My Mum always said


When I was a kid that I should thank people when they’d been kind enough to let me play round theirs.  That’s what she said…Marcel Proust said this:

Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.

Lots of people let me play round theirs this year in both physical and metaphorical terms so this post is a list of  the gardeners who grew my soul this year.  Some did lots and some did little; most importantly they all did something.

If you’re not on the list and you think you should be, let me know.  If you are on the list and don’t think you should be, tough…you influenced me in some way that means I have to thank you.
