Are you clean???????

How often do you:


  • take a shower - once a day, sometimes two!!!


  • brush your teeth - Once a day, except when my mouth feels stinky at night


  • floss - never


  • wash your toilet - Once a week


  • wash your tub/shower - same as above


  • dust your furniture - when i pass by it and it looks dusty :D


  • Windex the windows - never


  • let your dirty dishes sit in the sink/on the counter for more than 1 day? - 36 hours is usually my limit LOL


  • Use a washer or hand wash your dishes? we don't have option of "washer" in Naija oh so it's always my hands


  • wear the same jeans over and over? hmmmmm quite often, so that it doesn't fade from constant washing LMAO


  • wear the same bra over and over? i usually try to change them after two days!!!


  • wash your car? only when my pants start getting dirty from dragging dust on the floor of the motor and when i can't open the door because dust has caked on the handles and i can't bear to touch it i.e when even I cannot bear the filth anymore!!!


  • clean the interior of the car? when i looks like a dustbin/garage


  • cut your toenails? at my monthly pedicures


  • wash your bed linen? weekly or bi-weekly(depends on how lazy i am that period)


  • use wet toilet paper (they make those now) instead of dry toilet paper? i use baby wipes now


  • vacuum? as often as necessary, this could be once weekly or once in two weeks


  • wash your fridge? It's still new so i haven't had to give it a wash per se, i only wipe spills and stains for now :)

change sponges/dishrags? when they've chopped i change them!!!


  • put your laundry away after washing them? the laundry usually sits in the basket for a few days before i put them away


  • take your garbage outdoors? daily or at most every two days


Do you:

dump trash out your car? nope. I'm an advocate for "Let's do it right". I'd rather have the trash in my car.

leave leaves or seeds lying around on your coffee table? i'm sorry i don't have a coffee table(thankfully LOL)

collect junk mail unintentionally? well..... i am a pack rat

This is the thing oh!!!

You remember that thing i said people now use to bath their pikins in the abroad????????

This is it

i never see this kain thing before.



Still trying to imagine how my mother's face will become contorted (Afro that means squeezed or kinda like a frown LOL :D ) when i give her to bath her grandchild LOL



As for my mum-in-law and the granny-in-law who will be coming to visit the baby and probably bathe him/her as well, that will be a good story to tell (i pray) LOL



Even my poor husband is being quite macho about it and pretending it's not a "big deal" so i don't call him a bush man from village LOL



However i still intend to buy those local bath sets, you know those green and blue ones sold all over Lagos that have bucket, soap case, potty and bath. i think some even have foam to wash the child? abi?


Just in case....



And to save even myself from disgrace of not knowing how to use "BABY BATHER" ROFL LMAO

Really running out of titles for this thing....

So i arrived work bright and early today

Well not actually early, but early considering that i was first to arrive on my floor

...... note that this was at about 8am and we resume work at 8.30am

But then can i blame them, half if not all of my colleagues were stuck in traffic.

I left home with my coat wearing driver at 6am.

The bugger came later than i told him too with his silly pair of glasses that he has taken to wearing these days- morning, afternoon and night.

At least he spared me the trauma of seeing that coat again today.

Two Danfo drivers helped me abuse him and the glasses this morning...

I was very happy!!!! LOL

I've been very energetic today...

So much hyperness in me today

Guess i'm just thankful not to be chained to a bed like i was last week.

Drugs and jabs just ain't my thing. I was popping like 10 tabs or more daily. Maybe it was better than having my poor wrists mutilated by those drips they give people.

A friend of mine wonders why the liquid can't be poured into a cup and served to patients at intervals. Abi???????

Some individual made the headline over the weekend and this morning sef. He actually dashed a "Sorcerer" N510million to do some juju for him. what an absolutely stupid thing to do.....

I didn't even realise juju business was so lucrative around here!!!! LOL

Got some baby stuff yesterday.... I was quite excited and barely slept all night dreaming about them, infact i also made a startling discovery about how people bath their children these days....

I will unfold this new wonder in the land of oyinbo people tomorrow(i pray) LOL

Be back soon i've gabbed enough for one morning!!

...............

No title for this post jare...

I'm still quite traumatised from sitting in traffic since 10minutes past six am that i left my house!!! Thankfully i wasn't driving but meeehhn even the sitting wasn't fun. I mean not even my driver's "coat" amused me like it did last week.

Don't know why the bugger wears a coat(actually it's a jacket as in suit jacket :D ) anyway, then he wears some silly body/muscle top and layers it with a chain. Does he think he's LL cool J or what?

Forgot to add that he wears white shoes as well LOL

This weekend was quite good. Managed to have my hubby indoors for most of it, save a brief trip to Ibadan so i had to sleep at my mum's. Which was ok, except that i had to watch my dog( yeah i left him at hers) eat paper!!!!!

I gave him suya and rice which he gulped up and next thing i saw he was chewing all the newspapers...

Still quite traumatised by that i tell you LOL

Hoping this week would be interesting and stress free. No health issues and stuff. Still recovering from the SEVEN drips i had two weeks back, my arm still hurts from the jab i took last week too!!

I dreamt that i had a baby girl and my husband took her to work!!!

Hmmm, one just keeps having weird dreams plus itchy boobs plus bump in the front all to have this pikin(s) sha...

Make i go drink Milo.....

I'm having such a slow morning though the clock seems to be moving fast sha

picking up the pieces 1

Picking up the pieces It may not completely make sense but I want to document this phase I passed through Sometimes life decides to hand...
