      @Pretty girl…. you just reminded me of how I used to lust after Naija holidays back when I lived in Scotland. My beautiful Scotland that won’t allow even my Easter to be great.
      Only Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day are statutory holidays…. even when our English neighbors are having one bank holiday or another, na lie oh…not us. Imagine the rough play!

      Now I’m in Naija, the land flowing with holiday milk and honey. The dance I’m currently doing on my chair ehn……. my colleagues never hexperrerit

    It’s so funny that when you’re in a long distance relationship as soon as you smell of a holiday, you immediately start planning how and when to go and see him. My calendar is always searching for one holiday or the other. Iv returned back to work so many times with a hand luggage in-tow that my colleagues already know me.
