Auspicious Time

"Around the turn of the century was an auspicous time for me; and, with certain reservations, it was by no means an inauspicious time for my mother. She, after a pleasant interval of six relatively unencumbered years, had somewhat surprisingly found it necessary to get the old cot, the old pram, the old muslin-lined and beribboned basket, the Shetland shawl, long cambric robes, cashmere pelisse, heavily frilled bonnets and all the rest of the regulation kit out of mothballs to do renewed service."

Winifred Eastment, We weave as we go, Dawn Press, Wanstead 1972, p.15
