I’m now on Twitter.
I may well be one of the few people on the planet who hasn’t yet seen Slumdog Millionaire.
As I have a Millionaire related website, I was keen to go and see it and then write a review for the site, but I’m very undecided or maybe just fearful?
Two friends of mine went to see it and absolute loved it! OK, I admit that they didn’t actually ‘say’ what they thought of it, I just read their status update on Facebook!!
I then went to visit my inlaws and my other half’s Mum said that she liked it but found it upsetting! Upsetting? But I thought it was a ‘feel good’ movie? ‘Yes, it is’ she said ‘But there are some harrowing bits. It’s a little like Schindlers List, it’s a great film but makes uncomfortable viewing.’ I’ve read no reviews of it so I was quite shocked to hear this. It may well just be her opinion, but it has put me off.
The thing is this. I can watch Horror Films with all the blood and gore that they can muster, but films that tell sad human stories I really struggle with, especially since I’ve had kids.
So, up until now I’ve found plenty of excuses not to go to the cinema to see it. Children are good for that. When you get invited to something that you don’t want to go to, you can say ‘I’m so sorry but I simply can’t get a babysitter that night!’
However, we are flying to the USA in a few weeks and obviously the most important thing that anyone should do when booking a long haul flight is see what films are showing on the plane…and what’s on our plane? You guessed it…..Slum Dog Millionaire!!!
I think it’s the universe’s way of telling me that I should watch it, sad or not. So it looks like Being a Millionaire will get it’s review after all.
Our tagline at BeingaMillionaire.com is ‘Being a Millionaire, it’s more than having a Million.’
You’ll find it on our website, it’s written throughout our literature and if you’ve ever had an email from me, it’s how I sign off!’
So…my question is….if it’s more than having a Million, then what is ‘IT’?
Ok, I’ll start. ‘It’ for me is feeling good.
‘And what Andrea…’ I hear you say..’makes you feel good?’
This week, I have been feeling good about my new bread maker.
I have been banging on about having one of these for years, so last week I bought one…reduced…of course. Anyone who knows me will tell you that I never pay full price for anything. I also love telling people, whether they want to know or not, how much it cost!!
So…my breadmaker was reduced to £34.00 which to my mind was a bargain!
We unpacked it and placed it in it’s own little spot on the kitchen worktop and promptly and proudly produced our first loaf. Now if any of you out there are building anything at the moment, this loaf would have made an excellent brick! It was horrible and rock hard!!!
So there I was, straight on the internet finding bread recipes. After a week of trial and error I have found the perfect recipe that makes beautiful bread and you can find it here, http://www.carrsbreadmaker.info/recipes/wholemeal_flour.html.
If you’ve got any recipes that you think I’ll like, please post some here or email me on firstname.lastname@example.org.
