I'm back! Home was a blast
so went to my former workplace and saw former colleagues kinda cool, gave my aunts gifts I had gotten them. the next day my grandma and more aunts arrived it was grand, I seem top have matured a bit more in their esteem yay! and Gogo (gran) was ecstatic over her blanket and shoes and the doek (head scarf thing) which I got her!!! Saturday i spent mostly at home and went and dance stepsi.e the dance routines for the bridal party coz the grooms-men were absent for practice, went home and lazed with ma. Sunday got up went to church in my new African outfit... head covered of course and it was a blast meeting everyone, sang in the choir... ah how i miss Sonah sometimes... saw Taf in his 'deacon' clothes which my mom and half the neighbourhood think is satanic.. can't blame them he ain't a deacon and he wears black flowing robes... then he comes over to my house chats a bit and asks where I have been all his life..mmm.. and I go home prepare lunch and stuff for the mothers that's gogo and my mum and her sisters... drive over to my cousins place do the bride's maid and brides make-up change into my other new African attire drive like a maniac back home because my mom is freaking out for she baked the cake and it has to go to the venue and I have her car... get to the wedding and finishing putting on my contacts and shoe and make-up in the bathroom, go greet everyone and take photos for mom and dance steps which i learnt the day before because they were a grooms-man short! collect gifts and right them down, snap the band on my shoe go home with my feet killing me and give the shoes to del-del... all in all a good weekend!
I did learn something though... the family you marry into matters!!!! 'nuf said!
