During the mid-term break in studies, the girls from the St. Clare Centre went on retreat. Madam Sue, very much acting like Mama Sue, was on hand to make sure they had their tooth brush, etc. and to see them off.
As it turned out, it rained all the previous night and the bus could not make it into St. Clare due to the mud. So the girls had to walk the muddy road, carrying their belongings, to the bus. Mama Sue was right there with them... slipping and sliding along.
