I know, I know! It's been absolutely ages since I last wrote a blog post. In fact it's a full 18 months - I could have sworn it was just a few months.
The last blog I wrote was about the funeral of Al Soards, a much-loved and much-missed firefighter colleague.
Running my own businesses, a shortage of bloggable shouts and life in general has meant that posts here have taken a back seat.
Well, with a few shouts recently, I thought it was high-time to resume my firefighters blog...
