Model Answer:

We all have our own favourite persons who we like to spend our time with, regardless of our age, gender or types of relations. As far as I am concerned, I like to spend my time with my mother – the soft-hearted and caring lady who carried me for almost ten months in her womb, and who has raised me for almost 21 years to help me become a real lady, by enduring all kinds of physical and mental agony.

So, once again, it is my loving mother with whom I like to spend as much time as possible, despite the fact she can’t always make herself available for me since she remains fairly busy with her house works. But, when she does have little time to spare for me, we, together, do things like watching some funny TV shows or baking some new kinds of cakes with our own recipes. Sometimes, we also go to a super shop together, which also happens to be one of my favourite things to do during the weekends, to buy some fresh fruits and vegetables. Last, but not least, we also like to read health and beauty related articles in different newspapers and magazines whenever we get a chance.

By the way, we get to do these things mostly during the weekends and other holiday seasons because that’s when I don’t really have to worry about going to school or study-related tasks. And talking about my studies, she is so passionate about my education that she actually sits with me sometimes to see what I really study!

Now, if you ask me why I really like to spend my time with my dear mother, the answer is, she makes me feel very well-protected and well-appreciated even when I tend to make mistakes. I like to spend my time with her also because she teaches me a lot of things about the “realities” of life as if she has the answer for everything no matter how tough the life or situation gets.
