Well today, we decided to go look at all the baby items we will need (including some we don't, but will keep our Baby amused!!).
I brought the catalogue home, and systematically went through it all, noting everything we needed (& wanted), including furniture for the nursery.
I nearly passed out when I added it all up! £2,500 (approx $4,000).
Bloody hell, I didn't realise!
That's is everything we could possibly need tho, and when we (hopefully) have a 2nd, there won't be such a big expense.
And of course, if I REALLY look after it all, I can resell it.
We're waiting until I'm about 5 months, and given we both work, we don't get any handouts or freebie's - It's much better to be on Benefits in the UK, you get everything free - How fair is that?!! And hardly an incentive for ppl to get off their backsides and go out to work now is it?!
No wonder our Country is full to bursting with illegal immigrants and assylum seekers - Our Govt basically tells them, "come to England, you get a free house, free driving lessons, free furniture, a mobile phone, TV, we pay your rent and council tax, and then pay you some more not to work"
Grrrrrr, makes my blood boil, cos it's us WORKING TAXPAYERS who fund all this!
This country is a SHAM, and I'm emmigrating asap!
Our little Angel :o)
