You need to see the way i just cracked up after reading this.Apologies to men o but we all know it is true.

My heart goes out to the families of the crash victims, especially Alhaji Shehu Shagari. That man has seen enough tragedy in his life time. There was a time he lost about six kids in one day, can't really remember the story now. May God console them all.

Back to moi, nothing new. Called Nigeria immediately I heard about the crash. You know that yours truly has her family in Abuja, the story when it came out on CNN was sketchy, all I heard was plane, abuja, crash.
I was nearly weeing in my pants cos I know my father is always jumping around. That man never stay in one place.

I grabbed my phone to call my mum, MTN says the number you dialed is not available. I started crying. Called my sister in Lagos, she said she has notheard anything yet. I dropped the phone, thought about calling popsie himself instead of killing myself with worry. He picked up on the third ring, heaving a sigh of relief:

Moi: daddy where are u?
Dad: we just got back from church.
Moi: where is mommy, I have been calling her.
Dad: she is in the kitchen:
Moi: did you hear about the plane crash?
Dad: where? when?
Moi: in abuja now. Daddy thank God you are all fine. I will talk to you tomorrow.
Dad: Ose omo dada, let me watch CNN now.

I had to quickly discharge popsie so that I can call Ex and Wale. Those ones too are always flying. I called and I was the one that woke Ex up from sleep. He wasn't aware of any crash, told him to watch CNN and I hung up. Thank God!

Called Wale, the silly boy picked up and said: sweetheart I am fine. I knew you were going to call. Imagine o... such a pig headed thing he is. Laughing so hard, I hung up.

Took a long shower in the afternoon and I slept!. What a day...

Will you thank HIM please...?

Dear GOD,

I want to thank you for what you have already done. I am not going to wait until I see results or receive rewards; I am thanking you right now.

I am not going to wait until I feel better or things look better, I am thanking you right now.

I am not going to wait until people say they are sorry or until they stop talking about me; I am thanking you right now.

I am not going to wait until the pain in my body disappears; I am thanking you right now.

I am not going to wait until my financial situation improves; I am going to thank you right now.

I am not going to wait until I get promoted at work or until I get the job; I am going to thank you right now.

I am not going to wait until I understand every experience in my life that has caused me pain or grief; I am going to thank you right now.

I am not going to wait until the journey gets easier or the challenges are removed; I am thanking you right now. I am thanking you because I am alive.

I am thanking you because I made it through the day's difficulties.
I am thanking you because I have walked around the obstacles.
I am thanking you because I have the ability and the opportunity to do more and do better.

I'm thanking you because FATHER, YOU haven't given up on me.

I got that lovely piece from a good friend and it lifted my spirit. I know we should all improve on showing gratitude to God even for the things we consider as little mercies.

I have been a bit low in the spirit for some days now but God has been awesome as always. My blogger friends have been supportive with comments. Sister Sayo i know is smilling down at the rest of the family from heaven.

Yeah,no gist really. It wont be a boring weekend tho. I have to take out my braids this night. Have i ever blogged about my passion for Nigerian films? I have a box load of Cd's. I only do yoruba films tho, i will only watch the english ones when i am absolutely BORED!
On wednesday, i bought 15 yoruba films, that means my sleeping time is now 10pm for the next 3 weeks. Not a bad deal for someone that doesnt go out after work. My social life is nil that i know but what can a girl do? I guess i need to find out from my london peeps what they do to catch fun.Buki, funmi, Desola and Calabar girl over to you.

I was gisting with my colleague at work and she asked me if i were to rewind and fastfowward my life what age would i love to be. Well, to rewind abeg na 5 years old o with all the innocence and all. Worshiping God with truth and awe, believing that there is actually santa claus. Willy willy truly exists and i can throw my tooth on the roof so it can grow quickly. Infact there was a time i actually planted egg shells just for another to grow. As if that was not enough, i went to the stream by my house once in ibadan to catch tadpoles, thinking they were actually little fishes!
I can never forget the way my mum laughed that day before she called her husband to come and see what his children brought home!

To fast foward: me at 80 with my husband at our grandkids' graduation or wedding or some celebration. More prayers and we will get there abi now.

To all my October peeps, HAPPY BIRTHDAY. Cant start mentioning names i am not ready to blow my cover.

Have a lovely weeknend all.

R.I.P Sister Sayo

If you knew her, you will no doubt love her.
She was an epitome of beauty and grace.
Hardworking and religious.

We all call her Sister Sayo.
She was never married because she was(is) a sickler.
She was sweet, it never showed on her face what she was going through.

