It has been a tough year for many people, where family and friends have proved to be the foundation to everything. To all those people, I thank you, but in particular to my husband David, whose advice and care I value above all else, and to my young scamp of a son, who provided no practical help in the writing of this book, but much joy and endless entertainment.
