<t>OOh Ladybird, you have worked so hard to get to this point.

Clear groundrules on both sides need to be in place, for it to work, I would imagine.

Well done Audrey.

Oh Scally, I wish you well with your battles, please keep us posted. Your son is lucky to have you fighting for him. I only find battles satisfying when I am making progress/winning ... I don't seem to be managing much of either with officialdom at the moment.
