If I Could Turn Back....

If I could turn back the hands of time.........................
Maybe things would have been very different,
Maybe I won't be feeling this way,
Maybe I won't have to be so scared,
Maybe, just Maybe...............

I will be away for a while.

He asked me........

I said YES!!!!

I am so excited.

How he asked: I was downstairs in the kitchen washing the plates we just used.
I got back upstairs and met him dancing to Al Green's I dont wanna be lonely. I started dancing with him, then the song changed to WILL YOU MARRY ME? He went down on his knees and asked me.

I screamed YES!

Did I cry? NO.

Spoil sport. Most women cry now abi.

Congratulations to Funmi and Wole o jare.

1 down babe, we have 3 more to go.

This is not a good one. I told Wildcat that enough is enough o but she didnt listen to me. I warned her o, see what she has got her self into. Agreed, I know I am partly to be blamed for initiating her into the blog ville but then...............

Remeber that a few posts back, I told you that she will be getting married soon abi. After staying on her neck for some weeks, she started to blog and her imagination became to wild for her to handle.

One way, her husband to be got hold of the URL and she could have denied but seeing Temmy's name she couldnt even dare.

Just before I posted this, the guy called me to tell me

''Thank you for being a wonderful friend to his wife''.

Chineke, na play now, the gal no meet any cowboy, shuo!
Do you think she actaully had sex with a virtual stranger???
Do you think she can do that?

Na so I dey ask am questions o.

Bobo ti vex o.

We need to start a petition board for him to forgive her.

I asked him, I hope you are not calling off the wedding( heart beating fast now).

Of course not, I love her(smiling now) but I need to teach her a lesson.

Yeah, but please tender justice with mercy your highness.

Never allow your imagination to run away from your grips.

Now Wildie is down with flu but I know the truth, she is suffering from Husby to be's wrath.

I am particularly happy,please don't tell her o.

Well, as a good friend I stayed on the phone for over an hour trying to console her. What are friends for anyways if not to get each other into trouble and then look for a way out.

Will be back soon!

Strength of a Woman

The Strength of a woman:

Malachi 3:3 says: "He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver."
This verse puzzled some women in a Bible study and they wondered what this statement meant about the character and nature of God.

One of the women offered to find out the process of refining silver and get back to the group at their next Bible Study. That week, the woman called a silversmith and made an appointment to watch him at work. She didn't mention anything about the reason for her interest beyond her curiosity about the process of refining silver. As she watched the silversmith, he held a piece of silver over the fire and let it heat up. He explained that in refining silver, one needed to hold the silver in the middle of the fire where the flames were hottest as to burn away all the impurities.

The woman thought about God holding us in such a hot spot; then she thought again about the verse that says: "He sits as a refiner and purifier of silver."She asked the silversmith if it was true that he had to sit there in front of the fire the whole time the silver was being refined.

The man answered that yes, he not only had to sit there holding the silver, but he had to keep his eyes on the silver the entire time it was in the fire. If the silver was left a moment too long in the flames, it would be destroyed. The woman was silent for a moment. Then she asked the silversmith, "How do you know when the silver is fully refined?" He smiled at her and answered, "Oh, that's easy -- when I see my image in it"

If today you are feeling the heat of the fire, remember that God has his eye on you and will keep watching you until He sees His image in you. Pass this on right now.

This very moment, someone needs to know that God is watching over them. And, whatever they're going through, they'll be a better person in the end.

"Life is a coin. You can spend it anyway you wish, but you can only spend it once.

Oh by the way, I spent this weekend with HIM. And it was awesome. We talked at length about how much I have not trusted and believed HIM lately. Being the nice bloke that He is, he told me I am forgiven!

My half bottle of Moet as well, went down last night with fried rice. For those that know me so well, I am a good cook, the whole flat was just smelling like a 5 star hotel kitchen! I sure know how to enjoy my single life.

I am tired of that Tunde boy trying to come in between my new found love and I. For your info dude, Ayo sent me a love text yesterday.It says: Temmy, life will be incomplete without you, don't mind Tunde. He is just jealous!!! Jump into the river in PH for all I care my dear. Is it because I have not told you that I am actually using Ayo to get to

Biodun I have sent my email address, lets hook up before you to Naija. I am sure you will have fun.

Can somebody please tell me why some spineless idiots that call themselves men beat up their girlfriends!!

I am not going to blog about this but I think such creatures deserves death sentence preferably by hanging . A man that beats up a woman is not a MAN in my own dictionary, he is a fool.

Thank God for Arsenal!

How I spent yesterday:

Woke up at 6.55am
Got to work 8.55am.
Did blog rounds for 1 hour
Started work but checking blogger as well in between.

Went for lunch break at 2pm with my girl Tokky. She got me the top I have been eyeing since December. Luv ya loads.

