It’s been almost 3 years since i last posted. Wow! that was a quick 3 years lol It only just hit me it’s been that long..re-read the posts i wrote back then and it felt as if i was reading about someone else.Damn, time changes us big time…i am definately not that Twaddlie anymore, i have grown. One of these fine days i will start blogging again, mojo is slowly creeping back and things have changed for me in a very good way.Am good now, not that i haven’t been since 08′ but..its been a very busy 3 years lol..plus zero mojo. It’s good, am happy where am at now.So yeah, i will be back. Blogsphere has been missed !
The look. November 6, 2008
Sawa ! okay am sorry lol i do realise it has been five months since my last post but hey i can explain !
See, there’s this sweet thang in my presence that i just wanna eat up ! okay thats a bit dramatic..lol i mean woiye she just gives me that look and am all mellow, i really can’t help it. I try ! after hours of rocking and singing and feeding and the whole shabang that will successfully give me at least a good half hour to myself in the morning, well at least before sweetness opens up her lungs in a cry that would convince anyone she is practically starving..that half hour is my gift from God- i know ! trust me, gals when/if you have a newborn, you will agree with me..half an hour is alot!
So anyway i need to do everything i want for the morning in that half hour..then back to the feed-change-rock-cuddle-sing to routine until the next little slot in the afte. Now its either i make big bkfast and chill out, take a luxury shower, clean up house, stare at sleeping beauty or sit at kompiyuta and browse blogs.
Me, i am a woman (lol like duh!) and because women have the great ability to multitask, i therefore usually grab quick bkfast and sit at kompiyuta having my bkfast with sleeping beauty strategically placed within ‘staring level’..and it seems to work for me. Problem is, because i have such a short time, i can only : click on link ( bite bread ) , scroll down page reading ( sip tea ) stare at sweetness for a sec and then click anaa link ! no time to comment, no time to sit there and reflect after reading your post ! certainly no time for me to post..kwanza the many times i have tried, man, it’s like she knows coz she gives me the look.That look that says ‘woiiiiiiiyeeeeeee’..the look that seems to tell me’ don’t you dare woman!’ and i just can’t resist so down coz the screen and yet again, i am prisoner to her look. lol
Look at that cute ,woishe-looking, pick-me-up, i want u look ! and how does she wake up looking so fwyne ? no ‘mathogos’ or whatever they’re called- that uchafu at the corner of your eyes when you wake up..no drooling at corner of mouth..lol she’s just like her mummy on waking up- fresh and lovely like the morning daisy hahaha
aarrrggghh, I will soon come up with a look of my own that tells her ‘woiyeee kamoja tu ‘..a ka small post like this.
this is not the end..i shall be back !

This time last year.. January 24, 2008
At this time last year, i was in my flat studying for end of semester exams.. i had my study desk with me, i had my books with me and i had some sort of motivation to actually read them. Now, i do want to succeed in this life, i do want to get my credentials at the end of it all and i do want to make loads of money..we all do..but at this ver time last year..this yearning to succeed was stronger 100 fold.
At this time last year, i wasn’t an aunty yet (again) and my 20 year old cousin was not a mummy..infact at this time last year, she was happily learning the romantic french language at the Ecole de Langues and touring Europe with her rich French Family who were hosting her.
At this time last year, the word relationship and commitment meant something totally different.My hobbies were well exploited,infact i had a fabulous opportunity to assist one of my menteurs in the hobby section set up his collection in a gallery in Florence, Italy. Wow, at this time last year, i had vision, saw my dreams begin to unfold, i saw opportunity knock not once but quite a number of times. At this time last year, i was thinking of starting this blog as well.
At this time last year, I weighed at least 8 kgs heavier, wore clothes two sizes up and couldn’t be bothered to wear mascara or whatever.At this time last year, My country was at peace and my Gouvernment at ease..my tribesmen and others’ tribes worked together and schooled together. At this time last year, my Church was a Holy place, a refuge and the safest place in the land.
At this time, in this year..nothing is the same..my study desk i do not have, it is property to another lucky soul..my books i have though the motivation is no more..my hobbies are still hobbies though the opportunity stopped knocking.. i am not jumping into planes and trains to set up exhibitions and i am not uuuuu–aaahhing at my progress..i am not passionately swaying to the rythm of Salsa every Wednesday and Sunday without fail and i am not spending my Saturday afternoons at the pool 5 minutes from my flat and my evenings with friends at the Theater listening to ‘L’Ochestre Nationale de Lille’.
I still yearn to make loads of money though my ideas aren’t the same as yester-year’s, infact they are quite the opposite from what i once held onto.
At this time,in this year, the words relationship and commitment actually do have meaning in my life, infact at this time, in this year, my commitment to Mr. Man actually makes me happy.I have new friends that i had not last year..i even have clothes that i had not last year seeing how i lost the 8 kgs and dress in two sizes smaller.
This time this year, i have the same smile if not brighter, the same love for my family nomatter what, the same love for my friends both those i left behind and the ones i met and bonded with.I have this time, this year a stronger determination to succeed in school even when the desk lacks, the books are scarce and the motivation quite low..yes, determination and motivation work hand in hand BUT..where one lacks and the other prevails, there’s bound to be some sort of uplift of the other (if that makes sense)…
This time this year, 20 year old cousin is the proud mother of 6month old Zara, and is touring not europe but crossed the seas and is happily watching over my lil’ princess.Am still trying to locate a desent salsa club and though my other passion has to take a long break, am positive soon i’ll have what i need and a whole of opportunity again to make it flourish.
This time this year, my country is not at peace, my church and those of others is not the refuge it once was.My Gouvernment is not offering the Nation healing and my countrymen have no more love for each other.
God remains the same and so does His love..My Faith remains the same.
This was just me viewing things from outside the box lol whatever that means..i am not sure if what i am this time this year is what i’ll be this time next year..we all grow physically lol ..i might be 15 kgs heavier (God forbid)..but hey, am sure this time next year, i’ll have grown yet again in mind, spirit, love, and in strength.
Well at least one thing’s for sure, this time this year, just like this time last year, i always strive to be better than i was yesterday..to love deeper than i did yesterday..to think bigger than i did yesterday, to laugh harder and to worry less.
Wohoooooo December 28, 2007
