Ermmm, I wonder if she is a good ‘ratter’?
Only if they're cooked and served in expensive pouches, I expect.
What herbs might they be cooked in? Perhaps adding some deadly nightside
fungi would enhance the flavour?
Freddie and Nolly might know where to find those ...
(Actually, I think deadly nightshade - belladonna - isn't a fungus, but
a sprig of red berries. [It's called belladonna because - I think it's a
muscle relaxant - taken in _small_ quantities it makes the pupils
dilate, which is in some circles thought to make ladies attractive.])

... and how lovely, warm, funny, and just all-round Victoria Woodish she was.
