Need to remember the prison is ours we just let them stay there. So none of this it's there house or own space. You can't go to a hotel and spark up?

I vaguely remember some movie where tons of missing people were returned to the planet including Glen Miller although he was slightly changed and now played reggae

In some YOI they do get gifts,socks or little stocking filler type things. Staff will usually get a longer dinner there will be a little fewer staff on over the whole day because bang up is usually earlier. You will tend to find its harder to bang up the more difficult cons near the end of your day over the festive period.

We're also doing something different again this year for food. Last year I did a tapas which was amazing. This year with be a 3 bird game pie (pheasant, partridge and duck - all shot locally and prepared by yours truly), roast potatoes and parsnips, carrots and peas with a home made stuffing.

My status changed late on Friday so hoping I'll be receiving my call easily in the start of the week. Just wondering how agreeing a start date works. Do they list all the upcoming dates for all venues and it's up to you to decide? Or do they just list the ones closer to the prison your applying for?
Can't wait to have my starting date it's all starting to slot into place :slbg:

When I got the call they looked for the closest venue and soonest starting date when you can commit without having any time off at all.
