Saying thank you

I loved this from my friend Jan Patience's great blog about Scottish art. Harriet Lowther sent thank you letters to all those people who never get thanked - the people who make and provide everyday goods and services that we usually take for granted. The best letter is the one from Glasgow's subway service, who say she's the kindest customer they've ever heard from!
At the end of When I Was Joe I get the chance to say thank you to just some of the people who helped me along the way to publication, but if I took Harriet's approach I'd have written pages and pages - from the lovely people who made my laptop, to my wonderful babysitters, to the journalists who write for my local paper and on and on...
