Just wanted to say thank you to everyone who responded to my earlier question about the age of an 'old woman', it really helped a lot. This is a really fantastic forum :)

(and in case any of you were wondering, I was looking at translations of the Mrs. Pepperpot stories. In the Norwegian original stories, I would assume her to be in her early fifties, whereas the constant use of 'old woman' to describe her in the English translations seemed to age her in my opinion.)

Thank you again
