Sara is our host for Sunday Writing Prompt

Welcome back to, Sunday Writing Prompt!

Seems a bit obscure, but the challenge for this week is to make us laugh using the prompt – THE NANNY


Nanny McPhee was one lovely movie about a nanny that was funny and magical. And so was Mrs Doubtfire!

My own experience with the nanny we had as kids wasn’t funny at all. In fact, all three of us siblings disliked her. She was too strict and a bit mean. Thankfully her time with us was short.

I never employed a nanny for my kids or a babysitter. I was both for them and then when I became a grandma, I was the nanny to my grandson as his mom was studying and working soon after his 2nd birthday. In fact, Nani is what we call our maternal grandmother in Urdu.

The fact that as a grandma I enjoyed my time with my grandson more because it is not full-time mothering. Less responsibility and more indulgence. He used to get his way more easily with me. More time to play or getting me too make his favorite treats. But then that’s what grandparents are for, if not for a little spoiling their grandkids?

I cannot think of anything funny to make you laugh, but one thing I am sure all of you who are grandparents or have spend time with grandparents, is that it’s the most beautiful thing in the world, after being parents. The joy is immense and makes to smile just to see their little faces.




Weekly Prompts – Weekend Challenge Old and New

Sue W is the host of this weekly challenge.

“I close my eyes to old ends and open my heart to new beginnings.” ~ Nick Frederickson

This week, the Weekend Challenge from partner GC and me is Old and New.

This week Gerry and I invite you to share your images of old and new, alternatively tell us about something old, something new.

As always the choice is yours and the challenge is flexible, so please interpret in any way you wish – Words, Pictures, Poetry or Rhyme. 

Please tag Weekly Prompts Weekend Challenge.



Old walks hand in hand with new

Strutting gait, a little bent over with age

Holding a small hand, it’s owner skipping on restless feet

The love and trust young ones have in those old hands

Is unquestionably and implicitly strong

While the old heart, overflowing with love and pride

Guides the little ones to the best of their wisdom




Blogging Insights – Reading Inspo

Tanya is the host of Blogging Insights


Does what you read influence or inspire what you write?


Reading does help to inspire my imagination. But since most of my reading these days is limited to reading posts on the blogs I follow, this is where I get my ideas sometimes as well.

A chance comment, the title of a post, or a topic under discussion all can inspire a post. I would include the prompts which are given by different bloggers in this category as well.

I love reading crime fiction but since I’m not a story writer, these books do not create inspiration for my posts. Though some of my very short stories, written in response to prompts can carry the flavor of one of my favorite writers.

There is another type of reading that also inspires my posts. Research articles that I read for information about health, diet or social issues can and are at times source of inspiration for my blog posts.

Thank you Tanya for this interesting question.



To my daughter

Reblog; First in this week in response to WDYS # 87. Enjoy this inspiring and beautiful message.

Reach out! Reach up!
Climb the highest height
Follow your dreams
Let hope give you wings
Be brave, be bold, be strong!

Look to a new day
A bright not a blue day
Stand straight, walk tall, be you
For you are unique, you burn so bright
You, the wonderful you!

Weekend Writing Prompt- Unknown

Sammi Cox is the host of Weekend Writing Prompt

Word Prompt



wk 214 unknown

We fear the unknown!

The familiar we take in our stride, even if it threatens us a bit because we have been through it before. As they say the devil we know is better than the devil we don’t.

But life would be boring if we always stuck to walking the same path.

Embrace the unknown for some adventure in your life!

Be alive, daring!

Sunday Poser # 33 – Father’s Day

Welcome back to week 32 of Sunday Poser.

Today is Father’s Day.

Fathers can be our heroes or they could teach us how not to be.

My question today is;

Is your father your hero or was he someone who taught you not to be like him?

I have mentioned in my previous posts that my father was the most wonderful man I’ve ever known. He was a very kindhearted man who was concerned about everyone around him. The qualities that I loved about him were his honesty, his humbleness, and his love for his family.

He was my hero in the truest sense of the word. He instilled many great values in his children and I try to follow in his footsteps.

Was your father your hero as well?

Please share your thoughts in the comments section.



One Minute Fiction Challenge- June 16

Cranny is hosting this challenge

She says; What’s the ”One Minute Fiction” challenge about?

Easy. Each week I’ll provide a prompt to inspire you to write a very short story. The idea is to manage to type your whole story in a minute or less. Of course, you can think about it before hitting the keyboard, and you can take all your time to edit it afterwards…

Just make sure to tag your story with #1MinFiction, and create a pingback to my week’s challenge post, so I can easily find it!

So, here is this week’s picture;


The game was easy as long as you don’t make a mistake. All the pins had to be placed precisely and in a certain order. Any wrong move could end in a disaster.

Tracy took it lightly and now, her family has no idea where she is.
