    Hi Clare, I love your post!

    Elbows on tables? – never under any circumstances (unless you’re about to pass out from over-consumption!)

    Thank you note in 24 hours? – for a dinner party, um yes?

    Should a woman wait for a man to extend his hand? – no it’s actually the other way around, however I think this rule is being relaxed now?

    How did I go?
