I'll do it but only if there is a mad lady in the attic and your husband looks like Mr Rochester when Timothy Dalton played him.

GloriaMumble Wed 22-Aug-07 13:34:52

mmm Timothy Dalton... Mr Rochester.... mmmm.

THAT series (or was it a one off?) was worth the licence fee

Your ladyship, my i submit myself for consideration, for i feel i may fit your requirements almost exactly.

With regard to latin and Embrodery, you will find that in my attention to Latin declesions of all kind and in fact declined very little in the employ of my last master. With regard to embrodery, my fingers are well used to many pricks as I have toiled both night and day to relieve both my mistress and master in the duties of this nature.

£7 a year, a corner of a small garret for my bed and a new bodice should mine become ripped would be all that i require.

yours most humbly,

I'll pay you <searches purse> £46.79 if you have lunch with me.

For the kind attention of Mistress Sobernow,

I am immediately available, having recently graduated from Lowood Institute for Unwanted Cousins.

I will take on your twins, but on the condition that you are confined to the attic forthwith, the better for me to have a proper crack at your husband.

That annoying ringleted bastard Adele will have to go too btw

MissJaneEyre Wed 22-Aug-07 13:53:44

I should have added that as my practical assignment in my Care of the Vulnerable Child at Lowood, I let my best friend Helen go into a terminal decline. So best not let the twins quote too much Samuel Butler at me, just in case.

sadly, in these corrupt and cruel times, fucking jobs are the best a poor but genteel young woman may expect. I believe Mr Sobernow, a man of most disreputable character by all accounts, is a provider of many fucking jobs in these parts.

Cali - I'm afraid I've got that one covered see here

I am willing to offer my services in the field of governess recruitment. I have no small experience having bored the corset off my own governess before palming her off on to an old family friend.

I feel I need to stick up for Anne Bronte here who is clearly the governess queen.

Mrs Sobernow, I fear you may be quite Overcome by the Demands placed upon you. You do not seem Yourself. Indeed, is that the Doctor with his trusty Straitjacket I see? For ladies with Appetites are most often best confined amid the Mad, I believe.
Oh, 'tis that your new Governess with the good doctor and looking so yearningly at Mr Sobernow! Alas.
