I had a visit from the garden fairies as well, they distributed--very sensitively-- a heap of mulch. I think I know who it was, but they obviously wanted to do something good without praise, which is really noble.
One of the nice things that does happen is the building of relationships with people who were not part of your world before BC. In a strange way, getting rid of people who are not who you thought they were is also rewarding. Disappointing on occasions, but you end up in a better place in the long run. Trustworthiness and honesty are invaluable traits.
