Yes, this is very good. I think Joey's reputation as a butter-in came after she left school, perhaps long after. And she did do it far too much. And she should never have lived beside the school. Three miles away was a good distance, like at Plas Howell and Plas Gwyn. Glad Hilda and Nell put their collective feet down and stopped it.
Wasn't Sybil a prefect about the time Elinor Pennell was Head Girl? Anyway, I never saw Sybil as Head Girl, but Peggy, though she did a good job, surprised me.
Joey never did seem to grow up. EBD always described people she liked as looking ten years younger than they were, when they got to adult stage, and this is probably why she had eleven children. She seemed to have no foresight. How did she manage to have enough time with her children, and how on earth did Anna and Rosli manage with all that cooking, cleaning, mending, laundry, and so on?

Poor Sybs, Joey always had rather a down on her. Joey had always been the centre of her sister's attention when she was a child so she might have made a bit more effort to understand how SYbil could feel pushed aside.

Love this and agree with so much of what is being said.
Thank you for the comments.

Good that Ailie is getting a more measured view of her Aunt Joey as Head Girl! Why people kept kissing the delicate Robin always puzzled me. TB was still endemic when I was a child and several family members had it. Casual kissing was not encouraged!
