Dear Madam, Who Does That On a Sunday Morning???

I was floating somewhere between sleep and consciousness, my mind ready to wake but my body willing it to drift back to sleep. I was almost succeeding at this when I heard the alert tone on my phone, it wasn't a text, it wasn't a ping, it wasn't whatsApp. If it was any of these I would have ignored it. No, it was my email alert, not just any email, the email on my CV. Immediately I jumped off the bed, every vestige of sleep taking flight. Immediately I grabbed my phone and saw at the head of the screen, the mail was the one I'd been waiting for, the one I was beginning to think wouldn't come but refused to lose hope just yet. 

Frantically I opened the email, my heart racing like I'd just pumped some coke into my veins, I was ready to scream in excitement when the words SORRY caught my eyes. Yes, that one word said it all and immediately everything within and around me was deflated; the joy, the bubbles, the hope. Yes; Sorry you are not what we're looking for right now, but we would bear you in mind would we ever have need for your services.

I stared at the screen and the first thought I had was it's 7am on a Sunday morning, who sends someone this kind of mail at 7am on a Sunday morning?

Madam, no one does that! 

At the start of the day one needs every bit of inspiration and encouragement, a positive mind and a hopeful spirit. 

Oh well, in any case I must say Thank You, most people don't bother to take the time to respond, and even when they do, they send some generic rejection letter. You didn't, you took the time to write specifically to me. For this I'm grateful. 

Ok, now that that's out of the way... How have you all been? I don't mean to kill your blues with my reggae, and I promised to not share any less than great news with you guys because; 
1. Y'all can like to pity somebody and I really don't want that. 
2. I've not had any great news to share in a while and that brings me to 1 again, I get tired of hearing "Awww, it will be well, God is in control..."
3. Some people actually derive great pleasure from hearing your bad news, why give them that pleasure?

Yeah, but that said; I'm starting a new job tomorrow (So YAYYY!). I work from from 3-9pm, leaving me to pursue (my) other businesses in the earlier hours of the day. My only reservation is that it's 7 days a week, and I've never worked 7 days a week but it's something I really want to do and I've decided to try it out. 

So that's it about me right now. What is going on with you? Please tell me guys, I really really want to know. We haven't really talked of late and I hate not knowing what's happening in your lives. 


  1. Yay. Thelma congrats on the new job. If it is something that you really want to do then go ahead and do it. 7 days a week can be stressful but I'm sure you will be fine. God bless

  2. What's going on with me is wedding planning wedding planning and more wedding planning. I am tired and my boss has refused to give me time off but I know that it will end in praise. Happy Sunday everybody.

    1. Congrats. Wish you success all the way

  3. Congrats on your new job.. Lucky u..

  4. Congratulations on ur job T. Go make a difference Momma!!!!

    The only thing going on in my life is that I'm still breathing in Oxygen! Finish.

    1. Phransea hun where av u been?u have been greatly missed. Congrats on ur new Job T,God will grant u the strength to go through the seven days a week schedule. As for wats happening in my life?hmmmmm I feel like am at DAT stage where everything in my ship is capsizing, I feel like my life has no meaning, I feel like things are not going as planned for me, everything is stagnant and I feel like I own the whole problems in this world but hey I refuse to be shaken, m holding on strongly to GOD and m using this period if trials to know him more and my faith n trust will never dwindle. @kabouy m so making progress in my weight loss routine, from 80-75 and I wudnt stop till I hit 70,I want u to b jealous. Lol

    2. And to think I thought bout u ystday. How's ur baby and ur home? Nice to see u back even if it's temporary...

    3. Lmaooo... *bear hug* maybel! all would be well!

      And i'm jealous ooo! Chai! Iv been too scared to get on the bathroom scale my sister. If I see 68 nah to start crying. If it is 70 I wie not eat for one full week(lol). Iv been moving from 60 - 65 back to 61 then to 67. Lol. And 50 is the goal o! Lmaooo! Chai! Pls what have you been doing Maybel! Pls tell me!

    4. Hmmmmm kabouy sorry for u,lol. Anyways nothing special, Gym and a bit of healthy diet nii plus green tea. Dats all.lamao

  6. Congrats on the new Job Thelma( I don't know when i'll be able to call you Tee without sounding like one "afamefuna"/"famzer" lol!)

    Meanwhile... errr.. i'm fine. still on the weight matter. Seems like this job is not drilling me enough cuz it's like i'm even still adding sef. Sadly. Been reading and reading and reading. Can't wait to start work fully. Then I feel like I should be doing more right now. Like i'm not using my "resources" to the fullest capacity.(I hope this makes sense) cuz I don't know how to elaborate on that. And spiritually... i'm so not doing enough and it's telling on the physical too. Okay that's enough. All in all.. on a scale of 1-10. I'll give myself a 6. So I guess i'm fine. :)

  7. Congrats on the Job,the only thing goin on with me now is some kind serious job hunting

  8. Thelms dear 'congra'

    #blessed sunday yall*

    *lips sealed and watching*

  9. Congrats Tee, so I decided to snoop today n he's not faithful after all but who cares

    1. are you going to confront him about it ?

