Sharing my first night life journey working as Security, within Construction on 1 of the biggest National Rail Projects... HS2!




FRI 12th MARCH 2021

It’s that time again... my 4 nights come around too quick mate, honestly!!!

I can’t believe it’s been nearly 2yrs since I’ve now been doing #security and the nights have been fine but boi has it changed my body 🙊 my size 10 is still surprising as it’s been years (late teens/20s) that I was that size.

I miss my curvy 12 😩 but what can I do my on and off #workouts from 2018 onwards has also done its fair share along with the fabulous ‘body changer’ aka #bodymessiah 🔥🔥🔥 now this is also something that has been detoxing and clearing out my body since I started taking it nearly 3YRS ago.👏👏👏

What to do... over 20yrs of always working days and now doing nights, but it would be good to get back to the norm of working in the day and chilling at night 😫 what to do!! #help 🤣

WED 20th JAN ‘2021:

I can’t believe it! For seven full wks, I have been patrolling and managing the opening and closing of the Barrier, and now the constant pulling and closing of the barrier has taken its toll on my little wrists.

So being as there are x2 day Security on this project... one who sits in the cabin on the main site and me.

Anyway, I thought I’d call him to ask if he would mind rotating every week. You know, Team Work, mix it up... “Sharing is Caring.”

I have to say that I was surprised by his response as I generally believed he was going to be more than okay with the weekly change... but on the other hand, he would rather sit on his arse for 12hrs (minus his breaks) instead of actually doing any physical work.

The man said

“No, I don’t want to cover that section because it’s too hard”

😵like really, WTF! So it’s alright for a female to do it but him being a man... is telling me that covering the barrier and controlling who comes and goes is TOO HARD, is a Joke!!! 🤣🤣🤣🤣

Really what he is saying... all the time he is sitting round the corner doing NOTHING he is laughing at me doing all the work. OK!

Anyway I’ve emailed my area manager to implement this swoop, wither it be with the same (just sit and do nothing) guy or someone else otherwise I’ll have to stop working the 5days and cover wkends (as and when) needed.

Or remain but I will be leaving the barrier open 🤷‍♀️

So awaiting to hear back.

SAT 5th OCT ‘2019

It’s 22:54pm and the ‘Lady of Variety’ 👉ME👈 is sat in the cabin on-site.  

Loving the quiet and calmness that the night time shift has, hearing the trains past even had a (cho cho) train 🚂 pass, not often u see one of them.

While people are out and about, in doors or in bed... im at work and if most def feels good to have the change of ‘days to myself’ and evenings/nights working.

Don’t know how long I’ll do ‘nights’ for but right now it’s most def all good... 🙌

About to go on patrol now... and wishing everyone an enjoyable and safe night.
