I’ve just spent the morning hanging out with our bank, then chatting long-distance with several staff members of my American credit card, and now have a big fat cheque on its way to the US to free us from the last of my US financial burdens.
We’ve been watching the US dollar exchange rate for about a year and the time is right to use the roughly 2:1 ratio to our advantage. Our bank was able to give us $1.9898 to the ¬£1. Not too shabby. Makes debt a whole lot less painful if you can essentially cut it in half, let me tell you.
What a day. We’ve been clearing debts on both sides of the ocean and still have enough for the Tesco delivery. Life is good and getting better all the time! Hooray! 😀
