We are celebrating our 18th Birthday at CBSL Accountants!

18 years ago today, my son Ollie was just one month old. It was a Tuesday, and after doing some work I put him in his baby carrier and went for a walk.

Those of us with children in their last year of school might be ‘enjoying’ their battles with writing their personal statements for university applications, or indeed as part of their CV’s.
