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.
"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.
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...).
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.
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!
