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.

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

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

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

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!


DreamsinDigital, great to see you.. how are you doing? Think the baby can hold out for Aquarius?

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

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.

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.

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

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

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

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!
