Catching a dance troupe at my cousin's traditional wedding was great because I love them so much but never get a chance to see any. The ladies were on fire. I am inspired. I'm going to start one at my town association here in London. These dances are in danger of dying out with my generation of Nigerian girls (women) especially those of us that live abroad.

Same goes for Adanma (dancing masquerade) also at that the same wedding. The masquerade and my Mum did a dance off! Hilarious! Will try and get the video from my cousin.

A major highlight was being with my brother(centre with his cousins). He will be 5 in May and we can have better conversations as he gets older. I have already started his education on life (the important things like Neyo, Timberland and Ludacris) and he loves P-Square and Timaya! I loved sitting with him most evenings and going through his words and letters. We still have issues with numbers, apparently '90' comes after '49'......

Manicures and pedicures at 1/5th the London prices! Can I get a witness?

Last but not least were seeing my friends and old colleagues. Facebook and phone calls can only go so far!! My cousin's children are also growing at an alarming rate and it was good to see them running around, and also noisy! LOL
