Difference (from prior major revision) (minor diff, author diff)

Changed: 3c3
Granny, who was a teacher, has lived in the same house in Middleton for thirty years. In her youth she was, so she says, "a bold, bad girl," and she still has a indomitable will and a dry wit, as well as an instinctive majestic dignity. She has a cat named Mintchoc, does not read much, is deeply superstitous, and teaches Polly to cook. She is inexplicably afraid of mice and other small animals, has bad attacks of sciatica, and often rests in the afternoon. When it rains, she carries a huge green and white umbrella. Her mother left her a lucky opal pendant, which she passes on to Polly. She loves treats and has a penchant for proverbs. She has two friends her own age, whom she calls Aches and Pains; but she takes their mother, old Mrs. Oaks, quite seriously.
