Hello all!

Details of me? Well, 44 times around the sun, I'm from Glasgow and I'm a writer/jobseeker. Have no pets - not yet recovered from losing the last of my four cats a couple of years ago.

I'm entirely new to the Chalet School, just reading the first book in the series. ( I'm at the part where the slightly fishy Jessica shows up with her slightly fishy parents! )

I came to the Chalet via my love of illustration for childrens' books and comics, and through my desire to write a school story of my own after reading a couple of the Morcove School tales. I'm working on a graphic novel called 'Top Girls,' which I'll share with you all if it ever gets off the ground.

Very glad to be here and hope I can contribute something and learn a lot.

I suppose I should ask my first newbie question here: is there a glossary of slang from the Chalet school anywhere? If so, I'd be glad if some knowledgeable bod would point me in the right direction!

Hello and welcome! I don't think there's a glossary of slang as such, but I'm sure if you ask about anything you'll get an answer. :D

Good morning, and welcome!

You've stumped me straightaway - I can't recall an episode answering that description in any of the books...

Was it Juliet? I wonder where I got Jessica from?

This is what comes of having five books on the go at once!

I'm a bit late but welcome to the CBB, Oscar!! It should be fun to go through the series with you as you read each book for the first time!
