Over the last 8 weeks
New Zealand has hosted the
2011 Rugby World Cup

On Sunday our team
the All Blacks
beat France
in a nail biting final
to become

This is the illustrious trophy
the Webb Ellis Gold Cup.
It will stay in New Zealand
until the next event in
four years time in
LONDON 2015!!

Huge celebrations and
our time to party!!

Auckland celebrated
with a wonderful
ticker tape parade

When the All Blacks
play an international game
it is preceded with
their tradition
(a Maori war dance intended to
frighten the opposition!)

The supporters all entered into
the spirit of the occasion.
Many New Zealand faces were
painted black and white!!

The French supporters
were out in force too!!

It has been a wonderful
8 weeks, with so many
visitors here from all over
the world.
New Zealand enjoyed hosting
everyone who made the
long journey to our
little corner of the world!!

Thank you my dear friends for visiting my blog.
The plaster has now gone - Yea!!!
I will enjoy catching up with you all again very soon.
Be kind to one another