Left the office 5pm.
Went to check for a white shirt, only saw expensive ones, £85 for a white shirt! Why? I'd rather spend that on a shoe. Did not buy eventually anyways.

Got home 6.30pm.

Took a long shower, fried plantain.
Set me self a dish of rice, chicken and plantain.

Brought out my Moet from the fridge(stole it from pop's luggage when he came to London some weeks back).

Switched off the light in the room. I played a Nigerian(yoruba) movie. Not a sad one tho. Just so hilarious, trust Nigerian babes wanting to act posh. A la saying ''wulzup'', fried hegg(egg), ''you didn't told me you were coming''.Alright, enough!

Then I remembered Arsenal was going to play Bolton. By then, I was getting tipsy on my Moet. By the time Arsenal lost the first penalty i was half way drunk! lol. I love football but erm......

I emptied by glass and and when i tried to stand up to go to the bathroom, I knew I was in for it. My TV became 3. Well done Temmy.

Then my mum called: I picked up and the next thing she said is, omo baba e You have been drinking. That woman, she knows me too well.

Yeah, my father drinks only champagne and I grew up to love champagne. Like he always says, if you ever want to drink, drink the best wine. lol.

I switched off my phones and gbam,na my alarm wake me this morning.

Miggie is very right. That is valentine for a single babe.

It is all about love today

I remember:
Our first kiss,

Our first dinner date,
The first party we went to,
The first wedding we attended together,
The first church service we both went to,
The first New Year we spent together,
The first card he gave to me,
The first gift i got on our first valentine together,
The first time i slept over at his place.

I remember the way I cried when he was posted to Akwa Ibom and I was posted to Yobe for NYSC.
I remember that I nearly killed my mum to have both of us redeployed to Abuja.
I remember how I jumped on him after NYSC.He came to check me in Abuja like 4 times and I never stepped Akwa-Ibom.
Today, I remember how my heart flips each time i receive a text message from him.
I remember the day he introduced me to his mum and two weeks later his sisters, oh my! They were fussing over me. I don't blame them now, I am an angel and people come across angels once in a life time.

I remember:

The expression on his face when I said i was going to see if i can date him way back in 2001,
The expression on his face when I eventually agreed was priceless,
The expression on his face the first time i swore at someone,
The expression on his face the first day I had a nasty menstrual cramp,
The expression on his face the day I fainted in church and was rushed to the clinic.
The expression on his face the day i was leaving Nigeria to come to the UK, we knew i was going to be away for at least a year and half. I ran back after 6 months tho.

I, remember the expression on his face when i said NO I can't possibly marry you. Not after his betrayal of trust.

I remember what he told me the night of the 14th of January: I have done everything possible to let you know that I love you and I am sorry I hurt you. If you are meant for me, I believe you will come back to me.

I remember today that i was once hopelessly in love with him.
I remember today that I have not met any guy I can compare to/with him.

Today I feel so much in love.

Yeah, that is it!

And Of Cos:
Happy Birthday to my lovies:

Gbenga (my cousin)
Jerry Boy.

Life, life......

Now my best friend(male) has made me believe in the act of life continues. Let me start by saying I have 2 best friends. A man and a woman, at 30 years and both getting married in a few months I shouldn't be calling them boy and girl again.

My best friend boy is awesome and I LOVE HIM ever so dearly. How did he manage to become my best friend sef, years ago when I was in my year 2 in Uni was when we met.

Our Story:
I really can't remember now but he was really ''chasing '' me then. I was so attracted to him as well but hid it perfectly well. After about 4 months of hide and seek, we started a relationship that lasted for 3 weeks. Life is tough! The 3 weeks was fun, always together, lunch and dinner was one thing we never missed having together. Then out of the blues one day I went to check him at home only to find all his flatmates outside, after the normal pleasantries one of them offered to take me out because the person I came to see is yet to come back from school. Haba, with his car parked outside...... life life.

Went home and 30 minutes later, he was knocking.

His Story:

Sweetheart, I am really sorry and I really shouldn't be telling you this. There is this girl I have been asking out for a year now, out of the blues she agreed to be mine. Now I am so torn between....

Shut up idiot I screamed! If you like her then go for her, I definitely do not deserve someone that still have the hots for someone else. Get out!

Next morning, I left for home to cry on my mum's shoulders.Spent a week at home and by the time I got back to school I had forgiven him. Talk about parental therapy: highlighting that he definitely isn't a correct person! lol

Somehow, we resolved the differences and we became really close. After Uni, we both started working not so far away from one another in Abuja. Sometimes he picks me up from work and sometimes I pick him up. He never missed having dinner at my place, he became very close to my sisters and Ex. He Then in September 2003 the girlfriend met someone new and she moved on!

He called me to say we should go for lunch, well that is kinda normal. When I got downstairs, I saw my friend looking so forlorn.

