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.

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

. ‘Bone-dry all night, your
Ladyship,’ Nanny Verity
replied, her eyes twinkling
like rain-washed blackberries.
‘Then a tiddly-widdly the
size of Loch Ness two ticks
before upsy-daisy time.’ ”
