A big thank you to lots of people


The Family Law Awards were on Wednesday night (I was too tired and emotional yesterday to post anything). I would like to give a big thank you to every person who voted for me.  If you are on Twitter, you already know that the votes were not wasted (though I was).  But not everyone is on Twitter, so I wanted to let you all know that it was a successful night and that I am very grateful for your vote and support; but even more importantly for the time you give to read and think about the pieces and your comments – even to my most argumentative readers, debate and thought and time is really valuable.


And huge thanks to my team, who also picked up an award, and who are not only great people to work with, but great people to celebrate with too.  And to my long-suffering wife, who has to put up with my weird random ideas and my occasional ramble of “There’s this amazing case I’ve just read about, you really won’t believe what happened”.  And to Martin and Mary and David Bingham for sharing the evening with us, and I can’t forget to thank Adam Smith for being a very cool guy indeed.


Finally massive big up to Harj Kaur, my great friend and supporter who wasn’t able to be there with us, but was in spirit.


{I apologise to anyone who hunts the Net looking for Humblebrags, this really isn’t meant to be one. I am just actually very pleased to have had an experience in family law that was nothing other than enjoyable and want to thank people who made that happen.}
