Just Do It!

Nineteen days ago I made the executive decision to start a blog. To be honest, this ‘ambition’ had been lurking at the back of my mind for so long it had become a bit of a nightmare. So, backed by the support and an almost physical shove by some of my ‘correct’ pallies (pals+allies= friends), Nono says… was born.

That was two weeks and five days ago.

This was supposed to be my unspoken, unwritten New Year’s resolution. But nah wah o, it’s been hard, gosh! Three days after launching the site, I’ve only managed to write an ‘about me’ page and ‘the journey starts here’. Fact is, the nightmares have got worse. I must confess, the thought of turning on my computer these days has left me swallowing hard. I have written and lined out a truck load of blog content in my head, but when I hold a pen and paper, yes I am old fashioned- I still  write on paper first before typing out, I freeze. The words just don’t come out.

Anyway, that’s the past now. I’ve decided to start on a new page. I’m making a new New Year’s resolution. I’m taking this blogging thing seriously from now on. So every evening when I get back from work; tired, feeling like I’ve carried my VW polo the 10 miles journey back home, preferring to take a long nap into tomorrow rather than follow up this new found hobby, I will sit in front of my computer and write something, anything. I will ‘just do it’. Then on Saturday and Sunday of that week, I shall post some content on this here blog.

Fingers crossed!

So all ye supporters and fans of Nono says… watch this space. Mwah!

Good old days start with good new days like today- Denise Settle

The journey starts here…

Allo nu!

Welcome to Nono says…

Need help getting around? This is probably the best place to start, until you get used to being here. I’m trying to get my head around this place myself. I guess we can call this page the ‘reception room’.

Click on any of the featured posts below to give you a head start, or better still you can go through each of the menu categories. Whilst you are at it, don’t forget to smile. If you have anything in mind you would like to read about on Nono says…, then give us a shout (find out how on the contacts page). I would love to hear from you.

Oh, by the way, I love this old  Nigerian proverb:

If your face is swollen by the severe beatings of life, smile and pretend you are a fat man.

….. very random indeed.
