WEDNESDAY In House News...

 I salute you all with Wednesday in house news salutations....











INSIDE THE MIND OF A WOMAN GOING THROUGH MOTHERHOOD 


Every time I go shopping for myself, I end up spending most of the money on my kids. A lot of time I leave home determined to buy stuff for myself or at least spend the lion share of the money on myself but I still end up spending it on my kids.

I am not complaining at all because I am so thrilled at the end of the day. 


The last time I went in search of shoes with soft insoles for myself, I ended up not getting any but got two cute ones for my boys. Also my last market trip made me desire a daughter. 


You need to see the beautiful cute gowns and shoes I saw, you know those soft billowing gowns with matching headbands, ruffles etc.

If I had a daughter, I would make sure she sparkles from head to toe, I would dress her in bright colours and glitters. I will make her hair into age appropriate braids with colourful beads. I was never allowed to have beads in my hair as a child. 


To think  that from childhood till now I have never been the one to like or wear bright colours, there used to be a time almost all the clothes in my wardrobe was black.

I am changing though and would like to have a daughter that I can twin with but I am done. 





You are done with what? You hung your boots?...Hahahahahahhahahahahaha if wishes were horses, everyone will have everything.....

RE DOMESTIC VIOLENCE - APPRECIATION



Thank you for posting my story in on house news on Monday, I'm overwhelmed with all the encouragement, prayers, love and E- hugs from lovely BVS. I shed tears while reading the comments and I promise not to go back to the beast of a husband.


My family is in support of my decisions, though my dad was angry for putting them in the dark for years about the abuses, he says he doesn't have a daughter a man will kill in the name of marriage. That whenever I am ready, the BRIDE PRICE will be returned to my ex kinsmen.


Bv Tiana, you're right. My sleep has improved since on Sunday, I now have this inner peace within me. Thank you so much for your encouragement.


Once again, thank you Stella for your platform and everyone for your kind words, encouragements and prayers.

Looking forward to a new chapter of my life , praying for God's guidance, help and protection.


If you're in an abusive relationship/marriage , please leave now while you can.


Bv Surrogate mother.





Na wah, imagine having peace of mind after living. meaning you were living a nightmare....At least now you are no longer TTC and your mind can rest.......He was probably shooting blanks into you.
My dear enjoy your new beginning and remember that marriage no be by force so dont put pressure on yourself... Try to build yourself and work on your flaws and be a better person.

All the best!

SPENDING MONEY ADVICE NEEDED


Is 15k-25k weekly(7 days) too much for 1 parent and a child? hubby lives in a different state for now and he said the feeding money is too much that some people live on 30k a month.


 I'm trying to reduce it below are the things I buy.. 


garri and rice are bought in bulk Cereal/milk(weekly) Crate of Egg(weekly, I buy very little meat or fish so we mostly eat eggs in all meals except garri) Kid snacks/nuts(weekly) Veggies/fruit(weekly) 

Restock noodles or macaroni or spaghetti on some weeks Restock beans on some weeks (don't buy bulk beans to prevent infestation) Restock vegetable oil on some weeks Restock palm oil on some weeks Little Protein(weekly) Onions,(weekly) Pepper(weekly) Crayfish(weekly) Potato or Yam (weekly)


 Plantain(weekly) Tomatoes on some weeks Condiments restock on some weeks Bread........(some weeks) Water....( weekly) I try to make a healthy variety for my kid to take to school however, I've tried to reduce and reduce as it seems the cost of feeding is just going up and income is not matching the up ward movement so it seems we spend a better half of our income on food! 


 The eventual weekly spending on food is between 15-25k depending on what I'm stocking up on. Is this too much? How else can I cut down on feeding expenses.





HUH? You spend so much money weekly on food? meaning you spend 100k on month on just you and the child? Do you spend all day in the kitchen? So you must restock every week? If you had said a month i would have agreed at 30k but to spend this amount every week is outrageous!

Check your list...

Things are expensive i know but if you use so much for 2 people weekly, how much will it be for three or four?

    Thank You, Father, for Your love that envelopes me. Thank You for giving me a new life in Christ Jesus that is full of glory and joy unspeakable. My life does not accommodate pain, sickness, death, or anything that is of the devil.

    1. Madam spending advice, the money you are spending is too much on food for only you and your child, please check your list and cut down. There are food stocks that you can buy in bulk and save a lot of money.

    2. Madam food, it's ur type that consumes half mudu gari at a seating. You too chop biko, try dey save money pls.
      Reminds me of a girl that once lived with me, that one made sure a bag of rice finishes in a month, only 3 of us oo. Am not even sure weda na too much food on me made me send her back or something else.

  2. Daniel 12:3 "Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever."

    This is my first clear direction or personal prophetic word from scripture. It came to me about 20 years ago. It's become one of God's best comfort, instruction and guide for me.

    Psalms 110:4 "The LORD has taken an oath and will not break his vow: “You are a priest forever in the order of Melchizedek.” was my first anchor scripture for ministry. I was 19.

    Indeed God's method are revealed in scriptures and he daily reaffirms his love for us through his word. Our life must be rooted in this foundation even when Satan buffets us because outside of the Father, we have nothing.

    Do you remember any specific personal word from scriptures that have remained your life's compass and anchor? Please share, let's edify each other.

    1. Isaiah 54: 10 - 14 assures me always of God's love and power of restoration.
      Ezekiel 2 and 3 just few days ago when I was praying for my ministry.

      Jer 29 : 11 NIV:For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

  3. I salute you stella ma’am Stella.

    Hi everyone, hope your day is moving on well. I’ve been sleeping like there’s no tomorrow since last night. Why? I took xastene and super apetite medicine to help me gain atleast 1kg. My weight aint fit for someone attaining to make it in sports.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi Khal, I hope you backed it up with good and healthy feeding? Cos if you eventually stop taking those drugs you'll go back to default setting. You can add supplements like vitamins C 1000mg & E 1000 IU.

      If you really want to add some weight, just eat good and large amount of food, then have enough sleep. You're good to go.

      Delete
    2. Khaleesi, babe! If xastene is same as xasten, stop taking it. Abeg.. take apetamin, it still contains cyproheptadine. But you see that xasten, leave it.

      Delete
    3. BlackBerry there is a post on ig by doctor Fumilayo on Apetamin bin very dangerous for the body, khaleesi I think u should take more smoothies and eat well and at intervals instead of these drugs.

      Delete
    4. For real?? It was a chemist that prescribed it for me and I must confess it’s really working. I’m going to stop right away for my health sake.
      Thanks all๐Ÿ™

      Delete
    5. Xasten is a steroid please. Avoid apetamin till NAFDAC gives a clarification on it. For now, you can continue with the super appetite but try not to take it every day so your body doesn't get so use to it. Add vit E and C, regular monovitamins like reload woman, well woman, beta woman, or healthy woman.
      For your skin, take Yolo, it's the most affordable supplement for skin treatment

      Delete
    6. Biko stop taking xasten, except you want to have large face on a small body

  16. The weekly expenses write-up is much for just two people for an average earner abeg, except if you are rich. It can be reduced if you really work on your expenses. some items should be bought in bulk and you work on your consumption level too. This takes discipline to be achieved.

    Congratulations once again surrogate mum. You will be fine kkk
