  • I would want to be a cook making stuff all day, covered in flour with huge bosoms! (Victorian cooks always seem to be rotund, that seems nice!) Perhaps a passel of little scullery boys playing around me.

    That's the way to do it....and while his back's turned I'll take you up on your offer to go and do a spot of poaching - better not venture onto that squire Julians land though 'cos I reckon he might get the peelers out after us.......now where's me shotgun :reddevil:

    Stop your day dreaming woman and get back to blacking that range.....I want me dinner on the table as soon as I'm in from the ploughing......:whistle:

  • I would love to be one of the independantly wealthy inventors, who sit all day inventing stuff, only independantly wealthy to allow me to do that, otherwise I wouldnt care about the money side of things, just the sitting all day inventing stuff bit really.
