HOLIDAY IS OVER!

Does anyone remember this primary school song:

'HOLIDAY IS COMING,
HOLIDAY IS COMING,
NO MORE MORNING BELLS,
NO MORE TEACHER'S WHIP,
GOODBYE TEACHER,
GOODBYE SCHOLARS,
I AM GOING HOME,
MY JOLLY HOLIDAY,
MY JOLLY HOLIDAY.

It was usually sung during the end of term when school was coming to an end. We would march ecstatically from the assembly ground into our classrooms with the song blaring from our lips as we looked forward to the xmas rice, chicken and coke!

Today am not singing 'HOLIDAY IS COMING'. The song on my lips is 'HOLIDAY IS OVER!' and am singing it with a BIG frown on my face!
Last thursday and friday were public holidays cos of the muslim celebrations. Add that to the weekend, and you see i got 4 WHOLE days of rest! I almost forgot what it felt like to wake up early to face Lagos traffic stress.
Poor me,tomorrow again its back to the bump and grind! Can a girl ask for another one week of holiday???

Tomorrow too is the D-day for mumsie's operation,. She checked into the hospital this morning. I intend to go see her later this evening and am taking her some of the delicious rice and stew i prepared this afternoon.Is somebody salivating??? Pele! Its only for my dear mummy and i can share any here. Dont worry sha, RSVP(Rice and stew very plenty) for the thanksgiving bash!

I think am beginning to yarn opata, make i begin go jare.

I go block some peeps blogs before i comot sha.

Later.

Just remember what i said to u a week ago...have faith be strong and pray for your momsi..

I pray that the operation goes smoothly and that Gods will protect and guide her thru the entire operation and recovery period. May He give her the strength to overcome all forms of negativity that may have found root in her soul and may the Lord Almighty bless you with the strength and be your mums rock through out this operation. It is well..GOD IS IN CONTROL !!
