Re: Getting out of my car lease

As noted by Pulaski, your UK credit will not be affected by your US credit history unless you request it. When I originally moved to the UK back in the early 2000s, I had terrible credit in the US...

Re: Keep fit Britain

Intermittent fasting works for me. No eating after 2pm and I break my fast around 11 am. It's the only thing that has worked for me as I have aged. I've lost 2.5 stone. Read Jason Fung's The Obesity...

Re: My situation

Now is the time to be near family. We have no idea how long this pandemic will last. Many are in the same shoes and any future employer will understand. Don't worry about feeling like a failure...

Re: Location, location, location.

How did you find your holiday flat in France? We are thinking of buying one (maybe Spain, France or Portugal) and then also moving back to the UK for work in the next few years. I had not considered...

My mum has traveled with me in Europe the past couple of years. Most recently to Rome in December (just before Covid :scaredhair:). I was amazed at how many discounts she was able to get as a Senior...

Re: Critique my British Budget!

You can get a quote on bupa.co.uk after putting in some information. For both of us, in our late 40s, it comes out to around 73 GBP per month (so 36.50 each) for the premium plan - so when compared...

Re: Critique my British Budget!

Re: Wanting to move back - sounds like I'm not alone

I was there from 2007, so yes, still during the Bush years. It could have been coincidence though - i.e. perhaps I just met some curmudgeons down south. I do know of some Americans in London who...
