2013.....

So thankful to be able to type this in good health and so on....

2012 was quite rocky, i pray 2013 is easier on me and my peeps, even you too ;)

The boys are fine, not sure they realise the year is being changed in a few hours :D

so many expectations and plans on mind.

Spiritual and physical fitness is one.

a career change is another!!!

I'm just here to wish everyone a happy new year really....

We'll be here by God's grace in the new year *hugs*

Tis the season to be jolly!!!

Ho ho ho!
That came out quite silly didn't it?
Thankful to be alive and well this period as well as my family members!
It's been a challenge of a year but I am still thankful nevertheless.
My mr showed up with and iPad 2 for me ;)  I was forced to forgive all his sins of the year LOL. Blogging should henceforth be easier and thus more frequent.
So far no other Christmas presents ;)
I'm looking forward to tHe new year and hoping for some freshness in many areas of my life especially the bits that have stagnated due to one reason or the other.
This post is apparently just a medley of my thoughts, I like the sound of that- medley of thoughts :D
Used one yeye mascara yesterday and the thing just want wrong I was in tears for most of the day. I imagine my colleagues thought I was a victim of domestic violence or something because
Even my dressing that yesterday get as e be. Had like 4 different colors on me plus my hair was standing and then the tears LOL thank God I can laugh …

Life and lemonades....

Been a rough week here.

A dear friend lost her little boy and i have been most shocked and heart broken since i heard the news.

This is one lemon from life that certainly cant be turned into lemonades.

It was most unexpected!!!

He was barely 2years old...

We just must accept it as the will of the Almighty. I pray God restores all that has been lost to my dear friend and her husband.

Wish this banging headache would just go away, must be the lack of sleep!!!!

Still in shock as i type here....

i also find the grieving process here in Naija quite an ardous one. Everyone has an idea/opinion/thought on how a bereaved person should grieve. Some say cry some say dont. It adds to the stress of the bereaved in my opinion and at such times people should be left to express their grief in any manner they so please.

May we never experience such a loss ever again(Amen)

I wish like a bad dream it'll all go away. I guess this is part of what being an adult is all about. one just isnt shi…

Re: 1st blog challenge

The prayer now is that i get to follow it religiously.LOL I am also looking to make adjustments to it every quarter( for variety's sakes) i'd have put it up but i'm not using the same computer i worked it on to type this post. Maybe later The challenge for the coming week is cleaning *sighs*

Cry cry matters

Today was one of those days….
I haven’t had one where the issues piled on so much and released themselves via water in a while.
So I was on my way to work when a team member called, I knew something was wrongeven though he said the boss just wanted to know where I was.
Then the second team member called. Good fellow the 2nd guy is…
He told me what had happened.
Story is we have a really difficult customer/account which I unfortunately am saddled with managing. The lady is really brash in her behaviour and more appalling is the deference ‘everyone’ here makes to her because the account is somewhat valuable.
One or two of the randoms she’s extended to me include :
Droppingcalls on me
Talking in a condescending manner
Keeping me waiting (read: STANDING) while in her office to pick up/deliver documents.
Etc
Once or twice I have reacted, like I once called her back and asked her never to drop a call on me and I also once asked her to stop chattering at my expense and give me the documents I was …

Life and living..... again

So a few Saturdays back i attended my first PTA meeting.

*claps and drum rolls* LOL Don't mind me. Though geninuely i was glad and felt very blessed that God honored me enough to make me amongst "those" that can attend PTA meetings. It's important to be grateful for every thing no matter how seemingly trivial it may be.

So sha i attended the meeting, i was infact the 1st to arrive. Nigerians will sha always be late *rolls eyes*. The meeting went well, good contributions from parents and some level of pleasantness in the air and so on. However there was this one parent who made me wanna walk across to her and shake her body plus tell her to stop being silly.

