Is It Me Or Are Houses No Longer Homes ?

Recommended Posts

We went to a BBQ yesterday, friends of my children's they have 2 daughters 6 and 4 yrs.

There was absolutely no evidence of the girls existence in the entire house until you got to their bedrooms which were painted a very stylish off white and co ordinated with linen white curtains, totally impractical and wouldn't keep the light out at all.

I left thinking that people now style their homes purely to add value rather than actually live in them, what memories will those children have of the family home, that they weren't allowed to live in it ?

Missus greencat is somewhat suseptible to this too (although generally quite sensible). Bought some pale curtains for the bedroom. Utterly useless - woke up at 4am the first night they were up. They have now been covered up with some slightly less fashionable old duvet covers until I can be bothered to take them down and replace them with something that actually stop light getting through.

They won't need memories. If the current house price:wage ratio sustains itself they'll never leave :lol:

Your right, houses are an investment/fashion statment not homes any more, fully influenced by the media and advertizing gurus like every other aspect of life in modern Britain, was just over in Austria and people over there dont think in these terms, the majority have state provided rental accomodation which in effect keeps the house prices for those that want to buy at a sane level, ie if what theyre selling is too pricey then we will carry on renting with no detriment, ie the big difference between the UK and much of continental Europe is that our housing market has no local competition (cheap rental housing). This was taken away by a previous govt and replaced with right-to-buy. So in most countries in Europe people just dont talk much about it at all, just like in Vienna they dont talk about the transport system, cause it works and its cheap.
