Glad To Be Back!

Yeah! It feels good to be blogging again… it’s been too long! Overwhelmed, Nyemoni, and everyone else who wondered what was up with me, thanks for the concern. I was on leave from work and we don’t have Internet connection (yet) at home. It’s funny how I have been away from work for about 6 weeks and I didn’t miss the office one bit. I may have missed a few of my colleagues… now I am sure I don’t want to continue working here. As soon as I finish this entry, I am going to talk to my boss and then […]

My Boys.

Hello all! Hope you’ve all had a nice weekend? Here in naija, we are still on holiday courtesy of the swearing in of our New President going on right now. One thing that does give me a little concern are my two boys. They are really adorable and sweet, but man they can be a handful. I mean, they can frustrate even the most patient person. I left them with my husband for two hours and when I got back he was like ” Baby, I no fit do nanny work; I was with these kids for two hours and […]

The Conclusion (Part 3)

Asma’u’s mouth hung open, she couldn’t believe what she was hearing. It just wasn’t possible. Asma’u— “sssir… my mum told me…” Tunde— “your mum lied. I don’t blame her you know, and that’s why I have always played along. I myself didn’t know until I meet you some years ago. One look at you and I knew you were not my child. You have met my children, haven’t you? They all have the characteristic Aina features, you on the other hand neither look like me or anyone in your mums family, look how fair you are?” He continued, “Look my […]

A Short Story (Part 2)

Aisha knew she couldn’t hide it from her dad, why bother? Any man with children would easily recognise the early signs of pregnancy. He had already started asking her questions about her constant tiredness and lack of appetite. For a fleeting moment she thought about an abortion, but quickly remembered how many times Tunde had taunted her over her “bareness” and decided she would carry the baby. She summoned courage to tell her father. Aisha– Baba I have something to tell you…it’s about …I think I …em em …Baba, I think I am pregnant. Baba– Alhamdu lilah! Allah be praised! […]

A Short Story.

It’s true that once you are a parent, you cease to be self centred (or at least try not to be). I know we all have our lives to live but one can’t help but think how our actions can affect the well being of our children. For example, I had this aunt in England who was seriously overweight and as a result of her health problems, she decided to have one child. Now that was one unhappy child who was always teased and bullied by her classmates over her mums weight (Mrs Somebody, you think naija kids are bad? Try […]

Okay… it’s me and my woes again. Have I told you guys about my job? Well, I work for a government establishment. I am a lawyer but, of course, they decided to put me in the policy department. What do I do? Well not much. I have some busy days, but usually I spend my working hours blogging (Thank God for blogger!) or when I can, I shuttle between my office and my tailoring shop. When I just started work, it was easy for me to be away from work and stay with my tailors, attending to clients. But after […]

Hello!

Lol! Still laughing at Omara’s comment about “all the intense people”… anyway, my husband attended a meeting with the intense people while in SA. I haven’t been well, so wasn’t able to post anything for a while. I had this gigantic boil sitting above my lip. It was grotesque, and I looked like one of the witches from Macbeth. It made half of my lip swell up and just as the swelling on my lip started going down, my left nostril started expanding, only to discover another boil there! Through my ordeal one thing that touched me was how my kids […]
