Morals and Apprentices

Coincidentally, on a morning when I would have preferred to dispatch an apprentice to scrape the frost off my workbench, today marks the passing of the Health and Morals of Apprentices Act 1802, whereafter one was expected to mollycoddle the unpromising urchins in one’s employ.

Still, the frost did provide some levity betimes as I observed our two terriers struggling to find traction whilst in hot pursuit of a partially-thawed possum.