The yeye woman got up and started going on and on about loving the school etc. Then she said she encouraged the school to employ people who geninuely loved children(no probs with that on one hand but did she think any school sets out to employ people who dont love kids?) . The point that got me irritated was th…

Life and living

Long time no see bloggie
I should learn to blog on my BB it’ll be faster and easier to update and so on(I’m sure I’ve said this before LOL)
I’ve been ok, trudging along actually but I’m absolutely grateful for life and good health
Ayobami is currently next to me yelling/jumping up shouting “I want cartoons” my Mr TLash is hitting me with the remote control and saying sorry to his crying older brother. Maybe I should just ask him to face the wall and have some peace and quiet?
Its been an interesting past 2 days for me. Ive had three consecutive run ins with the law. The 1st was at CMS, I was so lost in thought, everyone else had stopped for the red light and yours truly kept driving on. Some official in cream and brown uniform appeared waving his arms up and down. I sha stopped and said in my best fone “oh sorry sir I didn’t realise bla bla bla”. Story the man jumped into the car and started threatening me with a N45,000 fine. I didn’t even know what arm of Fashola’s govt he was working f…

Answer the question…..

LOL Na wa…

 I have mentioned before that I live in a "yard" and some guy just recently moved in. I won't ordinarily have paid him any attention except that I find this absolutely amazing….

 Nothing wrong abi? Please help me work out how he would open the burglar proof bar(s) when he's inside his apartment!!!

So I was in the bank the other day and I happened to peep at a feedback form someone had filled and left on the counter…I found it funny… See the form below

If you cant see it clearly…

The 1st question says "what is your opinion of the bank?"
Response "it's a good bank and it's faster"

Next question is "how can we serve you better?"
Response "just that for you to be MORE faster"
Don't know why I found it so funny….
Today is a good day nice and cool(coldish actually) weather even though I spent close to three hours getting to work!!! This 3rd mainland repairs will cause something I tell you!!


Going for a meeting…

Random meme

Dont know why my nails are in such a nasty state... short and cuticles sticking out everywhere ***covers face in embarassment***. i wonder how ladies manage to constantly look together/on point ALL THE TIME. From head to toe. My state of chaos has somewhat increased since i married and had children in quick succession....

But then i have seen some mums of toddlers look on point!



I saw this lady the other day at the hospital in Lagos wearing snow boots abi isnt that what these things are called?


I suspect she was just coming in from alaska...... mcheew

On another random note, i still dont have a seat in the office. I cant wait for the three months to elapse and see the kind of seating it takes 3 whole months to provide *rolls eyes*

Yesterday was my 4th year wedding anniversary... i wish i could say its been bliss all through.... Hopefully with time it'll get better.

The boys are doing fine.  We are at the Q&A stage with my dear Ayobami and the questions are indeed endless...…

hmmmmm

Instead of reading everyone else's UPDATED blog.... shouldn't i be updating mine :D

Life sha…..

What a week its been in fluffy's life…
I lost a "close" relation and have thus been further reminded that indeed death is the end of all things.
The circumstances were unfortunate and there are so many "ifs" and what nots on how the loss could have been avoided…. Sometimes I also think and feel it could've been prevented, but since the Lord says "not a leaf falls to the ground without His knowledge" then I know surely Jehovah has the final say.
My dearly beloved relation didn't have children in the marriage; I have been informed that apparently there are three children outside wedlock. I feel bad and wonder how the surviving spouse is going to react when all this is revealed if found true!
Were I in such a situation I'm not sure I'd attend the funeral or receive any condolence visitors after being betrayed in such a manner….. but then "luckily" I am not in such a situation at this time….
I was once told of a man who passed …

Dear 9ja foodie….

Just in case you haven't notice I am not speaking to you….


Yep im vexing for you!!!


Why you may ask?


My people please help me judge this matter…


Jejely was I browsing 9ja foodie's website when I saw this link Oven Baked Scotch Egg | 9jafoodie | Modern African Cuisine

That's how I decided to try the thing oh….. after much trauma- translate unsuccessful attempt I ended up with "Squashed eggs" see for yourself





I was visibly traumatised LOL


To make matters worse I sent the picture to my friend who put it up with my name boldly written and tagged it Scotch eggs on her BB dp....

