Adam - to save me looking it up remind me how we know when Susan's birthday is.
I agree there are back references to Christmas so it is clearly set in post-Christmas part of the school holidays.
As for the mumps I agree, I caught it in my late 20s from the young son of some friends who visited one Boxing Day - nobody else got it and the only 'contact' I had was sitting opposite him at the dinner table! Perhaps Nancy got it at school?
Despite all this, I still think of WH as a Christmas book and is still my favourite.
