Oh don't say things like "what could possibly go wrong" !!! LOTS of things could !! But am glad she spoke to Biddy anyway. Hope the bunnies continue to play, I NEED more of this story !
Your wish, my command!

Lovely update. The interaction between Peggy and Rhyll is wonderful and they complement each other so well. Interesting remark of Margot Venables to Rosalie. Do we get to know who it was about as it has obviously put ideas into Rosalie's head with regard to Peggy and Rhyll.
Oh, I think so. Sooner or later...

Oooh I like that detail of the history of blind eye turning ! Thanks, this story is really addictive, I've somehow missed all sorts of updates, sorrry !
:D Had to get a little mention, didn't it? Nell/Con is basically canon, after all...

What a difficult situation for Rosalie. I do like her here - she seems a much more real, three-dimensional person than EBD's version.
Thank you! That's high praise indeed - Rosalie is a real favourite of mine.

Hooray for Peggy's courage! I'm loving this story, thank you so much for writing it. The hesitation on both sides has been very realistic; I revelled in the moment when Peggy blushed at the Lady Chatterley quotation; and Mary's dismissive reaction was so plausible and of the time. I'm looking forward to the next chapter and hopefully a flourishing of their romance!
Thank you - that's an especially lovely comment! Glad you're enjoying.

Very brave of Peggy to take the leap with Rhyll even if she thought she would respond. As Christmas is coming perhaps there will be a business reason for Nell to put in an appearance before the end of term and still be back in Switzerland for her own end of term.
Mm... Possibly, possibly! Thinking on it. Thank you!

Well for the time being Peggy can relax with Mary but I hope, if things continue to develop between the two of them, that Mary will still be relaxed about it. Are Hilda and Nell coming into this mix I wonder to reassure them?
Ha! Nell keeps trying to put in an appearance and it is taking me a lot of self-control to remember that she is unfortunately in Switzerland at this point and cannot simply waltz in to the story, alas...

So likely, people so often do dismiss it as admiration. Brave Peggy though for telling her. Interesting that Mary wasn't that surprised though. Thanks, you do paint these two and their family closeness so well.

Lovely seeing these two together. These are real favourite characters of mine, and I'm tempted to ask for a spin off with Mary's life and how things work out for her - but not till we have more of Evvie and Peggy please ! This feels very real, though it concerns me slightly that Mary or maybe now Rosalie will work out what is going on, and I don't know how she will react. More soon please !!
Thank you! Feel free to take up that one yourself btw... I am not quite sure why all these other people keep intruding on this story, which was supposed to be very nice and self-contained...

Interesting take on the staff room politics here, and can see it might be difficult for Evvie, not wanting to get too drawn in, but understanding how it feels to be a bit excluded among so many old girls.

Thank you, I hope that Mary, if she does guess, is understanding. It would be an interesting drabble if Mary Burnett hadn't got married, as then Biddy wouldn't have come to be history mistress, nor would Carola probably. But more so, if she had stayed with the school she would probably have been a more likely person to be senior enough and with it enough to look after the school rather than Nancy when Hilda goes away. Sure there are other changes too... *leaves bunnies and hopes someone takes them*
