There was no way I was heading back into the house. Someone had to come out and find me.
Then they would apologise, cuddle me and promise to get me a large bowl of raspberry ice- cream.
Planting my tiny butt firmly on the garden steps, I waited for my apology just like the little girl in the movie.

Footsteps approaching. Yes victory is near.
“Mary … Mary move!
What?! Typical of my family.
“There’s a snake on the tree.”
Like a flash of lightning I returned to the house.
I’ll sulk on my bed next time, thank you.
