Did I Fall Asleep?

Apologies, but 13+ hour workdays don’t leave much time for blogging (or rational thought).  Just about managing to strain up under the bear*, as my late, lamented chum John used to say.

Promise to be back soon (bet you can’t wait).

YOUR POLICE FORCE IN ACTION

It’s been reported that the Met Police are not going to bother trying to find the persons responsible for issuing flyers threatening “snitches” who might be thinking about passing on information following a recent shooting in Peckham.  Presumably they might have to get out into the fresh air rather than sit in the canteen.  (Not that I’d want to wander around Peckham if I didn’t need to; driving around in a MetPol marked van was enough for me.)

Of course, if the fly-posters had lost their cat then they would really have been in bother.

DO YOU SEE WHAT HAPPENS, LARRY* . .

. . . when the long Christmas/New Year break disturbs your concentration?  Not exactly a restful period for your grovelling author, what with spending most of Boxing Day trying not to catch anything infectious in the A & E waiting area (standing room only, bring all your friends and family for a grand day out).  Good job I could adjourn to the hospital restaurant and sit alone with a cuppa and a portion of turkey tikka masala.

Then there’s the family crisis that threatened all sorts of mayhem for later in the year (luckily sorted out after a couple of days).

That’s my excuse anyway.  Believe it or don’t!
