Ramblings of an idle mind.

Yep... idle even though today is Monday!


I've just stumbled on the blogspot of someone i kinda knew(from afar) as a toddler. Damn i am quite old. I wonder if it's ok for me to still be blogging sef, a number of people i started this blogging race with all seemed to have fizzled out or is it moved onto other stuff?

Nah... i'll stay i kinda enjoy putting my thoughts out there for whoever to read and enjoy.. At least i hope some people enjoy reading it LOL

Is putting up office gist on a personal blog gossip? Just got some random gist that i wanna spill but don't want to be offensive.... The summary is that we had a cleaning assistant turned clerk here some years back. She got pregnant, said she was married but there was no ceremony per se! She resigned suddenly on grounds of needing extra maternity leave and not having anyone to care for baby etc etc. Imagine my shock when i recently found out that father of baby is actually one of the managers here!!!! He's single though. Now he shows up today to say he's married. Then i heard it's this same lady he has married..... Of course he's probably too embarrassed to admit she's his wife now. He didn't invite anyone to the ceremony or whatever it was they did to symbolize the union. I wonder for how long he can keep up the charade????????? Wont he ever put a pic of her? Wont anyone ever visit him at home?

Anyway na thier palaver....

The things that men do........

I looked* at myself on Sunday and wondered what has become of me. I barely recognise myself anymore. Marriage, its attendant challenges, motherhood, losing a job and taking a lesser* type has completely subsumed me over the past few years.

I'd like to restart/reset/revamp myself. Is this possible? For a start i'm redoing my living area. Over the next few weeks i'm getting the house repainted and redecorated etc etc. I hope to put up pics. Infact today i better take some pics to use as the before* pics and then i'd take after when the work is done.

I hope by penning it down i'd follow through on my new resolve/committments.

Gotta go Ciao XOXO

Randoms....


Yesterday morning at about 6am, I overheard my boys arguing.. the smaller individual who's four said that girls dont have peepees. The older individual who's 5 going 6 insisted that of course they have, i was in a dilemma do I butt in and end up late at work or i just leave them to come to their own conclusions LOL... I ran off to my office quietly, i mean it was only 6 am in the morning :D

So the gentleman and lady seated across my table are dating! They're colleagues.... we all are.

They are quite matured anyway, the lady especially! I've never seen them share a joke talk less of any minute PDA...  where it me, i'm sure we would have long been sacked LOL.

I will probably keep shouting "honey" across the office all day.

People who do office love try sha.... i've only been guilty* once. Infact that period, it was only the thought of seeing my lover that brought me to work daily LOL. we would chat via messenger all day. Not sure we both got meaningful work done...

*sighs*

My MIL is visiting for a few months. Been walking on eggshells since..... Why can't we all just get along? *rolls eyes* . I hope my daughters in law will speak well of me when the time comes. I certainly don't intend to be a pain in anyone's butt.

Lost some weight over the past two months, 5kg to be precise..

I've still got about 20kg to go. Hopefully it'll all magically drop off before the end of the year. I'm hoping to incorporate exercise into my lifestyle for good. For now progress has been nil in that area!

I've rambled enough, will be back *winks*

Lilies of the valley

So i got duped a few days back!!!!

In traffic for that matter.... i should have known better abi?

What happened was i saw a man hawking plants....

I like plants you see, so i called him and said what's the name. He said 'madam na Lily'

I suspect he used juju on me , because even though i am not an expert an plants.... It couldn't have been lilies being sold in traffic.

He said N500 each, i said N200??????????? He said ah no oh say na N300 last...

Then he said 'one madam just buy two from me now, she price am the day before as she see am today she just run quick by am'

i hurriedly said bring one bring one....

then he says no change, take 2 for N500

Your truly jumped at the offer....

Got home to replant and i was "lillied" LOL

The damn plans didn't even have roots, talk less of being lilies for real.

 The 419 of a hawker just plucked them off some plant/flower branches wrapped them with soil and was hawking to people like me who just want to buy lilies for N250 :D

I'm still looking for that man, na God go save am if i see am again mcheewww

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...
