7 Things Me-Me

I got tagged by Tayo to do the 7 weird things you dont know about me post, even though he knows I have done this meme before!!! Well here are another 7 things that you don't know about me....i wouldn't call them weird, because I don't think they

1. I have a 'balcony'. In my mind, it is this beautiful place I go to, to reflect on things and think of things. Basically, the whole 'balcony' thing started when we moved into a new house back in nigeria, I got to choose the room with the only balcony in the whole house, it was upstairs, with the high walls around the house, and I would go to the balcony, and stare out into the world, feeling like a princess waiting to be rescued :) I would dream of what I wanted my future to look like, about my Prince Charming and I would pray to God and talk to him about stuff, I was about 8 or 9. Now that I'm grown and moved out of the house and the country, I often go back to my 'balcony', back to that little girl with her dreams, and I smile....

2. I don't have any favourite music, food, colours and such because I believe variety really is the spice of life. There are toooooo many beautiful and wonderful choices to choose from, why would I restrict myself to one? Besides, I get bored quite easily :)

3. I still don't know how to drive :)

4. My grandmother means the world to me! I love her so so so so so so much. Thing is, I look at her, and she is the closest to the perfect human being. I have never seen her get angry and she gives and gives and gives and gives. I get so emotional thinking about her, thinking about all the things I would love to do for her and all the things she deserves, I get so emotional when I think of the fact that I havent seen her in close to 2 years and how time is just flying by, although I know most definitely she will be at my wedding. I have specially requested that from God, so God-willing. She is such a beautiful woman inside and out with a gorgeous smile. She is beautiful and totally unselfish. I LOVE HER SO MUCH!

5. I love custard and cake, preferably with the custard made from scratch (none of these ready to go tinned ones)...of which I can make both of them from scratch...gosh my kids cannot be obese!!!! Oh and advice to people who cook, don't use water in making your custard, it just spoils it, it's a 'nigerian thing' to use water, use fresh milk if you can to mix the whole thing.

6. When I was about 9 or 10 years old, I would wear a red mini skirt and a red tank top, wear red heels, probably my mum's, put Chris De Burgh's 'Lady in Red' in the music player, close my eyes and dance away...I would dream of being in an empty room, standing in the middle, where the spotlight is on me and my faceless Prince Charming, while the song would be his thoughts in his head while he danced with me or it would simply be Chris playing on the grand piano, singing in the background, while i danced by myself :) yea i know, i was only 10..but then, I've always been a dreamer lol. Every now and then I still have the desire to dance to the song.. and of course I'd have to shop for my red dress first ;) lol

7. I am looking forward to the day I see my Father, Jesus and Holy Spirit. This doesn't mean I will not live the full life God has promised, I just can't wait to be in my Father's arms, gosh I'm going to cause a queue, and how beautiful Jesus is, and hug my precious Holy Spirit. Also I have so many questions to ask the saints and apostles, like Paul and Jonah (how'd it feel to be in the shark's tummy for 3 days? were you smelling when you got out?) and Peter (how'd it feel walking on water, then sinking?????!!!) Gosh it's going to be so excitingggggg!!! Make sure you make it there!

I tag the first 7 bloggers to comment on this post.

Have a nice week ahead.
