The upside of doing nights is that for the bulk of the day I get Danger to myself. Even if he does just nag me to sleep all the time. Who would want to sleep when the other option is to spend the time with him? So I grabbed an hour or so this morning, and I daresay I'll get a bit more this afternoon. Hopefully on the sofa, sprawled over him. Or him sprawled over me. Either way, I'm happy.
Normally I quite like the quiet nightshift gives in the office. I can get a lot done, catch up and not get too distracted. The downside of that is sometimes you have far too mmuch time to think and get caught up in your own head.
Last night was a rare exception, because someone was murdered when I was already scheduled on, which meant no one had to be dragged from their slumbers. Gang fight, too. So although it was horrifically messy at the scene, there's a fair chance of catching them. Hopefully when I get in tonight we'll be close to making an arrest.
Date-night, as you've already seen on Danger's blog, went very well. And yes, I am an old romantic. But it made him smile, which was the entire point, so all was well.
Some of you have also seen in comments that finally the courts have sent out the legal docs to Bryan (took a while, as you have to include the original civil partnership certificate, and I didn't have one. Not the sort of thing you grab when you're hell bent on getting out of a place). So now it's a waiting game to see what he does. Ideally, he'll agree, we'll come to an arrangement about settling and it'll be signed off. I'm not usually a pessimist...but I'm worried it won't be that easy. We can only hope.
Anyway, back to the beginning of the post, what with him and something at work which is weighing rather heavily on my mind, I'm glad last night's shift was busy, because it distracted me from my thoughts.
