I got almost everything that was on the list I don't know how I am going to carry all these things I pushed the trolley with the plastics out atleast I can push it to the gate then from there I'm on my own I took the plastics out and from there I knew I wasn't going to manage some guy made his way to me

Him: hey lemme give you a hand

Me: oh thank you so much

Him: where are you going?

Me: I am going to catch a local taxi that will take me closer to the estate

Him: and how will you get home from there? Come let me give you a ride

Me: Thank you God bless you

We headed for his car and he did nothing funny and didn't ask me for anything out of the ordinary I got out and went home

I was so exhausted but too bad I still have some cleaning to do

I was humming a song while cleaning

"Hush little baby don't say a word

Mama's going to buy you a mockingbird.

If that mockingbird won't sing

Mama's going to buy you a diamond ring.

If that diamond ring turns brass

Mama's going to buy you a looking glass.

If that looking glass gets broke

Mama's going to buy you a billy goat.

If that billy goat won't pull

Mama's going to buy you a cart and bull.

If that cart and bull turn over

Mama's going to buy you a dog named Rover.

If that dog named Rover won't bark

Mama's going to buy you a horse and cart.

If that horse and cart fall down

You'll still be the sweetest little boy in town.

So hush little baby

You'll still be the sweetest little boy in town.

So hush little baby don't you cry

Daddy loves you and so do I."

I don't know why but this song always hits deep

Grams came in and she smiled

Her: Your mom loved that song she sang it every time while brushing her tummy when she was pregnant 

She sat down I looked at her and I knew that she wanted to tell me something 

Me: grams what's wrong? 

Her: your uncles said that they can't be coming here a lot it's either the Radebes come this weekend too or on Friday the day before Lindo'wedding 

That's a bummer I'm always gonna be on Lindo's shadow

Me: (sad) it's okay grams at least they are coming that's more than enough for me


I was in the bridal shop for my first fitting but these dresses just didn't interest me and they were expensive for no reason 

Me: Ayy I don't like this one it's too much of a ball gown

Her: try a fish tail then I'm sure you will like it

I tried it too but I don't know whether it was the dresses or me but I was just not feeling it but I'd go for the fish tail at least it shows my body I don't feel like I'm in a body bag

We left and went for cake tasting and the venue

By the time we were done I was hungry and tired 

Me: can we go home now MA? 

Her: let's get something to eat first

Me: we'll eat at home

She didn't argue we went to the car and drove home


I just finished making lasagne for lunch I was really down after that talk I had with Grams but ke there is nothing I can do

Mom and Lindo got in as I sat down to watch tv

Mom: Hee inoba ndiyalingwa are done cleaning njengoba uhleli emasofeni am? 

Me: hayi MA I just have to hang the laundry and I'm done 

Her: so what are you waiting for? 

I got up I was on my way to the laundry room

Her: and where is our lunch can't you see we are tired and hungry? 

I went and dished up for them and left them eating as I went to hang the laundry and iron the dry one fold it then take it to their rooms 

I got into the guest bathroom and I took some soap and lotion because I've ran out 

I went to put them in my room then came back to cook dinner
