Is this helping at all? I lost my way a couple of times (making up words, forgetting it was about the EU etc) but I think I bought it back round in the end. And if it’s made you feel even 1% less crabby, great.
Shall I do you now? I’ll do, say, two? Then we can make closing arguments, meet somewhere in the middle, thank each other, say our bye-byes and I can jump in the car and go to squash. Sound good?
