In this Miss Marple experience, I have noticed a few times when my life and Miss Marple’s fictional life have shared experiences. In The Mirror Cracked, which I finished re-reading just days ago, Miss Marple has a fall. I had a fall also – on a frosty step at my door. Thank Heavens no serious injuries were sustained (in both cases).
One must consider carefully the steps (pun intended) to be taken to keep oneself upright during this holiday season. Now is the time for inspecting, cleaning, and waterproofing outdoor footwear. Make a habit of wearing warm indoor house slippers with rubber tread to prevent indoor falls.
