Using the hose was always lots of fun, and I was usually told off for drowning the plants, on this occasion however I casually asked....
'Mum, are you a flower?'
Engrossed in her painting and not really listening to the question she off-handedly replied she was, at which point I turned the hose on her to ensure all the flowers were watered!
Funnily enough she was less than impressed by suddenly being soaked and went MAD, asking what on earth I thought I was doing. As I backed up the garden I explained I'd asked a question and was just following her instructions!
Despite the soaking I was not in trouble, although I think Mum vowed from that day to always try and pay more attention to what I say!
