Hi all - OMG what a week! I can't believe it's been so long since I last blogged and I am SORRY!! Last week was as crazy as the week before, and so I am going to split things up into small 'crazy' chunks!
The worst thing is that amongst all the busy-ness I managed to come down with the cold that colleagues at work have had, and so I've been feeling like BLEEP and not sleeping well either. Pah!
|I papped these crazy fools as I drove past them in my taxi on the way to the stadium! I love the crazy costumes people wear!|
So - WALES made it through to the Rugby World Cup semi-finals!! Whoop! As I have told you before, I normally hate sport, it bores me. But with it happening in our own back yard, it's been hard not to feel patriotic when you see a Welsh flag flying! And so last weekend the bf took me to see Tonga v France in the stadium. It was good fun but I didn't care who won, so I was a bit like 'whatever'. He promised me then that if Wales got through to the quarter finals in Wellington he'd take me - and what do you know, he had to cough up 800 bucks for tickets this Saturday!!!
|Yes that's my granny hand!! :)|
|VERY WINDY! Nearly lost me flag!|
|A grey Wellington day! And look at the cruise ship docked just next to the stadium! Amazing!|
|My massive sign. That took a LOT of colouring in!|
|A sea of green rugby fans!! We Welsh were in the minority!|
|This Irishman was HILARIOUS! He looked like an evil leprechaun and kept trying to work the crowd up. When he shouted 'Ireland' to make the crowd chant, I shouted "WALES" back at him. He wasn't happy! Better watch my back...|
The stadium was mainly full of Irish fans, and I felt quite in the minority! I had also spent 90 minutes that afternoon colouring in two signs in the hope of getting on camera so that my friends and family could see me in Wales. Alas, despite bopping people on the head (including myself!!) because of the Wellington wind, there was no shot of me and my mahoosive sign on tv. Nevermind!
Do you follow sport?
