Leathery old scales

Dulcie doesn’t want to go on a trip.

“Oh, but I couldn’t possibly!” she says. “I don’t travel any more, you know. I haven’t had my hair done.”

But Anna insists that she should, and Dulcie has a “wonderful” time.

“You have taken the leathery old scales from my eyes,” Dulcie says.

I am going to do something that I haven’t done in years. I haven’t decided exactly what?!

Dulcie is one of the characters in Jane Gardam’s Old Filth trilogy.
