Patf Posted November 24, 2010 Share Posted November 24, 2010 I got quite a shock the other day when I called at a neighbour's house to ask after the wife's health, as I'd heard she had been ill.Never been to the house before - inside was so dark and basic, though it was warm from the stove. And it was apparently clean too, but so gloomy and cave-like.They are a couple in their 80s so I suppose living on a very limited income. I know he sold some of his woodland recently to raise some money.But it made me realise the huge gap in standard of living, between what we and they put up with. No wonder there's jealousy of the british, and they think we're all rich.Is it the same in the towns? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
