Busy Busy old me…
Well the last week has been a hive activity around me, I’ve been preparing myself to go back to work. I’ve charged up my laptop, phone and checked the batteries in my DVR just in case and all my work clothes are ironed and ready for my return next week.
We’ve also picked up the holiday tickets for Las Vegas which is also on the horizon, less than 2 weeks to go before we jet off to a much sunnier climate. “The Beloved” has also received confirmation for the tickets to see Bette Midler while we’re there on the 16th, which is the Friday night. He’s managed to get tickets 10 rows from the front and almost, but not quite, central. My inner excitement is beginning to boil!
I’ve also now exchanged my pounds for dollars, which always is the last but one step to going away, the last step is to actually pack my suitcase, which this year I’m restricted to 23kilos, which isn’t much. I’m not known for packing lightly!
The exchange rate for GBP to USD has been fluctuating wildly for the past week or so, but I think I got a good deal with mine. I managed to get $1.573 to £1, so I’m not complaining, but it’s a far cry from the $1.971 I got a year or so ago!
I just wish I could open up a US bank account as I’d transfer money to it on a monthly basis, that way I wouldn’t have to worry about the exchange rate ever again! I just need a US address to open one, but I guess that’s a little way off at the moment! One can still dream!
