Tomorrows headline ....

Check out the headline in tomorrows edition of the  "Chookyblue Times"    ........... after opening my big mouth and challenging Chookyblue to a little wager over the result of the World Netball Champs held tonight ................ looks like I'm going to be the one doing the stitching..... lol

It was an absolute nail-biter, all tied up at full time with those Diamonds sealing the victory in the last few seconds of extra time ............. virtually a repeat of the Commonwealth Games Gold Medal match, only Aussie pipped us at the finish line this time!

I have to confess to being a bit of a sports nut and almost certainly a very sore loser, but I guess us Kiwis will have to take this one on the chin, and congratulate your Aussie girls on a hard fought win.

So Chooky, any special requests???

LOL..........it sure was nail biting.........Bassett scored the winning goal in the last 2 seconds........I was yelling at her to shoot......

Our station re-run the Gold Medal games before this final game...........that was the most stressful game in the end too........

no special requests and no rush either.........

Shame you lost the bet though I'm sure Chooky is very chuffed! Never mind... you still have the British Grand Prix at Silverstone to look forward to.
You could stitch Chookys prize while you watch!

Hello Nicky,

Better luck next time. I know how you Kiwi's just love your netball.
Have a great week.
Happy days.

I'm feeling your pain Nicky, but we'll get over it, the Aussie's and Kiwis are so far ahead of the other netballing nations their games are always to the wire. We are gutted about the Crusaders, but very proud of them too, roll on the World Cup.

What a shame I didn;t sit up -what a nailbiter...but think that Ma and Pa may not have appreciated me yelling at the TV - their bed is just through the same wall. I find it hard to watch a Silver Fern vs Australia netball game in a quiet ladylike manner!!

ha ha ha, friendly wager huh!!! I am not a sport nutter, I know I am letting the kiwi side down gals, but it just doesn't do it for me.
Now we will be waiting to see what Chooky's prize is!! Plenty of stitching weather abound.

It was almost too tense to watch and it was anybody's game there at the end. Being an Aussie living here in NZ, it was rather satisfying for a change to go to work today with the sports results from the weekend. Usually I face a pretty tough time... I'm sure Chookyblue is looking forward to her mail...
