Hi Readers! After the pep talk from the gals on Robert and Heather’s desire to get married, my spirit did pick up and I began to count my blessings, as advised. Yes, Treena does have a lot to be thankful for in the match. First and foremost, my daughter is getting married to a man from the same middle class, refined background as we are.

Upward Move!

  /   in Life with Treena Kwenta 12:00 am   /   Comments

Hi Readers! The ribbing I got from the gals for the way I handled my encounter with Belinda was much worse than the one I had got earlier from nanny.

Tayo, as usual, led the attack when I was summoned to her place for the gals to deliberate on the matter. Apparently, before he came to chide me for upsetting his madam, Seb had been to her place to tell her that I had been instigating his lady to leave him. She said she had tried to reason with him that I was much above doing such a thing, but he had refused to believe her. He told her that I was behaving like the dog in the manger who wouldn’t eat a bone, and was preventing other dogs from eating it.

Wheeling dealing

Hi Readers! Do know that feeling of deflation you have, when on rushing home to report to your mother a clever thing you’ve done, and you meet a blank stare from her, indicating that what you considered ‘being clever’ was actually an act of stupidity? That was how I felt when I got home and told nanny of my encounter with Belinda in the office in Ikeja.

Turning the tables

Hi Readers! I had no clear-cut plan in my mind when I shooed Michel and his wife Lucy off to nanny’s room for the night. It wasn’t with an aim that they would forget their quarrel, kiss and make up in the intimacy of nanny’s room, but still, that wouldn’t have been a bad thing.

On the carpet!

Hi readers! A lesson for us divorced mothers is that it is unwise to try to use your children to fight the new madam in your ex’s home. You never know where the loyalty of your kids may lie, even though some may allow themselves to be manipulated by their mothers for a while, and they’re nasty to their father’s wife.

Hi readers! At any given time, trust nanny to be on Seb’s side. After the bombshell from Michel that Seb wanted me to put up Peace, the lady ‘on trial’ from Jos, I confided in nanny and asked her her opinion. As for me, the request filled me with horror. Was it because Seb bought the duplex for our children and me that he feels entitled to use it to house his guests?

When he phoned on Christmas day, he didn’t tell me he was still in Jos. We joked and prayed together over the phone for our children.
