What an awesome day it is today - we are the winners of the 2011 RWC. Its taken such a long time for us to win the Webb Ellis Trophy again - 24 years. OMG it was such a great night but I did not like watching the game... It was nail biting but at the end of the day we won!!! A win is a win and we will take it.
I went with a group to the Motueka Recreation Centre where they had an official fanzone area. What an awsome atmosphere... They had a guy playing music for a couple of hours before the game and then we watched the game on the big screen. Lots of cheering and shouting when we won ( and a big sigh of relief too!!) then alot of us went in the big impromptu haka. A big thanks to the team at the Rec (Ria, Brent, Jody and their staff) it was a great place to be if you couldn't be at the game (like my hubby)
Can you see the gorgeous cupcakes? Aren't they just so cute with the little rugby balls and rugby boots. My neighbour got them from a fabulous shop (Chocolate Velvet) in Richmond and gave me and my grandys one each. They were yummy too!
I hope everyone has had a great long weekend (in NZ) whether you watched the rugby or not. Now our lives can get back to normal but I think we will enjoy the win for a few more days...
