Hello I am back, did you miss me?
I have been sick, busy and sick, yes I got really sick with the flu twice this year
that 4th strain of the flu they promised turned out to be really bad and I got to
test it out and boy it wasn't nice. Hopefully I am immune to it and built a stronger
system to cope with any in the future until it mutates again.
I have also been to Fiji in July since my last WOYWW I posted in June and had a
wonderful time for a week.
It was a mini family reunion with cousins and their kids from
Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide and Scotland.
I will post photos at the end of this post so if you don't want to see them you can skip it
after my desk photo.
Each invite and thank you card is hand crafted and individually cut...no short cuts what so ever.
Joining up with Julia's Stamping Ground for more desk peeks.
Fiji Ah Sam Family Reunion 2016
This is the view looking out to sea
This was how close we were to the beach, we had our own private beach
Looking at the house from the beach
Open plan kitchen, with vaulted ceilings
We had a welcome part and farewell party by the staff. The owners Shaan (the purple tshirt) and Jess (striped top) are such a wonderful couple. The workers sang us welcome and farewell songs which was so beautiful to hear the harmonizing
We went to the Hideaway hotel and had cocktails (mocktails for me), they were $20 but well worth it, nowhere else have I tasted mocktails as wonderful as this. I call it a Tropical Fruit cocktail.
My daughter Keira and cousin Sharon enjoying the hammocks at the villa, I couldnt lie on them as they made me motion sick hahahaha
Fresh coconut to drink, so yummy and refreshing and so good for you
My cousins Debbie and Sharon and daughter Keira walked out onto the reef just in front of the villa and found this natural bar of coral
Thats the whole family reunion, I miss the kids, sadly I wont be able to see the Scotland nieces and nephews for a long time. probably when they are teenagers.
