Oprah Day

The day finally arrived. Named by the media, Oprah Day, saw the culmination of a year's preparation being displayed with two Oprah shows taped today at the Sydney 'Oprah' House. There will be four shows in all to be seen in January (around the 19th) in the US and here in Australia the day after.

The audience went wild and there was even an accident with guest Hugh Jackman arriving on stage. Don't worry though, he's alright. They may not show the actual incident when it goes to air but he flew on to stage via a flying fox, pulled the breaks too late, and ended up crashing into the back of the stage. Apart from a bruised, cut eye, he's still his perfect self. Oprah went ahead and interviewed him, as the show must go on.

She flies out of Australia tomorrow and our country can settle down a little and get back to some normality. What an exciting time it's been, for us here in OZ! THANKS OPRAH!!!

Yesterday they broadcast the show here where she surprised her guests! I love your blogs about it here as we don't see that here yet and oh how I would love to go to Australia! It looks so beautiful to me!! Thank you for sharing! I will love reading any updates you see there! I wish it was warm here like it is there this time of year. It has been a bit cold for me here in Texas! I love your stitching too and Shepherd's Bush is a favorite of mine too! I am stitching Holly and Ivy now! Debby

Great updates, Jane! I so hope Hugh is okay - as the broadcaster said, he is a National Treasure. Mmmmm....

Have a Merry Christmas!

Thanks for the posts Jane! I'm sure you will be seeing lots more visitors soon!

Wasn't Oprah's visit just like a big pre-Christmas Christmas present?!!!
