Today I saw a different side to my solicitor. For 12 months she has been a clinical, robotic creature. Today, at possibly our last ever encounter, she was a human. She seemed interested in hearing what I had to say. She told me stuff about her life. We laughed. My, how we laughed. I felt quite emotional when she bade me farewell. Doubly so when she informed me that a bill is on its way. I began to think that this chapter of my life would never draw to a close. But it’s almost over. I can move on.
