Backstreet's Back

Hello - after a house move and an argument with my broadband provider, I'm back.

Thanks for the messages and emails, sorry I haven't posted recently. For those that enjoyed the peace and quiet, sorry I'm back!

Watch this space..

One of the many people that have emailed me in my absence is a Doctor, who many of you may have already heard of - he is Dr Nick Edwards. He's following the route of many successful copper bloggers (and other public sector workers) and has published a book. Check it out, not least because he is brave/stupid enough to use his real name! Clicky Link

A quote from the press release: "Ever-conscious of meaningless targets, the author would like it to be known that 98% of the stories contained in this book were written in under 4 hours."

I was wondering where you'd got to, hadn't reached the level of actually leaving a comment or anything yet, though I was contemplating perusing BBC News see if anything had happened to any southern coppers lol I just figured you'd gone on holiday or something. Welcome back, hope you're enjoying the new house/flat/whatever.

No, why leave a comment. You don't want to go that far! ;-)

I went on holiday as well, so you were correct in that. Perhaps a career in CID beckons?

Well, you know I didn't want to sound like some freaky internet stalker, which is what my flatmate called me when I said "oh I wonder what Area's up too, I'm a bit worried, he is in a risky job"

And the idea of me as a copper is hilarious on so many levels, for starters I'm far too bolshy, and I'm easily distracted by shiny things/men in uniform, I mean it would give everyone a good laugh I suppose, but meh too much effort just for other people's amusement methinks.

Well after the comment you left about lack of broadband I just figured it was that & that you'd be back eventually. I'm afraid I had the same thought process as pinkness.... & they say men are bad! Lol
