Writespiration – is a great challenge from writer and blogger Sacha Black. The challenge is to write something using the weekly theme in just 52 words…. EXACTLY 52 words, no more, no less. It’s harder than it seems, feel free to have a go yourself if you doubt me!
This week the topic is to write an Advert for your Mother.
I’m not sure if we’re selling our mothers, auctioning them off or renting them out but it’s a bit tricky because I’m actually visiting my mother at the moment and she reads my blog! I haven’t told her about this one so it might come as a surprise!
Have I got a deal for you!!
One slightly aged (aged to perfection) mother of 3, grandmother to 23, wife of one. Fit, vibrant, stylish, caring mother. Good sense of humour, loves a chat and a cup of tea. Has a Fitbit, Pebblewatch, iPhone, iPad, kindle and knows how to use them! Into knitting, crochet, excellent homemaker. Rarely idle.
Just for fun I asked my daughters what they would put in an advert for me – here are their words (there’s only a few more than 52 words):
Would you like someone who:
Laughs at jokes before they tell them
Snorts when they laugh and then laughs more
Never swears (well rarely)
Hardworking but not overly ambitious (no need to worry she’s going to move on quickly)
Loyal, dedicated (with the same man since she was 16)
Generous except when sharing food
Entertaining, often at own expense
Is like a hummingbird on speed
Willing to negotiate on cost (trying to get ahead in our house deposits because our parents are more focused on travelling and their own enjoyment than funding their children’s house deposits. 🙂
Just a bit of fun. I know they love me! 🙂
I look forward to seeing how others have interpreted this one. I’d love to know what you think!
