I have been in a very rocky relationship over the past decade. There has been tears and tantrums, weekends away to make up and try again, bruises and scrapes, times where I have simply run away and given up on it for a bit and lots and lots of swear words…and no I am not…

I remember the first time I met Jo, we were in posh glass walled offices in Central London having a development meeting and she rocked up looking absolutely amazing.
