the thesaurus on ‘thank you letter writing’ days. I loose all brain power and result to googling synonyms for ‘good’ or ‘nice’. Is this obvious to the recipient? I wholeheartedly hope not.
Our family like to get thank you letters of in as quick a time as possible as once, a while back, one aunt asked if we’d even received the gift as she was worried it hadn’t arrived because the thank you letter not having arrived yet. It was 4 days later.
Today held the thank you letter writing task and a task that also sets itself is remembering what people gave you. Luckily we all seemed to have similar, very fun and nice gifts (if you’re reading family members!) this year – so we could answer each other’s questions. Which resulted in a rather successful session.
Hopefully my use of the word ‘great’ wasn’t too excessive… Or obvious to the reader.