I called my house now and my sister said: Today is Sister Sayo's burial. I wanted to faint. The pain gripped my heart. Why did you guys not tell me.

My sister said to me, don't cry. Everyone is rejoicing here. She will not have crises anymore. She wont feel the pains anymore.I said to her but we wont see her anymore!

I am happy tho, she lived a good life. She did not joke with her life, health and God.

Rest in peace Folasayo Olajide.
I know the whole of Ibadan will mourn your loss.
B.C.O.S has surely lost a gem.
See you on the other side.

Can I do anything without HIM?

I woke up today wondering where and what i would have been without HIS unfailing love. There are times i have shoved HIS love back into HIS face by being so ungrateful, when i don't thank HIM enough. When I don't praise HIM enough for that little thing HE did.

Sometimes, sleeping and waking up peacefully, eating what I like at the time I want, having enough to spend at the time I want.... they all seems like little mercies. What if HE did not give me the grace to be able to sleep peacefully, the grace to have enough to spend and even waste on the frivolities of life.

There are times I fight with HIM so seriously that I wont talk to him for a day! I always ask HIM,if you truly LOVE me why would you allow all these things to happen to me. Do you take pleasure in me crying my eyes out? Why do you allow me to go through all those phases,if you think they are strengthening me then you are wrong! Totally wrong, because I always come out feeling totally useless and hating life more.

But today, I woke up at midnite to TALK to HIM. I told him how badly I h ave been hurting since Ex and I parted. I told him how I thought it was pointless telling HIM anything again since he kuku allowed that one to happen despite all my prayers. I told HIM that all my friends are married and I am always on the train, that I am always a bridesmaid but when will I become the BRIDE?

Then I stopped to think that why did I not at least thank HIM for life,if I were dead or in a hospital with my legs suspended will I even remember anything about getting married. If I was blind,will a man even give me a second look and what if I was deaf and dumb?

Then I read Zechariah 3 and then I asked HIM to forgive me. I have been a silly daughter. I asked HIM to take all my sins away and create in me a new heart to LOVE HIM MORE AND MORE.

I am sorry DADDY, I know you have forgiven me because I slept so soundly after our conversation. Dear GOD, please help me to love you more with each passing day.

What does Jesus mean to you? Have a fantabulous week!!

What goes around comes around

I did not think i would have any reason to blog this soon as nothing spectacular has been happening around me. In my usual saturday practice, i decided to call Nigeria to speak to old friends. I got through to the guy that made me meet Wale,( i don't know why Wale keeps coming into my blog lately), anyways, we got talking and h was filling me on old gists.

Something just told me to ask him about one of our old friends who is a confirmed playboy. Here is the convo:

Temmy: ehen, bobo shine nko?
J Boy: he dey o. Infact, to ba gbo calamity to befall e lately. You will feel for him o.
Temmy: calamity ke? Who died?
J Boy: nobody died.
Temmy: (heaving a sigh of relief) wetin con do am.
J Boy: his girlfriend of 7 years got married 3 weeks ago.
Temmy: that is good news.
J Boy: good news oshi wo ni yen, they did not break up now. Infact the girl still came to see him in Abuja a week before she got married to collect money from him for something she wanted to do in lagos.
Temmy: (laughing like a mad woman) yeepa. O ti fi owo mugun tun ara ese ni yen.
J Boy: why are u laughing now, why did i even tell you in the first place. It is not a laughing matter o, you wont believe we had to take shine to the hospital for checkup when he heard. he fainted outrightly.
Temmy: (laughing the more). Have you forgotten, that what goes around comes around.
J Boy: what do u mean, u don start again o.
Temmy: can you remember that Lola girl he was dating in Abuja that time, the Youth Corper.
J Boy: yeah of cos.
Temmy: shebi he was lying to the girl that after her na Agbani Darego. After he was through with her, and called the girl out of the blues say he no dey do again. Wetin i tell you all that day?
J boy: Omo, na you know o. Na true sha. Infact no be only Lola then o, runs plenty for hin hand.
Temmy: this should serve as a lesson to you as well, if you keep hurting innocent girls you may never have happiness.
J Boy: abeg no curse me o. E don do we go talk later.
Temmy: u dey craze, we never finish our gist joo.

To be honest, i dont understand why he fainted o shebi he just felt part of the pain he has caused other people in life. Well, i am not saying what the girl did was very nice of ehr but then i am happy that one of the play boys of this world got a taste of his own medicine.

Wale mi, Wale mi, Wale mi. He is coming for holiday in 2 weeks time. Who knows what may happen?

Are There Rules?

