World Cup fever

Once again I am about a week behind events. I have good intentions of blogging but life just seems to get in the way.

The RWC kicked off last Friday with a "Bang!", closely followed by a "Booo!". The booo was mostly due to transport issues which left some would-be spectators stranded resulting in them missing the opening ceremony – not happy Jan. Let's face it, it's not like the organisers haven't had enough time to plan for it!

Steve went along to the opening ceremony which was followed by the somewhat dull NZ vs Tonga game. The girls and I joined hundreds on the top of Mt Eden to view what was referred to as "the best fire works display NZ has ever seen!". It was nice but Eadie summed it up nicely with "If that's the best fire works NZ has ever had, they haven't seen much.".

Waiting for fireworks!


The excitement still reigns though, and it is contagious. We have shown our allegiance to the Wallabies, (I can't believe some of you had to ask!) and are wearing our hearts on our sleeves.

Some of the year 6 kids at school painted some Ruggers which are displayed along the school fence line. Ruby did the USA Rugger.
