A vist to the Headmistress’s study with a punishment slip will have one of two outcomes. Either bent over the desk for six of the best with her cane, it stings like mad but at least it is over quickly. Worse is when Miss Jennings gets her well worn gym slipper out of the drawer, pushes back her chair, smoothes her skirt and points at her lap. She seems to enjoy making the girls wriggle and cry.
I like the sound of her slipper and can picture her weilding it.
