Little old lady 2   Leave a comment

  At the swimming pool today there was a little old lady. Very respectable looking. Very neat. Buttoned up cardigan.  Skirt past her knees.  Vaguely Spanish or Italian, or at least carrying that aura. She was there with her grandchildren. Sitting at the side of a West London council pool, very primly watching over them. Over her shoes were blue plastic shoe covers for hygiene. But what was truly beautiful was that she was wearing shoes with tassels and had deliberately pulled out the tassels from the covers and neatly arranged them fanned out on top of the blue plastic. I hope I am like that when I get old.
