A Boot Boy and a Scullery Maid…

Having worked hard all day, Mr Grafton gathered us all together in the parlour to tell us who had been lucky enough to be appointed as scullery maid and boot boy. The new recruits were delighted but looked less sure of what they were letting themselves in for when they heard they would have to report for duty at 5.30am, 7 days a week and work until 10pm every day except for Sunday when they would be allowed to visit their parents in the afternoon as long as they had been good…
In the parlour there were lots of interesting and exciting objects to identify. Some were more familiar than others!
We returned to school happy but exhausted after our day of hard graft.
