It's time for me to be an aspiring writer again! This story came to mind when I saw this week's photo prompt from Sonya.
It was so funny! Daddy was mowing the lawn when suddenly there was a bang and the electricity went off. Earlier that day he’d laid a cable to his shed – he’s too mean to employ an electrician. It was obviously a bit too close to the surface and he must have chopped it with the mower. Anyway, he went to the fuse box, flicked the switch and as if by magic everything started working again.
You may remember me telling you about my parent's pet peacock. It’s called Fanny because of its tail. Later that day whilst enjoying its evening constitutional it must have trodden on the damaged cable because it light up like a Christmas decoration!
Fortunately apart from being a bit singed around the nether regions it was unharmed, otherwise it would have been on the festive menu instead of turkey this year!
P.S. It's been renamed Sparky!


  1. Hahaha! Sparky became a Christmas decoration! Cute story Rosey! I'm glad no peacock was harmed in the making of this story. :D

  2. Cute story. I loved the tone of it. Mean daddy and Sparky. :)

  3. Cute story and it sounded very real. Poor Fanny but it was lucky it was only singed. LOL Sparky.

  4. Funny and cute! A quick invention of a Christmas decoration just by being in the wrong place at the right time! Love the name ...Sparky.
