Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?
So Sarah Bletchley said with her baby in her arms, tipping her foot up and down as though she were by her own fender in Pimlico, but keeping her eyes on the Mall, while Emily Coates ranged over the Palace windows and thought of the housemaids, the innumerable housemaids, the bedrooms, the innumerable bedrooms.
tipping her foot up and down = shaking her foot up and down
Thanks for your efforts.
Maybe a bit less energetic than shaking, more like vertical waggling?
