A well written family life story, maybe true for most of us. You saved the best part for the end but why do we chuckle even if we see ourselves in it?

I liked the family activities as described. This added strength to the well being of Mum.
Now I know I'm not really supposed to comment on my own story, but I just wanted to say that the title should have been 'My Mother's Trickery'.Leaving the apostrophe and s out changed its meaning so it didn't fit the story. That's what comes of rushing and not checking things properly! Lesson learnt! Also, this is a true story but with changed names.
