"I think I would be ideal as it is already as I think of myself. I run a large
farmhouse, and cook for a large family."
"My husband and I owned an English restaurant, where I had to control the
kitchen staff. I have the ability to be very strict when necessary, especially
in an 'Edwardian Upper Class' manner. I will, however, know my place with my mistress."
"When we sold our restaurant in 1990, my husband and I started a new business
called Living History for Schools. I take the role of the cook and advise the
children playing maids on their etiquette, the importance of respect for their
employers, the rules of the house, plus deportment and cleanliness at all times."
"I am used to long hours and seven days a week and am physically strong. I
also find it easy and interesting to mix and relate with people."
"I would like to gain from this experience a climax to my life. This would fulfil
all my dreams and to be able to record a way of life, that I have acted out for years,
in the correct environment, would be wonderful."
"I know I will be totally absorbed in this programme, with real people in
a real house. This is an opportunity I've waited for over many years."
