Back to reality.

Last Saturday we were in Marseille for the quarter final between England and Austalia. It was AMAZING. We have had an AMAZING few weeks. I have never been to any Internatinal Sporting events before and have been bowled over by the whole experience. Rugby has a reputation for good natured rivalry between fans and so it has proved.
On Saturday we were surrounded by Aussie fans but they took DEFEAT very well. Oh it was just so good. They beat us at everything normally but atlast it was our turn.
In the evening we sat in a Bar in Marseille and cheered on the French to their victory over the All Blacks, even more AMAZING.
Now we are back home and preparing to watch tonights match "LE CRUNCH" and whoever wins we shall have a team to support in the final.
You may think I have been a bit liberal with the word AMAZING but it sums up the last few weeks perfectly. We are in a very rural part of France so visiting Toulouse, Nantes and Marseille in the space of four weeks has been tiring but brilliant.
And without our good friends who have been looking after our animals in our absence it would not have been possible. THANKYOU.
Normal service will be resumed next week. Whatever that means!!!!!!!

Hi Sheepish, I'm very envious of you seeing it live! In contrast I sat in The Londoner pub in Bangkok surrounded by Brits and Aussies and it was brilliant.

Husband's going out tonight to watch it, but at 2am local time, it's just too late for me.
