All these, I will not do, for you.
I checked my phone yet again, 12:25 PM. I’ve been sitting here in the bus for almost two hours now – no wonder why my stomach’s growling. I should have eaten that sandwich before I left, too late now. “Emergency calls only”, my stupid supposedly “smart phone” flashed at me just as I examined the… Continue reading Palm Trees and Beaches
I just got welcomed to The Sisterhood of the World! I can’t believe that after a few months into blogging, I received another bloggers’ award. Whoa. I sincerely didn’t think that people would stumble into this blog, moreover express appreciation through the form of a nomination to an award. Let me thank Chioma from livehomeandaway.wordpress.com… Continue reading Sisterhood
