All shook up

This morning i didn't feel too good...Well i could barely open my eyes they were so sore with a headache that i managed to wake the boys but didn't make it to college myself...At midday my buzzer went (how i dunno as postie broke it) and it was the police wanting access to the building...Actually they were after me or more to the point after Mikey...Which by look on my face they could tell i was shocked/worried as they said nothing to worry about...One of his classmates from college had been missing all weekend so they were checking with everyone...I said Mikey was at college but he had the afternoon off and tues morning off...Also that i had no idea of any of the kids in his class names except for one of the girls...That Mikey didn't go out with any of his classmates outwith college times...They left and said the kid has gone awol before and turned up so not to worry...Well when Mikey came home he said this kid was at college this morning!!!...Hmmm would have thought either the parents or the police should have checked there first thing...Once Mikey was home i felt well enough, just. to drive to post office to post sympathy cards...So driving along minding my own business, not speeding (for once lol) into sainsburys carpark and finding a space beside post office easily when the car behind stops across back of mine...Next i know there's this policewoman at my window so i opened it...She wanted to know if the car was mine and did i have my licence on me...She looked at the front of the car, checked my road tax and parking permit for outside here all the time saying nothing...Not even her name when i asked for it...She hands me back my licence and said i was ok and naffed off back into the unmarked car which was blocking me in and they drove off...Me left sat there in shock with no explanation as to why i had been basically stopped...With i might add loads of people stood staring at me...I still feel quite shook up about all this police goings on today...I've never been checked out when driving a car before by the police...I have had police at the door once before nearly 12 years ago about a missing person associated with Mikey...Sadly that lad was found murdered a few days later :o( I got impression this lad from college maybe goes off out with friends and stays with them overnight and doesn't think to contact parents to let them know...When they have special needs that can be a major worry depending on what their special needs/disability is...I phoned the police station when i got home and apparently they can just stop you without explanation and give no reason when asked...BUT if you ask their name or better their badge number then they must give you it...I didn't ask for badge number...I just hopo they were genuine and not trying to nick my identity lol...They're welcome to it as there ai n't much of one to nick ROFL

Anyways Mikey had his information session and it went well he said...He didn't need to show any qualifications for this introductory course...All you need is to be interested and keen...He has said that he has a place on it :o) Wonder how i can check without Mikey knowing lol...Oh he is going out now with friends from college on a sunday afternoon...Well yesterday was the second time and they are old friends from school...Him and one other lad and the others are girls...He bought himself a hat yesterday.

Hi Caff, How awful to have been stopped by the police without them giving you a reason, it wouldn`t have hurt them to tell you whatever the present policy is. I only have to see a policeman and I feel guilty even though I`ve not done anything! I`m glad Mikey`s classmate turned up safely, it must have been quite worrying to hear of his disappearence. I hope you feel better now. Take care.

Love Sandra xxxx

Bit disconcerting to have the police pounce on you like that. Get well soon.

I changed the name of my blog. I took my name out of the title. I didn't want anyone to be able to find me so easily by just typing in my name.

New name is: A middle aged mom's upside down world.

New address is:

If you're a follower you should get updates as you're all still listed, but to be on the safe side, you could delete and re-add yourself if you just have me in your favorites and follow that way, you'll need to add my new address and delete the old.

How awful Caff, that's really not on that they can demand things like that with no reason, really is a big brother state we live in.
