Just A Quicky

Shortest shift ever! It was my first day back so I only did half a shift to ease me back in, so I only had to do 7 hours from 4 until 11. I'm shattered now though so bedtime soon.

The blog as had an overhaul. I considered changing the name too but I figured after being away so long people would definately have no clue who I am so for the time being it is staying.

Work last night was good, but it was definately odd being back. They had me at a desk, which I expected, but after 3 months of trekking to all these far off exotic places it was definately a bit of a comedown. It was great being back to what I love though and I am out on patrol tomorrow so it will be great to get back in there properly.

That was all pretty boring, I know, but I just thought I best give a little update. It is time for me to hit the shower and then bed, but I will leave you with one of my favourite pictures from Agra. It's the Taj Mahal. I know, I know! Huge cliché. One click of Google could have got anyone a picture of it, but just to be there and see it's size is truly breathtaking. Anyway, my photography skills leave a lot to be desired and its a bit wonky, but its a nice one. We took about 6 altogether, some better than this, but the others had hundreds of people in them.

Anyway, It's bed time for me. Bye for now!

Forgive Me Readers, For I Have Sinned

It has been 8 months sinse my last blog update.

I sort of feel like I need a reintroduction. It has been so long sinse I last blogged that people have probably either forgotten who I am and what this blog is about or have plain just abandoned following it alltogether. This will pretty much be a small post to dip my toes back in the water and then more will come again if anyone still reads.

For those of you who are new to the blog or have forgotten me (I shall try not to cry) it all started out detailing my single life in the city and then sort of documented my meeting and falling in love with Jay, eventually moving in together and whatnot. For those who have stuck around, Jay and I are still together and very happy. It's been over 18 months now and it's all great. I am still in the force too and hoping for a promotion to Sgt sometime soon.

The world trip we had planned got cancelled because the agency went bust, but luckily we were able to get all of our money back and we rebooked. We were due to be leaving in about 2 weeks, but we took the opportunity of the cancellation to rebook for an earlier date and so we went in March and got back about a week ago. I shall talk loads about it in later posts and bore you all with hundreds of pictures. We ended up cutting Europe out completely and will do that at a later date and so we only ended up going to Agra, Singapore, Bangkok, Tokyo, Phuket, Sydney, Melbourne, Aukland, Fiji, Chile, Los Angeles and New York. I say 'only' like we were losing out, but I just mean that it was cut down considerably from the amount of places originally planned. We were lucky to catch some amazing weather though. It was absolutely amazing and we met some fantastic people along the way too which is a bonus. I also managed to get through the whole thing with only one minor injury too, which is sort of a miracle. If you have read my blog in the past you will know how injury prone I am.

Today I am back to work. It is going to be sooooo weird. Its currently just past 2am and I start at 4. I've been keeping the lads at the station updated though so it's not like I was totally isolated from everyone I work with for the whole time. It felt awesome to put my uniform on again tonight though. I can't wait to get back on the job.

Jay as fast asleep in bed at the moment. I had some extra time before my shift and it dawned on me that I havent updated this thing for a while. Anyway, I will leave you with a picture of my back in Fiji. I'm not trying to be mysterious or anything, it was just the first photo in the folder on my computer and I hate having a blog post with no picture.

Until next time guys :)

(and I promise it will be this week, not in 8 months. I'll also sort the white void at the top of the page out)
