Hello final
Posted 8:58 AM on Mon-17-Oct-2011
As if Saturday night's decider wasn't exciting enough, last night came with excitement and anticipation. Would the Wallabies pull out one of their usual important match wins, or would the All Blacks shine through. Luckily it was the later.

The Legend was determined to stay up and watch some of the match, nine o'clock start though is a bit of a jip, and apparently it's so overseas viewers can tune in at a reasonable hour - well screw them I say not like us kiwis haven't set the alarm for one or three am in the past to wake and warily watch a egg shaped ball be passed around a paddock.

While not the usual on a Sunday, we decided a drink was in order and after ten minutes of hot water therapy under the tap, I managed to open a glued shut bottle of Irish liquor and splashed a bit 'on the rocks'. Thank goodness there was only enough in the bottle for one glass each - boy is that stuff easy to drink.

Plenty of yahooing, and much commentary by The Legend he found himself ready for the bench and just before half time we sent him on his merry way to the land of nod - and just in the nick of time too it would seem - The Bloke made a nature call at half time to find The Legend snoring his head off - poor boy! Late night!

Pocket on the other hand was off to bed around eight even after a sleep in the car on the way back from our afternoon at the beach. If there's one kid who knows her limits, it's Pocket.

So here I sit this morning, feeling rather weary after two rugby semi final nights back to back. I'm picking that by five this afternoon, not only will the kids be grumpy and ready for bed, that so too may I be.

We're not rugby heads in our house by any means, but we do enjoy like most kiwis seeing our country do well. Next week is the final and we'll be in Samoa. Yikes - hope the manu's have a big screen somewhere that us kiwis can join them in watching a piece of history unfold - hopefully in our favour!

Go JO!
