Now, if the poultry and waterfowl start their calls of alarm
and I am in the cottage
I have to leg it out of the back door, down the gravel path, around the wall
Down the lane
Past the corner
Over the field to the Ukrainian Village
Not a huge run, but one complicated and delayed by gates, paths and greenery
And so yesterday I had a flash of inspiration and devised a short cut from the cottage
to the field.
The short cut is a simple one
Metal chair against cottage wall
The idea was,
Hear distress calls
Drop tea towel
Leg it to emergency chair
Jump over wall
Run to field
Yeah that's what I thought.
Message to self,
Don't try this when you are nearly 52
And wearing crocs without the backs on.
The resulting fall over the wall on the dry run
looked a little like this
