Such a pity that Joey won't be reconciled with her oldest but some things are just too difficult!

Joey's problems are still causing difficulties for her children.

I'm glad Kathie, Nancy and Ros are all going to meet their future colleagues. Otherwise they'll all just get more and more apprehensive, Swiss and Welsh. Hope the meeting goes well, though I can't imagine it'll be totally free of problems.

Madge is certainly keeping things moving and trying to anticipate any problems.

Look forward to seeing the meeting - would be surprising if there weren't any issues or doubts, but hopefully nothing that can't be resolved

I am loving this. Secretly I have never liked Joey. My mum had a friend just like her. Bouncing interfering school girl until the day she died. She had been head girl at her posh boarding school and never got over herself.



Author's Response:

The later Joey was over the top for me, the younger one with faults acceptable.Thank you for the comment.

Joey needs to see a specialist in neuroscience as she is acting as someone with Early onset dementia.  There were a few specialists who understood and diagnosed it then and in many ways it is easier to cope with a disease with its correct label then thinking it i a side effect of depression.



Author's Response:

Thank you for the suggestion, it is an avenue Jem will be exploring.

Really enjoying this, great to see Madge rising to the challenge, in spite of all the problems with Jo. Good that Jack has been able to have a few days' break with Jem -  he must really need it.

I know how draining it can be, thank you for your comment.

Dollie what a good idea, restarting St. Hilda House.  It will give the staff space and allow a couple of Mistresses and a House Matron to run the Houses.

Thank you for all of your comments, they are appreciated.

Interesting that the Wales branch is sorry for the Swiss one.  Very different from when the Swiss branch opened.  Madge involving Hilda and Nell in preparation for retirement is advanced thinking for the time period.

Poor Jack bearing the brunt of Joey's illness. I hope it doesn't all get too much for him or Madge.

Jack and Madge both have a hard job to do.  Pleased Madge picked up Rosalie and Matron anxieties

Look forward to seeing how all this works out, especially the uniform question. At least at the beginning they'll each be wearing what they have, perhaps in time there will be some sort of compromise, also probably some updating, the blue summer dresses will probably seem very old-fashioned n UK.



Author's Response:

The uniform question is one of Madges headaches, thank you for commenting.

I am feeling sorry for this version of Joey,  it is almost as if she has developed early onset dementia.  It is tough for those around her, but she is at the stage of knowing something is wrong but unable to grasp what.



Author's Response:

Thank you for the comment, I agree there is an element of sadness redgarding Joey.

Reviewer: ivohenry Signed [Report This]

Very sad that Joey is so confused, she's living in her memories.

The school merger will no doubt throw up a few problems, expected and unexpected, but sounds like a great idea.



Author's Response:

Joey is living in the past, perhaps unable to cope with the present, thank you for the comment.

It's quite an undertaking for Madge. Be interesting to see how the girls settle down together.

Its a very big job, not like the way it was done in the Swiss move ;0) Thank you for commenting.

Interesting and quite an unheaval for everyone but a perfectly logical thing for Madge to do.  Pity Joey will probably never understand.  Looking forward to the next update.

Its a big but necessary move.Thank you for reading and commenting.
