We have "friends" who live 1.5m - 3m homes Show Houses which every day/week/month & year look like a Strutt & Parker or Savills Property Sales "set" Never a "home" ; they barely spend much time there, working long hours and travelling into London on the train every week day - hardly see their children ... who are at minders or nursery until school and age 7 go to boarding school only to be seen when the school Inconveniences Parents with extra long holidays, far more than state school children

kitchens are installed which cost upwards from 58,000 and they are not cooked in, more than once a week and most often, then by a "paid chef to cook for a dinner party"

Often these big houses are so darn COLD - rarely getting the heating on as a) owners only there to sleep week day nights and b) it COST an absolute fortune to heat in excess of 5,000 sq ft homes

Give a snug sitting room and a wood burner anyday in a cute cottage thats a real home to me and LIVED IN daily