See how you have all finished my tall, dark knight in shining armour. You are all wicked! (sob sob). Lol. There is no point lying,I was really liking him maybe because I had a soft spot(what a word) for him in the first place. But then no thanks to Miguel and diamond: they finished me. Desola, you just cracked me up and I actually felt like crawling into a corner ki n de raise up my hands with my eyes closed. I love you guys for all your wonderful comments.

I am not going to Norway with him. We talked at length yesterday. As Taurean Minx said, he needs to sort out himself with his babe of 7 years. I told him that I don't want anybody pouring acid on my beautiful face.

Yeah, I was telling you about Wale my crush abi? My friend went back to Maiduguri where he was doing his NYSC and his brother still calls me once in a while to ''try his luck''.
Then out of the blues, one afternoon I was checkingmy emails in my room when my phone rang and it was a private number calling me. I am always on my best pitch with private numbers cos it could be anyone and I always want to try and sound ''tush''.

Temmy: hello (with a calculated tone of voice)
Wale: hey, how are you. This is Wale.
Temmy: Wale? (honestly I didn't think it could be him).
Wale: yeah. D's friend.

I think I actually dropped the phone at this point. My heart was begininning to beat fast. So D gave him my number. Abi the guy really likes me too ni? Meanwhile the boy was talking but I did not hear half of what he said my mind was in total turmoil.

He came to pick me from work one friday afternoon and there we clicked and became good friends.After 3 months he asked me out but I couldn't accept cos of Ex. He knew about Ex all the while but he was always praying that Ex will mess up.
If an angel had come down from heaven then to tell me that Ex will mess things up I woulda gone into a big argument with the angel o. I was that smitten about him.
Wale and I became so close that at a point my mum had to wake me up in the middle of the night to confirm if I was still with Ex.
Time was 1am
Mum: temmy,oro pataki ni mo fe so fun e yi.(very impt discussion).
Temmy: (still feeling sleepy) yes mummy.
Mum: it is about you and Ex, I have noticed that wale boy is always calling and coming to take you out. I hope you are not planning to leave Ex for him.
Temmy: haba,mama temmy!. That is not going to happen. He is just a very close friend.
Mum: o better o, because emi o ni mo oko omo ki n tu mo ale e o. ( I won't know my daughter's husband and know the concubine as well).
Temmy: yes ma, but remember that I never marry the boy sha. This one about ale(concubine) pass me.
Mum: na u know o.Foolish girl.
Temmy: goodnite mummy. Turned my back and quickly went to sleep.

That my mama likes wahala, imagine waking me up in the middle of that night for her ''pep talk''.

Wale still remains a close friend till date. Crush faded long before I left Nigeria.

My Crush(es) and I

How was my weekend? Good and boring. Did what i love doing most:shopping. I left my house with the plans of buying just a pair of boots and winter coat. Trust me to always go out of budget, i ended up buying the coat and the boots, a pair of jeans and 6 tops. What will i do about this bad habit of mine, i need help o please and fast too. Sometimes, i wonder what i want to do with all the shoes, bags and all other things. Trust my father in heaven to always do things in mysterious ways, when i got to church on sunday and i was picking out the word for the day.I picked ''lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths will not destroy''. Food for thought......

Lately, all my single male friends have been making moves on me. I have been enjoying the attention but then there is one that i am beginning to like sooo much. There is a snag tho, he is in a relationship. Ok, the story is he has been in a relationship for like 7 years now and the 2 of them have serious problems. We were always talking about it and then i normally give my own candid advise.

Ever since he heard about Ex and I, he has intensified his ''yarns''. Now i am getting to like him o. He calls me everynite and we talk for hours on end, just because of him i have shifted sleeping time to 10pm!

Women, why cant we ever keep a grip on our feelings. Ehn why now? It is the guy's birthday this saturday and he called me lastnite to find out if i will be available as he is planning to have a mini bash. Guess where?: NORWAY! Number of guests:2.
Guests being Temmy and birthday boy.

Now, i called my sister and i gave the full details. She did not even allow me to finish my story before she said, you have to go o. You can't kill yourself because a man cheated on you. Go out and have fun, enjoy your life.

Is going to Norway with a man that has a girlfriend a good idea even though he is a good friend and of cos i am too sure ''nothing'' will happen?

Is that a good way/idea of having fun?

I never give am answer o, told him i will let him know by thursday.

And then my crush came to town. I am very sure at some point in our beautiful lives, we have had a terrible crush on some guy/chic.

I had a crush on Laolu during my primary school days, i can remember that he used to sit two desks away from mine and i always stole glances at him then. The boy was really cute, then in our primary 5 days, he had a car accident and he was taken out of the country for treatment. The way i cried the day our class teacher said Laolu was involved in an accident, you would think he was my blood brother.

