On Saturday I drew up a list of everything I needed to get done and the order in which I would do it so as to be home before the roads closed at the Eden Park Rugby Stadium. Then I started this .....
"Just hold on to the ball", she shouted. "There's only a minute and a half to go"!!
Now, I know I live very close to the stadium but this was really a little over the top! Anyway with my expert coaching and sideline encouragement the All Blacks WON!! My whole city, indeed my whole country is happy and very tired.
And since you ask, yes the HDHBEM did sit up and watch. She's far more enthusiastic than I, but today she is not only half deaf half blind, she is also half awake and her heart has gone into atrial fibrillation. So she's medicated and in bed! How silly of us both to suffer so for a sport we don't even enjoy. But then, we do enjoy basking in the glory and gloating over our win.
This morning in honour of our win I stitched myself a black pencil skirt for work. Nothing major but a good fit and tonight I will put up the hem. How suitable, I thought to myself, a black skirt to commemorate an All Black win. I don't even need to go into The City to join the victory parade. I can have my little celebration right here at home!
Well I have had a lovely weekend and I'm off now to grill chicken for dinner and then it will be an early night as I have work tomorrow. What a shame!
