I was listening to a talk the other day on ‘being wrong’. Throughout the lecture the speaker argued that we should all learn to accept when we are wrong and to admit it. It all sounded quite sensible, but as I’ve never been wrong I’m not entirely sure that she was referring to people like me. However, it did get me thinking and I’d definitely like to be more thankful. Or, more to the point – to say ‘thanks’ more.

I don’t mean ‘thanks’ in a ‘please, thank you, thank you, please …sorry-thanks’ kind of British way, but in a straight-up ‘thank you, I really appreciate it/you’ kinda way. I’m genuinely quite a grateful person (and easily pleased) so hopefully it won’t be too difficult …let’s see how I get on.

Thank you for reading this.

Oh, but please be warned – I might balance this with some uncharacteristic straight-talking when I’m least thankful. Mr Postman, you have been warned! Three week late Christmas cards don’t tickle my funny bone. People who sit in the middle lane of the motorway, I’m not very happy with you either…
