Shopping, walking and Tim



Hi everyone this is our last full day in Hawaii, we fly out for home tomorrow lunch time and even though I have had a great holiday I am missing my family. We are not the type of people who can be away from our loved ones for more than a week or so, we have spoken to a few other Aussies who have been away from home for 3, 4 or 5 weeks and that is just too long for us.

What’s it like for other people, how long do you like to be away from home and your loved ones? Maybe Tim and I are just strange in that we find a week or so long enough.

While out this morning we bought some gifts for our grandchildren, and I realised something I like to spend money on my family, Tim likes to spend money on him. I don't mean to sound like he doesn't think of his family as he does but mostly he has bought stuff that he wanted, he has spent $33 on clothing and shoes for himself.

Yes I did get myself two pairs of shoes but I was looking at some pants & tops sets today and I wanted Tim’s opinion and he was well you did get those shoes but if you want it, if you think it would fit you than get it. That is the big thing with the clothes you see at the markets I don't know if they will fit or what it would look like on, remember I am a short fat woman and some things look really nice on the hanger but not so nice on the body.

I bought myself a small 6.8oz can of Malibu with pineapple and it is nice I just opened it and had it I added some pineapple to the drink which I got when we went to Macca’s yesterday.

I also notice that I have been having a large breakfast and a very light lunch while Tim has been having a light breaky and wanting lunch like 3hrs later. So for lunch he has been getting burgers with fries and he has the burger and I have the fries.
Tim also wanted to know why I have been applying makeup each morning when we are not going anywhere special I had to explain to him that my makeup has sunscreen in it, so I am wearing it to protect my face from the sun.

  1. Lovely you are enjoying yourselves, and your time away went quickly. Not everyone has the privilege of having family living near by, some people miss that, some don't. We are away on the Sunshine Coast at the moment, family are living in our house whilst we are gone. It is great fun buying all the grandchildren a gift to take home :)

  2. I hope you really enjoyed your holiday. I would find a week too short. We like to stay away a month or more but unlike you we don't have family to leave behind we are usually on our way to visit family when we go on holidays.

    1. I get that if I didn't have my family so close by or if I wasn't as close to my family I could sure go with a longer holiday as I was just getting into the holiday and it was time to head home

  3. Been reading all about your trip and it sounds like you have had a great time, but will be glad to be home. Sounds very expensive in Hawaii!! But I had heard that. Hope you have a peaceful trip home.

    1. It was a little expensive I guess many of the prices were about the same as we would pay here in our part of Aus, the trip home was great and it did feel good to sleep in my own bed

  4. Dear Jo-Anne, I've started using sun screen whenever I leave home because of a program I saw recently on TV about skin cancer. So I say, wear that make-up!

    As to being away from home: 10 days is about my limit! Peace.

    1. The longest I reckon I would be happy being away from home is 2 weeks, I miss my family too much but this last holiday I was just starting to get into the holiday and it was time to leave so could had gone a few more days but it does feel good to be home again.
