I Need A Friend In The United States

Hi Aunt. Eya,
Congratulations on your one year anniversary and your successful blog at such a short interval.
I was reading the viewership stats you posted and I noticed that since the second highest clicks came from the US maybe I could use your help.

I recently moved to the United States a short while ago and even though I'm enjoying my stay I get

I Can't Do This Anymore

I think I'm going to land in a depressioncentre very soon. Am sorry am writing in jumbles but killing myself has never been more tempting.

I don't have peace. All I get is hostility everyday. I took the job and despite my employer's  flexibility


FREE AIRTIME ON ANY NETWORKI didn't expect that we'd have sponsors at our First Anniversary Giveaway cos I felt it's too young and early to start looking for Giveaway Sponsors. Yesterday, after searching Google and reading so much on Giveaways, I realized one year is not too young to chase after sponsors especially those whose items we use in our recipes and all.

For Subsequent Giveaways, God willing, we shall be having their item reviews and Giveaways altogether. If they


Wives Connection Is One Celebrating one year of blogging. To God be all the glory. Though I wanted to blog and just do something about families, women, cooking etc, I didn't know it was going to kick off on that fateful day. It all started on the 31st May 2012 late at night trying to experiment with my daughter. Suddenly we saw pageviews and decide  to try again, we saw more pageviews and I'm "Ok, I think people enjoy reading what I post so I'll keep posting"
Between May 2012 and January 2013, the blog had just over 30,000 views. Between January 2013 and May 2013 this blog has seen over

My Mother-In-Law Is Too Close

Hello Aunty Eya,
 I have a little problem that needs advice. It's my mother in law. Whenever she comes around which is often, she doesn't give me time with my husband. When he is seated on the couch, she rushes to sit beside him. When he is alone in the bedroom she goes for a meeting.

I try to be nice and caring but she never appreciates my efforts. When I am

Workouts in Bikini? When we work out, one reason is to feel hot and sweat out thereby burning some fats. When someone exercises with a bikini, will she even sweat one drop?  Me , I saw it first with Lady May o. Is it that Huddah is a Lady-May-wanna-be or what?

AnonymousMay29, 2013 at 9:37 AM I don't know if this reply is coming rather late, but I hope it helps.
I had keloid I got from piercing an extra ear hole. It was huge and a scar on my back too. I used the python fat for a while, don't know for what reason, the scar and keloid just didn't reduce or disappear. Until someone

Big Brother Africa Consuming My Free Time

Big Bother Africa The ChaseWhat are they really chasing? Is it the Three Hundred Thousand US dollars or themselves? The way the entered the house in pairs makes me feel "The Chase" is loaded with meaning. The show is on and these days I see myself spending almost all my free time on the couch with Big Brother. 

I pray this doesn't affect my blogging, will try as much as possible to update regularly. Wives connection will be one in three days. Late on the night of May 31 in 2012, I remember my daughter encouraging me to just post anything before going to bed. So, I must update until we celebrate her Anniversary. One year Anniversary I hear is very important. "Big Brother, please, stop taking my free time." Lol

Thank You All, My Biological Father Passed

Hello Aunty Eya,
I am the guy that wanted to know if it's proper to go look for mybiological Father? Actually I did what you all advised and went privately the very next day. Thank you Ace and others who left caring comments for me.

I got the address from Mum and left without informing anyone. She advised me to go to his home town where I may be directed to where I can find him. I arrived early but spent time trying to locate the family which finally paid off. I met

Happy Children’s’ dayIt is really partial and annoying that I don’t get a day off work coupled with my colleagues that get a day off today. I woke up this morning with a wide grin. My mum’s sister sent me a text this morning saying ‘happy children’s day’ and I thought c’mon ‘MummyO’ at my age. It was such a struggle getting

Did You Remember Their Day?

HAPPY CHILDREN'S DAY I was ashamed of myself this morning when my girls grabbed me from behind singing happy children's day  to me when I should have done that to them. Anyway, I didn't know they were awake. When I peeped they were still fast asleep. 

Today is not like a general holiday for the whole family, parents are at work, so I guess some of us parents won't bother knowing that Democracy Day Holiday is in two days. 

Today, the children know it's their day and as usual all they want is fun. If we can't create time for them cos of work. We can create

Fun With Abbreviations

On a lighter note, let's create/have fun with abbreviations and their meanings. We may not have come across them often on WC but the truth still remains that we see or come across them in our everyday lives. Funny enough, most of us don't even know what they mean and we just skip after we must have cracked our brains out without success.
Below are a few ones I could come up
