I have been reading the posts for a while and they seem to be getting more and more downbeat, for us lot coming over it makes pretty depressing reading, I am a realist but the things mentioned, especially cost of living are pretty much now a world wide thing. My weekly shopping bill is well over £100 a week for a family of four, diesel and petrol hover around the £1.05 per litre (in Norfolk which is expensive, I know) even a loaf of bread is at least £1.25 for a named brand. You get no return on savings (only because we are lucky enough to have sold our house, otherwise we wouldn't have any) and days out with the kids are getting few and far between. I really do think that everything now is probably comparable and when the exchange rate picks up and everyone starts converting at 2.5 again will life seem a little better?? Please someone give us a glimmer of hope at the end of the tunnel, it is a long journey in stress and experiences and of course the miles to travel for the end goal!!
If your happy and you know it clap your hands!! :)
