Nanny Verity has worked at Thyme Castle since she
was a young girl training to be a housemaid. She cares
for Justin, Robyn and baby Albion as though they are
her own family - and in return they totally adore her.

“ Nanny Verity beamed at everyone, her eyes
twinkling like rain-washed blackberries. She
settled the baby in his highchair and fetched him
a bowl of porridge and a spoon.

. ‘Did Albion have a good night’s sleep, Nanny?’
enquired Lady Henny.

. ‘Bone-dry all night, your Ladyship,’ Nanny Verity
replied, with her sunniest smile. ‘Then a
tiddly-widdly the size of Loch Ness two ticks
before upsy-daisy time.’ ”
