Follow Great Footsteps Female empowerment

“A silly proverb in my place is “that you should always treat your towel very kindly because the part that wiped your ass today, might wipe your face tomorrow.”:-) – JACQUELINE OBYLKAKOCHA

Trust the lovely Jaque from a cooking pot and twistedtales Thoughts and Tales Etc..A Lifestyle Blog with a Zing.

I have been reading some of your lovely Bloggers posts this morning . I have also been feeling a bit not such a happy chappy of late.

So this proverb has some serious truth in it added with  Jaque’s signature zing of humour injected into it. I wouldn’t have expected her to leave her mark in being part of my  #FollowGreatFootsteps without  making sure she made my facial expression contort

I would like to add that perhaps when we clean our cloth make sure we put it on a hotter wash and add a bit more softener- just in case. Better to be safe than sorry, right?  😉

Who doesn’t know this fine lady’s Blog?

She makes up her own quotes. She has inspired me to start doing my own.

She is full of wisdom and has  a wicked sense of humour.

She does not come across as a lady who suffers fools gladly.

Actually she she may depends what they add to the pot. 😉

She is hard to pin down and I wouldn’t want to.

I’m going to let this Dame talk for herself. She does it so well.

“I am a gregarious, avid reader, who loves writing and telling stories”


Want a taste of how good she is with the written word?

HERE YOU GO A Poem about Me

She is a mother and a a proud wife to her gentleman of a husband. Her words. She  does not stick to doing one thing.

“I am still a child of Evolution, with varied interests ranging from pottery, painting, photography and gazillion stuff that I would like to try out.”


Nigerian born, lives in Dubai. She is bilingual in French and English.

‘Ambitious and Delicious’  should be her spirit totem name.

“I see a story in everything, humorous, serious, life matters, beauty, child rearing or anything that inspires me that we might have in common as humans.”


I’m always liking and commenting on her posts. She has me hooked. I am a loyal fan. 

She is a grafter/worker.  You will see why.

    I don’t take part in these kinds of actions near enough, so here it goes. Here’s my quote. Since I’m not wired to share other’s quotes but infrequently, this is one of my own: “Change your attitude and you will change your altitude.” I’m curious to see what you will do with this one. Bombs away! 🙂
