Oh dear

Oh bugger.

Any one got some tips for air travel ? I had planned on flying with Ryan air and skipping out on the extra charge for luggage by using hand luggage however it appears some naughty people have scuppered that idea. I would love to hear from anyone who was affected by the recent actions and restrictions now in place, drop me a line.
On more interesting news the Proceeds of crime act has lowered the bar for cash seizures , This has dropped from Five thousand to a meager One thousand pounds (Or believed to be that amount) that can be seized under POCA if it is believed to be ill gotten gains. Interesting times ahead I think here. Just dont forget to bring the court fee when you make your application, filling in an expence form later is a right pain in the backside.

Once again in this post I am drawing attention to the fantastic BIKESAFE program.
If your a fellow 2 wheel head, you should - nay must get yourself on this program at some point
It will save lifes.

Blessed sleep

I envy my response/team colleagues, Shift patterns mean they get sleep at some point.
Late hours and long working periods , weekend on - cover & night duty all on top of prisoner that are proper long cases have meant that I am cream crackered.

This time of the year its not helped with people on holidays and annual leave meaning that the work of 4 is been done by two - just.

Yea sure there are all the regs about workhours etc , but I can tell you Mrs TBL is not best pleased. I am sure new shoes will be the order of the day with my pay packet no doubt about that.

There has so much been going on in the media that I leave it to those better able to argue points to address all the goings on, but I do despair with the level of violence of the assaults I have been dealing with lately.

I think I am just dog tired.

There is light at the end of the tunnel and its not that of an on coming train.
Holidays loom for myself towards the end of the month, Mrs TBL and I will be getting out of this country to some where not quite so hot !

Oh I am rambling now.
Good night, sleep well.