3 months later he was back in school with a limp by then the crush was growing out of hand but thank God i left for secondary school in primary 5, if not maybe i woulda asked the boy out. Not that i get that kind liver then o but who knows?

In secondary shool, i did not have any crush cum mirinda on any guy till i was in S.S 2, and for no one else but my friend's boy friend! Me sef.....
Thank God that the guy left for another school, but today we are very good friends. I am sure he suspects me sometimes sha cos i was extra nice to him way back..

Then i met Ex when i was in my final year in Uni. No one before him but i had another crush after him. Chei, his name is Wale(thank God wale plenty for this world). I met him one bright and beautiful evening.

This is the story, i was posted to Yobe State for my NYSC after the 3 weeks orientation i was redeployed to Abuja. Ex then was posted to Akwa Ibom State, we did everything possible to get him redeployed to Abuja but it wasnt possible.
There was this friend of mine that desperatley wanted to hook me up with his brother, but then the brother is married and has his wife and kid in america. He thought i'd never found out as he had none of their pictures in his house. His apartment is just a perfect bachelor pad that any girl would have belived he really was single.

That fateful day, he came to the house with his younger brother(my friend) to take me out, unfortunately it was my turn to cook dinner for my dad and i coudnt go out. They decided to wait till i finished my chores(men, when they are looking for something...)2 hours, they sat in the car outside my house. I joined them later and was talking to my ''toaster''. Then i noticed there was this guy in front of the car that wasnt talking to anyone, wetin concern me i no give am face. We were about leaving to go and buy ice cream and my ''toaster'' told wale to come and sit at the back as ''madam'' has to sit in front.

Then i saw him very well,tall dark and handsome. Isnt that how they all come? He mumbled hi to me and men i was smitten!!!
We got the ice cream and we dropped him off to pick up his car at my ''toaster's,'' house. This was the converstaion i had with my friend that nite:

Temmy: abeg who be dat guy?
Friend: wale now, he is doing NYSC as well. He was my mate in Uni.
Temmy:uhmn, na wa o. The guy fine sha.
Friend: are you telling me, he knows.
Temmy: when next will you bring him to my house?
Friend: are you mad?
Temmy: you have a dirty mind, i just want to be his friend now.
Friend:ok, no be me go introduce you to a man. When i want you to hook up with my brother.
Temmy: you are the crazy one here, don't you know i have a boyfriend? Ok, forget it sha. The guy is just really cute.
Friend: yeah, yeah.

After they dropped me off, i couldnt help fantasizing about the guy. Chineke, i quickly picked my phone and i called Ex, telling him how much i love and miss him. I couldnt believe i found someone else attractive.

I shall continue the story some other time. I have pains, the time of a woman is upon me.

Let me give you one of their fav lines.

Mom: bola, this your bag is really nice.
Sis: I know mummy.(note, no thank you. She knows what is coming next).
Mom:Where did you get it from.
Sis: A Shop mummy.(It is either Gucci Or Fendi her mouth don tear ehn, that my sister).
Mom: (voice rising) i know its from a shop, would you have nicked it in the first place. You are too frivolous, apa ni e. Spending soo much on one bag, is that how you will be spending your husband's money? If i spent your father's money like that, do you think there will be enough to take care of you and the rest...... story don start be that o.

Fast forward to two weeks later;

Mom: bola
Sis: yes mummy:
Mom: can i take that your new brown bag out, i need to go and see mama tinuke in some hours.
Sis: why not, mummy. I hope it is not the same one you abused me for 5 hoursover sha. (running away from mummy now, cos if she no dey careful she go chop knock for her head).

That is a typical scenario in my house once you buy anything new. Thank God we are all away from her now. Miss her terribly tho. Guess i have to write a blog on my mother very soon. Sweet woman.

Have a lovely weekend and remember to always confess positive things.

Weekend of drama

Had a lovely weekend. I have learnt something new: thou shall not go shopping with my sister and sister-in-law again. We walked the whole of west end like walking was going out of fashion. Wicked souls, they did not allow me eat till about 6pm when i was about to faint from hunger. After my nearly 8 hours of waka-bout i only bought 3 shirts from TM. Imagine o. The only thing that made my weekend lovely was X-Factor jare.

Shey i said EX was in town abi. His father came in on sunday and called me that we have to ''talk''. Talk ke? About? For? Anyways, i went to see him on sunday evening and we had a long one. He told me that he doesnt want to know what O.A did but that he is apologising on his behalf.

