Re: School Prospectus

... but Old Blues have the happy knack of knowing the right people. I think like bread upon the waters it may return a thousandfold. As all advertisers know it is difficult to get the target right. The knack is getting enough into the right place and this means casting the net widely. (I think I hav...

Re: School Prospectus

I can see why the prospectus is of concern to many of us Old Blues who are totally committed to the founding principles of Housey. Maybe it is a marketing exercise directed at the privileged and wealthy. But let us pause and reflect for a moment; if attracting a higher proportion of full fee-payers ...

Re: Old Beds, Settles Etc

But I have craved one for years .........

.... trouble is I cannot get out of the CH habit of chucking clothes into the settle as I undress. Without a settle to embrace them, they just end on the floor and Judith complains. Please, please help me to find a settle and save my marriage.

No - I was aware! She was a sweetie. We spoke on the phone sometimes and met once at CH. It was good to be reminded of her as I stumbled over this the other day.

Re: Old Blues Day

On my rare visit to the forum these days, I was saddened to here that some of us are unwell, but so heartened by the courage inherent in Old Blues. OB Day was indeed wonderful, but would have been all the better if those wonderful ladies fighting the b*****s could have joined with us. Next year, I a...
