3. Tip bum upwards

4. Rock backwards and forwards a few times

5. Get legs out from under self

6. (Optional) Fall flat on stomach

7. Get up onto toes and hands

8. Wonder what to do next

9. Put knee down

10. If other knee is not yet down, move toes of this leg forwards and inch gradually along. Grin maniacally

11. If other knee is down, repeat from (7) a few times

12. Pull knees up under self

13. Sit up facing in a different direction

14. Look a bit stunned

15. Repeat from (2)
