The Last day of 2014

An hour ago, I walked into my sister in law’s room. Fireworks and bangers were on her bed. She was all dressed in black. I was confused. She was getting ready for the New Year fireworks. Apparently, it is a tradition for her. The weird thing……I have been complaining to her ALL DAY how noisy it will be at 12 a.m….how the noise will interrupt me and my Beebee’s sleep. I complained ALL DAY, only to find her to be part of the conspiracy to ruin my beautiful sleep. Continue reading

Merry Birthday to My BEEBEE

It is a year already
And what a year it has been
It is only fitting that my 100th post is dedicated to my boss, my madam , my beebee
Christmas day as a child used to be all about the hampers,
Then later about which neighbor would bring Christmas rice after eating our sallah rice,
Then hoping I don’t get too much broadcast messages……
For the first time Christmas day is truly special to me as it is the day my baby was born.
My little Beebee, my angel, my orobo bobo, the one destined to raise my BP before 30.
I love you so much. You are totally amazing and a blessing to me.
Here is to a merry birthday to my Mariam Nabeeha Oluwatofumni Pereira.

The Trials of Fatimah- the struggles of an orobo Part 6

Sorry, I had to pause the story for a while. Some wise guy was posting my story on his blog under the title “The fat diaries of kike’ (not a bad title). So I patiently put it on hold so and I cheerfully waited to see what he would post next. His readers were on his case anxiously awaiting the next episode. I kept commenting asking for the next episode on every single article he posted (I think i have a slightly sadistic side. hehehe). Anyways, I am bored with that now, so i am going to continue. I realise it is hard to control content on the web, so i am not going to make a big deal about it………..yet) Meanwhile 99th Posts. HUrrraaayyyyyy!!!!!!!!!!!! Continue reading

The bridesmaid specialist is now the bride

Hello people. Remember I posted an article a lifetime ago about how my sister was always asked to be a bridesmaid and I never was…..almost never was. read that HERE . I am excited to announce that the bridesmaid specialist is now the bride.. hurray. This weekend, a wise wise young guy took another of the Idrisu girl as a wife. (We Idrisu girls are very special with a heart of gold…. though I like to think that mine is more of titanium mixed with a little platinum with just a hint of………..what was I again?)

Ahaaa the wedding….Thanks to our relocation which was very timely, I was able to attend the ceremony. Considering how vain I am, I was determined to look fabulous to all the aunties and uncles who had not seen me in years. I have worked relatively hard all year to lose the baby weight and I was a few kg shy of my ultimate goal but alas! I try if I do say so myself. Continue reading
