Quotation of the Week

1st December

Mrs. Grantly experienced, as other people had, a curious kind of shock at finding that a woman who on the platform at Women’s Institute meetings or any other county activities was so competent and practical could be quite helpless and indeed almost foolish about private matters; and perhaps liked her all the better for it.

Angela Thirkell, Happy Return (1952)
