MAXMOM here...

Hello there to all my friends across the globe!
This is a really quick, rushed note to just say that I won't be blogging today. The "Boss" came home yesterday and surprised me with two precious tickets for him and I to go and see the game at Soccer City AT 13h00. After months of complaining that we weren't able to get tickets, we now have them! Yippee!.  We're off to see the game between
so I won't be able to blog today....sorry!

It's all extremely takes about four hours of travelling time (despite the fact that Soccer City is only a few kilometers from us). We have to catch the public transport etc, etc, so it is basically a whole day away from home.  I'm not complaining.  Today I'm wearing blue! I'm hoping to take lots of photos to show you all tomorrow.
(Oh yes...last night SOUTH AFRICA was outclassed -big time- by URUGUAY. There was no stopping them! They were fantastic! Sad for South Africa but wonderful for Uruguay!

I'm off now...vuvuzela in hand and sneakers on my feet.  It's freezing in Johannesburg today, so I have plenty layers of clothes too.
Take care dear friends...see you all tomorrow.

Mr.Boss is truly amazing!

It's funny how you're not being able to blog today is such great news for us! You do know that it's because we are just too excited to know that your absence is because you and the Boss can actually experience the World Cup first hand! That's really really wonderful!!! We will join you tonight as we watch on TV! Weeeeeeee

We are enjoying the World Cup more now that we have you there in South Africa.

Enjoy the game and stay warm! Weeeeee!

We're so tickled you'll actually be there!!! We watched the game yesterday between the Bafana Bafana and Uruguay -- the first time we have ever watched a complete soccer game -- and were intrigued by all the passion in the stands. We're sorry South Africa lost -- but the celebrations for Youth Day kind of made up for it. And on ESPN they had a segment about the photographer who took that iconic Soweto photo!

Wirey love,

Jake and Harry -- the BBB
