My DH and I have talked about going to England as a family for so long. But dang it, if the British Pound is so expensive in comparison to the dollar. Sigh.

I am going to hope and pray that some things shift this year and maybe we can go in 2009 or maybe 2010.

If we go I hope BritishMama can meet us for tea.

I love England. It would be awesome to go as a family. I will dream with you.

Tracy 01-14-2009 06:36 PM

I would love to get a little boat and ride the locks with DH and DS.

guestmama9920 01-14-2009 06:52 PM

Well right now the pound sucks so it's an awesome time to go! I get free calls so when your bored I can ring you up and give you all the info anyone could ever want.

If you bring me loads of nice cheap yank goods and some olive garden breadsticks your ticket may just be cheaper, but you'd better come quick if you'd like tea cause we want to move back to CA

Tracy 01-14-2009 07:07 PM

I think Asianyoushi should go to England. It is the same climate I think.

mysticmomma 01-14-2009 07:39 PM

i want to go to england too.

Tracy 01-14-2009 07:46 PM

Doesn't Asianyoushi live in the pacific northwest which is rainy and a bit cloudy and I believe, that is similiar to England, no?

gardenmom 01-14-2009 07:46 PM

I want to go to England too, but just as a visitor I think, not to live.

Maggirayne 01-14-2009 07:47 PM

Me three!

mysticmomma 01-14-2009 07:48 PM

guestmama9920 01-14-2009 07:48 PM

DreamsInDigital 01-14-2009 08:03 PM

I am so there!

Tracy 01-14-2009 08:08 PM

I worked on a project and we sent some people to Avon and the area around there.. are those highlands, Britishmama..now i can't remember. It looked beautiful. They rode bikes everywhere and the sun was up until 10!

I'm trying to hang in there. I'm hoping for an Aquarius baby but depending on how things go tomorrow at the doctor I may end up with a Capricorn. Of course I will keep you posted. If I go straight to the hospital my husband knows how to post for me

asianyoushi 01-14-2009 11:37 PM

hi everyone i am gonna be scarce i have 30 days to move... so packing and cleaning and find a place to live is all i am gonna be doing.... hopefully when hh starts up again i will be in a better place.

mum5 01-14-2009 11:44 PM

Can I go too please? I am British, but been in the Us for 13 years now. Have a DH, and 2 dd's and no one has been over there yet!!
It would be too much for us financially right now.

DreamsInDigital 01-14-2009 11:53 PM

One thing I forgot. I have a really sweet friend named flapjack that lives in England and after all that she's been through with me over the years I'd love to meet her and hug her and have some scones and tea!

Yes, I hear you about the money. The British have always been so much better about their money than us. That is why the exchange rate kills us!

Ellamakes3, are you in a climate like England here?

Asianyoushi,
I am sorry about the move. Send me a PM and I will take a look at your chart.

asianyoushi 01-15-2009 12:46 AM

thanks. its slowly going.. i pack one box.... dump two bags of trash.... trying to not hoard things anymore. everything has a time and purpose and if its not been used in a LONG time its gone... need to simplify everything especailly since i have no idea where we are going... one option is moving in with my parents but they have a ton of use less junk and not enough storage( they are using the 2 out of 3 bedrooms as walk in storage closets.....)

We moved 4 times in one year. Nothing like that to get you to declutter and let go! : to you.

In june it was $410 ish for 250 GBP

now? It's 350 ish for 250 GBP

HUGE difference, not good for brits who like cheap yankie stuff but pretty good if you wanna visit here!

Tracy 01-15-2009 01:27 PM

yes, it is better now. That is for sure! But the problem over here is the possibility of inflation and job insecurity. Which actually is everywhere.

And we are not done. Astrologically speaking it is sooo NOT done.

The worse the pound gets the richer we are, since our clients are in Cali

I took part in my very first MBOY! I got a gc from my mil to a local yarn shop, so I was dying to go spend it. Here are my pictures!

Cool stuff! I assume MBOY is a swap of some kind? (I'm a dork about the abbreviations, sorry.

So you're a knitter too, huh?

edited to add that I bet there are some great yarn shops in ENGLAND. Lots of sheep too....

MBOY is "magical ball of yarn" you take some pretty yarn, knitting notions and other treats and wrap them up together. A google search will bring up some more info and pics!
