Just gimme the drugs...

Further to my last post,
I am back home now and on good olde pain medicine ... and it is yummy!
I am surprised however about the lack of seeing any of the management or senior officers popping in to check that I really am Ill! I am sure that my crime list is getting longer an no doubt the crime management unit have sent me loads of emails and memos to do some such pointless thing...

I must say I am a bit miffed by the absence of anyone popping in to check that I was in hospital and not on a jolly in some far-flung sunny place...

I suppose they know how much they pay me...

Oh Bugger

Sorry for the lack of post’s, I have undoubtedly been sidelined with a hospital stay, All is well, and I am doing fine –
A minor road traffic collision necessitated me having a few days while they do x-rays and scans an all other malarkey.
However I now have limited internet (yay!) in the form of an hp Ipaq to while away the hours. (Thanks darling!)

Once I figure out how to use it to post that is.

Two years and a little bit more and May is looming on the horizon, its the time the new copper takes a look at where he or she is , and takes stock of where he or she wants to be this time next year.

Open posts and vacancies are advertised internally on what is called police notices, here lists of new police officers, transferee , resignations and other useful and interesting tit bits are recorded and published for all to pick over.

Of course on spotting something you quite fancy comes the inevitable application form and the associated paperwork !

They say a change is as good as a move, and thinking about that it always seems that the station is in a constant state of flux with new officers joining and those transferring to other boroughs and forces, even internal changes with department moves and promotions - it is easy to loose touch with friends.

With that in mind I have started a ball rolling about the old Hendon class I was with and looking to have some sort of re union or at least some form of pub bash... Yes yes , So what would make a good bash, I ask you ?
