Thanks for dropping by. Let's continue from where we stopped.
I've got 3 adorable daughters.
She will be six in August.
My 2nd is this quiet, bright, generous, content, sweet & peace loving girl. She's very courteous & lady like. Loves dresses & skirts, no trousers. Acts posh & speaks english like the Queen, lol. She never forgets her magic phrases 'please may I', 'please excuse me', 'pardon me', 'thank you'. She is 4yrs old.
My 3rd and last (obviously) is this 20mth old handful. She is cuddly, pleasant, playful, cheeky and oh, she's so beautiful, it sometimes gets me wondering if I actually birthed her..lol.
Watching them alone gets me knackered, let alone tending to their endless demands. I'm not complaining,....I'm grateful to God.
Family & Friends
FIL & I are fireworks...lol. He's a tough cookie, and me sef get skonskon. MIL is no more, she passed away when hubby was a toddler (sad).
My mum is simply the best. After her labour of love raising her 4 children (I'm the 1st with 3 younger brothers), she is yet to retire. She visits from Ibadan every now & again to see her grand kids and anytime she's around, I simply go on 'sabbatical'...she cheerfully does the cooking, housekeeping & child caring.
Father is in his late 60's, but you can't tell...guess I inherited this good genes from him. *wink*. He's a charismatic (attracts people to himself like magnet), down to earth & very simple man enjoying his simple life.
For friends, the few I had from way back kinda betrayed my trust, so I'm better off without them. I'm more into casual friendships with neighbours, colleagues & church members.
Of course, I've been recently blessed with these beautiful group of friends from blogs ville (in no particular order): Ibhade, Amazing Thots, Vyvyka, Sisi Yemmie, LadyNgo, Mena, Surprise, Myne, 9jafoodie, Dayor, omoba-adeteju, ayabaodusote, kitkat, Ginger, Lani, Wise Sage.... you guys rock & I love u. *Bear hugs*
Things are a bit twisted around here. I started work with a financial institution in 2001, about a year after my NYSC. I worked for 2yrs+, before jetting off to join hubby in England, and before you could say N-A-I-J-A, I started baby making! (and so could not do much work or further my studies). Came back about 3yrs ago & started building career from the scratch again. My colleagues from way back then are now 10yrs in banking experience....thinking about this gets me all depressed. In hindsight, I felt I should have stayed back & built on my career, no? Well, God had it all mapped out and I believe things turned out the way they did for a beautiful reason. God will make my crooked path straight again...Amen.
My swagger is about to give way o......God forbids!
No worries, I'll soon get my groove back, before some smelly tramp on stiletto heels & Brazilian head (hair) seduces hubby's 'kini'....tufiakwa!!! (luckily, I've got nothing to worry about, hubby is not that kind of man *wink*)
What I need is a trip to the spa, first for waxing...errr.. I'll go for laser hair removal (the hair on my legs is competing with a gorilla's), pedicure, manicure & some general body overhauling. I need to ditch this dreadlocks & visit the salon for a more sexy look. What else? Yeah, shopping.... a trip to Newyork, London & Paris (fashion capitals of the world) will take care of my wardrobe & make-up/skincare.
Hmmm.....I wish. If wishes were horses, me sef go ride. Abeg, leave me alone with my dreads o...Brazilian hair ko, Togolese head ni. Seriously though, I need some 'me' time and wished it were someting I could shop for somewhere. Like I said earlier, I had kids and my life changed forever...not complaining
That's it people...my life rigt now. In my journey so far, I've learnt some valuable lessons. I've learnt to put my trust in God alone. I've learnt to always believe in myself. I've learnt not to put total reliance on man...man/woman/people will change, human love may fizzle out, only God remains constant. He is unchangeable in the face of any given circumstance.
If you haven't yet, why not give your life to Jesus? Give it a shot, it sure is worth it & you'll never remain same. Thanks for taking out time to read.
