School and other things

Hello, I hope you’ve had a lovely week. School has been lots of fun. Ever since Miss Grimm came out of her study you wouldn’t believe how many things have changed. For a start she comes to assembly every week and she’s started inviting girls to the study for afternoon tea. At first some of the girls were terribly nervous but they soon realised that Miss Grimm didn’t eat children – only Mrs Smith’s delicious apple cinnamon tea cake! I think Mummy and Daddy are getting used to me being away from home – although Mummy still sniffles quite a lot when I telephone her. I’ve told her that if she doesn’t stop I might have to stop calling as it’s just too upsetting for her. She promised that she’d try. Anyway, she and Daddy have been very busy. Mummy’s just become Chairman or should it be Chairwoman of the Board of Kennington’s which I’ll tell you all about another time. I can’t wait for Miss Grimm and Mr Grump’s wedding and Miss Higgins and Constable Derby’s too. It’s going to be very busy with them on consecutive weekends and all of the girls at school involved in one way or another. But I’ll tell you about that next time too. I have to go – Millie and I are off riding. Mr Charles is looking after a couple of ponies for one of the men in the village and we’re going to take them out. My little fellow is called Stumps and he’s terribly old and very quiet – which will make a change from Bonaparte, my naughty pony. We have to go and collect our picnic. Have a good weekend! Lots of love, Alice-Miranda xx

Alice-Miranda is so pretty – your chocolate-curled student from when you knew her must really look alike to Alice-Miranda!

I have all the Alice Miranda books all the way up to Alice Miranda keeps the beat. I am even dressing up as Alice Miranda in Alice Miranda at the palace for book week.

Miss Harvey, I’m sorry to be rude and I know you must be awfully busy, being a writer, but are you writing any more Alice Miranda books?

Cool! Thanks for replying to me! Most famous people never reply to my messages, probably because they are to busy being famous, but I will most DEFINITELY check out the movie! Do you know wether it is on Netflix?
