We're going shopping this morning. With the exchange rate as awful as it is right now, there was no way I was going to pay so much for many of the sale items in the UK. I did get one short excursion to Lakeside when I was over there, but the one store where I was tempted had queues that lasted for 45 minutes (no kidding, that's how long Craig queued while I was looking around). Between the idea of paying $110 for a skirt I loved but would never wear and having to wait that long to pay them for it, I was out of there.
I don't expect to really find huge deals. Frankly, there is nothing like appreciating the value of something when you have to pay twice/more in a different country, lol. Alicia doesn't want to go, but we've already told her it's a family morning out. She pulled her little martyr act (she's been pulling it more and more the past couple months, I thought Craig was going to disown her in the UK, lol) but oh well.
I posted a a ton of news for us over on our Weekly Roundup at our pro blog. Did you know you get the chance to win a free book from us just by commenting? We're doing it every week.
