Ray of hope

I've just been in an unexpected turn of events moved to a new job role. No increase in salary per se, but it's a senior role and i'm certainly looking forward to it. At least management will be compelled now to buy me a laptop!!! Today i saw a show of bigmanism..... not in a rude or arrogant way though! in fact i was rather impressed. what happened was some lady ran into a randomly parked car and as is typical there was the usual brouhaha with onlookers 'assessing' the situation and being the judge and jury all at the same time. Anyway some big man drove up. Happened to be the boss of the 'hitter'. calmly told the 'hitted' that he was sorry, handed him his card and said please let's have an estimate of the cost and we'll take it from there.... i was tripped. that's the simple logic that many people done follow in these scenarios. People prefer to shout and be abusive and many times leave the matter unresolved!!!!!! Nigeria and it's…

Friday tins#

My first born son has just turned five.... yep the big 5 :D i remember the day i had him just like yesterday. To God be all the glory. we didn't get to have the big bash i had initially hoped we would have but we gathered 10 or so random friends and neighbours and ate a lot of food, shared party packs and danced to good music. All in the parlor LOL Anyways i'm currently taking stock of this year and trying to see what areas need improvement in the new year. God help somebody jare, self development isn't easy. Planning also to get a masters degree in the new year, been long outstanding! I have also decided to do some re-modeling on the apartment. Even small changes im sure would help, i had completely allowed the place become run down. if anyone can refer me to sites for ideas i'd be most glad. Blogsphere seems to much more quieter these days. I miss* the fights.... it did keep the place agog with posts and comments and at least plenty of activity! wonder what the …

Market tins#

*sighs* I wrote my list for the market a few hours ago and i've been filled with trepidation at the thought of going. All that talk talk just drives me nuts. 'how mush* is tomatoes my customer?' last last abeg? ah haba but i bought last week and it was XYZ.... then the trader will rattle on and on about there being no tomatoes in Bauchi and thus the hike.... Then to buy the yams nko? talk less of meat.... those ones are just a dramatic lot, with them lifting the meat with both hands like its a cow and them going on and on and on.....n It's easier to shop at asda or tesco jare. don't know why the cant set up in Nigeria sef and be cheap too LOL Let me go abeg the earlier i start the haggling the berra!!!! Person go still reach house and scrape saki plus pluck ewedu *bigger sighs*

This goodheartedness sef!!!!!!

so yesterday I was fulfilling my one good deed for the day when I offered someone a ride. I knew her from way back she was my senior in secondary school. Ordinarily i'd have driven off and pretended* not to see her but our eyes met and I felt obligated. She got in and said, I cant remember you though your face looks familiar. I said you were my senior in secondary school and we met when you moved into this neighbourhood years back and even showed me your house at the time. she said oooohhhh.... Not sure she still remembered me. she then said 'hey all my mates have bought cars and i'm keeping all my money in the stock exchange' so I smiled and responded with nothing. Then she next asked the usual where do you work etc to which I responded vaguely and next thing she says is do you earn a lot? is your salary 1million naira? I kuku said yes but the way she exclaimed I quickly retorted saying not every month oh I meant per annum. at this point I wished s…

Seniority matters.......

So I find that my dearest 1st born child who's just 5 years old has suddenly started to send his brother on errands *covers face*. The 'poor submissive' younger brother is only three and doesn't seem to mind running these errands. The errands include getting him water, fetching toys, etc and he says please (sometimes). Now I'm wondering do I wade into this matter or just leave them both? After all I send my younger siblings around even till now LOL. I wont want to undermine my no 1's authority as senior is the reason why I haven't exactly told him to please stop harassing my baby.... Advice needed abeg LOL I'm on a 9 day detox diet... it's only half of day one and im already feeling you know....... hungry. I just must keep up with this weight loss abeg, this constant spilling out of clothes don do.... I had my nails done over the weekend, painted them electric blue ;)yours truly is on fire, next week na green I go paint :D random thoughts as…

Crisis at work

So on Friday I turned to my left and there was my manager bent over a table signing a document. As if it wasn't bad enough that I had his buttocks right in my face. There was a small rip/tear/hole in his trossis. In the anus region to be precise. I buzzed my best friend she usually has good advice for me. I shared the dilemma with her, she then advised that to aid my promotion and boost my appraisal scores I should tell him. And so........

Issues of life?

