9:42 am, I dropped it with a thud as I read the last paragraph, wondering why such a beautiful story should end up like this?! I poured so much accolades on it  here ... now I am hurting!

It all started from Chapter 51 ... I closed the book because I was afraid to know what will happen ... but curiosity got the better part of me, so I continued reading albeit reluctantly, hoping against hope it was not going towards the direction of my thoughts ... eventually page 588 confirmed my fears!

IT COULD NEVER BE MORE TRUER! ... A DIFFERENT KIND OF PERSPECTIVE. I eagerly ripped open the carton to bring it out. When I got to chapter 2, I paused. WAIT O! This is not what I think is going to happen? HMM  ... ok! I continued reading because what she was saying, could never be more truer...

I don't know if you ladies remember your mothers quarreling with you, when you refuse to do chores or cook, and telling you something like this; ' Nah you sabi o! If you like don't learn how to do all these things, nobody go help you when you get to your husband's house! I won't be there!' Well women that grew up from the 70's-90's might remember, if the youngies don't. This is because, ladies back then, were trained and prepared for wifely roles in future.

Choosing colours for chairs, curtains, bedspreads and walls are important when you have children. Let me disgress here a bit; Remember far back in the 80's-90's any girl that wears red, black and brown under wear was considered dirty? Even ladies were expected to use white under wear during the monthly flow! Now, I can barely see white underwears in the malls! I wonder if some still have the same old mentality?

My guys, please, is it proper for a married woman to be asking an unrelated married man for financial help? A lady connected  on FB with a secondary school mate of hers after many years. Several weeks, she came up with a sob story,needing about 100k! This pissed off the married man, that he immediately blocked her!

Hello, my guys. I have been taking a look at different creches to put my son. I wanted a creche that they also teach a little. You know in Nigeria, he will start nursery school at 2 years, but here, a child must be 4 before he starts pre-school. I have another appointment by 10:00am this morning sef!  I am also job hunting ...

'Why are you on your fours cleaning, don't you have a mop?' A friend asked this question when she came in and saw me cleaning the floor with towel. 'I do! But whenever I want to do thorough cleaning, I do it the old fashioned way.' The basic house chores are bed making,  washing the bathroom, mopping the floors,  sweeping all rooms, washing the dishes, laundry and dusting. There is a difference between sweeping and swe-ep-ing! One can use a broom and quickly run it on the surface of the floor to remove any dirt on it. That is sweeping. One can use the same broom and put underneath heavy objects to clean, move items to clean behind it, and lift up things from the floor to remove dirt, that is called swe-ep-ing! Which I will refer to as detailed cleaning.
