Loved the extra detail we got in the diary, especially her impressions of Hilda and Nell, and her wonderment that one should want to return to teach where you were a pupil, and did staff treat you differently. Matey did!! Feeling free to treat the ones she knew as mere children! *grins* This is al slightly different as we don't have her aunt's strictures about standing apart and making them obey her. Presumably she's already gone through that phase elsewhere, but was it good or bad, I wonder... Thanks, Bobcat.

You've expressed Kathie's fear so beautifully, Bobcat, that I could really feel it. Her uncle is wonderful, though, keeping things in perspective and making her do so, too. I'm sure that, even if Nell did tell Hilda anything, the latter would give Kathie the benefit of the doubt and make up her own mind about her new mistress. I loved the bit at the end, where they give her her mother's silver pendant. May it give her the courage she seems to need. Thanks, Bobcat.

Looking forward to more of this. I was just thinking Kathie is surely too young to have any skeletons in her closet, then I remembered some of my experiences at Uni, and wonder if Kathie has had the same issues.
I hope this is a positive move for her. I don't have a copy of New Mistress so may have to buy one to compare the two stories

Oh, dear, secrets in the wardrobe! I do hope her problems have been nothing too serious or her new job is scuppered before she starts. Notice her aunt is still over-protective, standing outside the bathroom door. Thanks, Bobcat.

Hilda? Warflowery? Heaven help us!!? An interesting start and am wondering where it is going. Thanks, Bobcat.
