Recently, I had the privilege of watching a friend’s daughter take her first steps in growing to become an independent young lady. Said daughter is about 8/9 years old and of course has been and still is under the protective wings of eagle-eyed dad!
We had just come out from church and on our way to the car park, when dad remembered he had planned to buy his kids some McDonalds. We were now standing at the corner of McKee Dees and he had already sent off the older one on his very own to the local sports shop. Time for some independence day event, season 1, episode 1, for the younger daughter. Continue reading
This snowy second weekend of December is my mama’s birthday! Almost 6 decades on this planet earth. It’s not a joke! And yes, she’s really a Director of Education in Lagos State but I bet if you saw her, she wouldn’t strike you as one. I have to confess that I myself didn’t believe it at first. I assumed my brother was just Continue reading
“So what did Virgin [trains] say?”
“That I have to send them my tickets for them to process the refund.”

Recently I went out for dinner with my family (or should I say part of) to an ethnically-diverse buffet-style restaurant in the city centre.

See the picture below? Do you see what I see? No, look again and really see. Be inspired by the title of this post and think outside the box. Do you see it now? No? Continue reading
Read the first two episodes of this Schalp Attack here and here to be able to get this one.
We interrupt the SS series to bring you some thoughts for the holidays, especially if we’re wearing similar shoes!
A friend of mine did some mathematical stats on the number of hours teachers work compared to ‘normal’ workers like you non-teachers. You can read it here (if the link does not work for you, holla and I’ll copy and paste it at the bottom of this post). The summary of the post is that teachers generally have an equivalent of 2 weeks of holidays per year, so be nice to your teacher friends, eh!!
So I had my first half term break for this academic year some weeks back and I was determined not to let the break break away from me nor allow myself coast through it but be productive – feed my mind, body, soul and spirit. This mindset kept me in action mode and I maintained, give or take half an hour, my sleep routine. I was exhausted by the week leading to the break, getting out of the bed needed a good portion of self-talk! But get out I did! Continue reading
