I love my life! I really do. I am a stay-at-home mother, who also works as a freelance consultant for interior design jobs and companies. I’m as busy as I want to be, in control of my time, and able to prioritise the things that are most important to me.
I love being a mother. My baby is only seven weeks old, so I’m still very much enjoying a break from work. My husband and I waited more than three years for the good news that was Tinuke, and now she is here, I can’t remember the wait. I am so happy!

She had decided to get a maid, who started with them at the start of February. She received Mama’s training on how to assist Lola before Mama left for Ondo State last week. So, Lola could lie back, put her feet up, and catch up on some rest.
