    The pound seems to buy less dollars than ever, it was a real shock when we looked :( does anyone have any idea whether to buy now or wait until later in the year when we go to get some? I know its guesswork but :((

    I will be happy if it goes back up to 1.50 and think myself lucky that we are able to go at all even though we will have to cut way back.

    I think there will be small rises, but certainly not back to the unsustainable levels of this last year..... post 9/11 we were getting 1.34 so it's really just going back to normal, but just happened at an alarmingly fast rate !!

    The Aussie gained 3 cents against the US overnight - figures when I've already paid for some of my Thailand things in USD. Ah well. :sorry:
