Happy New Month!!! Hope you all had a splendid weekend? I had a pretty good one half wishing there could be a repeat of the short holiday (if wishes were horses...).
Anyways i have been in a very happy mood because its my birthday month and there is so much to be thankful for.
My mind drifted to my primary school days when we would form a big circle break time and sing the popular song "All those that are born in January...." I am not sure i knew the correct lyrics then because i used to say " All those that are born in August stand up stand up, ariya riya roses God bless you..."Hahaaha. Whatever ariya riya meant then only God knows...LOL.Anyways, fast forward to today and thank God for my friend google, i searched childhood songs and i almost passed out from laughing; remembering the songs we used to sing then and also the correct lyrics...lol.
Well if you went to primary school in Nigeria, you would remember the following songs:
- Who stole the meat from the cooking pot, number 1 stole the meat from the cooking pot who me? Yes you, it couldn't be, then who?...lol
- Sanda lily sanda lily which i later found out was- standard living standard living...lol
- Oh my home, oh my home when shall i see my home (ireti give us food o) ...hahaha
- Old roger is dead and gone to his grave...hahahaha
and the list continues.
While I am sure the children of today would have their own moments i doubt they'll have as much fun compared to what we had then *Just Saying*
So i have tagged August my month of celebration because God has promised me there would be something to celebrate in my life everyday in this month of August.
On to my outfit of the day, i am wearing a white Oasis crop jacket with tiny bow and gold button details on the sleeves and pockets, cobalt blue skirt and my very comfy RL shoes - old.
In other news, i need a holiday badly, I honestly can't wait to go away and just rest. Excuse my slightly irritated left eye, i woke up this morning and noticed it was a bit dark, this usually happens when my body needs time out. Thankfully its not very obvious in the pictures.
Have a fabulous week ahead lovies and if there songs you remember from your childhood? Lets read them in the comment box, i am sure we would all have a good laugh.
Thanks for always reading.
