The Verdict

Rather mundane I'm afraid and definitely something of an anticlimax when it comes to updating. The Hot Shot London Barrister turned up which was a good start obvs. We had a conflab and decided on our approach. Given the last minute nature of ... Read more

I don't want to be overly 'Polly-Anna ish' but there's just a chance of maybe a possibility of hopefully a flicker of a glimmer of a light at the end of the tunnel. The Worker Friend has fixed the land line. Also looks like he's fixed th... Read more
