Thanks to various Drabblers playpen folk for parts of this!

23. Chapter 26 Drunken Chatting by Beecharmer [Reviews - 6] starstarstarstarstar (2863 words)
The bubble shooter situation idea belongs to Eleanore, but included here with full permission ! The inspiration for the drunken chat I won't divulge... The children jumping on head in early hours of the morning belongs to Vick. And the red wine and coke belongs to Jayj :-)

Apoligies for some errors ! All long PMs in the chat are to Nancy not Nell!

25. Chapter 28 Some messages by Beecharmer [Reviews - 5] (1127 words)
Thanks to Finn for completely confusing me with FTW and then explaining, Vick for helping provide suggestions for what FTW could mean. The bit at the beginning is almost completely lifted from New Mistress, although a little earlier than this in the book.

26. Chapter 29 Solothurn by Beecharmer [Reviews - 8] starstarstarstarstar (1535 words)
The trip to Solothurn mentioned in Excitements at the CS
and for Robinette, and because I like them, a little more Nell Randolph and Dickie. :-D I have also realised in typing the 15th November that I have a KFBism in having had the triplets birthday already ! Ooops !

27. Chapter 30 Back to school by Beecharmer [Reviews - 5] (1997 words)

28. Chapter 31 - 21/08/11 by Beecharmer [Reviews - 7] starstarstarstar (1189 words)
Lots of credit for today's update to a chat a month or so ago with Vick, where we had this debate about fitting someone on the top shelf of a fridge... We are sane, honest. I think. Sort of.

29. Chapter 32 Down Memory Lane 27/08/11 by Beecharmer [Reviews - 6] starstarstarstarstar (1016 words)
Inspired by Vick, Eleanore, Jayj and I getting all excited a while ago about comparing our memories of Dogtanian, Thundercats, He-Man, Care Bears etc ... I THINK the dates make sense, but don't look too closely folks, in case they don't !

ETA - Minim's review has made me realise that in fact she owns some responsibility for this plot bunny too, since this bears a suspicious resemblence to some of our yibble in the playpen etc as well!!

30. Chapter 33 Tables and messages by Beecharmer [Reviews - 3] (1486 words)
Thanks to Eleanore for story input and advice ! :D

And though she wasn't involved - thanks to Vick for the *whistles innocently* - she writes it so often that I had to include it somewhere ! :-D

31. Chapter 34 by Beecharmer [Reviews - 5] starstarstarstarstar (1877 words)
Sorry for bit of delay! References to jayj Summer Holiday Outtakes and general yibble with lots of you for bits of this!

32. Chapter 35 by Beecharmer [Reviews - 7] starstarstarstarstar (1848 words)
Thanks to all reviewers and all yibblers :-)

33. Chapter 36 05/10/11 Investigating. by Beecharmer [Reviews - 7] (1997 words)

34. Chapter 37 Marking books 11/10/11 by Beecharmer [Reviews - 4] (899 words)

35. Chapter 38 Gossip 16/10/11 by Beecharmer [Reviews - 9] (1848 words)
Thanks to yibblers for ideas, esp Vick, Finn and Eleanore. Special thanks to Finn for checking my Tristan Denny sounds reasonably likely. Also to the CBBers in the Gwen Ferrars thread - I truly hadn't got Phil's name being funny before !

36. Chapter 39 25/10/11 Balloons ... by Beecharmer [Reviews - 6] starstarstarstarstar (917 words)
This plot bunny belonged to Vick, with a slight nod to jayj's sex ed drabble too :-)

37. Chapter 40 04/11/11 Twelve days of madness. by Beecharmer [Reviews - 12] starstarstarstarstar (1192 words)
Inspired by a rather random 12 days of pointy things conversation a long time ago with Vick and Abi. :-)

38. Chapter 41 Roasts and Joints 15/11/11 by Beecharmer [Reviews - 7] starstarstarstarstar (1293 words)
Now I would like to say that I came up with this out of my head, but I have to admit that I have rather strange friemds, who actually spontaneously started discussing Roasting Hilda Annersley last night ... I will leave it up to them whether they wish to reveal their cannibalistic tendancies... The report comment "Good on the whole was mine throughout most of school, with occasional deviations of "Presentation needs improving..." The Nancy Wilmot report idea comes from Eleanore, The sturdiness of Sarah Denny belongs to Finn. Vick has responsibility for general yibbleness, and jayj, well jayj needs to write more EBD unit and stop debating how well CS mistresses might cook with E and V ... Oh look, I didn't leave it up to them. Oops ! :-D

(By the time I went to bed there was also a suggestion that implied the roasting Superted too by the way ... )

39. Chapter 42 03/11/11 by Beecharmer [Reviews - 6] (1379 words)
Sorry taken a while, I couldn't get this uodate to behave. It's still not quite right, but it'll do! Thanks for readibg and reviewing.

40. Chapter 43 by Beecharmer [Reviews - 3] (2255 words)
Thanks to all Yibblers, Reviewers and Chatters who helped !

41. Chapter 44 22/12/11 (Just!) Last night of term by Beecharmer [Reviews - 3] (1458 words)
Thanks all for reading and reviewing! I am hoping to do some relatively real time posts, though probably shorter ones, over the Christmas period, though that will depend on how organised I am ! I am also very nearly at the end if this drabble, only a few more posts and then it is done.

Thanks to yibblers all, and specifically to Finn for sock fight and last night tricks inspiration !

42. Chapter 45 Last Day of Term 23/12/11 by Beecharmer [Reviews - 4] starstarstarstarstar (1428 words)
Very nearly aligned to real time now !

Several bits from the book here, although not all word for word :-)

43. Chapter 46 - 24/12/11 Journeys and Christmas Wishes by Beecharmer [Reviews - 3] (1526 words)

46. Chapter 49 A few messages. 29/12/11 by Beecharmer [Reviews - 3] (1543 words)
Thanks for reading! We are getting close to the end now, not sure how many more updates, but fingers crossed will get a chance to do a few more real time posts.

47. Chapter 50 31/12/11 The End by Beecharmer [Reviews - 9] starstarstarstarstar (2801 words)
Well this is finally it!! I'm sure I will be tempted to do a sequel at some stage, but for now this is the end of this drabble. Thank you all of you for reading and reviewing. It has made it great fun to write.

I will be taking a FileSpace break, but if anyone wants to use any of the ideas / formatting/ jokes in this to make their own version of a Staff member's FileSpace profile, please do !! I already have hopes that at least one person might be tempted. I would love to read any that people post. ( I can now finally let myself go and read the drabbles in the archive done in Facebook style, I've been avoiding them in case I copied unintentionally. )

Thanks again for showing that you liked what I was doing with this drabble. It's been a huge confidence boost this year.

Happy New Year in advance to you all!! Looking forward to 2012 and many more drabbles to come!
