Loyalty

(posted by Elizma)

As South Africa took on England in rugby today, we were faced with the question: Who will we support?

At first, Leon didn't want to commit to either, but I forced him to choose...

South Africa won hands down.

So six years and British Citizenship has not taken away that national pride. We are probably born with it and it deepens so much over time, I don't think we will ever lose it.

We supported South Africa wholeheartedly all through the game - cheering when they do well and shouting at them when they mess up. None of the passion lost.

But that won't stop us from sending 'Go England!' text messages to our friends and family in South Africa before a big game. Face it - we love their reactions - and boy do they react...

We have been here a mere 20 months and we sit with the same struggle - especially with the Bok's performance lately...
