Like a pig in ..........


Well,

sorry for being more than absent for a good while. Some may say good riddance and they would probably be right. I have actually had a rather splendid couple of weeks. Following the nightmare application scenario bizarrely enough I actually passed the first stage. (No-one more surprised than me)! Thank you BG for your positive e-mails, not just you but SC ,BE ,VN and Mr HD , this is just to name a few. You really have been supportive and positive even when I haven't been. Thank you.

Anyway you all know or have guessed what I am looking to progress/regress to and who knows what will happen? The next 5 stages depend on me, not just random persons deciding.

The last 2 weeks I have not been on response I have been attached to a unit that does nothing but enforce vehicle crime. I have for the first time had live access to ANPR and dealt with nothing except Road Traffic Act offenders and vehicle crime matters. I haven't worked a night shift, I haven't generated any crime reports but what I have done is take 20 or so cars off the road from uninsured/unlicensed drivers. Yes, I have also dealt with more than a few motorists who have been on their mobile despite there being a big f-off marked up Vectra alongside/behind/at the junction whilst they were doing it. If they dropped the phone they got a warning if they carried on......well it says a lot about how much attention you can pay to the road and chat on your mobile doesn't it. It does cause a lack of concentration.

Other than that not really got a lot to tell you other than my stress levels and blood pressure are at the lowest point that I can remember them being for the last 9 years. Ahhhh, that is until I remembered that response calls again on Thursday, YIPPEE........no really........really,..... honest, sort of.........no it's all bollocks, here we go again!

Please let me pass. Had a taste of the other side and don't want to go back!

Keep thinking positive thoughts like a true Jedi, and the "dark side" will not be able to drag you back into the poo, old friend. ;0)

Fingers crossed and if the stress builds up dream back to the last 2 weeks. How much longer will your new direction take?

So far so jolly good CC.c. Then you can buzz me over this side of `them thar' hills between us, like WYP in their (MBB 109 or similar) did last week...at 4am...didn't wake me as I can sleep through incoming, but it woke Mrs Hogday...who woke me, to tell me.....oh never mind. Stay sharp and focussed.... and be yourself, dude!

Your apologies for absence are accepted C.C, and I certainly would NOT say good riddance! I would say, where the hell has he buggered off to?.....and how dare he make his escape, without moi....
