Re: Pis**d off

Hi PG & everyone

I haven't been on this site for ages so thought I'd take a look at what's been happening.

Re: St Lucia?

I don't think I'd ever want to get that close to Tony Blair or Gordon Brown...or any other member of parliament for that matter. :rofl:

Hi Glittery

Glad to hear you're enjoying life there & congrats on your pregnancy although I don't envy you in that heat!

Re: St Lucia?

We're up the Morne (Fortune) with a fantastic view of the sea. That's the reason we bought there. We love it. The trouble is, when we are over, we tend to spend most of the time sitting on the...

Re: St Lucia?

Thanks AZ

We were really upset when we heard we'd been robbed but, quite honestly, a lot of the stuff they took had been left by the previous owner.

They took 2 safes that we didn't get round...

Re: Buying a home in US Dollars in St Lucia

When we paid for our house, we transferred the US$ direct from our bank to the vendors bank & paid £23 to our bank for doing so (pretty cheap we thought). I don't know if they got charged their side....

Re: Swimming Pools

That's ridiculous. £30+ for a pool that size!
We may look at having a pool at roughly the same size but there's no way it can be that expensive, surely not. If it is, then that's that idea out the...

Congratulations to you both. I'm sure you'll have a fantastic time in St Lucia.

Actually, at today's rate, it equates to approx. £240!! I tend to go with the larger rental companies as I am paranoid about having an accident & ending up with a huge bill. It's only a...
