Hi guys,
This is going to be a really short one....
Your girl has been down for weeks and I had malaria and then chicken pox! Would you believe it? At my age? Man, this thing is no respector of persons oh! I was so ill....
It started with the malaria and that I could handle.... I mean, I'm a Nigerian living in Nigeria and all.. I must have had it at least 15 times in my life.. then these blisters started to appear all over my body....

I thought it was a case of misdirected pimples of some sort! Next thing I know, it's all over my face and back, legs, arms, everywhere! It was official! I had to be quarantined.. I couldn't even see my daughter or hubby for fear of passing it on and I was forced to bathe with the loathsome IZAL and rub Calamine Lotion within every inch of my body! God... I smelled and looked awful!

So here I am now guys... same 'ol NYEMONI but with some scars to show for my date with chickenpox! I'm sorry I've been away but will do my best to keep blogging...
Next week, I'm off to Ghana for a week or so and then I will be back fully.... Many thanks to Calabargal and the Overwhelmedone for missing me.. I missed y'all too but I was so outta touch with everything! I have some much work to do now.. you know getting back to reading the previous blog entries of y'all......

Phew! I have no more words at this time.... Have a fun weekend y'all!
