I predict that in this chapter, Sapphire will be asked to do some jobs around the grand house : She probably won’t do it correctly and get shouted at. Just from looking at the first sentence in this chapter, I can infer that she has overslept. I think that ‘behind like a sheep’s tail’ means that they are running later then ever. I think that the word genuflected means worked. I know now that it means – from late. I have predicted correctly and Sapphire has not understood how to operate the kitchen range and has been sent off in disgrace. I think that if Sapphire really did ‘scrub her fingernails raw’ then Sarah (the head housemaid) should at least tell her that she has done a good job. I think that having to shape the butter into a rose for Mr Buchanan (Sapphire’s boss) is just ridiculous. I wonder why Bertie (the butcher’s boy) keeps calling Sapphire beautiful.
