Sunny Santa or Grumpy Grinch?

Which are you? The man on the left or the man on the right?

I'm so the man on the right, I might as well be the grinch who stole Christmas. Christmas brings out the sarcastic side of me and at the sound of a Christmas carol in November or October (for the overly enthusiastic.,, sometime in October a radio station played a Christmas carol while I was driving and that made me almost run my car off the road!) I roll my eyes; "So it begins..." LOL. 

Good morning guys! I hope you had a splendid weekend? I sure did. I'm thankful to God for journey mercies to the East and back. And also, my weekend ended in perfection; a short but sweet meet-up with three of my QC BFFs, who I don't get to see often enough *sad face*; Tinuola, Bukola & Adaeze! Congrats to Tinu the still-new mummy. I love these ladies!

So how did your weekend go? Does Christmas make you want to do a break-dance, sekem and shoki all at once, or does it make you roll your eyes because you can quite get what all the fuss is about?

(But I want to believe that this Christmas would be truly special and memorable for me).  


  1. Yep yep yep, Christmas is the only season that makes me forget my sorrows. Once the Hamattan weather *bites* my lips I just feel inner Joy, no matter the situation. A wonderful and Merry Christmas to you Thelma and darling TTBVs in advance. I pray you feel this Joy this time around. #GoodTidingsOfJoy. :D

  2. Sunny Santa all the way, whoops! I have a very good feeling about this Christmas, as in, belle is "sweeting" me....*dancing sekemzontoshoki*

  3. I would be the man on the left, I love christmas!

  4. I totally love Christmas

  5. I used to be the man on the right, but i am slowly becoming the left. I find myself wanting to decorate and wrap gifts. Maybe my 30s are making me more sentimental. Or its just old age.

  6. I love Christmas cos of the weather, smells so good. Thelma you ll ve a memorable Christmas this year u hear??

  7. This year just feels 'bleeh'! Saddest yr ever! Hoping for the best sha. Saw a Xmas decoration ydy sef & felt nauseous. God help me, Amen

  8. Hmmm. October small sef. My father used to play Christmas Carols from September till April/May when we finally threaten to destroy all his cds. Somehow, he hasn't started another round this year. We're slowly getting worried lol.

  9. With my present state of mind, I'm the man on the right but I know I'll switch soon...


  10. Lol at Oma. The man on the right.....

  11. Somewhere in between. Don't know what all the fuss is about

  12. Hahaha @T, u nearly ran your car off the road? Was it attempted suicide? Haba, Christmas is heaven to me, the carols are my favorite part of christmas, then the general peaceful feeling that comes with the season (even amidst the fear of BH in Kaduna here)

  13. Very indifferent!

  14. I totally luff xmas

  15. I love christmas its the only time I get to travel home n visit my parents. Whenever I feel the hamattan air I feel home sick. Can't wait to go eat my mums local genger soup. Mrsm

  16. I love Christmas! My Xmas tree is up already sef...

  17. Indifferent about all the fuss. Merry Christmas in advance Thelma.

  18. I would be the guy on the left, I just love Christmas..this year will be one kind, I am at work all through the Christmas and New Year season. God dey.

  19. somewhere in between, I do love xmas but it just comes and well ... passes and at the end I find out I only gained weight.
    Happy xmas T and BV's in advance.

  20. I'm somewhere in between. My family doesn't make a fuss about Christmas so 25th of December is just another day. The only difference is we start chopping fried rice ingredients from like 7 am and since popsie is a pastor there's always an abundance of chicken, turkey and guinea fowl hampers, rice and plenty food stuff during the season. Besides that, Christmas is just another day, u wake up, u eat, watch TV, kido around a little and sleep.

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…


Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.

He was my coursemate, crush, then my boyfriend.... he was super
intelligent, smart, tall, dark and handsome. Believe me he got
swag, but he didn't seem to notice me. (I'm a nerd but a sassy one
if I say so myself).  So oneday I decided to take it to another level..
After listening to a song "IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TELL THEM THAT YOU
LOVE THEM and watching the season film of The Secret Life of
American Teenagers. ..when Amy Jeugerns mum told her "you are only
young once". LOL that part got me.
Hope you know what i mean?

Though I'm okay with chemistry class I approached him to coach me for
the Quiz that was coming up, we found out that we had this
great chemistry between us.. hehehe both the covalent and
electrovalent bonds....

So one thing led to another till one unusual Saturday. I invited
him to my house and he came. The guy got swag, he even came
with a packet of durex condom.
We talked for a while and and and and and and
See how you are serious dey read this story....!


A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…


I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested? Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on). 
BTW please Ejoeccome out come out, wherever you are!

Closed Chapter...

Hello everyone, yesterday a friend said to me, Thelma I love your blog, I've told so many people about your blog, I think you're a very good writer but I feel there's something you're not doing right"

This friend was the first person who won our beauty of the day contest back then in 2014. Then we had met just once through a mutual friend. I mentioned the blog to her and she became an instant reader. I wouldn't have exactly called her a friend then but yesterday as we sat down waiting for our Uber to come get us from Wal-Mart, she's definitely my friend and I knew she was coming from a good place when she said she had much higher expectations of my blog.

Me too.

But you see, in the last year or so, maybe even longer than that, I haven't felt much joy in blogging. It began to feel more and more of a laborious chore, one which I hardly reaped any fruits from.

I really love writing, I love sharing my life and my experiences with others and I've enjoy…
