World Cup Sleeplessness
This morning I got up at 4.30am and snuggled on the couch under my sleeping bag with a cup of tea to watch Australia vs Germany in the Football World Cup. Aside from one or two moments, there wasn't a lot to smile about in the game. But what I did like was that while I might have been alone in my lounge room I was in the company of hundreds of thousands of Australians, right across the country, all of whom had woken up at ungodly hours to watch a game of football. Nation bonding at its best!
