Alice-Miranda and Saturday Disney
This week has been such fun. My best grown up friend Jacqueline Harvey and the Year 7 boarders at Abbotsleigh spent Tuesday afternoon filming a segment for Saturday Disney. The lovely Shae and Sally lost a dare and had to go to boarding school. It was funny the sorts of things they thought about boarding school – Sally said that it was ‘really strict’ and Shae said that ‘they wash your mouth out with soap’. Of course none of that is true and it was lovely that they were able to spend the afternoon and evening having a proper boarding experience. They got to play with the Guide Dog puppy Nelson and Barney the rabbit as well as going to class, having dinner and a sleepover in the boarding house. I don’t think I’ve ever seen the Year 7 girls so excited. The Headmistress and Head of Boarding looked in on them too and I think Shae and Sally would happily come to boarding school all the time if they didn’t have to go back to the Disney House. This week my new adventure, Alice-Miranda On Holiday will be out in the shops. We’re launching it at The Children’s Bookshop at Beecroft at 4.30pm on Thursday 2 September if you would like to come along. Everyone is very welcome. Hope to see you soon.
