I am a carefree WYSI:WYG kind of person. I am married to my Lawyerman, have 3 kids, (one biological, one a present from my late sister and one a present from my husband). I am a full time law student, an orphan and a sister to 4 wonderful sisters. I am extremely trusting and naive. I don’t automatically think people will mess up. I let everyone in. And hope they don’t mess up.
In my spare time, I love to just gist and gist. I also love watching rubbish Yoruba films on Youtube. I used to love reading novels in my previous life before I started my full time law course. But not anymore. I have been reading a novel called Shantaram for more than a year now and have not been able to finish it. I am a homegirl ( not in a yo homey! way though), I love staying in, with a tub of Ben and Jerry’s, maybe with some biscuits, maybe some Marks and Spencer cheesecake and Chinese food ordered in. I don’t know if you have sensed this but if you have not, I love dessert. Actually, scratch that, I love food with special emphasis on dessert.
I also love to sing although I must admit that not being in a choir has made my voice less delectable. My son, however thinks that my voice is good enough for me to go on X Factor. My son also thinks that if I have not made money by the age of 50, I should go on a TV quiz show. I have a head for trivia and current affairs. But I’m extremely forgetful in my personal life. I do not have the foggiest idea about football but I support Chelsea. Because my son supports them and it is more fun to pit against my husband who, like most Nigerians, supports that club managed by Arsene Wenger, the famous ‘specialist in losing’.
I am a mishmash of genes from my parents. I inherited my mother’s tendency to be fat and my father’s big bones. Had I inherited my mum’s small bones and my dad’s slim build, I would have been bae. But I make do with what I have. In my list of things that I wish for, along with world peace and end to famine, is slim waist for me.
Follow me on my blogging journey and we will get to know each other better. In the words of the late great Jim Reeves, welcome to my world.
