Nice to see the arrival of the triplets. I did wonder if Joey might decide to get a little house near the school and have Daisy and Robin to live with her while she pursued her career as an author, but if she's still going on tour she won't be able to.

Thank you.



Author's Response: No, but there might well be another solution... Thanks for reviewing. Nice to be able to 'say hello'.

I'm glad she's going back for a visit. I hope it all works out OK. Interesting to see Jem's view that she'll "come home" one day.

Thanks.



Author's Response: I think it's a typical father figure thing, he wants to feel she will be near him protecting ! :-)

Uh-oh! Looks as if Phil might meet Joey rather sooner than planned. Loved his doctor's instincts coming to the fore.



Author's Response: Thank you, and yes it looks likely ! Just have to work out how and where !

I wonder if Joey could help by explaining to Len and Margot just what it's like to be so often struggling for breath? Having been in that situation herself she might be able to get them to understand better. 

Poor Rosalie, all on edge about Phil. Looking forward to seeing their meeting, I think!



Author's Response: Thank you. Me too, if the damn pair would just tell me how they'll react !

VERY good to see this back. I love the picture of Madge rushing around while the girls laugh at her! I hope Jack is meanwhile managing to explain coherently to Phil.



Author's Response: Thank you, that's a nice thing to say ! I'm not sure any of my characters do anything that coherently...

Jack and Rosalie are such good friends to Phil. I think Jack is absolutely right that Jo must be told - and very brave to go and do it himself.

Date: 27 Jan 2014 Title: Chapter 54: Chapter 54 - The School Moves

I laughed at Madge's star-struckness! I'm sure I'd be just the same. And I think Joey's idea for keeping a bit of the school at Carnback was inspired. 



Author's Response: Glad you liked it! It made me laugh when it occurred to me, but it seemed likely !

How is Monty going to explain this one away??!

But Eildih, Naomi's been in that room for a long time now and Monty hasn't got back with the soup and bread.....

I'm pretty sure the Head (such an enlightened man) won't expel Monty or disgrace him too much. Elizabeth is terrific - a brilliant way to make her point, both clever and humorous!

Great to see an update. What's going on between Mike and the others? It doesn't sound like ordinary trouble.

I hope Jo and Jack follow up on Cecil's apparent untidiness. There's obviously something nasty going on over at the School. It's good to see the family from a different perspective - and I love Len as Mother Superior!

Sorry - that was me being anonymous!

Reviewer: AnneM Signed
Date: 29 Feb 2012 Title: Chapter 12: Chapter 12 Another journey

Really enjoying this - thank you. Being at home as a day girl should give Cecil a good chance to get to know her parents better as an individual rather than always as part of a crowd, which should help her feel stronger and more secure in herself.

I'm just slightly worried about the last sentence and implications of needing reassurance in the future, but I guess being a day girl won't sort everything all at once and she's still got to deal with the bullying Jocelyn (if I've remembered her name properly).



Author's Response:

I'm afraid nothing is sorted out that easily. It would be nice if it was. Poor Cecil has a lot to ge through yet!
