Name: Fran

Age: 27

Location: France

SLOCS/pets/imaginary friends: a SLOC, 2 darling children (aspring to Joey's brood), no pets, not as many imaginary friends as I once had

Favourite books/characters: I love the Tyrolean books and most of the Welsh years

Least Favourite books/characters: Prefects annoys me and Wrong is just, well, wrong.

How I Got into CS: My mother loved them and they were my favourite comfort read when I was ill, and then one evening nearly 10 years ago Liss was in our sitting room talking about Guides and the conversation turned to the CS and I got back into reading the books...

How I found the CBB: See aforementioned Liss :wink: Then I was ill and sort of dropped off the face of the earth and then there was a thread on another forum, and some statuses on FB, and it sparked yearning for the CBB so here I am again!
