We keep hearing lots of hype on the news about this and I wanted o get some personal views, not just what the media want me to think.
I kind of get the feeling there are no news storyís going on so the media keep harping on about the recession until some celebrity does something bad.
Iím not specifically looking for good or bad experiences just put how you feel your countryís economy (more importantly your pocket) is doing.
In the UK:
Houses seem very difficult to sell, nobody is buying as they all want to wait to find out what is going to happen with the economy.
The £ has lost a lot of value to the $ and euro but strangely not to the OZ $ or SA rand.
Petrol was sky high at £1.28 per litre but now itís better at £0.94 a litre.
Food is the worst area, a weeks groceries used to cost £50 it now easily costs £75 and thatís with us being careful.
It does seem like I have a lot less money, I never have cash to waste even though Iím earning more that I ever have.
