After some more reading I think my problem stems from me not annealing the copper head gasket before fitting so it’s to hard to seal properly and is now leaking. Does this sound like a reasonable cause to water in my oil? Any advice would be appreciated.

Also from what I have read it is possible to reuse the copper head gasket as long as it is annealed by heating it to cherry red then quenching it in cold water. This will make the gasket soft. Does this sound correct?
