Freedom Friday


Freedom Board

Do I always have to do this every Friday? Keep wondering what to say?

It’s a FREEDOM DAY…so being stuck should be a non-issue as anything I say is mine to defend… or let’s say enjoy!

Well, I’m loving the Freedom Friday movement with Yvonne taking it to another level. I enjoyed her post so much that I reblogged it.

Actually that would be the first time I’m reblogging…yippee! Double Hi-five baby.


Tomorrow happens to be my house-keeper’s birthday and I’m beside myself with ‘crazy’ ideas of what I will do or would love to do. In all, I’m praying I ignore/condone her Idiosyncrasies and just enjoy her for herself. Whatever the case. It’s gonna be a lovely day…lovely day…lovely day. I’m singing. LOL. She has no idea what I have in store for her. Simply gorgeous (like my son would say).

And this is what transpired between Veda and I. Come, let’s view the world “Through Veda’s Eyes”.

Today, someone called me to say thank you for a gift I sent, Sunshine was around and enquired “Honi (that’s what she calls me), who was that?”
“A *toaster”, I replied.
“Ok, give me the phone”, she demanded…dialled and said, “Police, please come and arrest this boy that called my aunty ok!”

Her father returned and she wouldn’t welcome him back. So he declares that he’ll go eat Chinese with her brother Karan (Sweetheart), the tears roll down her eyes…the more her father taunts and the more they cascade as if falling from a fountain. But still she wouldn’t greet him. Of course she later made up with him quickly so she won’t be left out, and he didn’t go out after all.

I caught a cold the previous night and didn’t let Sunshine know. When I got back from work, she was sneezing so I told her not to allow her cold affect me. She quietly walked towards me, pulled my face close to hers and tried to sneeze again (so we’ll share the pain!).

*Toaster – Nigerian parlance for someone asking another out

So what are you being FREE about this Friday…let’s join in the fun!
