My Hpc Mum

Recommended Posts

Had to call around to my Mum's today to collect something I was storing (a part-worn tyre).

She had an appointment elsewhere so wasn't in, but this is what she left me in the kitchen (along with a jar of coffee to take) next to the kettle.

She owns her small house outright, but has 4 non-owning children 32-40 who thought it was right to save, whilst so many were happily caught up in the malinvestment saying house prices double every few years.

She wants grandchildren before she is too old to enjoy them. Expensive houses mean 2 people working and less incentive to have children.

I think a lot of us get this sort of input from our parents. They have only ever known rising prices.

How long has it taken you to indoctrinate her?

Ace mum!

My mums finally seen the writing on the wall and I think now appreciates and sympathises with the situation im in. My father however is still a typical boomer **shole who is convinced that despite 7 years of sacrifices and hard core saving his son is just being lazy and not saving enough......

A commendable attitude to austerity displayed here.
