Inside the Mind of Isadora

Friday Fictioneers – Auntie Helga Visits


Honestly, this conversation is over.

Why, Miranda, why?

Because it’s my room and I’ll keep it whatever way I wish.

But Auntie Helga will be staying in your room while she visits.

And, your point?

Well, Auntie needs space to do her scrapbooking. You know how much she enjoys her hobby. She needs space.

If I tidy up, I’ll never find my stuff again. I’m a writer; we need our itty bits of paper, post-its, and books to complete our stories. Besides, Aunt Helga will only be here a week.

I guess you’re right. Okay, let’s watch a movie.

Author: Inside the Mind of Isadora

Intriguing, sensitive, mysterious, loving, artistic and crackling with excitement for life is a pretty good description of who I am. I just retired from the world of art where I sold my Artfully Designed Handmade Jewelry for 28 years; although, art will always be a part of who I am no matter what venue I choose to express it in.

  1. Stick to your guns, Miranda. Just keep an eagle eye out for your auntie. I suspect she may be capable of tossing all your bits and pieces in the trash to make room for all her own bits and pieces!

  2. Querida Isadora,

    I relate to Miranda. My room is my room. I don’t clean it for company. It is what it is. If you don’t like it, don’t enter. 😉 I’d say Auntie can live without her scrapbooking for a week. 😉 Bien escrito mi amiga.

    Shalom y abrazos,

    • Querida Rochelle,
      I believe everyone should have their own space and keep it in whatever way they choose. Hopefully, Auntie doesn’t try to rearrange anything. I think a guest room would help that, for sure. 😀 I’m glad you enjoyed this lil tid bit os a story, mi amiga.
      Gracias … Abrazos y Carino,
      Isadora 😎


  3. Most of my home I’m happy to share, but where I am sitting right now is mine and mine alone!

  5. Let’s hope Auntie Helga doesn’t do a spot of tidying up during her visit.


  6. Your little story made me look around, Isadora. Honestly, I would have to read the notes and then try to remember why I wrote them. Well done.


  7. Auntie Helga can do her scrapbooking at home. Miranda’s mom has a good solution.

  8. I didn’t realise how much I valued my own little space until I read this and thought of someone else occupying it.
