Hand – and bottom

I always hated history at school, and so if some homework wasn’t going to get done (and that happened at lot to me LOL), then history was always odds-on favourite for it.

Unfortunately, by not doing my homework three times in as many weeks, I totally pushed my luck, and Mr Harris, my history teacher, decided to treat me to a visit to the senior mistress, Miss Haynes. This was the mid-70s, when corporal punishment was still an available sanction in most British schools, and Miss Haynes had a reputation for being pretty unforgiving; in fact, us girls often referred to her by the nickname ‘HaynesCanes’!
