Just sitting here.....

.... humming Christmas carols to myself!!!!

Tis indeed the season to be jolly.

I'm kinda happy today...

I've just ordered a Christmas tree and I’m gonna buy "Ina Olorun" LOL for my son and myself today....

It's some Christmas thing/accessory/toy/… that you light up which burns for a few seconds before it fizzles out.... I think most people who grew up in Naija will have an idea of what I’m talking about :)

I've never known what the real name is!!!! LOL

Thank God knock out/bangers have been banned in Lagos. They’ve always petrified me!!!!

I think I will also attempt to bake cookies/brownies this Christmas…. Wish me luck people!!!

I don't know the real name too, but it is generally called "bisco light". I wonder where that came from.

Are you certain that banger/knockout is banned in Lagos? If yes, why are people still shooting the damn thing! I CAN'T STAND it at all!!

I bake but never tried cookies. What I'm gonna challenge myself is to ice my cake this year. Butter or sugar, that is the question.

Have a nice week dearie...

My in-law; abi you don change your mind?
Hope you are doing well, considering you r "in d family way".

Concerning 1 of your previous posts, I have found that praying to God about our worries helps. Pray and watch God handle things.
In the mean time, b bold and very courageous.

I know that "ina olorun". I actually can't hold it.

My regards to your boy.
