The Past Three Days

I can’t even begin to describe the past three days.

I don’t need to tell you what happened – I know you all can read.  We’ve had reporters from every paper you’ve ever heard of on our tails since the trial.  Can’t go outside without stepping on one.  They all want a statement from Sherlock.

It was worst right after the verdict.  Not because of the reporters, but because I had to take the Tube back and when I got there, he was pulling away from the curb.  Moriarty.  Just like that, casual as anything.  Blew me a kiss as he drove by, I thought for sure I’d go upstairs and find Sherlock lying dead on the floor.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m happy you’re here.  Sherlock’s been in a mood, but he’s Sherlock.  The reason this is all a bit strange to me is because I think this is one of the least interesting cases we’ve had in a while – it only concerns a stolen painting, and the last one I wrote up involved giant glowing hellhounds.    Either way, welcome everyone.  My hit counter is telling me there have certainly been a lot of you…

Before I forget…

The only really exciting thing that’s happened in the past couple of weeks is Sherlock’s started taking driving lessons.

I know.  I can’t believe it either.

He’s getting them from Victor though so at least he’s in good hands.  They went out this afternoon and came back in one piece, which is reassuring.

Just thought I’d let you all know so you can steer clear of the streets.
