So, we've started back at school for our second term, and I'm super ready for the next holiday after just a week. It's just constant work and lack of sleep, and I can't help but wonder where all the exciting boarding school mysteries, adventures, and midnight excursions are? Being a central auckland high school, that doesn't take boarders, the closest thing we've got is Justin Biebers limo supposedly driving past (information spread around by very reliable third form sources) .What would make it all more bearable, perhaps, (both the school monotony and the fact that justin bieber coming near our school was the highlight of some girls' year )is a uniform as amazing as some of these (all illustrations are from my old girls' annuals from the '50s). We get to wear mufti in our final year, but until then its a plain blue skirt, light blue blouse, and a blue jumper that smells intensely of wet dog if it gets even slightly wet. Nothing on these cute little pinafores, hats, and blouses, and certainly not on those coats!! Wow.
What I love most about the last one is that, in the story below, the girl on the right is described as 'fat and dark, with a passion for doughnuts'.
