my weekend...

Ok… am trying to make this more frequent, blogging that is.
And I’m kinda re-branding, you know – new title, new direction.
I hope it works.


Friday…

Yesterday I went clubbing with hubby and a friend. Our first stop was at Swe, and we had a swell time. I spotted MI (rapper) amidst the crowd, cute height, like you could place him on your palm and have him do a dance; and then Kel (rapper, again) was chilling at the corner and was only interrupted when her song, wa wa alright, was played. She and her crew jumped around ecstatically. She isn’t as tall as I’d thought.
The crowd was controlled, nothing reckless; and some guy fancied my friend which was cool.
The crowd waned before 2pm, so we decided to shift base. Nu grotto was next. Love the place! Club lights and all, except the DJ was wack. Felt like throwing my bottle of Malt at him!
Then my eyes became heavy at 4, and we decided to call it a day.
It was a good way to enjoy a Friday, except that I visited the loo too many times, and I couldn’t stop calling home to know how my kids (who were fast
asleep) were doing.


Saturday…

I woke up late, naturally. My friend was on the phone, talking to the guy she met at the club the night before. I chuckled. He was a rather short guy, who seemed desperate to get a woman. But she was courteous enough, and said it was ok if they hook up later in the week.
I totally ignored my children’s tantrums for ice cream, biscuits, chocolate, ribena, party, and swimming lessons; and decided to go back to bed after a heavy breakfast of yam and eggs. Got a call I had been waiting for forever; and I dreamt of me lounging in the Caribbean’s. Lol!
I’d actually wanted to spend the day with friends, but I couldn’t get my butt off the bed.
My DSTV expired earlier this morning, and I’m left with terrestrial TV for the weekend – heavens! I think this is the best time to read the rest of Toni Kan’s ‘night of a creaking bed’ and Jumoke Verissimo’s ‘I am memory’.
Hubby went off to work, friend is back to her base. I gave my Vicky – my first daughter, a spank on her bum for being extremely naughty, and continuously told Jojo – my second girl to take her thumb away from her mouth.

Tomorrow I’m having brunch with Princesa. Meanwhile, I’m watching Ebuka (Big Brother Nigeria) on NTA, Glo show. I like his cardigan!

adding you to my bloglist so i can always come back

Isi said...

WF, well... i wrote the book, printed a manuscript and called a printer. got an isbn number and voila, self-publishing is done! then work on marketing and distribution of course.
