Diary of a homeowners vacation - 2
Thursday Day 2
……was an uneventful day to start with, up early as you do on day 1 but manged til after 6 am, just pottered around then decided mid morning that shopping was the order of the day as I had been here over 12 hours, so off I went off with car keys, cards in hand and a bottle of water…. . . hey what else do you need?
Decided to go over to North Orlando for a mooch. Roads were empty and had a straight forward drive in the brilliant sunshine as the temp was high 80s…phew. Aircon on and beloved K92FM blaring out……I just love the feeling of driving on the big wide roads with the sun beating down and not a care in the world, it certainly lifts the spirits! !
Had the day planned like a military operation so spent the first couple of hours wandering around filling up the trolley to bursting point doing my Christmas shopping and it was a case of one for Mum one for me, one for Dad 3 for me, one for hubby 6 for me…. you get the picture! Needles to say I have added to the shoe and hand bag collection as well as a hundred other things I really needed! This was not a clothes shop either I shall do that next week!
I then decided to have some lunch so went to a Caribbean place which was yummy.
Eventually shopped out in a few more stores and before I knew it it was almost 8 pm so I set off my favourite Caribbean Grocery store to get my fix of treats from the Tropics and come 9 pm I was being helped out of the shop as they were closing! !
I then drove back to the house in the dark no probs as the roads are so big and so wide it's a doddle. It was too late really to visit anyone, so folks were still not aware I was here yet! I got home and was too tired to unpack the car as it was full apart from the passenger seat. The trunk was full to the brim, 4 deep in bags. I love the shopping but I hate unpacking it.
I did however get into trouble when I got home as our friends were not expecting me and wondered who was in the house! We then caught up and had a lovely chat and I fell into bed after midnight ready for the next days adventures.