Working in a small organization exposes you to such a high level of politicking that its almost sickening on some days. It's concerns me even more when people are at the apex of thier careers and still demonstrate a complete lack of integrity, as well as divide and rule technique amongst staff. It's disgusting to me and unfortunately I have found myself in this system for a bit too long! So unhappy at my situation today! All is well It's part of the learning curve  My mind abi na heart has strayed in the past few weeks, I truly salute every one who has stayed faithful in thier relationships even when things are tough. This does not mean I have strayed oh!  I had an interesting discourse with some family members the other day. We were talking about an uncle of ours who's currently the chairman of a multinational. My maternal grandpa sent him to school. The co-discussants were of the opinion that the man should be more helpful towards family members especially folks like my …

Mind over matter???

Life does change when you're a mum.
We went for a birthday party today and I actually got up to try and get party packs for my boys. infant when Tlash didn't get a particular gift he wanted I actually went to ask the hostess if she had a spare. I'd never have imagined that I would do such. Mcheeewwww
The title of my post is called mind over matter and its been long over due if you ask me.i once read an article in Genevieve magazine with that title. The lady writer was the girlfriend ie mistress of a married man and she says one of the secrets of her successful relationship with him was this mind over matter principle. The morality of her/the relationship will be discussed in another forum or post. The said principle is the bone of contention here.
The way it works is "as the female in the/any relationship" one must chose which issues to battle out. So for example where her man doesn't come visiting as scheduled she usually pretends it doesn't matter an…

A seat finally!

I finally have been assigned one at work! I'm off to pop some champagne LOL. Now I wonder how long it'll take before I get a computer assigned :D I understand history has been taken off the curriculum for secondary schools. I suspect it's been a while but I wish it hadn't. Somehow I just feel the children are being short hanged and believe it or not, not all of our history in these parts have made it to the Internet! I hope the government revises the policy in the near future. I will have to come back and finish p this post

Bits and bobs ..... Part 2

So I've managed to take 30minutes walks like thrice per week for 2 weeks running now! Yay!!! I feel lighter and my body doesn't hurt as much as when I first started it. Next area to make further progress on is in my room, wardrobe has been de-cluttered but the rest of the house is still n bad shape *sighs* I don't even have an excuse. Meanwhile is it ok to put a tiny cactus plant in the toilet?on the WC or In a corner? Would colored pebbles be better? Though that's at the risk of my boys flushing the stones down the toilet LOL there's already a small a basket of pot pourri on the wc by the way. I think it's because I'm watching clean house that I'm having these thoughts today :D That was a few days ago,I'm continuing from where I paused..... I just left one very nice office gosh fine fine boys all over the place *sighs lustily* lol People do the strangest things! I took a cabucabu the other day from Ikeja to Alausa,it cost N70. I asked the driv…

Bits n bob

What a week last week was!
No baddies thankfully.
It was plagued with some really bad grammatical issues though. I tend to agree with the DG of NYSC who says most graduates can't read or write. I mean my colleague asked me to read the "mail tray below" . Can't blame anyone though the conditions for learning in many places are extremely bad. I also stumbled on some pictures of police in training college. *sighs* they really can't behave any better than they do if one considers the crappy training they receive. Saturday I spent cleaning,cleaning and still cleaning! I still didn't get my outstanding chores completed though, at a point I abandoned the project and went to lie down, i am still lying down. Brokeness too isn't helping my cause *sighs*
Ok that was two weeks ago! Thankfully all is still well here it's a bit slow drama wise *winks*
My boss has assured me I will be getting a a seat soon, fingers crossed people LOL
I emptied my wardrobe and de-cl…

Fluffycutething -solicitors and barristers

I just finished doing lawyer on the bus. A accident occurred between a lady's car and man's car. I had been watching and feeling bad because I knew that if she didn't get back up soon she would ended up being cheated because she is a woman One yeye man on the bus now said it's the woman's fault and that the men were just being soft/nice I was so irritated I started yelling you're just talking like that because its a woman involved The men were at fault can't you see their car was on the line and not on a proper lane. I was livid Didn't even realize I was yelling so much then I saw everyone was staring and so i quickly turned to "face my front" Now I'm embarrassed and feel like getting off at the next bus stop LOL

Mr and mrs matters

Loving to excesses?

These are just some of my random thoughts on a matter of love I recently stumbled on!

So mrs X is your regular joe! Dated her mr for a couple of years before settling with him and so on. Happy at least to an extent. Only snag is that mr isn't doing too well financially. So she's more or less breadwinner! Not an unusual story abi?

They decide to relocate for greener pastures and mr's finances pick up though she's still doing the heavy lifting. Then maybe because he has some "change" to spare he begins to womanize.mrs X is very worried, she is frantic infact. She's never seen her mr this way before. They start to quarrel over his late nights and odd phone calls.

One night it gets really bad and he hits her and hurts her in the process.she wants to leave him. I say well you can't leave  if  you aren't empowered ie you'll have to rent a place, n care for yourself at least until things are sorted. So be patient maybe things will even eventually be …
