After The Fall

If Miss Martha looks a little bit sombre in these photographs it is because she and her mummy have just broken the rope swing in the garden. Bert said it wasn't safe but Zoe said he probably meant it wasn't safe for me. Does she think I'm some sort of lardass? Martha was having a wonderful time sitting on Mummy's lap when suddenly the rope snapped and down they both came! That rope had only been round the beech tree branch for twenty something years. You just can't get quality materials any more.

It is not funny to all fall down when a mammy is supposed to be protecting you!

Wonderful expression!

It was a short fall but it shocked little Martha.

Bert will have to build her a better, safer swing.

Zoe said...

Little Martha has made a full recovery from the shock of it all and is now busy banging a plastic spoon and silicone pan handle together while singing a little song.

It took her mummy a little longer to get over it!

Martha's song goes something like this - a rah rar rah, a rah rar rah.

Lady Gaga fan by any chance?

Glad she's in good drumming form.
