This post is inspired by something started on that well known parenting site, Mumsnet. Some visionary suggested that it would be a Nice Thing, if Mumsnetters were to send something in the post to another MNer. Lots of people agreed, and after some confusion about who was sending to who, nice things began to fly all over the globe, hither and thither. I was the lucky recipient of a box of chocolate bears, from a very lovely Swiss chocalatier, and some people made things. It won’t solve Third World debt, or poverty, or prevent war, but sometimes its the little things that make the day go a little better.
