30 Hours to Go

Our little country is very excited.  It is the talk of the town, the workplace and just everywhere.  Yes it is the rugby world cup final, to be held in London at 4pm Saturday their time, which for us lucky Kiwis is 5am.  So just about everybody will be staying up, or getting up to watch our team play the Aussies.

Mum feels a bit spoiled.  She was glad it was finally Friday - even though she only had to work 2 days this week.  She is on call for a bit of the weekend, but will get lots of chances to relax.  She is a bit sad though, as her lovely niece has finished her exams, and next week will be back off to spend the holidays with her family.  It has been a pleasure having her here for the year.  Such a lovely clever girl, it has been nice for mum to see her blossom and her confidence grow.

So we hope you have a nice weekend planned with some fun things to do! Maybe it's a movie, a good book or something tasty to eat, share a meal with friends or have a nice drink with your dinner or maybe it is just relax and pat a cat - all good things!

  3. Poppy, dear, thanks to your excellent reporting I was able to make an appropriate remark to a young man wearing a kiwi tee I met standing in line at the airport: "Big game coming up! Will you win...?" And he thoroughly enjoyed telling me ALL about it!
