This is a major rant!!! I'm tired of this country sha, I no go lie!!!!!!!!

On Friday last week on my way home from work, I stopped by at a filling station on the Lekki-Ajah Expressway to fill my car's tank with petrol in preparation for this week as is my usual tradition. I bought the petrol and drove home.....

My car is relatively new and I have never had cause to visit the mechanic since I bought it except to service it. My Mr. checks the oil and water on my behalf regularly so I never need to open the bonnet myself and the batteries have been OK since.. Imagine my surprise when I started the car on Monday morning and it refused to start! I checked the battery indicator on the dashboard display and saw everything looked OK but the car just wouldn't start!

Being that the car is a manual car with the a, b and c (accelerator, brake and clutch) I asked my maiguard and some other guys around my neighbourhood to push the car while I drove, thinking that would jump start things and I would be on my luck! I had spent about 30 minutes doing this and realized I had to move on in order to arrive early at work. Now my hubby left the house before was done packing my stuff up so I had to find my way to work....

On getting to the office, I was surprised to see only my MD and supervisors cars...when I got in I found out that my other boss had the same problem...his started on Sunday when he was on his way to church and our Financial controller realized her car wouldn't start that morning as well....My mechanic went to my house about an hour later and told me my fuel pump was bad....My 2 other bosses took their cars to Briscoe Ford (company cars) and their drivers were told the fuel pumps were bad.....Unlikely coincidence eh?

Yesterday, my hubby called me to say 8 of the Toyota Corolla's in his company car pool had packed up and the problem? You guessed right! My sisters hubby also told her a number of cars in his company's pool had THE VERY SAME PROBLEM! FUEL PUMP!

Now I've been hearing this rumour that the fuel being distributed around Lagos is of bad quality....I wonder why the regulatory bodies did not discover this? Is there no means of checking that the petroleum products that get distributed are quality controlled?

I really am tired of the seeming lack of control in Nigeria, most anyone can get away with anything! now I'm quite skeptical about mentioning the name of the gas station from where I bought the petrol although my M.D says name them and shame them....anyway, I'd advise everyone to keep their ears to the ground before purchasing petroleum products....a word is enough for the wise!

I have been forced to update by members of my blogfam....lemme think, lemme think...This update shall be based upon questions I have been asked by my blogfam and shall on the whole have no direction per say...

My pregnancy is going very well by God's grace, I still have no clue as to the sex of the baby is let's just say fear no let me actually tried to check 2 weeks ago and the baby kept its legs crossed the entire amount of prodding and poking was sufficient to move the baby from it's position and I just had to leave...I would go for another scan in two weeks so let's keep our fingers crossed!

Still on the subject of the baby's sex, I would obviously like this baby to be a boy 'cos I already have a daughter but my hubby says 'girl or boy, this one is the last one unless you want to turn yourself into a baby factory... I have always - subliminally at least- wanted to have three so I reckon I shall trick my way to the third one i.e. if i haven't changed my mind by then....

Moving on to valentines was my valentines' day spent? I spent the working part of the day at into mad traffic at Kofo Abayomi Street on my way home from work and spent about 2 hours+ before I got to Mobil at Lekki Expressway...from there on it was a breeze getting to Lekki but my hubby who had been waiting for me at some 'joint' got tired of waiting and called to say we should meet at home...I wasn't disappointed in the least as I already had a headache plus my left leg was tired from pressing down on the clutch. So that is the end of that story...

My afrobabe asked me how it went the first time...My question is first time doing what? I have a lot of first time stories:

First day in school (a distant memory)
First fight
First grown up party I went to
First time I blogged
First time I kissed
First time I had sex
First time I had a baby

Now I'm going to pick the one that I feel like blogging about so there!


I was in the University (wouldyoubelieveit?!) and there was this guy who was soooo into didn't like him or hate me he was just there. He'd asked me to be his girl and there I was wondering, 'Am I supposed to say Yes to this or just let things flow?...' anyway we went on our merry way and on some days I acted like his girlfriend and allowed him hold my hand or put his arm on my shoulders in public (that was eons ago, when an 18 year old acted 18, not these days, with 18 year olds acting 30!) and on other days I acted like I didn't know him.....It was quite funny in the beginning cos we had yet to define what we were doing...I was playing hard to get and he was feeling like a chaser....anyway at some point it was clear that we were officially dating or going out as we liked to call it and he'd been trying to kiss me for a while....a really really long while.......

One day anyhow we had been in his room chatting about everything and nothing and I just knew he was going to kiss me...looking back, I think I wanted him to kiss me cos I wanted to know what it felt like......anyway, he acted like he was trying to get something out of my hair and I played along... It was so clumsy and awkward and silly! I felt like YIKES! Ewww someone Else's saliva in my mouth!, all in all, I didn't have an earth-shattering, toe curling, mind blowing kiss 1st time around....that's the first time experience I'm willing to share for now so it will just have to do!
