Merry Christmas to one and all

Lets hope all our loved ones keep safe over the holiday period it is hard for them but it is also hard for us on the outside.

This has not been a good year for a lot of people I know for certain it has not been a good one for me with more health problems being added to my list of problems,

My son has been moved to Garth in Preston been there about 10 months now hopefully he will be moving closer soon fingers crossed. I have only been able to see him once since he moved to Garth that knocked me for 6 and it was 4 days before I started to feel better, plus my daughter had her back really bad for 2 days after the visit.

We have a new solicitor the whole team seems to be good.

I am still living in hope that someone will be able to take over the running of this blog on a regular  basis. If anyone is genuinely interested please let me know.

Once again Merry Christmas and A Happy & Prosperous New Year To You All.

Two prison officers were taken to hospital with serious injuries after young inmates rioted at a Staffordshire jail.
Around 20 prisoners armed with chairs and table legs attacked staff and five inmates barricaded themselves into a cell as specialist warders fought to restore order.
Details of the riot at Swinfen Hall prison near Lichfield, Staffordshire, on Thursday have only just emerged.
The jail houses 600 long-term young men serving sentences from four years to life.
It has a recent history of disturbances, including a riot in August when four prisoners were injured and a fire broke out.
The jail was locked down while fire, ambulance and specialist warders dealt with the trouble.
A report last year by the prison's independent monitoring board concluded that budget cuts and staff shortages were making it difficult to guarantee the safety of inmates.
In the latest disturbance one prison officer suffered a suspected broken jaw, while another had head and face injuries.
Others suffered cuts and bruises.
