Current Situation. (Come Into My Bedroom and Let's Take a Walk!)





This post is birthed from... Well it's almost 12am, I'm wide awake, I have too much adrenaline flowing through my veins, and I can't think of anything I'd want to post right now. So why not share a few pictures, right? At least I can title the post "current situation" and in turn get the skinny on your own current situation, (I hope...).

So yesterday I was at the home of one of my 'day one's. We celebrated her son's first birthday. It was a cozy event and I had more than enough to eat and drink. What's more? I was the designated cake cutter and sharer, but I didn't as much as have one bite! I'm so proud of myself! HOWEVER, for some reason; happiness, vodka or oxygen perhaps, my weight loss seems to have come to a halt. I'm neither losing nor gaining, and no, I'm not eating more. I think it's just time to hit the gym. I guess my body isn't what it used to be when I was 25. 


I took loads of car selfies. (The life of an introvert reluctant to mix with other earthlings. #stallingtactics). 

"Cake-cutter" duties. 'Just want to take this moment to say to my darling friend; mummy-Tobe, how much I love and adore you. I have loved you ever since I took to you is JS2v and today I marvel at the woman you have become. One day when life stops being so hectic and we stop being so darn busy, we will sit and muse. Kisses my darling! 

***
Well after the usual Monday ish, I got to it. I know Monday, being the first day of the week, is a very serious day. But warrahell, im'ma have dates/drinks/dinner whenever I very well choose. My darling friend Zee was great company as usual. And as usual I let my hair down with him and had a couple of Long Islands. He was also a good sport about taking my picture. 


...because Monday nights don't have to be dreary!

***
Back home, I'm still wide awake. I have a very early day tomorrow but for some reason, my mind wouldn't stay still. I poured me a few shots of vodka, grabbed some boiled groundnuts I found in the fridge and then I resigned to my bedroom!



Hey, I never promised that I could win an award for 'neatest room of the year'! 

By now you probably know that my two Favourite things are dogs and perfumes. (see below, my rott, Ruby, is growing). Well these two are the newest members of my perfume family. I opened them when I was going out this evening. Flash by Jimmy Choo (I'm sorry to say but I'm yet to be blown away by any Jimmy Choo fragrance. Perhaps they should stick to bags and shoes?) and Red Door Shimmer by Elizabeth Arden (as you must know, if you're a perfume lover; Arden scents are always subtle and gentle. They don't strive to impress, they just strive to thrive, for the feminine woman...). 

Ruby & I. Me, leaving home for Yoko's baby's dedication last Sunday. When my mum saw this picture she freaked out; saying I've put on weight. I feel like I have too but the scale actually shows I've dropped a few kg (I checked on Saturday). So why am I suddenly looking more "rotund" than usual? I don't like this ooooooo!)

***
I've developed a bit of wanderlust of late, suddenly. And at the moment my wanderlust has taken me within the shores of our country I never quite planned to visit. I'm eyeing Ikogosi water springs for some time in October (hola me if you'll like to visit some local tourist attractions this year). 

In the month of August I've visited some beautiful places in Nigeria, in the South and West. But since Uyi is yet to "dash" me his camera I wasn't able to capture their beauty in pictures. I was only able to take a few of mine. 

Me, far far away. A few weekends ago. 

Moi, enjoying my native chicken, unripe plantain and some coffee, another weekend in August, away from Lagos. This chicken, gravy and plantain is the shiiiii, any wonder I haven't lost any significant weight? *covers face* *runs away*. 


***
LOL. So this is just some of what I've been up to with my weekends. I'm saving up for more travels, more excitement, hopefully before the year ends. And I'm certain it will happen. 

***

So my current situation is in bed, eating boiled groundnuts and typing this. What's your current situation? Plus what great tourist attractions within Nigeria have you visited that you would recommend? I've heard about IITA Ibadan, which I'm eyeing for this weekend. I've also got Ikogosi on my mind. A friend just suggested Obudu but I don't think I want to. Ideas anyone? 

Hey, do you have any exciting plan you intend to fulfil before the year ends? Share with me!

  1. Current situation is browsing the Internet at almost 2am in the morning instead of sleeping. And I do feel sorry for my self cus the boss will soon wake up for a feed! #mummylife

    Travel plans for the rest of the year is Germany for a few days this month, Paris for my birthday /wedding anniversary in November then dubai or Canada for Christmas! I'm hoping dubai cus I'm not about the cold life, UK is cold enough in December talkless of Canada.

But she went overboard, so nah. Whatever ur doing or did, keep doing.

  6. Lovely pictures Thelma. I love how you're not letting being single slow you down. You look genuinely happy and even younger in these pictures. I used to think maybe you're in denial when you used to say that marriage is not your priority but now I'm starting to believe you. My current situation is at work, waiting for a departmental meeting to start. I wonder why we have to have meetings every morning, most of the time there is nothing new to say but you dare not complain, work no dey Nigeria.

  7. Current situation is organising my week like my life depends on it. And getting all the ducks in a row. Clearing out my house by force or fire...that teeling of havig too much is creeping back into my existence and I don't like it one bit.

    IITA is very nice, but you can also easily consider Ghana if you haven't been.

  15. I can't keep a dog to save my life. Pet or not, I just can't spare time for one (for now, at least).

    I want to visit Ghana or SA before this year runs out. Ghana because a colleague told me of one beautiful hotel with a good spa in Accra (forgotten the name now) where he spent some days honeymooning. SA because? Just because.......

    I love that you are happy in these pictures and the happiness reflects through the pictures....keep it up.

  16. Current situation... trying to get some reading done but I keep letting myself get distracted by social networks. Aaargh!

    Meanwhile you look good madam T, keep shining. And I also really recommend the cattle ranch in obudu, it's absolutely beautiful and I love the cold when you're thousands of feet above sea level. You'll experience what it really feels like to have your head in the clouds.

  19. Thumbs up. I like the post. Seems like a reality show: A day in the life of Thelma. It's my first time here and I like it already.

    "I'm saving up for more travels, more excitement, hopefully before the year ends. And I'm certain it will happen"

    Like Nana suggested above, marina resort, tinapa and even ogbudu cattle ranch should make the list of where to travel to.

    Welcome to the night crawling club. Yeah, my mum used to call me 'cockroach' because according to her, I don't 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.

#WriteRight. VIVIAN: MY FIRST SEX EXPERIENCE WITH MY BOYFRIEND

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....!

THE ‘NEW’ SIDE CHICK: I WAS HER

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…

Shhhhhhh....

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.
