The World Cup

Having been in New Zealand now for almost 10 years ( yes!! whee time flies) well with a little coming and going in there....but not any more home to stay now.

I really can say I have not really missed anything from Europe or any other country we have lived in...BUT !!
This week I realise I have missed something : SOCCER

I am not that certain that I watched much of it before but guess because it was all around me I just took it for granted... With a Husband who was a class 1 referee and a son who was also a referee the talk at home obviously was soccer.
Till this week and the coverage of the World Cup, I now realise that I haved missed it.

I never ever thought I would get excited about football on the TV, but, yes I am, I have even bought a TV guide so I know the timings of the matches and broadcasts.
So if I am missing for awhile just look for me in front of the TV...

Only now that I have 2 boys do I realise how much sport was discussed and watched in our house, and yes like you, I realise that I miss it, with the wizzing of cars racing round a track to soccer, cricket, rugby etc I still don't get to see much but when it is on I love it
