September ’15 Weekender

Well well…here is my selection for this month’s weekender after a long long time.

Well…as always, I put up five videos / tracks that I have been playing alot in a month. This list may or may not be influenced by my kids. Reason being, we always have an hour every other day where hubby and I put on music and just have a jam session.

So here goes…

WizKid – Ojuelegba

AliKiba – Mwana

Liquideep – Still

Jess Glynne – Don’t Be So Hard On Yourself

Kendrick Lamar – Alright (This is the best track and video for me this year ❤️)



Separation Anxiety

As a parent, this is an emotion that will never ever go away.

Separation anxiety is an emotion that you will never be prepared for, as it hits you like a ton of bricks on your heart.

This week it hit me as my eldest (yes, I have two kids now) started proper school. He used to go to nursery since he was 3, but this is now different. Going through the whole application process, waiting to hear if you got your first choice of school, visiting the school and meeting the teachers, waiting for Autumn to start and buying the school uniform. This is an emotional rollercoaster that lasts months and when the time comes when your little one dresses up in his new uniform, puts on his book bag, you take him to school and sign him in and all you get is, “OK, bye!” And off he goes to play with his old and new friends in a new environment like nothing has changed. The tears that follow are not from your growing child, but from you, as you can’t believe how fast the time flown.

Wasn’t it just the other day that your were carrying him in your belly and then in your arms? Bringing him home from the hospital.

And now…you get this sense of new found independence that shocks you into the reality that, they are never babies for long.

So if you have kids, enjoy and embrace the moments. Blink and you will wonder where all the time has gone.


I bet you are all wondering here the heck I disappeared to…..well, I have been around, just not here.

Truth be told, I lost my blogging mojo and by the time it came back, I had forgotten my password.

And I finally cracked it and gained access to my old….now revived blog.

Now I can come and vent here in peace….although, somethings and how I go about it may change….who am I kidding….this is me – MOCHA!

Ok….to be honest, I am glad to be back as I missed you all and my ‘Weekenders’ music rotation list.

Blog you later!

Station Freebies 300312

There was a mad scramble for some free chocolates, the morning of 30 Mar 2012, from Nestlé in conjunction with Metro UK.

Commuters wanted to get their hands on Aero, the new bubbly bar and I was one of them.

Judging from the current economic climate, I have come to notice the reduced number of free stuff handed out. So the few times companies decide to do market research by providing consumers with free trials of their product, it’s no surprise people will be inclined to push and shove to get their just desserts.

I digress.

Thank you Metro and Nestlé for the treats. Aero is one of my favourite chocolate brand anyway. I enjoyed these two bars as I read my copy of the paper.
