In this one, I try to film a grasshopper – or more accurately a bush cricket – which has latched itself onto my son’s head. George was 3 years old at that time, and we used to keep a pool going out on the terrace in the summer.
While chasing him aroound on his little buggy what I fail to notice is that he has removed the TV remote control. Irina is looking for it and comes to retrieve it but just after he’s thrown it in the pool! We took the batteries out and dried it off and got it working again afterwards.
