No Rain on My Parade!

Hi Lovelies,

It’s the last day of the first month of 2012, Happy New Year!!!

Yes, I know I’ve been MIA for quite awhile, there has been so many issues to deal with within every 24hours – work, state of the economy (Nigeria), traffic, personal development programme etc. I haven’t had the time to catch up with you all – my apologies.

This week started on a bright note for me, hope rising in many directions, I’m just happy for where my life is heading right now, no one, not even the rogue who made away with my phone this morning can rain on my parade! My contacts, my notes, bookmarks, devotional articles, semi-finished blog posts etc all gone.

My colleague says I’m too calm for someone who was robbed; what should I do? Some people lost their lives trying to get to work via the same route! In case you’re wondering, I’m referring to the chaos caused by hoodlums (a.k.a area boys/agbero) around the High Court (Igbosere Street) and Moloney area of Lagos Island. Kam Salem House (Police Headquarters) was only a stone through away, this didn’t stop them from shattering windscreens, burning shops, breaking bottles and attacking people with machete.

I’m alive and unhurt that’s why I have a story to write. Every other thing is secondary.

I’m going to need a few days to catch up, but I’ll be back, see you soon!

P.S: I would start receiving Valentine gifts from tomorrow, 1st February. Please send me an email or a DM on twitter if you do not have or have misplaced my mailing address. *big grin*

Sorry about your phone dear. They no fit "rain on your parade jor". Thank God you were not hurt.

LadyNgo said...

Thank God you are okay. When you look at it that way, having your phone stolen isn't as big a deal.


Praise God for your life Sis. You will not die but live to declare the works of our God! He will continue to keep you.

Your testimony will be full :)

Wow! Good to know you're ok and really happy you've refused to let them 'rain on your parade', the God that kept you will provide for you.

P.E.T. Projects said...

Toinlicious, thanks AMEN!

Che, its the first miracle of the year!

LadyNgo, actually, I realised that after close to a week of using a call-and-text-only phone. Who needs smartphones to be smart?!

LDP, how've you been?

9jaFoodie, that wont be a bad idea, all I want is Galaxy Tab 7.0Plus *wink*

@ilola, you're right, HE is the only one!


I've been good o, Sis. How's life on your end? Holla on twitter na.. lol


P.E.T. Projects said...

Didi, how's the season coming along?

HoneyDame, how's life on that side? And I think I'm back, so where are you?

Myne, yes there were hoodlums fighting for their rights of street supremacy!

NIL, true! How are the munchkins?

Okeoghene, definitely no one!

Dosh, valentine's day? Err... thank you.

Ginger thanks. Have a beautiful month

Micheal, its been ages, where have you been? Or was it me?

Luciano, porsche? Even if its on someoneelse's bill, I'll rather have the cash! I'm conservative like that!
