Gods only knows why ~ but including you I know about 4 people who have applied to join Gloucestershire Police.

Makes a change though ~ when I was in my teens I knew loads of people who had been in the cells and when I was in my 20's I worked at HQ.

Odd how things come round.

A simple soul, really! Far too nice to be a cop. Sorry!

Girl*Next*Door said...

It does yeah, thanks Em xx

I tell you what Pawpads, after reading parts of your blog I reckon on some occasions we must have been very close to the same area, if not in it! It's quite scary by how little things are separated.

Dickiebo, I am quite a simple soul (Hopefully not intelligence wise but I have my doubts! Lol)
Oh don't let my niceness fool you, I can be tough when I need to be! Lol
