Vuvuzela

If you follow me on Facebook, you will know that I’m not a fan of the Vuvuzela.   I appreciate the fact that it is South African.  I appreciate the fact that when you blow one, you will most probably somewhere, hear one reply.

I don’t appreciate the constant noise.  If they would use it when a goal was scored, I’d be all for it btw.

I do however feel very proudly South African at the moment.  I love seeing our flags everywhere.  On hats, cars, houses, clothes.  Everywhere.  I love it.

I love the way sport can bring people together. 

I thought that since this is such a big occasion and one that my boys will look back on when they are older, I’d let them blow the Vuvuzela …… (mostly for photographic purposes!!! hahhaha)

I had to laugh when a black man walked by and saw Quintus blowing the Vuvuzela.  “Oh little white boy can do it!”  lol  I had to smile

  1. I also hate the sound of those things. They’ve been going here the whole day and it is really getting on my nerves. I agree that blowing the thing when a goal is scored would be appreciated.

    Nice pics though.

  2. Now it has started and it’s a bug, there are a couple of petitions online to ban the vuvuzela from the World Cup. Here’s one:

  4. We have banned the Vuvu from our home. It’s been a wise decision.

  5. I also banned my kids from blowing theirs in the house, but I do regress … I tried to blow it and when I got it right, I blew a few more times, until the children reminded me that its not allowed 😉
