Work's been..busy. As you can probably imagine.
Otherwise, life is good! We've dialled our running schedule right back, in preparation for the weekend...Yes, we'll be doing the half marathon this weekend. Terrifyingly.
We are going to be cheered on (well, if they can drag themselves away from ice cream and the excitement of the parks) by Sherlock, Mrs Hudson, Jo, Lisa and Tadgh. Unless it's horribly rainy etc, in which case they might all amuse themselves doing far more fun things, and we shall wearily trudge home at the end with the hope of hot drinks and lots of food...
So here's our route.
Distressingly, I qualify as a 'senior man'. Hrmm.
Anyway, here's the pictures we took the other day - we went for a little wander through town, and the poppies are really filling out now. Very powerful.
In other news - one of my cases is going well (blood left at the scene by the offender. Lovely.) and others are going badly (domestic violence, the murkiest case ever, allegations and counter allegations, changing stories, angry relatives trying to get involved)... honestly, I hate cases like these, because it's so hard to know what's truth and what isn't.
Sorry we've been a bit quiet. To be honest, it's hard to know what to say! Life is good :) John's working more, Sherlock's becoming more self-sufficient, and Mycroft definitely deserves his privacy, so, well, it just gets a bit difficult. But we're still here. And you're still there, and it's nice to know. I enjoy our little chats in comments.
Oh - it will no doubt make some of you very happy to know that the other day the Borough Commander was knocking around the building. Could he come in and find me when I was diligently doing work in my office? No. He arrived as I shot out of my office, singing and dancing to The Locomotion, to give a file back to one of my officers. Professional. Yes.
