subsequent eccentricities

'She wore green sandals, which fact in itself is enough to explain any of the subsequent eccentricities in her conduct. Green as a Cornish sea they were, flat as a Cornish beach at low tide, and decorated on the toes with a chaste cut out design.' Stella Gibbons A young man in rags from Christmas at Cold Comfort Farm


Oh to be walking along a Cornish beach with the sand between my toes today...

  1. I love that green sandals should be an indicator of eccentricity!
    Some beach walking would be perfect for today - the weather is glorious again.
