I meant to post this yesterday evening but events overtook me and I didn’t manage to do it! Better late than never!
I eventually rolled into bed at about 8.30am this morning! No I hadn’t been out all night partying, I had just finished my last night shift and had done my good deed for the day by picking up Helen from the BRI after her night shift!
As I have a whole 32 hours before I am back in the hot seat of my RRV (Rapid Response Vehicle), admittedly on overtime, I wanted to be back up again by 2pm because there were a couple of things I wanted to do!
I was hoping to chill out tonight with a very good friend in front of his projector with a couple of beers in hand watching a good horror film! But, oh no, Tony had other ideas! Monday night is boxing night and there was no way in the world he was going to let me off! I tried everything to appeal to his better nature, but he was having none of it! We did manage to reach a compromise, the beers will follow the boxing! I guess that’s what friends are for!
I am writing this post in a local coffee bar after meeting my mum and dad for a drink, as I was working yesterday, Fathers Day, and my mums birthday!
As you can probably imagine I am absolutely knackered but there is a positive side! Not so long ago I would have been unable to work even one overtime shift let alone two consecutive ones after only 32 hours off after a run of 5 regular shifts! I guess you can say I’m quite proud of myself really!! Another blog soon provided I can use my arms after tonight’s boxing!
