Recap...My winter in England

Ha, Eyin temi, Please don't be mad at my MIA'ness! As soon as I got back from England, I had just a few days to chill with Baby boy and the hubster before I had to zoom back to work and believe me my January Schedule was CRAZY!!! I have been working 5.30am- 8.30pm 6 days a week and on the
sixth day sef, I was working through the day and overnight and just had the rest of the day after my nightshift off! For 4 weeks! Today was my last day of this crazy shift and I just got home from working overnight. Praise God, they wanted to eat me but God forbade it! Neway, lets leave that rahun rahun aside O'jere!.. I have missed blogging men! There is so much I want to share but I will lay it on you bit by bit!

Highlights from Dec trip to London

1) True friends are priceless! I hadn't physically seen my peeps there in years and we carried on as if, we just saw each other yesterday. We didn't miss a beat...Sharing a bed, eating off each other's plates and making plans for more hook ups.

A thousand cups of wine do not suffice when true friends meet - Chinese proverb
(Disclaimer: I love the concept of this pic and this girl's smile but as always, I am not the one in the pics I post.)

2) A wedding ring means NOTHING! A wedding band is only as important as you make it out to be. If you "useless it", peeps, guys included, will useless it as well.

Tossing it In

Went to a party with my girls and was on the floor breaking it down, when Mr Man comes to yarn into my ear. I told him I was here on vaycay and after flashing the ring, he told me how "lucky" I was to have a hubby who "lets" me out the door let alone out of the country. I guess it was a compliment in a reverse The hubster isn't lucky...he's secure. Big difference!

3)There is nothing sexier than being "out the game"


There is something exhilarating about dressing up to the nines and going out with the girls without having to bother about who's looking at me or trying to catch the eye of some dude. Just going out with a secured heart and having fun is priceless. My trip was all about ME! and having fun.

4)You are never on vaycay with God. I went to my girl's bridal shower and being the married woman in the room, the MC asked me to give my girl some advice....uh ooh, who opened the tap? Men after giving them a taste of what God has taught me in my marriage, it turned into nearly 2hrs of Q n A.

slumber party 105

I had girls asking me about sex, the in-laws, wether to share an acct with the hubby, infidelity and so on! It turned into a Inthemidstofher live session and to be honest... I loved it. You know I love all things marriage and God!

5)The Hubter was sometimes, most of the times, 99% right.
I really did need to get away and I came back refreshed and ready to get back on this roller coaster.


Thanks to FaceTime, I got to see and talk to Babyboy and the hubster EVERYDAY; so I didn't miss them as bad. Hubby promises I can "leave"(LOL) the country once a year and I am already looking forward to it! There's Australia, Dubai, India, Japan, Botswana....and the WORLD!
