Life with Treena Kwenta
Hi Readers! I got a little insight of the relationship between Seb and Belinda while the three of us, along with Edmund, were paying a visit to Tayo’s mum in Abeokuta. Make no mistake – they are fond of each other, enjoy being together, and above all, understand each other well.Continue Reading →
Hi Readers! The next time that Edmund visited me, he came in a state-of-the art Lexus jeep. I was impressed.
“Wao, Edmund! You’ve arrived! You’ve made it big! I didn’t know you were worth this much. You must be swimming in Angolan oil. Tell me, do you have an oil block over there now?”Continue Reading →
Hi Readers! The first thing that the gals did on their return to Lagos was to go
pay a visit to the supposedly sick Belinda – Seb’s fiancee. Why? Well, my view when Becky the evangelist/peace-maker mooted the idea was that we should leave her alone. I suggested to the gals that we should each ring her up to ask how Belinda was feeling, and then leave the matter at that.
Hi Readers! This is Treena, at last! Are you breathing a sigh of relief that I’ve got my page back, or are you missing Tayo? Don’t make me jealous by feeling the former. I guard this page very jealously, you know, and I appreciate all those who read it; particularly those who have stayed loyal for over twenty years! Wao! It’s been running for more than 26 years now! Amazing!Continue Reading →
I was pleasantly surprised when we got to the airport in Accra to find the place awash with so many of my relatives; mainly the younger generation of dad’s family in Ghana, and mum’s family from Liberia and Sierra Leone.
Hi Readers!Nanny and I arrived here in Accra yesterday, a week ahead of Heather’s white wedding. Boy! It was nice to see my parents looking so well and happy. Aunt Adeline too! I became like a little girl once again as I hugged each of them over and over again. The sudden death of Tayo’s dad made me appreciate my parents being alive, and I asked after their health solicitously.”Continue Reading →
Hi Readers! It takes a lot of courage to sleep when there’s so much sorrow in the house, so, needless to say that I found it difficult to go to sleep in Tayo’s room to which Liz, Boma, Becky and I had retired for the night.Continue Reading →
Hi Readers! Talk of the wind blowing weeds into your garden of lovely roses! It was a Saturday mid-morning and our materials supplier had just delivered the various materials we were going to use for Heather’s white wedding in Accra. We were in high spirits as we admired one material after the other.Continue Reading →
Hi Readers! The days are simply flying past! It seems a million years ago that we all went up to Jos for Heather’s traditional wedding. The couple have since paid a visit to Robert’s relatives in the West Indies and have returned to their desks in Britain.Continue Reading →
I didn’t know whether to be pleased or annoyed that Seyi turned up at the airport to see off Milwan. We had sat around waiting for him and the others to check-in, when I noticed that there was a young lady, moving around from point to point with him. At first, I had thought that she was another passenger, but on closer observation, I discovered that it was Seyi. I was about to draw Tayo’s attention to it, when she nudged me and nodded in her direction.Continue Reading →
Hi Readers! It was the festive season alright, but my heart became heavy as the time for Milwan, Heather and Robert to return to Britain, drew near. After the party for them at Becky’s place they had just under 48 hours before leaving. I jokingly asked if they would consider staying for Christmas.Continue Reading →
Hi Readers! The gals were enjoying themselves so much at the party for Heather, Robert and Milwan at Becky’s place that we didn’t leave, after all.Continue Reading →
Hi Readers! I returned to Lagos from Jos with a heavy heart. We had all had a marvellous time in Jos, but I hadn’t planned the after-event properly.Continue Reading →
Hi Readers! A reader sent a text to ask if Belinda was present at my daughter’s traditional wedding in Jos just before Christmas.Continue Reading →
Hi Readers! Praise God! We had very fine weather for the traditional wedding. There was some harmattan haze at first, but as the day progressed, this dissipated, revealing a clear sky. Early that morning, Seb sent text messages round that all our guests from Lagos should meet at one of his flats in town for brunch, so that he and I could introduce them to Robert and his parents.Continue Reading →
