So just what is it exactly that I do?


Being as she is a renowned international superstar, many people have wondered exactly what it is that Mel of I Speak Melsh actually does for a job. To help us answer this question we asked some of those closest to her for their thoughts...

The Girl:

My Mum's job is a teacher. She works in a school. She feels happy about her job because it is teaching kids. She often has to teach me. I think her job is fantastic.

The Boy:

My Mum's job is a teacher. She works in a school. She feels happy about her job because it is interesting and short. She often has to wake up early. I think her job is satisfactory.


The Friend:

My friend's job is teacher. She works in a school. She feels enthusiastic about her job because it is her vocation. She often has to control the pupils. I think her job is difficult.


The Doctor:

My wife's job is teacher. She works in a maelstrom. She feels ambivalent about her job because it is exhausting. She often has to drink. I think her job is remunerative.


Mel herself:

My job is teaching and being a wife and mother. I work in a school, in my home, in my car, and anywhere else the kids need to be. I feel happy enough about my job because it is challenging but rewarding. I often have to drink coffee. I think my job is my vocation.

Many thanks to all our interviewees! We do feel though that we should point out that The Doctor had partaken of wine before we were able to interview him....


This is my post for the 30th day of Blogtoberfest - 30 days and still on track, nearly there now!

I'm impressed with the Blogtoberfest blogging. At the minute I'm having trouble keeping up with the reading - posting every day would defeat me lol

"She often has to drink" lol, nice answer, creates lovely images of the kiddies turning you to the bottle ;)

Melissa said...

I love the different perspectives you get with everyone's answers! Thanks for sharing.

Sarah C said...

I too love the different answers you wee given. And the Doctor says you have to drink LOL

Cheri said...

Leave it to the Doctor to come up with impressive answers (big words) and leave us all wondering just how much you do drink! ;)

Love this post, very clever and funny! x

Love it especially the final remark that The Doctor had to be bribed with a drink of wine lol

My blogging comrade Mel's job is teacher. She works in a foreign country. She feels communicative about her job because it is important to her. She often has to pay tax. I think her job is secure.

The differences in answers are funny and everyone but mum seems to forget the extra work!! Loved reading this post :)

Miriam said...

This is wonderful! Mummy loves to drink is just what my 6 year old wrote about me once!

Deb said...

I love this, Mel. Very clever with the fill-in-the-blanks and I love seeing how everyone answered differently. I LOL'ed when I read The Doctor's answer to "she often has to..." :o)

Lizzie said...

Ha, haaa... very good indeed! Interesting how only you got the job description completely right though...
The drink comments were hilarious!
I remember a child at school once, who wrote "my mummy likes wine for breakfast"; makes you wonder...

The Creative Beast said...

LOL!!! I love the Doctor's take on your job!!

Hmmm, I think "maelstrom" could apply to my job as well!! ;)

I will be giggling about this post well into tomorrow - thanks! =-)

A great journaling prompt! It would be fun to ask the same questions as your kids get older to compare.
