|Godfried Shalcken - Lady examining herself in a mirror|
Favourite Colour: Gold, or scarlet, or a combination of both, preferably red silkwith real gold braiding.
Favourite Animal: A throughbred horse, preferably pulling the brand new shiny carriage in which she is riding.
Favourite Number: 1661 – the year in which she hopes her life will be transformed for the better and she will finally cease to be a servant.
Favourite Non-alcoholic Drink: A hot posset of eggs and ale – yes she knows that is alcoholic, but in the climate of the Little Ice Age, she needs something warming.
Facebook or Twitter?: Ella is a bit lazy, so Twitter would be her thing, but she might use facebook to spy on social contacts who are further up the social ladder.
Her Passion: To leave her life of drudgery, to be treated as she feels she deserves – as a fine lady. Her dream is to wear soft kidskin slippers instead of heavy wooden clogs.
Giving or getting presents: Definitely getting.
Favorite Day: The day she is first offered a position in The Gilded Lily, a beauty parlour where women can buy salves, potions and unguents to improve their appearance.
Favorite Flowers: Lilies of course. But also partial to a red rose from the hand of an admirer.
Favourite Book: Ella can't read but she likes listening to tales told out loud, the more outrageous the better. And she likes to tell a few tales herself, particularly if it gets her out of trouble.
This game was passed to me by Jo-Ann Butler, and I am passing it on to Grace Elliott.
