Long Weekend

It is Labour weekend here in New Zealand. It is also Rugby World Cup final time.

This is the first long weekend we have had since June, so everyone is in desperate need of a little time out. Luckily at this time of year we can get some lovely weather, so it makes it even better having an extra day to the weekend.

We are, as usually at this time of year, at our caravan. The wind is up but the sun is shinning and the boys have been running and cycling around the camp with their friends all day and loving it. I am getting nothing done, but that is how it should be, although I have managed to get 1 jigsaw completed (with help from the family) and I still have several others to complete.

The 3rd & 4th place rugby game is on tonight, and it sounds like there will be quite a party. The campsite has put up a projector in the BBQ area so all can see if they wish. I will be cheering for Wales, as I am just so proud of how far they have come in this tournament. I really do wish they were playing New Zealand on Sunday instead of France but hey can’t have everything.

On Sunday, then I think it will be big here, New Zealand are in the final and I can imagine there will be a huge crowd at the BBQ area for that one. We are going to let the boys stay up for that, it will be an interesting evening.

So here is to a great long weekend.
