100 word assignment – WEEK 9 (part 1)

<its slightly long, but I think I've distilled it as much as I can>

UPSTAIRS, DOWNSTAIRS
It woz 'alf pas' four but it felt like I'd bin servin' cake awl day!

inside. Course, I 'ad to 'old it proper like or i'd 'av spilt it
all over the bat.

"Colonel Cunninghams' eldest is a far better match.

By the look on 'er face, I knew right well wot Lady Mary
thought o' that!
