Doesn't seem to be as much as an arsole as old Liz, but a £120k credit card debt...ruddy nora...why a single person needs a 6 bedroom house, I never know..

As 'feel sorry for me' pieces go, this one is pretty lame. Here is someone who has pissed money away eyewatering sums of money all her life, and is bemoaning her situation despite believing she has £150k equity and a huge pension she can draw in 6 months time.

I would say not as unusual as you might think....thousands live lives like this, more often on a smaller scale....same mindset though....love risk, excitement, adventure and change.....therefore got to take the good as well as the bad....change is not always good, always.

I read the article and felt she was a stupid cow but was surprised that the talk of friends at the end a little touching.

Why would anyone earning that type of money would not first secure themselves by paying the mortgage off on her chosen property is beyond me. But then again I will work all my life to do exactly that!

I similarly find it incomprehensible how anyone would buy a book giving financial advice from someone who has no real understanding of the value of money.

Written simply to infuriate the reader. Succeeds in a hundred different ways. Job done.

Quite.

Surprised that anyone believes a single word,

other than she is trying to sell a house,

and perhaps relaunch a flagging career,

although I'm unsure quite how an article pretending to be a stupid 'bint' will help.....

Why is it that the most useless people in society get paid the most?

I think they tend to inhabit the extremes. Confidence and capability are often an inverse relationship...the capable people do the middle rung bread and butter stuff, the confidence people do occupy the top...but due to shortage's of such roles, they also infest the bottom.

Agreed. Its pathetic these boomer's rode the bubble...a 1 in a 1000 year opportunity, and still manage to screw up.

People degrade the millenials. The boomers are the true feckless generation.

1 bedroom used as an office, another as an extra lounge room, it seems.

Even if she has spread it on thick in the article about her financial position, still a confirmed house on market asking less than 2007 purchase price, although numbers which make my mind dizzy.... all these hundreds and hundreds of thousands of pounds, for old and not particularly attractive house, way out where.

Below; lot of spending along the way too it seems - not just slog - so many bedrooms for just 1 person? I know it happens as a couple we know upsized not long ago to a large 4 bed; no kids - probably one reason they could stretch to afford it (around half a million pounds) in one of the best school areas- but why? Status imo.

The house that was bought after years of hard slog. The house of my dreams. My pride and joy.

Two weeks on, I’m still crying, off and on. How can I not? I’m 56, single, broke and soon to be homeless. [..] No husband, partner, children or ties.

I bought a job lot of pine furniture to fill up the many rooms, because he said it was his favourite wood.

:lol:

I've heard of giving someone wood, but that's ridiculous!

Its all his fault....cheapskate pine lover..should have filled the rooms with sandalwood.
