What an utterly hard and demanding 36-hour shift that was... hours of exhausting public work, combined with all-night patrols and security checks on an important London building, followed by extensive stand-down procedures. All in all, it was knackering but awesomely rewarding.

Now I have to get back to my no-internet temporary accomodation, and complete my next piece of University coursework, in order to submit it tomorrow!

My next 36-hour stint starts on Monday, meaning that I will *have* to spend Sat evening/night and Sun evening preparing my kit and equipment. I probably wont be out much this weekend except to nip around Camden to buy some CDs.

Apologies for those who I planned to see out on Fri/Sat nights; I can't make it! But, I will have more days-off to come.

What's to gain from putting you on a 36-hour shift? Surely no human can maintain effective concentration for that long? Do you get time to sleep, or do you just take a lot of stimulants?

Slept for some hours, from (something like) 11pm to 2am. Then covered the front desk until 5am, when I woke up another guy to cover, and organized a morning patrol. It was a beautiful patrol, next time, I'll get photos. Hopefully, that is, if I am on the same building. It was a mini-castle, with castle walls... I was patrolling inside, and outside you could see high-rise London and the Ghurkin. Odd contrast of civilian, ancient and modern!