Temmy: Ki lode Mr Man? Why you dey bone face for your person?
Bestfriend: E don happen o.
Temmy: Wetin.
Bestfriend: She left me.
Temmy: Who left you?
Bestfriend: Lola.
Temmy: (started to laugh like a mad woman). Babes, I am sorry but it was just funny. My pound of flesh at last! lol.

He was shaking so badly and I had to take the keys from him. When we got to our usual amala spot, best friend just started to cry. Omo disgrace, I quickly turned his car around and drove him back to my office.

For the period while he mourned his loss, I was his support. He wouldn't dare cry in front of his boys, with me he cried, he wailed, he sobbed. He was a normal person, he wasn't trying to ''form'' MAN.

To cut long story short before I bore you all to death. He met a younger girl in 2004.I teased endlessly about the age difference, he is 7 years older but the babe is really matured.Last night he called me at midnight to say that he just proposed to her and she accepted. They are getting married in June on her birthday.

Temmy: hello sweets,it's midnight u no dey sleep.
Him: Shut up monkey.
Temmy: Gorilla, ki lo de o. I dey go church tomorrow I no get time for gists.
Him: for real??(being very sarcastic now)Idiot. My friend, Dee has agreed to marry me.
Temmy:(Sleep clearing fro my eyes in 2 seconds flat). When did that happen(screaming).
Him: Why are u making noise now, ara oko(bush woman).Just now, you are the first person we are telling. It is a pity you can' t be the best man but when the boys are prostrating for her parents you will sure join us now.
Temmy: you are sick, abeg give phone to Dee jare.

This morning my best friend then sent a text: You know that you are my life time addiction,we have come a long way, I know when you are happy and I know when you are trying hard to be happy. Give O.A another chance. He is truly sorry and you know it. I love you. P.S He loves you more.

To answer your questions: Ex picked up and I have apologised to him. He sent an SMS this morning: your best friends are getting married in June. What are you, I mean what are we waiting for?

I replied: your best friend.
He replied: I will tell him to propose to his girlfriend tonight. lol.

Maybe This Is Why I Am Who I Am:

Your Birthdate: December 2

You're so intuitive, it's like you have a sixth, seventh, and eighth sense.You connect with others freely and easily - and you tend to have many best friends.Warm and caring, it's hard for you to close your heart to anyone.Affection is like air for you - you need to give and receive it to survive.
Your strength: Your universal compassion
Your weakness: Your unpredictable mood swings (so damn right)
Your power color: Mauve ( what is that)
Your power symbol: Butterfly (well, i don't really like 'em.)
Your power month: February

It Is A New Month

Dear Daddy,

I thank you for a new month.
The beginning of new things in my life. The beginning of greater heights and hope of expanding me beyond the coast I am right now.

Daddy, I thank you for keeping me safe for the past 31 days, I thank you for forgiving my sins, I thank you for loving me unconditionally, I thank you for being the rock that I have been leaning on, I thank you for the things that you are still going to do for me this year and most especially this February. Thank you Jesus.

May I now proceed to the things that are very urgent daddy?

1. I need another job.
2. Speak to my parents so that they will encourage me in doing the course I have always wanted to do(which they both don't particularly like). I need him to pay the £13,500 for the course. As a matter of fact this is the most important prayer point.
3. Make my sister's wedding a success and her marriage a greater success.
4. My cousin has been married for 8 years without a child, Lord please hear her prayers.
5.All my single friends are not giving me peace o, T.A, B.T,E.A, L.O, and F.A, father they are all knocking on 30 please grant the desires of their hearts.
6. Teach me and help me to make the best decision regarding my issue with O.A
7. Grant me favour with men.
8. Protect me, my family and friends(blog friends too) in this new month.

Father, give me the grace to love you more, to study your words more, and take faithlessness away from my life. Thank you for answered prayers in Jesus mighty name.

Now, I am very sure I am starting February on a good note. Watch out for many posts that will be full of my testimonies to God.

Meanwhile, that VERA of a girl she is trying me o. You know she nearly caused a fight between CALABAR GAL and I. Thank God that the love that we share is unbreakable. Vera said I should tell the whole world if Ex cheated with a calabar babe or note. Well, yeah, she is from Akwa Ibom! Does that make you happy VERA????????

I know she has done jazz sef, because since i shouted on Ex on the phone he has not picked up my calls. BELLE please help me. What do I have to do now to reconcile with an old friend?? Sob Sob, see where my temper landed me.

Went to ORO's blog, I thought the go and marry thing is for women alone.
Every one now seems to be having a crush on a fellow blogger. I officially announce that I have a PERFECT CRUSH on TUNDE. He knows. I have been stalking his blog and he has refused to update.

My baby is not picking up my calls o. What do I do?

Ehen, I was going to forget sef. The Ibidapo's wedding pictures. The pictures are quite much o.(just thought to warn you).
