Rosemary or Rosie (just not Rosy - for some weird reason I find that spelling aesthetically displeasing!)Age (ish!):
Living in Cheshire but travelling into North Wales frequently for my MA in Arthurian Literature.SLOCs/children/pets/imaginary friends:
Living with my parents so I'll count the family pets - a Labrador and a Jack Russell (who both make Bruno look like the epitome of well-trained doghood...) Favourite and least favourite books and characters:
In general I prefer the Tyrol and Armishire set books. Not too keen on the trend towards the end of the series for introducing a new character then abandoning them in the following books. I've always had a special fondness for Miss Slater How you got into the Chalet School:
I borrowed The School at the Chalet
from the library when I was about eight or so, and my mother pounced on it in gleeful recognition and remembered all the Chalet hardbacks stashed at my grandmother's house.*
Unfortunately, they were stored in a damp garage for a few decades, so they're not in the best of condition. And my mother threw away a lot of the tatty dust-jackets. And at the age of thirteen, I merrily repaired the remaining covers with sellotape... I suppose you could say we have sinned against the Chalet School Hardback unto three generations... How you found the CBB:
Googling 'Chalet School Dust-jackets'!
I don't know how frequently I'll mange to post what with imminent essay deadlines and thesis preparation, but I've really enjoyed reading the Formal Discussions so hopefuly I'll manage to participate.
* We were missing the very last ones and a few randoms but I have almost remedied the situation (albeit with paperbacks) much to my bank balance's horror!
