My sister invited me along on her New Zealand trip. At first it sounded great, but the more I thought about it, the more I realised that being cooped up in a motor home with three other adults and two children, and hiking up glaciers, really wasn't my thang.
I could go back to Coffs for a visit, and catch up with friends. There are a couple of places I could stay, but then most of my friends work and I don't want to wear out my welcome with the friends who don't work. I'd like to keep them as friends a little bit longer!
I could stop being so damn tight and spend some money on a tropical holiday somewhere nice. Fiji is relatively cheap, as are some of the northern Queensland resorts. But I don't know if I'd enjoy it so much, going by myself. And most of my friends are married so I'd feel dumb asking them to come along. Even the one who played Louise to my Thelma when I visited ezekiel in Griffith - she'd be my preferred companion, but she is saving up for a huge tour with her hubby.
What I DON'T want to do is waste the time just sitting on my bum at home. But guess what I'll end up doing....
