    hi janet m
    as long as your husband has capacity to deal with his affairs he is OK to give you permission to deal with all your joint finances as you always have for any kind of transaction
    eg he may not be sure how to use the computer to do online banking but he can sit with you while you do all the key pressing, you are simply enabling him to manage his money - if the account is joint then you are entitled to manage it yourself anyway
    the LPA only really needs to be registered with the bank when your husband no longer has the capacity to understand how to manage his affairs himself even with your help - then you take over control completely

    so I think there's nothing stopping you organising your holiday as you have in the past
