what happened next?



Ma on greenhouse roof

Ma on the greenhouse roof, repairing a piece of glass in an awkward place. Most imaginative (or accurate) paragraph in comments describing what happened next gets a prize :).

Leo and I are staying in Somerset for a few days whilst B is off doing various things in the North West.

So far, we are having fun.

  1. Well the obvious thing, especially given the angle of the ladder, is to suggest that she fell through it. However, I assume if she had you wouldn't have said "so far, we are having fun" so I'll go with...

    ...on realising that her ever-loving daughter has taken a photograph of her from a less-than-flattering angle, Ally's mum lets fly with with the most expletive filled invective that Ally has ever heard, causing her to laugh so hard that she retches. Again.

  3. Ma turns, places detergent-soaked arse on glass, and slides down to earth. Repeat for each section of glass and hose down - job done!

  4. Reaches for something, misses, then rolls off the edge of the roof into a flowerbed? My dad did that once. Soft landing, thankfully.

  5. This is the same Ma that some time ago ended up in a ditch when her vehicle crashed?

    The indestructible Ma?

    That is one scary angle for the ladder so..... a flying possum jumped out of the tall tree in the background (top left of the pic) wearing a tux and a cute grin, landed softly on the apex of the roof whilst a chorus of beat box bats lined on the branches gently hummed out the James Bond theme then the possum handed your Ma a box of Dairy Milk with a little note on it saying "All because the lady loves....." ?

  7. Ma lets out a really loud ripper of a fart, and all chaos ensues, including the ubiquitous panicking escaped chickens, ma falling off the greenhouse into the tree, and you almost dying laughing somehow.

    Wow, how awesome is she, for getting up on the greenhouse like that!! She's braver than I am.
