Due to the fact that this story is set pretty well in the current time period, and my wish to retain some characters that we know from the series itself, we have a rather aged Hilda and Nell (and others) holding the reigns here. They are not as old as they would be, but some of their reactions do come from the fact that they are still working at the school when others would be long since retired.
I may or may not post much more of this particular story - this was just a practice to explore the practicalities of posting!
Whether or not I'll post fic's here is still hanging in the balance, and will no doubt depend on the day as to what I think, but... If I know roughly what to expect, I can at least be somewhat prepared if I decide to give it a go properly...
Thanks to everyone who reviewed. :)

Elder... It's good hearing you enjoy Rachel's story so much. I'm not sure whether more of it appears in this story or not - there were some concerns about it possibly needing a 'maturity' warning, so it eventually becomes a stand-alone story, which I will post once I'm sure it's no longer included in the rest of the story.
Here's another little bit now...
Thank you once again to those who have so faithfully reviewed.
Thanks once again to all who reviewed! :)
Thanks once again all... Must admit this is one of my favourite sections - in that I think things pick up again, rather than simply being filler-like.
Slightly longer post for you all today...
Thanks for the reviews all...
Smaller chapter again now.

Hi all... Thanks for the reviews. Sorry about the delay - mix of computer problems mixed with Christmas stuff. Hope you enjoy this chapter...
Thanks for the comments all.
With all this change around the place, how's Rachel coping... Let's go see! ;)
Thanks once again for all the comments. Here's a slightly longer bit again, what happens when you mix a mischievous toddler with a Joey whose wrapped up in her work???
I think this might be one of my favourite scenes.
Happy New Year all by the way!
Happy New Year everyone...
Thanks once again for all the reviews.
Speaking of Tamara's difficult evening - let's see how she coped.
Thank you once again all. I guess that life is rarely ever straightforwards, and sometimes throws a spanner in the works when we're planning on doing things - and Ashleigh and Jo did that for Len!
Now it's time to see what happened from their points of view...
Warning - rather lengthy chapter!
Thanks to those who reviewed. Here's another little update.3/1/12
Thank you everyone for the reviews on everything I posted yesterday.
Another change of subject now...
Thanks once again for all the reviews, and to those who read/reread this story without always commenting. I had a look through the numbers of times various chapters had been read and was amazed at how high some of those numbers were - so hello out there!!! ;)
Once again, thank you for all the reviews.
Now we've looked at the staff for a bit, let's go see how the girls react to the latest bombshell they've had thrown at them 6/1/12

Back to a bit more story, and see where it goes from there...
Thank you once again all. This could be rather long... Sorry! :)
Thank you all once again. I'm not too sure that this next chapter answers any questions really, but it might be a start.
Thanks once again to everyone who commented. I'm not sure that this answers any questions, we seem to be going in other directions. All the same, I hope you enjoy... ;)
Thank you once again everyone. We are slowly approaching the run up to half term - by which point I think I'll probably better start another part, considering how lengthy this part has got!
We're having a bit more jumping fore and back between Rachels visit, and the one taking place between Len and Reg, and Tamara here...
Thank you once again all...
Several people have asked what Joey thought of Rachel's story in its finished form. Well, here it is! ;-)

Thank you once again to all who commented.
Coming up - a little bit of light hearted fun! :)
Hi again everyone!
Thanks for your patience recently, and all the reviews. There's a real chance that people who are reading through for a second time will notice differences to this section from the first posting. It's changed rather! (if people don't and would like, I'll explain in later chapters...) Slightly longer chapter again now.
Hope that everyone's having a good weekend!
Thanks once again all. Shorter chapter today.
Thanks once again everyone. Here's a little more...
Slightly longer chapter here again... More fall out.
Thank you once again everyone.
Shorter update this evening
Thank you once again all for the comments. For those of you who haven't read through this on the board, the inspection was previously held by a newspaper crew, after a letter was published in it about the teachers - particularly Len, reminding people of her fathers illness. This may not hold together as well with the change of the letter being sent only to the inspectorate...
lengthier post this evening...
Thank you again all...
Thank you once again to Mary, Elder, and Beecharmer for taking the time to comment.
Another slightly longer section here - with whispers of fun to come in the future...
Thank you once again all... I'm thinking about starting another part with the next post - so...
