2 weeks of great experience

I can't believe I haven't been posting for a week! Not until Colin said to me on Friday evening: You haven't post anything on your blog, dear?

As I mentioned in my last post that I was called for my jury service for two weeks. I wasn't that willing at first. My first jury service was supposed to be the week that I went to Belgium to see Sipzie, I immediately sent them a reply to say I have already booked a holiday but I've got another letter within a week to send me a new date which I CANNOT defer.

Anyway, I have no choice but to go and perform my jury service. Other than my worries about getting Sing fit for Crufts, I actually enjoyed my juery service very much. It was a lot of waiting, sitting around to be called and you never know when are you going to be called ...

My first day was miserable. Got there early, have my introduction, then the waiting game begin ... I've waited all day first day, my name has not been called at all; then into 2nd day, I finished reading my James Patterson's book from the first day and still my name hasn't been called once! After lunch, I was beginning to doze off ...

Someone call my name! WooHoo! I've got a case, at last! I was so excited!! We were at a different court, so we have to leave the building and went to the satellite court.

My first case was not very excited but it was good to learn some new things, new experienced and meet new friends, non doggie friends! We finished early everyday, I was home before 4pm everyday and we only need to be at the Court by 10:30am! We reached the verdict around lunch, so we got released until the following Monday. Heaven!

Into second week, I've got more excited case, whole new experienced and met more new people from different backgrounds. We can't reach the verdict so the case has to be re-trial but I've got released for good on Thursday before lunch!

All done!!

Now, back to my normal routine!!
