I'm more tired tonight than I was yesterday. Not that it matters, as tomorrow I'm on a rest day, and intend to take full advantage of that. Not sure Danger's actually told me when his bike lesson is - hopefully not too early. Although we still have to walk the boy wonder to school...
As mentioned in comments yesterday, my team is not a happy one right now. Well, most of them are okay, but one of my DCs is having a very difficult time. He's just not cut out for the MIT. I've helped him put in a transfer request, told him I'll give him a good write up. He's a very good copper, very conscientious, caring, thorough. But whereas in his CID he saw the early stages of a few murders, that's quite different to working them day in, day out. And I'm really glad he came and talked to me about it. There are loads of other departments he'd be great in. Not everyone's cut out to spend all day long thinking about the worst of humanity. I don't know how the officers on the team dealing with paedophilia or child pornography cope - I couldn't. But somehow, a body I don't really mind. Suppose it's just a bit...numbing, over time. You learn which things to focus on, how to keep going. And I'll admit that black humour comes into it, too. It sort of has to. Sometimes you need to laugh, or you'd cry.
Anyway, tomorrow's another day. John's lesson in the morning. My appointment at 1pm, re-arranging the Degu cage after we fetch Sherlock.
Speaking of, let's end on a high note. Have a pile of Goos. Mercury is making Argon look a little chubby here - although the amount of food they snaffle, it's not that surprising! But I do love them when they pile up and have a cuddle.
