Medieval woes

"I should do no other work in the day but read my psalter, work in gold or silk, play tunes on my harp, checkmate someone at chess, or feed the hawk on my wrist" - Galeran de Bretagne.

This 13th century lady is complaining about her day here. It sounds pretty good to me. Maybe I'd swap that psalter for a slice of battenberg cake, but otherwise that's a pretty perfect way to pass the time.
