Location: Australia
Name: Joyce

Age: 40-odd

Location: Sydney, Australia

SLOCs/children/pets/imaginary friends: Single, no children and no pet. But plenty of both imaginary and real friends.

Favourite and least favourite books and characters:
For some reason I love Tom. She thinks about other people's feelings even if she is annoyed by them e.g. Rosalie and I just love all the doll's houses she makes.
I also love Barbara Chester and Jo Scott.

Least favourite would have to be adult Joey. She is simply too all encompassing.

How you got into the Chalet School: Found the first book at a library when I was 10 and it all took off from there.

How you found the CBB: Online while searching for Chalet School books to buy.

Hi Joyce, good to hear more about you. Was it you who wrote a great drabble a few years ago about the CS as a reality TV show? :lol:

Yes, that was me. Glad you liked it :D

I was obsessed with America's Next Top Model at the time and that insane idea of turning it into a Chalet contest popped in my mind when one of the 'models' said "well, what do you expect when you put so many girls together?"

Cheers,
Joyce

Hi Joyce! That drabble Aquabird mentioned sounds brilliant; where can I find it?

It's this one from the drabble archives: Elinor's Top Chalet Girl. Definitely worth a read. :lol:

I read 'Elinor's Top Chalet Girl' last night after Aquabird linked it, Joyce, and I loved it! It was absolutely hilarious and had me in stitches the entire time. :D
