Its not very often I can't sleep, it's more a not wanting to sleep despite the tiredness gnawing at the back of my eyeballs.
Friday was an interesting day, chased and caught shoplifters across Scarborough, radios, police the whole shizzle. Took four police to get one of them, bound hand and foot, into the van. Me and Rob the security guy on duty that night cornered them at the top of a hill leading out of the vally, my manager who was following at a safe distance flagged down a passing police car before the unit assigned to us could arrive. Good thing too tbh. Ended up with two cars and a van, 6 constables, me and Rob. I learnt running up hill hurts like a motherfucker. We caught three of the four, one got away, which pissed Rob off a tad, got CCTV of all four tho.
Last post? Oh not alot. Got told I was scary, I agreed. Maybe more on that later :-)
The sun's coming up, I'm at work tomorrow and up at 9. I figure I'm already screwed for that plan. Supposed to be going out tomorrow night also, Kat is no longer sick, and has been on nights all week so she insists she will manage to see the night out, I'm frankly sceptical, no stamina on some people ;-) I'm kinda leaving myself open for a revenge attack, but you can't win them all.
What else? Hmm... Second stage interview for the graduate training scheme on the 4th, I'd like to get through, I really would, the training pay is good, and the guarenteed position at the end of it would set me up for life, with prospects for a 50k a year job.
End of the day tho, if it pays my bills, leaves time and money for me to enjoy myself, I don't really need anything more. Thought about it alot, decided I'd like a job without homework. Leave work at work. After 15 years of it, I've decided I don't want any more :-)
This could be a really interesting summer, I can honestly say I am looking forward to it, Elaine wants to come stay, Izaak is coming over for some time in August, Paul wants to come up also when Elaine and Izaak are over, Russ Phil could simply hijack on the way. We could possibly have like 10 of us all in the same pub getting pissed at the same time, which is one of the funniest thoughts of the year. Probably won't happen due to people's time constraints, but small groups is a certainty. Ky has practcally ordered my brother to kidnap me if I refuse to come down, although I'm not so fond of Daz so... We'll see.
I really have to go to bed. Four and a half hours sleep is probably sensible minimum of sleep. Don't really want to go tho. Sleep wastes so much time that I'll never get back.
Ah well, mammoth update there.
*stalls some more*
Bah, ok, bed.
You've been told ;-)
