Happy New Shedworking Year

Just a few words to say thank you to everybody who has made Shedworking such a pleasure to put together again this year, not only at this main site, but also at reddit, twitter, Facebook, pledgie,, and brightkite (and not forgetting Bookshelf). Particular thanks as always to that marvellous promoter of shedlife Uncle Wilco from Shedblog and, and to our literary editor Sarah Salway and garden shows editor Emma Townshend. Large thanks too to all those of you who have added comments to keep the shedworking conversation going or emailed me with suggestions for the site including Elspeth Thompson, Annie Leymarie, James Alexander-Sinclair, The Garden Monkey, Jay Nigrelli, Patricia Debney, Tim Baber, Alan Bucknam, Lloyd Alter, Justin, Greg, Bill Kratz, Suw, Nikki Spencer, Ben Locker, Chris Routledge, Juliet Doyle, and Bill Dockery.

Large thanks to the many other supporters of shedworking and homeworking in general for companionship, ideas and general fun: the list is too long to include everybody but special mentions for Emma and San, Grant, and Jeff plus Steve Cowell for help with The Shed. And last but not least, many thanks to the advertisers who have helped to keep the site going in 2008 with their generous ongoing support.

I look forward to meeting up for much more of the same with all of you in 2009 and maybe we'll finally get that book published...
