Mum starts 2015 with a dramatic scene on the ledge of the bathroom window. It looks like three penguins are trying to jump from a great height. 'Yes', she says, 'and the others are begging them not to'. There often seems to be a sense of despair amongst the penguins in Mum's scenes, I suppose it's the result of living through long dark winter months. Mum is a relatively cheery soul, perhaps the penguins help her get things off her chest.
