My Celebration Week

This last week has been on of anniversaries, celebrations and milestones. The first was that it was our one year anniversary of being in our home. Dominique and I moved in one year ago and it seems like only yesterday. So much has changed and this place really is a part of us now. I can honestly say that buying our home is the best thing we have done so far. The celebration was a party for Steve and Bridie's engagement. They are the next couple after Dominique and I to get engaged and so we celebrated Saturday night at the HWY function room. It was a pretty raucous sort of night and way too many drinks were had on my behalf. The milestone, and possibly the most important, was that this week was the four year anniversary of me starting this blog. Over the past four years there has been a lot of ranting, reviewing and all out dribble posted on this site but I promise it was all top quality. I'm glad I have kept this thing going and even though the past few years have been a little on the lean side, I think letters will always be typed into short rambling sentences and the words will flow on.

Here is to another four years of rambling on about what ever needs to be rambled about. Happy birthday blog.

My Dissapointment

Alright so the world cup is here and everyone is excited and going soccer crazy in Australia. We all thought Australia would do really well because we did pretty well last time, but we were not so lucky. Our first game was early Monday morning our time and we got flogged! Germany thrashed us 4 nil and to be honest from what I saw on the replay we played terribly and deserved to lose. Its really sad because we played really well in the last world cup and it would be great for soccer in Australia if we won a couple of games but I think the campaign for this year is well and truely over.

I had to work the Monday that the game was on so didn't stay up to watch it and am glad I didn't. No one likes to see their team lose like that. Im not exactly soccer crazy but I will probably watch the next game because we play Ghana and we might have a small chance of beating them. Good luck soccer roos!
