My only surviving grandparent, my paternal grandmother died early yesterday morning. Very sad day for me and my family especially my dad. She was barely seventy. She was fun; had an enviable sense of humour. She just woke up that morning, came out of the house to greet the neighbours, told her house help to get some medication for her at a nearby chemist, went into her room and slept.....May her gentle soul rest in peace, Amen.
Have you ever wondered why some people would make promises and when they can’t fulfil them, they run? This childhood friend of mine called me up a few days to my birthday and told me he was going to get me a surprise gift. He made me give him all the necessary information to mail the package. He was talking like the gift was something big. My birthday came and went and after about ten days without hearing from him, I called his mobile. It rang and he didn’t pick the call. I was just calling to check up on him but of course, he was avoiding me. I wasn’t even expecting anything from this guy. I didn’t even know he knew my birthday. Imagine that. If you tell someone that you were going to do something for them and found out that you couldn’t, just tell the person and apologise. What I want to know is how long he is going to keep avoiding me. People can be funny.
At a nail studio yesterday, I saw a lady paint her toenails different colours. She was light skinned and it looked so beautiful on her. But I know that I am not that daring. I would probably wear work shoes till I change the nail polish. Has any of you tried that?
Have yourselves a great weekend.
