I am having troulbe with blogging....where did my new template go??
Stop press! One of my most favourite talk show hosts -OPRAH! - is now a billionaire! I am happy for her. If you want to read more about it, go to www.forbes.com. I really do wonder how people become billionaires. Is it luck, sheer hard work or being at the right place at the right time. How does it feel to be one? Imagine not having to skint on anything?

Anyway, back to Oprah.Her shows are delightful, informative and inspiring. I just love tv - vast wasteland or not! There is no good bookshop where I live - believe it or not - so I do watch television. I do enjoy Oprah and especially the documentaries on satellite tv. CNN and BBC world is watched every day too, since war on Iraq may start anytime soon. Sigh. Wish we had world peace.

Hello. This is my first ever blog. I am pretty excited about it - always wanted to have a website but got confused by the IT jargon. It's pretty strange - for me at least- to have a blog, I have always been on the shy side and the thought of spilling my innermost thoughts on the world wide web is pretty scary to me. Me, a 34 year old homemaker -my weekly activities could be written on a thimble, haha! That's what I thought, until I made the most wonderful fish pie yesterday and suddenly voila! (lightbulb moment, as Oprah would say), I realised that there was so much more in life I could do. Like write a blog. Talk about living dangerously.
