dont be too excited, if it was anything like mine, they will hardly look at you, and when you get your uniform once you start, it will be all wrong! But yes, it is exciting, it puts it all into reality. Before you know it you will be starting your training!

Well had my uniform fitting and it went really well.
The guys at northants stores were very helpfull.
everything was a good fit although the hat felt strange, maybe
as i'm not used to wearing hats.

Training is not far away now and i'm very much looking forward to getting started. :sljo:

Remember that first day that you walk out of the station/office in your uniform, it's a very nerve-wracking experience.

Uniform fitting today was excellent! Loved every minute of it! Didn't realise how much of it there was going to be! And they even had a stab vest in my size already available! :D :D

Had my ID photo done today as well, hmmmmmm a couple of attempts and I still looked slightly asleep and gormless in it :( but picked the best of the worse haha, only 17 sleeps to go!
