Re: favourite comfort food at Hertford

i've never suceeded in making a rice pudding anything as wonderful as we had back then. The Mon would go to collect the big tin from the kitchen. The anticipation! Admittedly, there were a few that loved the thick leathery black skin. Meg Gunter, now... absolutely relished it. She'd always send her ...

Re: Punishments at CH

How miserable for you to go through all that Angela. I could never bear to dish out any puinishments when I was a senior, I thought it was very cruel, and who were we but mere pupils, just a few years older than juniors? Punishment , I believe then and now-is the job of school staff to administer. ...

Re: Punishments at CH

Sixes Study! There seems to have been a period of years in Sixes when the Study were allowed free rein in dishing out punishments. I feared and dreaded them '64-'65. when I was made so utterly miserable. I couldn't cope with always being in trouble at all! But I've written enough about those days, I...

Re: 2013 !!

Totally amazed by 2013 so far.

I have a whole new life all of a sudden. I have met a wonderful man and have moved in with him in Staffordshire!

Re: 50 years ago, in the snow.

Cleared paths - yes definitely!

There was a terrific thing in House for putting milk out on the snowy dorm windowsills to make "ice cream"!

Re: Happy Birthday Angela Woodford.

This is a serious matter. I have done some research, Frances. Clairol Shimmer Lights shampoo and conditioner. Recommended both by blondies and silver foxes. Purple products - but don't be alarmed - it's because purple is the opposite in the colour spectrum and helps to create a pretty silver. My sis...

Re: Happy Birthday Angela Woodford.

40! 40 is nothing! :roll: At least I haven't gone all grey, I console myself. Just a few grey hairs round the edges. A tiny touch up with a bit of L'Oréal, and I'm ready to rock and roll. Think of the free prescriptions! And I can't think of much else I'd get free. Now I have to learn to drive a gia...

Re: Happy Birthday Angela Woodford.

Thank you very much indeed! A landmark indeed. 60! It feels weird. But now life's changing completely. Moving... new bloke :shock:... new studies! Running, Andy! I'm slightly anxious on slippery surfaces and longing for when the weather warms up a bit. The half-marathon isn't that far away! I barely...

But Pierre! The Paris Lingerie Show! I'm a) deeply envious and b) attending as a civil servant? Please explain - I shall know no rest until you do. Do French civil servants need particularly superb underpinnings?

On a fashion note - how about a co-ordinating posing pouch?

Re: school scarf

Spoony, I would knit you one, if given loads of dosh upfront for the purest, most beauteous wool. A gentleman such as yourself would not tolerate a hideous acryllic horror, I do see that! :shock: The knitting group to which I belong meet in a Wool Shop, and group members get a discount on the purest...

Certainly not part of our uniform,Frances. We had a small scarf in our house colour - royal blue for 6's! But, late in life, I've got a CH scarf knitted by Mrs Plum.
