Summary: I had a sudden moment of wondering what might have happened if Jo Maynard's family had been all boys, rather than mixed, as EBD has it. The consequences of this idea are set out here. The timescale fluctuates between a 'now' of approximately the time of Adrienne and earlier periods including the time of the triplets' birth, but mainly concentrating on the Armishire period.

Summary: This was a combined effort by a dozen or so of us on CBB, posting as 'Round Robin' to conceal our identities, during December 2014, with a 'reveal' on New Year's Day 2015. It is a series of Christmas letters written by various characters over the course of the Chalet Series, I am not yet sure whether the original authors will come and post them here themselves, or whether I will be doing them all with a note as to whose they were, but as I did the first one, I am starting it off now, and will either post or organise the posting of the other 23 letters. I'm adding in the others who are registered here as co-authors anyway.
