The Story of my LIFE!!!
















Down the memory lane...

Its taken me a very long time to get back into writing...putting my thoughts into words..... People used to tell me I was good at it...well I don't know anymore how right or wrong they are...I created this blog just to compile all my memories, both good and bad, sweet and bitter, in short, its just a scribble of my glimpses from childhood and adulthood..my life so far...and of things I still remember and hold dear to my heart...and of course my current life ramblings and short comings!!!!! So here I am, trying to push my memory as far back as I can remember......

My parents and passport say I was born in Nigeria on the 31st of July or was it the 1st of August???in 19 errrr...year's not important now is it????, in the only sane hospital around....actually they did have to travel far...into the neighboring state..... The Mariassumpta Hospital, Ado-Ekiti, the hospital I think that still doesn't have a website ;). My mom wasn't healthy enough to take care of me during the initial days, so I was told..... I was my Daddy's girl right from the very start!!!!

My mom used to complain to me that I was always stuck to my dad... When he was away at work I'd be glum and I'd cheer up only after hearing his voice... Mom used to mix milk for me with sugar...for her baby... but well...I wasn't sooo comfy with sweet milk....whereas Dad never had the patience to add sugar to my milk..he just about managed to heat it up and put it in the bottle and feed me and I was supposedly the happiest baby in the world....Given a chance my mom still complains about that to me or to anyone who knows me and my dad... Dad always gives in to my whims and wants....he somehow always managed to give me the comfortable life he never had during his childhood....I'd say he was and is the perfect daddy...not because he showered me with comfort and provided for me...but because he always saw the lighter side of everything..and he was the best friend any dad could ever be... if he hurts or teases me with words...I still remember him say "Gooch, Take it in the lighter vein..." Well GOOCH, that was my nickname my dad used for me.... And oh I forgot to mention my Nigerian name... "Bosede"cos I was born on a Sunday...!!!!!

More on the memories later.....
