Here in Nigeria, the fuel queues show no sign of disappearing but we still have to Turn It Up today on Turn It Up Tuesday. Please say a prayer for Nigeria, will you?
Fuel scarcity can’t hold us down as you can see from the selfie taken while I was stuck in traffic with my fuel gauge dancing towards the ‘E’ mark and rays of beautiful sunshine bathing my face…but I am not anxious.
We say thanks for joining our sisters on the other side of the Globe to celebrate the start of Spring last week – hope you all have an amazing season!
Thank you so much for joining us for another week here on Turn It Up Tuesdays, and thanks to all of you for making this party amazing and fun each week! We appreciate you!
