My life and its new turn

I was not warned that there would come a time when I would have so much to blog about but no time to blog. I never knew too that a time would come that I would keep postponing my blog rounds and that I would eventually not meet up! I am in that stage right now.


I am rounding up with my study fellowship in London but even the rounding up is now getting busier as I am attending Mo Ibrahim Foundation - LSE Global Governance Workshop this whole week. I leave for Nigeria at the end of March to rest at home for a week or so before moving to Mali for my 6 Months attachment with ECOSAP- ECOWAS Small Arms Control Programme. I look forward to this adventure which I will undertake by road with hubby but I need to rest for at least a week! I have missed my hubby, my cats and my friends and I can't wait to see them! I will sure miss London as well.


My academic journey in London has being enthralling as well as challenging but in all, it has being a journey of total transformation and the knowledge gained has being much more than expected. This is a total package study and I am glad I was chosen! I always want to talk more on what this program meant for me and all of us that are so interested in transforming our continent, but my brain is full of activities these days that I just keep providing a few details. Watch out though for when the full details will start rolling in!!! I went to London Eye with friends on Saturday and I did enjoy the ride - just to share something completely unacademic. And I was up there somewhere in the picture below!

Well done girl...I'm glad you made time to meet up in London amidst your busy schedule. I realised just how far you've gone doing what you love doing when I discovered you know George Ashiru. You guys do so much for our country and I can only pray that God raise up more people like you. I planned on dropping by VOAR for a chat with you but these past weeks have been extremely busy for me and I couldn't. Hopefully we'll catch up soon and somehow. God bless

Hey, Standtall:

Even though I only drop by every now and then since your time for blogging has fallen off, I am amazed when you post at all that you have done in a short time and how far you have traveled.

I do believe you are going somewhere remarkable in this life. Enjoy your time at home with hubby and give those cats a scritch for me.
