Hi all on our first
Wednesday of the cruise we spent most of the day busy with our shore
excursion first after breakfast we had to line up and trust me it was
a long ass line to change Aussie dollars into Fijian dollars then we
had to go ashore and board a bus for our sight seeing tour.
Sitting in front of
us (me and mum) was (Jonathon) ok not Jono but the guy who looks a
lot like Jono no reason for telling you all that other then it popped
into my head. Anyway both mum and I had trouble getting on and off
the bus just saying. The bus drove around the island and stopped at
the museum and we all got off and wondered around the museum and
after we finished walking around we sat and had a Coke Zero and a
chocolate custard cake by we I mean mum and me, neither Tim nor dad
wanted to try it, I can tell you it was very nice.
We then stopped at some
other shops for 10 minutes before heading back to the ship, although
Tim decided to walk back to the ship it was only a 5 minute walk to
the ship but mum, dad and myself couldn't manage to walk any more.
After returning to the
ship I came back to my cabin and took my shoes off and then I headed
up to Deck 12 to get something to eat to tie me over to tea, mum and
dad came up too and while there Jonathon sat near us and mum said
there’s Jono well the guy who looks like Jono and then dad asked
what mum said and she repeated it and of course the guy could here us
talking and started to have a laugh.
After lunch we went
down to deck 5 to have a few cocktails and chat which is were Tim
found us when he arrived back at the ship.
Speaking of Tim he is
being plagued by a toothache and is pretty doped out on pain relief,
he went to the medical centre and they said he could see the doctor
but there is no dentist on board and all they could give him for pain
relief was paracetamol or ibuprofen and I said to him you got
stronger pain medication from mum she has Panadol Forte and Endone.
He has arranged to see
a dentist tomorrow when we are at port cost will be between $100-150
Only 5 days to my
special girls birthday, still have no idea what to give her in way of
Back to pain relief or
more so pain, I have been in so much pain the last couple of days in
my knees and lower back and nothing much helps mostly not all the
bloody walking we have to do each day our cabin is at one end of the
ship the forward end and the food is at the other end of the ship the
Aft so a long way from the cabin to food in the morning.
I have been walking
down the stairs when I am on my own or with Tim but when I am with
mum and dad I take the lift as mum can't manage the stairs.
Oh yeah nearly forgot
when I wanted to go to the toilet earlier we were on deck 5 and the
toilet is on deck 4 or deck 7 anyway I went to deck 4 but forgot
that, that was were people were boarding the ship so couldn't use
that toilet but one of the cleaners told me I could use the toilet on
deck 4 and took me to it but of course it was locked so I walked back
to go up to deck 7 and one of the women who handling people as they
boarded ran up and said I had to go back and go through the metal
detector again and the cleaner said no no she came from upstairs not
from ashore so it was ok and I was allowed to return to deck 5. I
knew I would have to go to deck 7 to use the toilet I don't know why
there isn't one on deck 5 which is the deck reception is on.
