After a vicious week of work it was a great relief to attend the awards on Thursday evening .
Stuart McKechnie won the prestigious barrister of the year award , open to all in England and Wales (QCs included).It was a joy to see one so talented and modest succeed . His amazing wife , Lou, was there to see his moment of glory .
Andrew Twambley was a superb chairman and it was lovely to see legends like Geraldine,Hilary and Nick Bevan appear.
There are always surreal moments and this year it was the goody bag which consisted of mints and a screen scraper. What could have been wilder ? A kipper yoghourt and map of Scunthorpe was the best I could conjure up.
