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.

Consider yourself lucky the process has been speeded up.

You used to wait 6-8 months without a word fromm ss

Well your highly unlikely to hear anything for at least a month I'd say. 3 weeks is nothing really, but you could call shared services to enquire on what's been done and what still needs doing.

I've been in vetting for 2 weeks. All references sent out and 2 out of 3 returned. Awaiting PCN which has been requested. All moving along nicely according to SS when I spoke to them earlier.
