Woooo hoooo!!! The Socceroos won 2-0 against Uzbekistan in Sydney last night (1 April 09) in a World Cup Qualifying match. Australia is now top of the group with 13 points, only one more point required (in the next three matches) in order to qualify for the finals of the FIFA World Cup!!!

We were there, to cheer on our heroes :-), at the Sydney Olympic Stadium in Homebush with a Horde of 12 family members; one from Sydney, one from Melbourne and ten from Canberra. Awesome to see all the big names like Lucas Neill, Harry Kewell, Mark Schwarzer, Bresciano, Scott McDonald, Wilkshire, Cullina and Josh Kennedy.
It was a very loooong day. I left work at 2:30pm, picked the kids up from school and DH from work and we headed out of Canberra at about 3:30pm. We only just made it to our seats for the national anthems at 8:00pm, it took the whole of the last hour to get off the M4 and into a booked carpark, traffic congestion!! After the game we had a picnic and disco at the car ;-) waiting for the traffic to subside and headed back to Canberra, arriving home at 2:00am. Believe it or not we all made it to school and work today, albeit a little worse for wear. Time to crawl back to bed, good night...zzz
