I've been gong through the A-Z of authors on the SDL and catching up with loads of drabbles that I'd not previously read, and I found one that I'd like to re-read, but have no idea where it is.

It's very short (I think only one or two chapters), and is about Kathie going to visit Nancy in a hospital / care home, as she's got dementia. Kathie then goes to Nell and Hilda's place, and Hilda's doing women's institue business, so Nell and Kathie have a chat.

I've looked through stories featuring the four characters, and gone back through the houses, (and also sorted by genre) but still can't find it or recognise it from the descriptions.

I don't know who wrote it or what it's called - can anyone help?!

Think it's this one. It's on LGM

http://www.annersley.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=692

If link doesn't work, End of Life by Daydreamer in Finishing School fiction

Don't think it's on SDL

Ah!! That's the one - thank you so much.

I knew I'd read it somewhere. No wonder I couldn't find it on SDL..... :oops:

Am now after another one, if anyone can help?
I have no idea whether it's on LGM, SDL or the archives (I suspect the archives), but I recall reading a drabble AGES ago which involved Phil Graves who had been a POW during the war and was back at Bosherton recovering - I think it was a tie/back story in with 'Carola.'

Have recently read Carola, and after that and the recent episode in my drabble between Hilary and Phil, the plot bunnies bit and I'm writing a 'how they got together' story, but don't want to rehash anything that's already been done.

Any help on this one would be gratefully received!

You may be thinking of Alternative Joey by Beecharmer, It's on LGM, in Finishing School. It's a very long drabble, but part of it includes Phil being a POW, reported Missing believed killed, and needing a long recovery period. Can't remember how far into the story this section comes, but probably at least page 2, possibly page 3. It is basically Joey's story, but Phil plays a very important role. No spoilers in case someone wants to read it!

Hope this works!

Ahhhh! Yes! I remember now. I have read the whole thing. Thank you - I shall go back and have a look. Knowing the story, I think I'll be ok in my scribblings!
