>Its The End of The World As We Know it

>Well, that title may be a bit of an overstatement, but the big boss left his post today as HM Chief Inspector. He was the person who set up the Inspectorate and when it becsame independent of the CPS 10 years ago, he was the first Chief Inspector and it has been his baby since then. With my line manager (one of 2 Deputy Chief Inspectors), having retired last week, it really is the end of an era at HMCPSI. at work.

We had a farewell drink tonight for the Chief Inspector. It is always nice to have a few minutes away from work to socialise with colleagues. It was low key as requested by the leaver.

The new Chief Inspector will not be at the office until 12th April, so wse will have to wait to see how things change. A potentially exciting time ahead, but almost certainly one that will involve lots of change. Will it be for good or bad – only time will tell.

Well, I was in Crawley last night, so only a one way bike ride today. The bloody weather-British Summer time? Somebody better tell the weather machine about that- its freezing, windy & wet.

From the start of next week, I am going to extend my commuting – weather permitting to get some more miles in towards the trip to the US. Its only just over 4 weeks til I go. EEEEKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK – Scary isn’t it

I'm a 50 something football fan and occasional cyclist. I've been a football fanatic most of my life and have completed the 92 football league & premier league grounds previously. I have 1 left to rejoin the 92 club. Added to this numerous non league grounds, a number abroad and you start to get the picture. I took up cycling in around 2000. Although my father was a former World Vets Champion, I got into cycling accompanying my son to ride in London. This was followed by my commuting to work each day into Central London. Then doing some Sunday rides, then some audax events (www.audax.uk.net) and then a week's cycling holiday in France with a friend. From there, I got more and more into cycling and in 2009 completed LEJoG and in 2010 rode in the USA with the Police Unity Tour. I completed blogs for those events at www.aminearlythere.blogspot.com and www.bothesidesofthepond.blogspot.com Feel free to read them and learn more about me. I now am one of the organising committee for the UK Police Unity Tour (www.ukpoliceunitytour.org ) I live alone which suits me as it gives me time at weekends to pursue my interests of cycling and football. (Well what did you expect me to say? That I'm sad at being single?) I'm currently looking for my next challenge. Any suggestions gratefully received.
