Eavesdropping on yummy mummies

Recommended Posts

White, a yank and an irish bird. Posh part of  London. They’re drinking flat whites, they’re cuddling babies and mentioning their numerous other children...

“We were thinking about buying another place but with the market so down...”

”Yes better not to gamble.”

With the market being so down meaning they don't have enough equity in their current houses to fund a deposit on another one?

Am I reading that right?

Am old friend of mine who became pretty successful in London married a polish yummy mummy who enjoyed regularly posting pictures of Michelin starred meals she was eating, on Facebook. Not on the last year or so though. Not sure what's changed.

The curse of social media performative consumption. Maybe she's gone vegan - harder to find Michelin places :D

Dunno. I just reckon the average plonker with spare dosh is less likely to spend it when the market is going down; they want rising assets. Probably have a feeding frenzy if Brexit ever gets sorted out.

Going off the proclamations of Warren Buffet, identifying this very herd behaviour, this seems about right.
