A while ago now I did a series of posts on 'the fic writer's guide to Britain'. I always intended to write one on policing, and law and order more generally, and now seems as good a time as any to finally get around to it! I'll mostly use media examples, and supplement with how things work in the Met (Metropolitan Police Service, second only to the NYPD in terms of size) and my local force, Gwent Police / Heddlu Gwent, which has around 1,350 sworn members.
Mention is made of Scotland and Northern Ireland, but they have seperate systems so unless I say otherwise I'm referring exclusively to England and Wales.

It's almost Valentine's Day - and I'm completely unprepared! Not only have I not even bought a card for Anthony, it's also my mum's birthday on the 14th and I haven't sorted out anything for that yet either. I'm still catching up on comments from last week too, along with a bunch of other stuff. I need to spring clean my organisation skills!
Anyway, enjoy these cute retro cards as we gear up for the festival of lurve. :D
Finally, here's the most perfect for Marianna. She is obsessed with Batgirl and insists on taking her doll everywhere. Seriously, that doll has a better social life than I do!

This week we're talking about Groundhog Day! Supposedly the behaviour of a groundhog on February 2nd will predict the weather over the coming weeks. If it's cloudy when a groundhog emerges from its burrow, spring will come early. If it's sunny, the groundhog will hightail it back into its burrow - naturally terrified of its own shadow - and winter will reign supreme for another six weeks.
To my shame, it's only relatively recently that I realised groundhogs actually exist and are not just a feature in a film starring Bill Murray! Still, it is a very good film.
Did you do anything for Groundhog Day? And have you ever thought something only existed in a movie? :)