He said and i quote '' Temmy, i shouldnt sit you down to involve myself in your relationship with my son. But you are like a daughter to me as well, you have been wonderful in your own ways to my family. I got to love you so much for my son when my wife passed away. You were like a rock behind him cos he was nearly cracking up that time.'' Daddy, i am sorry to interrupt you sir but did he tell you that he actually cheated onme? He did not tell me what he did my dear, he just said i should talk to you and REALLY BEG YOU.
I told his dad not to bother himself as we will both sort ourselves out. I left his hotel some few hours later with a token of £300 to pick a cab. Emi ke, na jump i jump on the tube to my house. Bijou, contact me for your share as per my sister level.

Yesterday night, O.A and I were trying to ''talk'' but we ended up having a nasty argument. I cant even remember what i said that made him flip.

My phone is ringing that is my momma on the phone. It is time for early morning prayers. Take care all.

I have learnt......

I have learnt that the best classroom in the world is at the feet of an elderly person.

I have learnt that when you are in love, you glow and it shows.

I have learnt that just one person saying to me ''you've made my day! makes my day.

I have learnt that being kind is more important than being right.

I have learnt that I can always pray for someone when I don't have the strength to help them in some other way.

I have learnt that no matter how serious life requires me to be, everyone needs a friend to act goofy with.

I have learnt that sometimes all a person needs is a hand to hold and heart to understand.

I have learnt that life is like a roll of toilet paper. The closer it gets to the end the faster it goes.

I have learnt to be glad God doesnt give us everything we ask for.

I have learnt that money doesnt buy class. True, so very true.

Tap into God's power

Today's Scripture
"And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ..." (Ephesians 3: 17-18)

Are you in a relationship that you feel is over, a relationship that seems "dead?" Jesus would say to you that He has power over death. The love of God will bring life into that relationship and take it to an entirely new level. God's love can bring back to life what may seem dead to you.Maybe you feel that you have a "dead end job," or maybe you think your life is going nowhere and you have no purpose. We want to encourage you today! The same power that raised Jesus from the dead can revitalize your career and put you on a path of success. We know that God's plan for you is good, full of hope and purpose. His love for you will never run out. Your faith—no matter how small—can ignite His power in every one of your situations.

A Prayer for Today
God, today I will be surrounded by Your favor and no weapon formed against me will prosper. You have power over death and I believe that transformative power can bring hope, peace, joy, and fulfillment to my life. In Jesus' Name – Amen.

I got this from a friend that sends me inspirational emails everday.

Weekend was ace. I slept, wacthed movies and went to church. I have not worn a skirt in ages, so i decided to try my luck on sunday and was it bunzz? You need see how sexy i looked and to make my day everyone in church said i was looking beautiful. There was this guy sitting right in the pew opposite me and he kept looking at me. Well, we were both looking to be honest. Aftrer the service on our way out, na in i see say the guy dey wear wedding band! Pity!.

What else did i do o? nothing much. I have stopped drinking coke, now it is Supermalt and noodles. Between Friday nite and this morning, i have finished 6 bottles. I need to see a doctor next weekend to compalin about my new found way of life. For all you know, every problem in the UK has a name. Cant wait for the doctors to give this one a name as well.

Well, i also spoke to Ex on saturday night. We both decided that it is better he stays in a bed and breakfast as i will be away in Leeds. Me, i wont lie to myself. I am still very much crazy about him but the fact remains that i can not get it out of my head that he cheated on me. And for that reason i can not an will not take him back. Meanwhile, he asked me what he can do to make me come back to him. Simple thing i said.

Him: oro e ti su mi, woman.
Moi: man, ma je ko su e o.
Him: what is it that you think i can do to change your mind?
Moi: simple,you can walk from Abuja to Lokoja with a placard saying'' I LOVE TEMMY''.
Him: be serious now.
Moi: i am serious.
Him: i mean seriouslywhat...........
Moi: lets start with me having an affair with your best friend. Just for 2 weeks.
Him: are u crazy?
Moi: were u crazy before you asked the other girl out?
Moi: no buts, we go talk later. I wan crash o my dear. Sleep tight.

Teva:You better start saving for my wedding. I have started 1 week dry fasting For God to bring Mr Right very soon.
Not 2 ways, Bijou is Chief Brides' Maid once Mr right shows face.
Wedding planner(s) Belle and Mosaic. With the number of weddings they have been to, i think they are the perfect candidate.
Gotta dash now peeps. Have a lovely week.

And hey, my pastor said on Sunday that we can shape our destiny with our tongue. Always endeavour to say something positive about your job, your family, your body, your finances, your relationship and whatever.
