    I'm reading "One,. Two, Buckle My Shoe" by Agatha Christie.published in 1940.where a pageboy of an apparent suicide victim, in detailing the visitor to his employer's office says the following, "Then I nipped down to the kitchen to get my elevenses." So to nip is a very British way of saying to make a quick trip. But what does "elevenses" mean? I checked the American Heritage and Webster's and they have not under eleven for elevenses. My best guess is this is what an American would mean by "take my coffee break.". If the work say begins at 9, and lunch would take place at 1, then 11 would be the appropriate time for the morning break. It also could mean to get one's wages, although one would hardly go to the kitchen to get one's wages. I know this is most definitely a British usage, and probably very dated at that. But until I know for sure this will vex me.

    Best answer: both work but after is better for the context. she was on her way already (a short distance on the way, which is why mom had to call to her instead of simply remind).
