My mother amuses me. She is currently on the phone and although trying to smile sounds mildly threatening, and is the person who once said to me “You need to get fitter and have the 3 S’s: Strength, Stamina and Flexibility”. I don’t think she noticed the lack of the third ‘S’. Luckily she is also the type that laughed when I painted my hair white (by accident, with gloss paint) and who sometimes laughs while she is eating grated carrot and pieces explode into the Nutella. Like every mum, she is just weird enough to make life interesting but not too weird you want to avoid her (most of the time).