Then she sent me feedback from her contacts one person said the eggs were stubborn and another said she could see the scotch in the eggs LMAO


Not sure I will be "scotching" anything in the near future LMAO


N.B- 9ja foodie, you've figured out what to send me as peace offering or rather appeasement sacrifice haven't you? ;)


Happy weekend everyone!!!

Randoms once again

Hmmmm


What a day! One of our major accounts that we lost due to some silly errors just called us back, God really does give second chances to ALL!!! I'm happy it has certainly made me smile today.
I have been wondering all day why people in Lagos are still greeting each other Happy Easter, Se Easter has come and gone? Abi?
For the past few days I have had to take public buses and even in the few hours my experiences have been enough to blog about :D. This morning,for some reason, when the driver who was also doubling as conductor said I hadn't paid the correct fare I cleared my throat and in my best fone I said "I beg your pardon" **covers face in shame** then I remembered where I was…… silly me! The bus I entered this afternoon had a DVD for our viewing pleasure. He was playing a Pasuma type CD though I was traumatised not only by the music but because the driver kept wanting to watch as well. Thankfully a few mins after the thing stopped showing and the driver s…
i was going to blog about my inlaws today but its my husband's birthday so i decided otherwise....

I wish i could blog down all my thoughts immediately they come to me, it'll save me trying to remember what it was i wanted to blog about LOL

I wonder why we Yoruba people  say 'come and join me' when eating??!!! I've somehow started doing it too even though i don't understand why and don't really want whoever to join me in my meal anyway...

The boys are fine, driving me nuts as usual :D. Now they demand for songs as soon as we get in the car and because they don't know the titles the way they describe it is absolutely ridiculous... Like Ayobami would say 'mummy play "aha" for me and i know he means MI's "beef" or something like that... or he says play "hohohohoho" and it's the no 6 song on MI's CD LOL

In a bid to really shed weight  i am currently sipping some green tea.... i am not enjoying the process but th…

Travails of a Lagos 'ride hitcher'

This morning i remembered some experiences i had in the days i didnt have a car and had to hitch rides... People dey take person eye see sha.

one lady used to give me a  ride and park at her office while i walk to mine which was just a stonethrow away. I didnt mind at all.

However on this day we got to Falomo bridge or so and suddenly there was rainfall!!!! it was really sudden and in a matter of minutes people were wading through water up to their knees...

we arrived VI and the lady parked at her usual spot. I didnt want to be forward but i wondered how i will get to my office in the downpour na only one umbrella dey and of course she's the priority! she said if she took me to my office less than 2mins away someone else would take her parking spot. so i said maybe i should stay in the car till the rain stops and then lock up and she says 'her keys nko?'

my people i had no choice na so i enter the rain that day oh!!!!!!

I got into my office absolutely drenched..... twa…

I Wonder if it's still ok to say "happy new year?"

Happy new year anyway *rolls eyes*


It's only been 24 days and aaaaaalllllll sooooorrrrttts have already happened to me.


I better start it off light.


So the other day, Ayobami opened my drawers (chest of drawers if you may). He pulled out my pink g-strings. As colour was spreading all over my face, he said "Mummy what's this?"


For a few seconds i pondered what to answer, seeing i was tongue tied, he offered an answer "oh its for covering your breast?" i didnt know what else to say so i said yes...


Then he says 'ok lemme wear it then' and he proceeded to place it on his head in an attempt to wear it.


I couldnt take it anymore i grabbed my thing and rushed out of the room


I really need to get my own accomodation in that house.....


On a totally unrelated level, men will always be men sha...

Yesterday i went to buy jollof rice at some place- buka type setting.


Some pretty chick was standing nearby with her friend. Some man was eating at a nearby table...

He says …
