A little trick I use to minimise "spewage" is to hold it in a napkin and lick the excess cream off after each bite

Look, you're just making this far too easy, I absolutely refuse to rise to the bait, I really do.

we are dewebbed ,all surfaces dusted and polished,the hearth swept the grate and the range  blacked and lit,all linen and drapes washed aired pressed and starched, Rugs beaten and cusions plumped,and china and glasses washed and polished, I think ladies that it is time to fill the fresh polished copper kettle with freshly drawn water and put the kettle to boil on the range and have a well earned pot of refreshing Tea. A job well done ladies even if I do say so myself !

*Enjoys a nice long shower & bath...(due to the Gentlemen's abolution suite is out of order, for some reason. somebody must have poured their failed experiment down the loo...yet again). Even though there is strong odour of cheap Gin, trying to fight for dominance against the floral smells.

"Fancy a good time"?

*Finishes bath, rinses it out, removes hair from both plugholes (the very important bit...chaps!), dries, dresses in night attire with spiffy long smoking coat & cap, topped off with my very own fluffy bunny slippers, picks up clothes etc takes them to Sophie the Night Maid to be cleaned, startched (where needed) & delivered to my rooms (minus the towels, of course). Ambles to the lounge to have a xxl night cap, a smoke while reading a good book*

(My appologies if I've broken the last taboo... Embarrassed )

Oh...my old war wound? I got that at The Battle of Dorking. Very nasty affair that was, I can tell you.

The Ministry of Tea respectfully advises you to drink one cup of tea day...for that +5 Moral Fibre stat.

Daughter should be washing own garments, thus having to replace any communication devices that get destroyed. It's called Taking Responsibility Tongue

Excellant!

On a serious note, I would LOVE to be a maid. I see adverts in the back of The Lady for things like "young woman needed to clean 17th century mansion in the country. Room and food provided, as well as modest pay". So, let me get this straight, in exchange for cleaning your house, I get paid AND fed AND get to live in the mansion as well?Why the hell am I in retail?!

Maids are the bane of my life. You just get one in, fresh from the country, train them up , and very soon off they go gallivanting with the footman and or butler. Very distressing.

I did have one though, who came to me ready trained from an establishment in town. I was slightly un-nerved by her uniform, but the tales sho told of 'Ladies' and their 'Gentlemen ' callers did brighten up a winters afternoon. She also sliped the odd gin into the tea pot.

Darkshines, If you do wish to enter service, I wish you all the best and would happilly give you a referance, as you did leave your cell very clean and tidy when I let you out of the Asylum.

Yours,
Lady Elsie.
