You should be out kicking a ball about, getting drunk and going to raves young man!

Have a good holiday

Hahaha...

Ferah is completely correct. It wasn't that Tatiana was better in comparison to Olga; Tatiana was simply blessed with the power of persuasion and a deep sense of responsibility and caring.

Really? Where? At Tsarskoe Selo, near Children Island? Kidding on back, I would say Olga was leader of pack rather than Tatiana.

Really? Olga was the eldest, and the most independent, but I think Tatiana had a more mature attitude towards things and didn't let things weigh her down, like they could do to Olga. Tatiana had a strong sense of duty, much like her loved mother. That's why Tatiana gives me the impression of being like the eldest, or the "leader". I think that sort of character is very admirable, and I admire Tatiana even more because she was also very devoted and affectionate.

As for Olga, I think she probably deeply appreciated her sister for being able to take charge of things - not to say she was lazy, but it may not have been her "thing" or greatest talent to take responsibility of households and know what practical things to do immediately in emergencies. But like Holly said, it's not like one of the girls was better than the other. Both of them had very admirable qualities and I admire both sisters very much.

 Are there any diary entries, letter,etc. from OMA which can prove this subject?
Tatiana's propensity is being motherly, I think so.

I don't know, I think Tatiana had similar social qualities like her mother.

Yes -- many accounts say that she was similar to her mother.

But Tatiana longs for friendships outside the court which her mother doesn't allow her to do so (likewise OMA).

They all wanted to have different friends that they could call their own. Even though sisters are fun, sometimes people just want to get away from their family for a bit. Including Grand Duchesses.  :)

Yah..you need to socialize with others, too, so that you could improve yourself.
Bad thing is that Alexandra thought all people outside are rude and therefore would not make good friends for the GDs.

I don't think Alexandra thought everyone was rude, she had very much trouble communicate with the Russian court.

It's true, Lindy.
Well, Alix only sometimes allows the OTMAA's cousins to play with them for she thinks they have bad traits.
I think she dislikes some of Nicky's relatives because of their behavior.

1) Tatiana was indeed seen as leader of daughter couple.

2) Alix was 'against' Nikolasha, M.F. GDs Olga A., and Ella, called as 'Moscow 's clique' which were against Rasputin, of course.

Sorry, GD Xenia Alexandrovna, read some her 1907 letters with not good opinion about Alexandra.
