Well, we now have 7 sleeps to go and tonight marks my penultimate night shift before I hand in my Police id card (for safe keeping???) before I start my epic 4 1/2 months off work to embark on our trip of a lifetime. At the moment Alex and I keep discussing our excitement factor and at the moment I guess I have to admit it’s at about 3/10. I think the moment we start packing it will zoom up and the moment I leave home on our train journey to Heathrow airport it is gonna go sky high. I’m certainly not bothered by the thought of a 26 1/2 hour journey (35 1/2 hrs door to door). Bring it on. That’s why god invented inflight entertainment, iPads, booze and sleeping pills!
To everybody that have given us tips and advice. Please accept our gratitude.
To all my colleagues at the nick I will miss you all.
