Calendar Girls crossover with the mistresses and doctors' wives stripping off to raise money for the San? :lol:


"Dear Tom. Good news: We don't need a dolls house this year. We found a new fundraiser."

I think that last comment should be in the "Lines unlikely to be found in a CS novel" thread. :lol:
As for the the CS Calendar Girls idea, if only I had time, I'd write a drabble about that. Great idea, Aquabird. Don't you want to write it?

I'm devoid of inspiration for any CS fic at the moment, I'm afraid. I think I'm a bit scunnered from doing the book discussion threads, my recent fic has been strictly non-CS, but no doubt I'll get back into it after a break. I always come back to the CS in the end. :D But if anyone else wants to pick up the Calendar Girls idea I'd love to read it, some of the comedy drabbles on here have been superb. :D

I'm guessing skirts rather than gym tunics or frocks?

A coat and skirt which matched would be what was then called a costume but we would now call a suit. This may be what she is referring to, I think we get this in one of the uniform lists somewhere

As they are at finishing school, I hadn't thought of them wearing tunics.

As the houses are kept so warm by the huge ceramic stoves, it's quite possible that they were wearing simple cotton frocks, light stockings and simple shoes.
