As far as I remember, there was nothing in the Armada paperbacks about Nancy's family beyond the fact that she had five brothers and an older sister; consequently, when it comes to Nancy's family, I've allowed invention free rein.
Please don't ask me why I decided to start writing about Christmas in June, because I honestly couldn't tell you. *shrugs* Don't be expecting frequent updates - I still have to finish WMK, and I have half a dozen other little Nancy/Kathie drabbles in various unfinished stages, so this one will have to compete with the others for my writing time. I should really have kept this first chapter back until I'd finished some of the others, but I don't have that much self-restraint ;)
Sorry for the massive gap between updates - it's been so long that I actually had to go back and read the first chapter to remind myself of what I'd written!
As usual, many apologies for the massive gap between updates!
*grovels to any readers who still remain*
I truly am hoping to manage to update more regularly on this one now - and hopefully even have it finished before next Christmas!
I know there was a Hilda Wilmot mentioned in the books, but there was never anything to say that she was Nancy's sister, so I've decided she wasn't. There is a reason for this - whenever I read the name 'Hilda', I get a mental image of Miss Annersley, and I didn't want to have to spend the entire drabble mentally correcting myself!
Although I'd already chosen a name for Nancy's sister, I had no particular thoughts on what sort of a person she was - but after reading jayj's wonderful Where You Belong, I just couldn't picture the woman in any other way, so blame jayj for her! ;)
