I Wasn’t Really a St Trinian Girl

I was actually more of a St Clare’s or Mallory Towers girl.  I would have been too much of goody two shoes for St Trinian’s.

I’m playing catch-up with Zero to Hero today.  I think I’ve missed day 21, 22 and 23.  Today should be day 24 (I work a day behind as, as previously mentioned, the tasks don’t get posted until 5 pm in the UK and the last thing I want to do after dinner is think about my blog and a Zero to Hero task, sorry).

The task for Day 21 is:

Today’s assignment: publish a post inspired your post from Day 19, and publicize it on one or more of your social networks. 

So, as I re-blogged a post which I wrote as a guest on my stepdaughter’s blog in 2011, I thought I’d expand on that a little bit.

When I stumbled across the blog again, I saw that there was a question about midnight feasts.  As it wasn’t my blog, I never saw the question when it was posted but I’ll answer it now – I know it’s 2 years too late!

The question: did you ever have midnight feasts?  The answer: of course!  We also had a couple of teachers who took us to the swimming pool for midnight swims too.  As it was an outside pool, it was freezing!  Lots of fun though.

I’ve also found a couple of photos which weren’t in the original blog post plus a couple which were:
