Firstly an apology.
It's been ages since I last blogged. But I have an excuse (or two) to use in my defence.
To be honest, we've been really quiet. Apart from a string of fires on Corton Cliffs we haven't really had any working jobs worth mentioning. So, in the greater scheme of things, that's good.
But, on the other hand, we keep our solitary pump on the run for all but the odd hour here and there in any seven day period. So, for the vast majority of the time our pump is available for shouts, standby's or anything else for that matter but not a squeak.
It's been that quiet that I can't remember the last time I changed the battery in my alerter!
Conversely, our esteemed colleagues over the river at Lowestoft South can get 7 shouts a day... Strange but true.
Now I would like to spout forth on all of this but I fear I can't. One feels that Big Bruv may well be watching... Things I'd like to talk about range from standby's toÂ crewing levels and use of available resources to recruitmentÂ and a few other things too. But I can't, so I won't.
Ah, just remembered... Another reason for not blogging is I've recently started a new business. My business partner, Wendy Takman, and I have taken on a franchised business called thebestof Lowestoft. We showcase the best businesses in Lowestoft and are now seeing a great deal of interest from local business owners.
Take a look at our website - you'll even see us in glorious Technicolor in our homepage video...
