Residuary Legatee is the title given by the
author to her role as Headmaster's wife at two well known Midland public
schools. The title encompasses the multitude of jobs the author was expected to
take on which included help with the annual school play, large scale
housekeeping and the entertaining of important guests, together with more
unusual tasks such as cooking dinner for the entire school when neither the
cook nor the catering assistants turned up for work.
The author's description of the characters she met along the way together with her tales of a generation of youngsters for whom she acted as a stand in mother make fascinating and amusing reading.
