It's my birthday yay!!! The year has gone by so swiftly wow where did the time go??? This past year was very eventful, thankfully more highs than lows. I would say it was a good year and I have so much to be thankful for. The joy, the excitement, life, new life, new beginnings, lessons learnt. My absolutely adorable nephew was born! Definitely the highlight of my year. There were beautiful beginnings, and unfortunately some sad endings. When all is done, love and compassion trumps everything else. There are always extras that we wish and hope for but we must never forget to appreciate what we have and what we are now.I am truly thankful. I am thankful for life, for good health, for family, good friends, and LOVE.

I pray for peace and progress in Nigeria. It is possibly if only we are willing.

 I am ever so grateful that I am still here, still standing and looking forward to the next 365 xx

Adieu Madiba

The news broke last night (Dec 5th 2013) that the great Nelson Mandela had passed on and the news was greeted with so much tributes. I wonder how many of our "leaders" would enjoy such in the event of their passing.

Madiba lived a truly fulfilled life. A man who was unjustly imprisoned for 27 years and on his release harboured no apparent bitterness or animosity for those who caused his suffering. Such a person in my opinion has got to be a saint. He lived and fought for humanity.

In the words of the US president Barrack Obama, "let us praise and give thanks for the fact that Nelson Mandela lived - a man who took history in his hands and bent the arc of the moral universe towards justice.

 Journey on great one, I am indeed honoured and grateful to have shared this world with you. May your beautiful soul rest in peace.

Hair Update

I took out my weave today and did a length check. I usually do so by a method called 'shingling'. This is achieved by raking gel through the hair to define curls. I know I should really measure the length using a tape or something but I really cant be bothered so here are the results before and after drying (shrinkage). Feel free to compare with older photos. See pictures after the cut.

I have just read with horror, a seriously distressing story in the UK Guardian See story here and Here about a Nigerian asylum seeker
being forcefully deported. Even more distressing are some of the comments on the forum. I know we are all entitled to our own opinions but men; I am stunned all the same.

I am really torn on this matter. First and foremost, I do not believe that any human being should be treated in this manner regardless of the situation and moreso when he has not been found to be a dangerous criminal. I mean his claim may have been a bit bogus and all (Boko Haram) but it just seems to me like excessive show of power was employed against this individual. The home office went as far as getting a chartered plane and got him on board the plane using a stretcher!
