Splendid jugs in the home


As you can see by the opulent surroundings of my smoking room
that I have all the modern conveniences (or “Mod-Cons” in the
trend setting, ultra up-to-date crowd parlance) that the modern
Edwardian requires. Ah yes, I see they have caught your eye.
Aren’t they simply stunning? Such a magnificent pair of enormous jugs,
I believe that Molly one of the downstairs servants (a maid nonetheless)
is attempting to reduce the ingress of dust by the use of her feather
duster contraption. Now I know what you are thinking, a member of the
fairer gender (though of the servant class) daring to sully the sanctity
of a gentleman’s smoking room, you are probably thinking,
“Well, it’s simply unheard of!”  I know that in most households,
this would normally result in a series of character building disciplinary
beatings, followed by the dismissal of the disloyal trespassing cur,
but I consider my self a modern employer with  very tolerant outlook
for our times. Though I have been known to meter out discipline when
the situation required it.
Lord and maid
But as you can see there is nothing finer than to partake in the appreciation
of the finer things that the British Empire provides, of which I of course refer
to getting my hands on as many glorious examples of splendid jugs as I can
muster before I shuffle off this mortal coil.
In answer to all the subsequent enquiries, I’m afraid Molly the maid is not in the market to change employers.
She has a very comfortable existence in her cupboard below the stairs and she is very happy with that.
I must confess I’m surprised at all the interest people must have very dusty homes out there.

    Well a splendid afternoon to you baby tutu, we are indeed looking for writers to contribute to our emporium of jugs.
    So get your quill ready and remember not to blot your copybook.
    We have been very busy lately hunting tigers and picnicking in the unspoilt vista of Africa in the Serengeti.
    Lady Forbes was unfortunately was carried away by a wild beast – no decorum it was during afternoon tea!
