The author always enjoyed a sense of freedom, whether roaming around the Somerset countryside as a child or later on, living offshore with her husband and three daughters on a boat. She considers nothing strictly ‘out of bounds’, and for seventy years no-one has stopped her in her tracks. Thank You for My Dinner really sums up the dichotomy of her life – an upbringing steeped in Victorian-based principles and the free license to go her own way, which was generous even by twenty-first century standards.

This is the story of Celia’s early life coupled with a trip down the river, never completely grown up, always looking for adventure, not anticipating danger, but keeping a sense of fun and a smile through various struggles – and surviving enough to say ‘thank you’ at the end.

Celia Louise Paris grew up on a farm in Somerset during the 1950s. She was fortunate to attend a school in her small village and, inspired by her music teacher, went on to study for a London University Bachelor of Music Degree. Teaching first at an ILEA comprehensive school and then at a convent in Dorset, she left just before the birth of daughter number one in 1985. Celia, her husband, and their three daughters have moved house fourteen times, perhaps the most unusual was to live on a boat in Essex. For the last six years, the couple have lived in France.
