Bio:

I have a reputation for angst which is thoroughly undeserved, because my characters always end up with a realistic happy ever after - whatever I might put them through before! For some reason, I seem to spend most of my time writing stories about the Maynard family and what they get up to after the series, though I have been known to make suffer other members of The Clan too.

An AU inspired by a CBB thread. Grizelda has left school and joined the upper classes, but her shocking behaviour and unconventional outlook on life lead to some hot times.

 

**Please note**: I have no idea what the plot bunnies are doing and if there will be more or not. I assume that we shall find out in due course!

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.

In order to cheer up Abi, I have decided to write some short scenes to make her smile! These are done very much off-the-cuff, and are absolutely dreadful, so she has to cheer up soon just to stop everybody else suffering!
