Deal or No Deal

I have a very good friend, who has a boyfriend she's been dating for a 'minute'. When they started dating....he was all over her like white on rice (like and now barely a year later he's cooled off considerably (the usual, work, other commitments...etc). No problem. A hot topic of debate for them has been marriage, they both want to get married to each other but he's not ready just yet. He wants to put a few things in place (finances....hmmm not sure what She on the other hand doesn't see why they can't put those 'things' in place together. He feels pressured. He feels they can start to take the steps towards putting those 'things' together by saving towards common goals, possibly living together...etc before they get married. She feels, if he can do all that then what's the difference they might as well be married. She's starting to feel like he wants all the benefits of the 'cow' without buying it (I've always hated that saying)

So.....thoughts? What am I to tell her?

I came home today to find kpuff her grand-dad (my dad) playing golf (nintendo wii), kpuff came 2nd (I prefer second to last...:)) with a record of +63!! I didn't even know scores came that high...hey as long as she's happy. Wii boxing on the other hand she excels at, home girl had like 7 knock outs in a

So in other news, I've had an office now for about two months, the first week I started out great, got there everyday at 8:00am, more recently I'm barely making it there by 10:00am!!! I don't know what's going on, it's like I'm stuck in a rut, I've been working on the same projects for months now and it's sooooo boring....someone please help, I need to get motivated again, quickly too. I guess it doesn't help that I'm up blogging at 1 Ok ok goodnight...

I'm in search of a new school for Kpuff, she's not due to start primary school for another 2 years or so, but most of the good schools are quite competitive (I mean they interview the kids and On the shortlist are Grange and St. Saviours Ebute Metta. I prefer St. Saviours but meeeen that commute won't be easy since we live in Ikeja. I spent the last two days collecting one admission form or the other from them it wasn't fun. She may have her interview with them on Thursday, I can't even imagine how that will go, let's hope it's a 'good' kpuff day, cause if they catch her on a bad day...we certainly will have no choice but to scratch them off our Does anyone have any other mainland school recommendations? Thoughts on Corona Gbagada? Chrisland? (I haven't heard any rave reviews about either in the last few years).

Part of the reason I stayed away from blogging for so long was that a lot was (and still is) going on in my life that I didn't want to share just yet. For one, Mr. is completely out of the picture except where it concerns Kpuff and I'm quite fine with that. It's sad though I hear about so many separated and/or distressed couples these days. What are we all doing wrong?
It's been over a year since I updated....:(. Frankly I didn't think I'll update again, but for some reason I've been thinking about blogging lately...I've really missed everyone. What's new? Does anyone still come here?...I'll do my best not to stay away for so long next time but I can't make any promises.

So, on to my favourite topic :). Kpuff is three...., can you believe it?! she's 3 years old! she's talking a lot now, as in non-stop, my mum says she's either talking, crying, singing or

Well as you can imagine, a lot has happened in the last year so I guess we have lots to discuss...:)