    2. I will but not today, ill give it time

    3. Is there ever a time someone snoops and doesn't find something? This right here is the reason I question snooping; you've found out he's cheating, now what? You confront him, then what? Unless a woman is going to leave her cheating husband then I question the wisdom in snooping. Michie girl this is just me wondering aloud. I am so sorry, you've had your suspicions for a while now but to confirm it must be quite hurtful. I'm really not sure what I would do in your shoes...

    4. Snooping caused the first major fight in my marriage; yet, I didn't achieve anything. It can cause a lot of heart aches. However, 'knowing' helps one to be better prepared for any surprise. I wouldn't say it's all bad.


  10. Congraaaaaatulobia T. Great news.

  11. Congraaaaaatulobia T. Great news.

  12. congrats on your new job!! hope you have enough time to rest after 9pm.

    it's been 2 months working now..making sales (which I thought I wasn't good at) and referrals, which is pretty awesome.. i can't wait for the 5-8 month mark to ask for a transfer or go to some other institution as my workplace is too far pls. but beside that, everything seems great!

  13. That feeling of thinking it won't come but still holding unto hope best describe my situation now. After 5 stages and no feedback or nothing. Well am still holding unto hope while looking for others. Its not over until it is.

    Congrats on you new job Thelms.....

  14. Wish you all the best in your new gig, T. As for me, its been one aptitude test after the other, none has been successful so far even though I thought I did my best when I wrote them. But my eyes are watching God, so I'm still hopeful. I wrote another one yesterday, please fam, help pray for me to get this one, its a job that can really boost my career. (actually, by 'career', i meant 'financial status' hehehe)
    Naija. First they said go to school, toh, we did. Then they said school is not enough o, you must get a 2.1, to get a Job, toh, we got that by God's grace. Still, its an elbow room.
    Currently though I'm a Maths/Further Maths, Chemistry, Physics home tutor. So if you know anyone who needs help with those, hook a brother up. (runs away before T sues me for unlawful advertisement).

    1. BTW, T, I could totally relate when you said you dont like sharing bad news cos of the pity party. In my own case, I dont even tell my family when I get a rejection mail anymore. Reason is-- I hate having to console myself and console them at the same time too. Like, chill y'all, its not that bad.

    2. Lol... those tests ehn.. It is well.

    3. Punintended - apply to Agusto & co.

  15. Thanks so much guys. May you also have Yay moments this coming week. Amen.

  16. Congratulations on the new job Tee.

    As for what's up with me, I'm good, thanks for asking.

  17. My current situation: in a state of a bit of confusion. I noticed some humble changes in my children's dad and he still very much wants me back (even his mum & sister). That's really not an issue because I've always known that. The real issue is he has stated categorically that he will not allow his children live under another man's roof. Means if I want the kids to continue being with me, I either forgo the idea of remarrying or I choose reconciliation (believe me, he has the means to take custody of the children) but...............waiting for God's direction though I'm thinking His answer will be a capital 'NO GOING BACK'....I still won't preempt.

    Congrats on the job Thelma. Wish you all the best.


  18. Congrats on your new Job Tee, I pray its a springboard to bigger opportunities for you...Amen!

  19. Congratulations Tee. May this job bring about greater heights for you. *hugs*

  20. Congrats on ur new job T. Hv a good week.

  21. Quirkymoi and Punintended(my rap artist bro).. yes I gat famz! Lol! It is well... it'll all end in praise in Jesus name. *hugs* can't wait to hear your testimonies and it'll be really soon by God's grace. Amen. **big smile**

    1. Awww. aren't you the sweetest. Thanks dear, I appreciate.

  22. Thelma congrats on the new job. As for the person she just want to ruin your week. Some people just have bad weeks and they want to pass it on to others.

  23. Congrats Thelma! Wish you the very best with your new job and more opportunities down the line

  24. Congratulations Thelma da bebe!! :D

    1. 7 days a week though! Would you have breaks every other week or its 7days a week- 30days a month?!
      Since you like what it's about, you'd just prep your mind jare, eat well and sleep more. You'll do fine.
      Best wishes!

  25. Congratulations thelms. ....I choose to be happy because there's so much to be thankful for.

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.

One More Post...


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!

Question of The Day.

TTB readers doesn't this tweet below remind you of something?
That mail that someone sent me a few weeks back. 
But why on earth should a man sleep with his son's fiancé? But what am I saying, some men even sleep with their daughters...

Oh well, I'm throwing the question to you. What has happened in your life that you never saw coming, you never hesperred it, you never imagined could happen, you never imagined could happen to you? 
It could be good, it could be bad, it could be ugly. Do tell!
And it can be more than one. Let me tell you a few. 
-owning a blog -week long dry fast at Prayer City (I never hesperred it).  -staying in an (emotionally) abusive relationship.
The others require anonymity. LOL. Now over to you.
