WOYWW 748: Over the Hump

Yay for being over half way to half term this week.  It is the longest half term of the school year.

My desk shows the latest addition to my Chalet school book collection which arrived on Monday.  I do have copies of all the books in Armada paperback but am gradually replacing them with the unabridged Girls Gone By publications.  I also get the additional fill in titles when I can so have over 70 books in the series now.  One of these days I will have another read through.
As you can see I am using the #inktober2023 prompts for this month's drawings.  The memory was one shared at Dad's funeral of a rice pudding related incident at lunch one day (we all came home for lunch from school/work).
Don't forget to visit Julia at Stamping Ground for more desks and WOYWW fun.  Stay safe and Happy WOYWW.
PS I did visit last week Zsuzsa but could not leave a comment however hard I tried.

I used to love the Chalet School books too. I wondered if you'd be incorporating Inktober into your drawings! Happy WOYWW Helen #?

I have never heard of the Chalet School Books, oh my! Read the 21 Famous Five Books some of the Secret Seven then a teacher said they were too young for me so I stopped reading altogether! Hmmmm. Love your path drawing and the story behind your memory one, Your Dad will always be with you in your memories, so special. Hugs BJ#?

Like BJ, I've never heard of those books. I see you are doing Inktober this year. Love the spiders.

Did you get a WOYWW 748 with Julia saying they have no internet? When I shared my link, POOF, it was all gone.

I haven't heard of those books either but they look interesting, might just look into them. I miss my father too, he dies at the start of Covid so it was difficult time for us but time is a healer. I know what you mean about this term, it does seem to go on for ever. Have a lovely week and a happy woyww. Hugs, Angela x1x

I’ve n vet heard of the Chalet school books, I confess. Looking at the cover of the one you showed us, it looks more dramatic than the Malory Towers I loved as a child.
I love your daily drawings, especially the rice pudding memory one, that will always be with you.
Sending hugs
Take care and happy WOYWW

Your book took me back to myk childhood when I got Girl magazine and School Friend. Happy days.
Love how you keep your daily drawing going - still amazes me how you interpret the words, so clever.
Hugs, neet 8 xx

Tracy said...

I'll have a google on your Chalet Girl books 📚 Sarah, haven't seen them before. I really enjoy seeing your drawings each week ... the one with your Dad extra special and I know in my heart ❤️ he'll have been watching you from next door as you drew, only ever a heartbeat away. Sending hugs with much love Tracy #12 xxx

I can't get my head round halfway through the first half-term - seems like school only just re-started!! I remember the chalet school books, that's quite a collection you have. Great cards as always, Have a good week, love n hugs, Cindy xx #14

Christine said...

What a super thing to collect . . always amazes me how we are so different. I like this idea as it will be great to reread the whole lot. I have all the 'Angelique' books and have just started reading them again . . lost count which time this is!! lol Just a hint . . . the first book was serialised in the Revellie newspaper back in the fifties!
Enjoy your week

I hadn’t heard of the Chalet School books either! My mum was the village librarian and I used to sit in a corner of the library while she worked and read my way around pretty much all the books. Liked the daily drawings, especially the cousins, that shows your logical brain at work!

I hadn’t heard of the Chalet Girl stories before. There is a lot of them to collect! Great drawings. Happy WOYWW. Angela #9

Julia Dunnit said...

My gosh, you'll enjoy them when you start to re read the Chalet series, what a great collection, more great memories! I love that the 'rice pudding incident' has made it into your daily journal, very fitting that such a prompt should be a personal story. We have a 'roast beef incident' which still makes my Sis and I giggle like children!!

Twiglet said...

No I haven't heard of the Chalet books. We loved Famous Five and Mallory Towers. I think those books lead you into the love of burying your head in a good story. It's with us for life. x x Jo

I'm so glad you explained "memory"! I had all kinds of scenarios going through my head! I think "path" is my fav today because it looks like a pleasant windy path to walk down in the fall! Thanks for your visit, have a great week! Lindart #19
