I had to get out my copy of Ruey and read the original - this fits so perfectly! And I always thought Mr Flower and Mr Lannis were nice, you've not disappointed... :-)
Ah thanks Nina, that's so kind of you. Glad you're enjoying it :)

How like Joey to tell Evvy she has a lot to learn! Liked the idea of the dragon aunt being weatherbound!
She pretty much said exactly that to Evvy in Ruey! I actually do like Joey on the whole, but that did make me cringe when I read it.

I hope management is going to keep an eye on both Mr Anthony and Miss Hope, as they are both poor examples for the pupils. I hope Nurses Solomon gets a new job at a better run school soon.
Ned is certainly in trouble, I hope his letter home comes soon.
They're both awful, aren't they? Sadly too many teachers like them still exist as well.
Thanks for the reviews :)

I hope that Franny and her gang are dealt with this time. Though I fear the head is too weak and her form teacher too biased to be much use.
loved Evvy's spelling, like her I find Scrabble a challenging game and avoid it when ever possible.

Good to see Henry was right and that Ned would not get away with not working. If Edgar learns of Ned's performances or rather lack of them, I would not like to be in Ned's shoes, although being a fly on the wall would be interesting.

Sorry I've not been reviewing here, but I'm really enjoying re-reading this. Some bits feel familiar, but others not - so I cheated and found it in the Index Drabbleorum. Wow! I hadn't realised you'd posted the original so long ago, Josie, nor that I'd commented at such length at the time!! I am very glad that you're reposting it now.
This level of bullying by the girls and their gang, and Miss Langdon's treatment of Thea on top of is feels just as unacceptable now as it did when I read the story first - unfortunately, I fear, some things never change, no matter what 'zero tolerance' measures against bullying are in force. I'm so glad Nurse Solomon sent Thea home, and that she overheard the exchange between Mr Anthony, Miss Hope and Miss Langdon and intervened. I hope that Evadne can get to the bottom of what has been going on with Thea, and will be looking forward to seeing how the story unfolds.
Hi Elder. I know, I was shocked when I realised how long ago it was as well! I'm determined to finish it this time around, so there will be plenty to come that will be new as well. So glad you're enjoying it second time around :)

poor Evvy, shepherds pie is harder than it sounds if made with fresh meat, and adding veg into it as well. I think she will enjoy having a cook/housekeeper and she could learn from him/her how to cook.
Thanks for all the reviews Pauline :)
