HI cheryl sorry iam going loopy in my old age. yes alex was a twin but i had forgotten. my sister penny said she rememberd she is 52 and i (caroline) am 51 i also remember your name and i think janet but not her surname. i also recall a girl called rita. did you know carol and tony i think thier surname was tompson or something like that. My fondest memory at carbrooke was having to go to the clinic with my cold sores. they use to put this purple violet all over my lips and chin then send me back to school. remember the boys use to try and kiss eveyone. one day they turned me around and saw my purple lips and quickly went running the other way. I also remember the NITS and the nit nurse. caroline
