About Me

I’m Sarah Didsbury, I was born in May 1984 – making me a Taurus, for those it matters to – I live at home with my mum and dad in the suburbs of one of the UK’s largest cities. I’m reluctant to say exactly where because we cops get a bit paranoid about too many people knowing too much about us.

My dad used to be a sergeant in the same force that I am in, he retired after thirty years five years ago; he both encouraged and discouraged me from being in the police at the same time.

My mum’s great, she works part-time for social services as a home carer but is doing less and less now so her and dad can spend more time together since he retired.

I guess I’m a bit too comfortable at home for my own good; it’s nice though to have a dad who understands what it feels like to work nights and a mum who is used to looking after someone who works all the unsocial hours that the police requires. They both worry though – mum more than dad – I think dad has a lot of faith in the police team who look after each other, he knows there are people watching my back just like his team watched his.

In my spare time I keep fit, running, gym, swimming and I’ve also just started going to free extra self defence classes at work which is fun. I also love taking our dog Toby for walks.

I have a small car but only learnt to drive a year ago; this has meant that my driving police cars at work has been hampered but I hope to get a driving course soon.

    Thanks for your lovely comments, I think it’s fascinating that we can read about the lives of people in such far off places around the world.

    Two new studies show why some people are more attractive for members of the opposite sex than others.

    The University of Florida, Florida State University found that physically attractive people almost instantly attract the attention of the interlocutor, sobesednitsy with them, literally, it is difficult to make eye. This conclusion was reached by a series of psychological experiments, which were determined by the people who believe in sending the first seconds after the acquaintance. Here, a curious feature: single, unmarried experimental preferred to look at the guys, beauty opposite sex, and family, people most often by representatives of their sex.

    The authors believe that this feature developed a behavior as a result of the evolution: a man trying to find a decent pair to acquire offspring. If this is resolved, he wondered potential rivals. Detailed information about this magazine will be published Journal of Personality and Social Psychology.

    In turn, a joint study of the Rockefeller University, Rockefeller University and Duke University, Duke University in North Carolina revealed that women are perceived differently by men smell. During experiments studied the perception of women one of the ingredients of male pheromone-androstenona smell, which is contained in urine or sweat.

    The results were startling: women are part of this repugnant odor, and the other part is very attractive, resembling the smell of vanilla, and the third group have not felt any smell. The authors argue that the reason is that the differences in the receptor responsible for the olfactory system, from different people are different.

    It has long been proven that mammals (including human) odor is one way of attracting the attention of representatives of the opposite sex. A detailed article about the journal Nature will publish.
