Bula! (Hello)

Over the last couple of days we have continued to relax, sunbathing,eating and getting drunk at the pool with the new friends we have met. 

Friday 28th, We treated ourselves to a massage in a local village half a mile down the beach from our hotel. We went into the home of a Fijian lady called Cilla who has 6 children. We entered the massage room and we laid on 2 of the childrens beds while Cilla and another lady gave us an hour long full body massage. The price was $80 fijian in total but we gave $100 (30). Great experience and giving a little to the community.

Later that afternoon when we came back i was reading my book and talking with Tam and Sarah our new friends and Jeff was in the pool with Mick and Steve, a couple of hours later we noticed the boys where a little drunk.We left them to it and went to our rooms, much later Jeff arrives at the room very very drunk! He couldnt even speak properly and 10 mins later he was in the bathroom being violently sick! After being sick he went to bed and slept for 3 hours while i was sat waiting for him to wake up, as you can imagine i wasnt very impressed with him but i still dragged him for dinner. After dinner he had to go back to bed so that was the end of that day.

Saturday 29th, My birthday and Jeff went fishing with the boys which was great as i had a lay in.He had a great time and caught 3 fish, he was very pleased when he got back. We then sat in the sun and my birthday cake arrived, a lovely chocolate cake made by the hotel. We had a few drinks again at the pool bar. I thought we was going for a Japanese meal with the guys tonight but Jeff told me he had a surprise. He had booked the Romantic dinner at the Bure. So off i went to get ready later we went to the reception and was escorted to the table which was beautifully decorated with flowers and candles. We ate our first and second course and Jeff asked me what do you think i have got your for your birthday and i said nothing, then he got on one knee and said " will you marry me?" my response was "are you being serious?" then he had a tear in his eye and took out a little wooden fijian ring and i realised he was. Of course my answer was YES, i still cant believe it now when i am writing it, we had a bottle of champagne and celebrated with our friends and people at the bar. A perfect evening one neither of us will ever forget.

Later that evening i also found out he had called my Dad and asked his permission, how sweet and thank god my Dad said yes! 
Today Sunday the 30th we have both been in a daze and very excited.

So guys get your best clothes out as there will be a wedding soon! But dont worry we wont be doing it while we are away.


Lynds and Jeff x
