8 days till kick off!

South Africa is buzzing with activity .... shopfronts are beautifully decorated, roads are repaired and looking smart and many cars are adorned with flags and different paraphernalia. As well as a great portion of our nation are sporting our soccer team's colours. We are looking bright and happy!!
Yes!!!.... the FiFa World Cup Soccer Championsips is about to commence in South Africa. OKAY I don't know how ready our soccer team, Bafana Bafana, is but our country is excitedly waiting for the games to begin!

Even though I'm not patriotic nor a soccer fan I can feel the 'GEES' ( Afrikaans word for SPIRIT) and I am sure I will catch a game or two on the tube. What's also fab is that the kids and I get to have a 5 week break! wahoooo
