Living in Australia come @FIFAWorldCup time means: 1) setting 4 alarms to wake up at seriously ridiculous hours and 2) drinking more coffee than ever consumed before over a period of four weeks.

I'm a fan of watching 88% of the matches as it's such an epic event and I want to experience all the major plays, controversial calls and brilliant saves in real time, not via the highlights on the news.

When I woke up at 5:00am AEST on Saturday to watch the Spain vs Netherlands match, I made the first of many later cups of coffee to come and immediately thought of @livscreams (the master!) Liv inspired this (below amateur) #groundcoffeeart attempt of the official ball as my entry into @instagram's current Weekly Hashtag Project, #WHPgameon.

I have to admit, growing up, I followed Italian Serie A and was a mega fan of Juventus, so I secretly have a soft spot for Italy come World Cup time, however, despite the devastating loss to Chile, I am proud of the efforts (especially in the 2nd half) by the GREEN n' GOLD @Socceroos! #AussieAussieAussieOiOiOi #GoodbyeSleepHelloFifaWorldCup
