Aussie! Aussie! Aussie! Oi! Oi! Oi!

Australia 2 - Croatia 2

Australia are through to the next round in the World Cup for soccer! Hooray!

I don't normally watch soccer, but Brian and I got up at 5am this morning to watch Australia take on Croatia. Australia just needed to draw to go through to the next round.

And, man, what an exciting match. We were on tenterhooks done to the last second. And I have to say, Harry Kewell, what a legend. He scored the equalising goal in fine style.

As we don't watch it much, didn't know quite what to expect. What we found interesting is how much a role penalties have in the match, people diving to the ground feigning injuries everywhere.

Great game though, I don't regret getting up to watch it.

For sustenance during the game, my wonderful husband cooked us up a big breakfast, bacon, eggs, toast, sausage, tomato. Plus freshly brewed coffee. Quite a treat on a workday morning. Usually we cook our breakfast out on the BBQ, but as it was still dark Brian cooked in the kitchen. What we didn't allow for was how smoky it can get cooking sausages and bacon. Our smoke alarm went off at least three times, which meant I was on tea towel duty. Tea towel duty = Amanda standing on third stair madly waving tea towel at smoke alarm to get the smoke away from it. Hoping the penetratingly loud sound didn't wake the neighbours! :)

Anyways, off to the physio now (back still recovering from going too hard at my first yoga class), then off to work.
