I really enjoyed this, I ususally find it hard to get into series about Glendower House, but not this one. I'm looking forward to more of this- Thanks.

Thanks, Fliss. I am glad everyone has agreed to the scheme.

I'm glad that Hilda and the others in Switzerland are as delighted with this idea as Miss Alton and Madge Russell clearly are - quite aside from the educational value of the exchange, it really will give the two branches of the school more of a sense of unity. Well done Len, too, both for not jumping in and writing to Hilda or her mother about the idea and for being so concerned to establish herself as a teacher on her own strengths, not because she is Madge's niece or Joey's daughter. She has already earned her aunt's respect, I hope that Joey will also give her credit.
Thank you, Fliss.

This is charming, so convincing that Len would need to move away from the Platz to find herself as Len, not Reg's relict. Love the idea of the exchange, it really would have been a good idea. Yes, of course the reminders of New Mistress, but not overtly. Len shows a firm but gentle hand with Jemima.

You killed Reg. Excellent.
I loved seeing Madge again and that Len can talk to her.
How bloodthirsty! Although I may have given him an extra hard shove off a convenient mountain ...
Hahahaha!! Poor old Reg. Loving this story by the way. More when available please !
Thanks for reading and commenting Beecharmer - I'm glad you're enjoying it! Thanks for the reassurance that drabbles have a life of their own, too, this one is running away with me - it was only supposed to be 2 or 3 chapters long ...

super duper story

I'm glad that Jemima now knows the whole story behind her adoption, and I'm sure that those quiet days at home, with just her family round her really helped her to understand that being adopted did not make her any less loved than the twins were. And their own brand of affection must have helped her too. I'm glad too, that she was able to take a part in the play, however small it may have been.
Thanks for reading and continuing to comment, Elder. Its lovely to have your feedback - glad you thought that Jemima would have been helped but this, I was anxious it wasn't all wrapped up too easily for her or it sounded like undermining the distress of her experience. The lashings of milk were in deference to Matey, though, rather than my own preferred cure!

Poor Len, feeling guilty for not having Reg constantly in mind, after 3 years. But that guilt is so common - as is poor Jemima's anguish after finding out about her 'parents'. A dreadful load for a young girl to carry....

It's unfortunate that Jemima's parents hadn't told her when she was much younger that she was adopted, though I'm sure they had their reasons for not doing so. And it's even more unfortunate that the girl has found out in this way - it was bound to be a shock and it's small wonder her behaviour has been affected. Thank goodness both Len and Miss Alton realise the need for quick action - I really hope one or both her parents are able to come to the school as soon as possible and will be able both to explain things to her and to reassure her that they really *do* love her.
