My Witty Mom


Touraco Bird


The Daily Prompt:

Today you can write about anything, in whatever genre or form, but your post must mention a dark night, your fridge, and tears (of joy or sadness; your call). Feel free to switch one ingredient if you have to (or revisit one from previous trio prompts).


It was a darkish night.  I was rummaging  through my fridge whilst talking to my mom on the phone.  I had just been to a parent/ teachers meeting that day and was telling my mother that the teacher said my littlest daughter is “insanely intelligent” (teachers words not mine.)

I was expecting my mom to say something complimentary and granny-ish…but alas, the words I heard through the phone said.  “I’m so glad one of my grandchildren takes after me.”

I was laughing so much, I had tears of joy pouring down my cheeks.

She is a witty one, that mum of mine.

This is a true story


Stress Buster…


Yes, you guessed it, I am one of those women who sit and crochet like a maniac in front of the TV.  Have to keep my hands busy and it is also a great stress buster :)

Remember last time I showed you some crocheting I mentioned that little daughter wanted a purple throw for her room, well this is the end result.  She likes it so that makes me happy.


In Retrospect.

The Daily Prompt:

Yesterday, you invented a new astrological sign. Today, write your own horoscope — for the past month (in other words, as if you’d written it October 1st).


Cosmic Kitty’s horoscope for the month of October.

You will spend a lot of time worrying, but yet, in your heart of hearts you know that everything will be alright.  You will also remember that Mercury is in retrograde for almost the whole month of October, and this does seem to affect you adversely at times.  When the month is over you will thank the Heavenly powers, the Universe and all that is good, for taking care of you through the month.

H1SThe Daily Prompt:

You’re tasked with creating a brand new astrological sign for the people born around your birthday — based solely on yourself. What would your new sign be, and how would you describe those who share it?


My custom sign, based on myself, would have to be a cat.

Description of his sign would be for people who are:

Aloof… yet warm when befriended with sincerity.


Peaceful natures.

Have reclusive moments.


Have a dislike of people who are drama queens, haughty or social snobs.

Loves harmony, and will purr like a kitty when treated right.

The characters in my mind…

oldroseEThe Daily Prompt:

Many of us had imaginary friends as young children. If your imaginary friend grew up alongside you, what would his/her/its life be like today?

(Didn’t have one? write about a non-imaginary friend you haven’t seen since childhood.)


You may find this quite silly, but my first imaginary friend was “Noddy.”    It will make sense when I tell you that I started having imaginary friends at a very young age.  With Noddy I was around five years old.  Noddy and I spent many hours driving around in his little red and yellow car – in my mind that is.  He also patiently also wiped away many a tear.

As I grew older I had various imaginary friends, ranging from the characters of the “Famous Five”,  The Secret Seven and many others.  There was also an excruciatingly funny and naughty little boy named “William.” When I was alone my mind and its occupants were my greatest friends.

As I grew older I realised how much I loved detective novels and so I became very good imaginary friends with Miss Marple and Hercule Poirot.

Over the years, I have had so many imaginary friends from the books I have read…so I can boast with having much more imaginary friends than real life ones.
