"I think that I would be ideal for the Country House, because of my personality and my love of history.
Being a lowly servant is going to take guts and a lot of hard work so to counteract that my being positive and cheerful will help. I am outgoing, presentable and respect authority - I would imagine that they are very useful points for any would-be downstairs staff."
"The other reason for me being ideal is the love of history that I have, in particular the 'Age of Elegance'. I feel that I should have been born in the past, and find it fascinating to think that people lived like that, it was only 85 years ago that my Nan would have being doing a very similar job."
"The chance for me to step back in time is now within reach..."
"At work, much of my time is spent listening to clients and getting on with any task given, I have also had to manage a small team of girls, ensuring that they are working well. Another job is to ensure that stocks and literature are constantly being replenished, again taking orders from my superiors is a daily occurrence."
"Entertaining friends and seeing that they are well fed and having a good evening is important to me, I have my fair share of cleaning such as washing, ironing and general housework - I'm NOT frightened of hard work and a bit of elbow grease!"
"Knowledge, self-satisfaction, just the chance to taste Edwardian society first hand."
"I think that it would make us appreciate today's luxuries and teach us perhaps long forgotten etiquette."
"Its important for us not to forget where we came from and how we evolved, so for me to go back in time to the Country House would give me every experience I could wish for, good or bad."
"My friends say I'm bonkers because my favourite hobbies are visiting Stately Homes. I am a member of the National Trust and English Heritage, so most of my time is spent driving around the country on days out."
"Other hobbies I have are building and completing my dolls house and watching my favourite football team. When I'm not doing that I'm watching Time Team, Meet the Ancestors, The 1900 House etc."
