Busy day today. Walked into all the chaos of the Christmas stress building, people getting into all sorts of trouble with relationships and money and mopping up the inevitable Friday and Saturday nights anyway.
There's been a huge push recently on domestic violence crimes - Op Athena. So everyone's busy with that. Nearly 300 arrests since it began last week. Some people who come in for that are already wanted for other crimes, or we then find out we ought to want them...
So today, after meeting John, John's hat and Sherlock for a quick break, involved me going over to the labs and seeing some evidence they've collected.
Those are lipstick stains on cloth. They were testing them because of claims by various parties involved in a serious assault case. All I can say is some people lead extraordinarily complicated lives.
There are always odd things there in test tubes and marinating in liquids...
So the day went fast, and I rode in in the dark on icy roads and came home on dark icy roads. London went mad in the middle...Christmas shopping in full swing.
My migraine, for now, has gone....I really hope it stays gone.
