Our South African World Cup Final

We had a very busy household yesterday. It was the end of the World Cup here in South Africa and we celebrated this final day of soccer with good friends. We decided to make it a fun experience, our friends brought a Dutch dish and we made a Spanish one. We chose to make Paella. I have never made Paella before so it was a real treat to make. We were all in the kitchen the whole afternoon. Richard, the girls and myself all cooking together… The closing ceremony of the World Cup was fantastic! The elephants walking around the pool of water, this was truly phenomenal… And to see Nelson Mandela being driven across the soccer field was humbling and inspirational… I felt so proud to be a South African last night, I thought my heart would burst! This Cup has done wonders for our country, it has brought so many people together and has united this beautiful land of ours. I will honestly miss watching the soccer games and I can’t believe that our World Cup has come and gone. It was such a grand experience…
The Paella in progress… it really did turn out wonderful and we will definately be adding it to our menu… What a lovely family effort. Joan’s Dutch dish was also equally yummy!
Everyone tucking in…
Stan, with his guitar which is never too far away from him always plays us awesome music…
Oh and I just had to include this. Charlie is actually lying on one of my wheat grass trays, I mean really the cheek of it:)
AYOBA South Africa!

World Cup

The World Cup is well underway here in South Africa and last week Richard took three of our little ones to watch Argentina play South Korea. They set off for Soccer City on Thursday morning, Erin had her crutches in tow too. They sat right behind the goals and saw Argentina score 4 times! They loved it and I am sure will remember this day for a VERY long time! They were supporting Argentina as you can see from the blue hats and Caiden’s Voovoozela.

South Korea had these huge flags that they pulled out over the crowd while their national anthem was being sung and then as fast as they appeared, they dissappeared once again…

What an amazing time they had…
It is really freezing here at the moment, I am off to sit by the fire:)
Have a great weekend.

Today is a very special day here in South Africa! It is the start of the South African World Cup! We are so excited and cannot wait for the first game to begin here in South Africa today at 4pm! It is so festive at the moment, everyone has flags flying on the roof of their cars while they drive around and many have flags on the front walls of their homes of the countries that they will be supporting:) There are Vuvuzelas being blown all over the country making an amazing noise!
