        drudgemaid says. Hi, my name is alice, or as my very strict Mistress has had me officially re-named, by deed poll, alice drudgemaid. I am living an existence very similar to our "heroine", Suzette Faggot, in enforced domestic servitude to a very strict and demanding younger Mistress, who has ordered me to post details of my inescapable slavery, filled with days of endless drudgery. Maids, Wives, Widows is a lively exploration of the everyday lives of women in early modern England, from The book uncovers details of how women filled their days, what they liked to eat and drink, what jobs they held, and how they raised their children/5(23).

"The Maids will be at the top of my list the next time I need a professional housecleaning. I was extremely pleased with the service I received. It was easy and efficient to set up the cleaning, the price was fair and up front, and the cleaning team did a top-notch job.

      The whole duty of a woman: or, an infallible guide to the fair sex. Containing, rules, directions, and observations, for their conduct and behaviour through all ages and circumstances of life, as virgins, wives, or widows. As for cleaning before a maid comes over, I think the vacuuming he cites is a bit exaggerated, though I understand why people clean up before the maid’s day: it’s because the maid’s job is.
