Thank you so much for your intelligent advice throughout this process - I've really enjoyed our conversations and you've helped me come to really pragmatic decisions that are right for me, whilst reassuring me on my interpretation and knowledge of the law. You've also laughed with me during this serious process, which helped immensely with the resilience and perspective - it has felt like having a guardian angel. So thank you so much for visiting as mine during this period.
