A line has been drawn

15 Oct

We have a line drawn down the centre of our house. It is a big thick line, protected with reinforced concrete, barbed wire and electric shock. One side is a glorious green and gold. The other side a mucky white and mouldy red.

I can’t quite figure out how the team that lost to us 36-0 (Dave’s grudging comment on that match was “we were lucky to get the zero”) managed to scramble their way past Australia, New Zealand and France and make it into the final. And knowing my luck, we will lose the cup to bloody Johnny Wilkinson’s drop kick. My poor shattered nerves.

Adam will be sleeping in his SA shirt all of this week. Dave can put that damm English Paddington Bear in his cot, but it is not my fault if the bear is mysteriously smothered during the night. Dave can fly his flags from the side of the cot. I am sure that Adam will be very cosy sleeping under his SA flag.

Adam fell and hurt his nose yesterday. It bled a bit. The blood was green.

    So glad that Adam is rooting for the right side. He looks too cute in his Springbok jersey and ‘scrum-cap’.

    go Adam. You lie on your daddies paddington bear.
    My nerves cant take it to be honest and I find I hold my breath for long periods of time leading to me feeling a tiny bit faint.
    I will be there on the green and gold side even though I live on the mucky white and mouldy red bit
