Hello, just wanted to introduce myself after joining...
Location (approximate - no actual address, please!): Vienna, but mostly in a world of my own...
SLOCs/children/pets/imaginary friends: one husband, many pets by proxy, scores of imaginary friends
Favourite and least favourite books and characters:
Favourite book: well, aside from books like School At and Exile, which I think pretty much any Chalet fan loves, I always find myself re-reading the early Tirol books and the holiday books, Rescue and Joey Goes to the Oberland etc.
Least favorite book: hmm, well, Redheads always seems to me like it was written for a dare, but a lot of the UK books blend into one for me, too. Oh, and Mystery.
Favourite characters: Oh, Madge is lovely. I always wished I was more like her, or Gisela, maybe. Jo can be a bit overwhelming sometimes, but I think she means well... Some characters I don't want to like, like Grizel, or Margot, but somehow I can't help it, they're just so understandable.
Least favorite characters: Another tricky one. I like how cosy the CS feels, so essentially anyone who makes it feel somehow less cosy... Jack Lambert, perhaps, sometimes Grizel (but see above!)...
How you got into the Chalet School: My mother was a fan as a child and bought be one of the Armada paperbacks - Head Girl. It's always been one of my favorites ever since. After that there was no stopping me.
How you found the CBB: By googling the CS.
Anyway, that was me, thanks for reading
