I am delighted to advise you, dear reader, that the former Miss Chap has finally relinquished her claims over territories, chattels, lands and properties belonging to the Empire of The Chap.
The government of choice has been restored to Chez-Chap. (IE: Me.)
It has taken a year of my troubles and time to wrest what was always rightfully mine from her bitter, cold clench (afterall, It was me wot paid for it, guv!).
There was, unfortunately, a consideration involved, but let's face it - even Judas Iscariot got paid for his troubles.
