Josephine’s difficult childhood

Josephine had a very difficult childhood, moving a lot from one school
to another. Unfortunately, everywhere’s the same story: At first she
have the hardest time to integrate among others children. They keep
teasing her until she loose it and “integrate” them, forcing the family
to move rather quickly elsewhere.

***

Joséphine a eu une
enfance plutôt difficile, changeant d’école souvent. Hélas, à chaque
endroit c’est la même histoire : D’abord elle a du mal à s’intégrer, Les
autres enfants se moquant de son apparence. Elle le supporte jusqu’à ce
qu’elle  craque et “intègre” à sa manière ses camarades, forçant sa
famille à filer à l’anglaise de nouveau.

Just a Maid, Ep26 : Plates

Urrrkhfbluuuurg
– Well… I don’t know Josephine. Why indeed keep a collection of plate if you never use them?
Uiuiiiirkshblu?
– That’s doesn’t seems right, Madam won’t eat plates. Thus it’s not a reserve or a cellar. I think…
Ghbl?
– I think it’s art. Simply a display of beautiful craftsmanship.
Rhkkkk…blu?
– Then why keeping the room locked? Hum… to protect the guests away from the plate maybe. Madam Do care about the guests well being.

– Hum… Je ne sais pas, Joséphine. C’est curieux en effet de garder toutes ces assiettes sans jamais les utiliser.
Uiuiiiirkshblu?
– Non, je ne penses pas. Madame ne mange pas la vaisselle, ce n’est donc pas un garde manger.En fait, je penses…
Ghbl?
– Je pense que c’est de l’art, tout simplement. Une exquise collection d’oeuvres de maîtres artisans
Rhkkkk…blu?
– Pourquoi les garder sous clef ? Mais pour protéger les invités bien sur ? Madame prends soins des invités.

Just a maid, Ep.15 : Cooking

Josephine is good at cleaning. Too good, in fact. The floor has never been so free of dust, spots, twigs, stranded leaves, carpets and cats. Her constant oozing melted the varnishes all around and even her recognize that eating the laundry was a mistake.  

So now she’s in charge of cooking. She’s very fast at it, working with all of her hearths. The quality had dropped a little but service is quite remarkable.

It was only natural to grant her the position of chief since she ate the last cook.

– Awww, that’s not you fault Josepine ! Besides, no one’s fast as you for doing the dishes. You don’t even need soap!
Graaablbl!
