It's a difficult time, and winter is coming.

Jennifer and Amber - diabetes and HIV

Meet Jennifer and Amber - partners for life.

Jennifer has spent the last 8 years climbing the corporate ladder in a busy city law firm and made senior associate last Christmas.

Jennifer enjoys learning about products and services in her own time, doing her own comparisons and research and then preparing her list of hard-hitting questions, before talking to anyone about them.

The plan was to work hard for 5 or 6 years and use my high income to save a healthy deposit'.
