No problem Andy hopefully if anything comes to mind you could always join at a later stage.
As for the delightful nossers, sometimes they embrace for a punishment, (Cleopatra's) Also sometimes they too fall in love. or wish to 'save' a beautiful mind, or indeed find someone that is indeed useful to the clan. Nothing is always as it seems.
As for servants that would be great, I dont know if you get BBC, but recently they had a most interesting program on about servants of the era and it was most compelling I will have to watch it again. Remember there is a huge hierarchy within a household, and it too is strict, one might sometimes consider that the Buter and the housekeeper may sometimes appear to have as much power or more than their masters within their own little domain.
They really were often the ones that were in charge in their own domain. For example most have ALL of the keys to the house and dealt with a great deal of the finances and the staff beneath them. It was they that kept everything in order, hence that is how staff for the most were invisible.
