700K? Hardly enough to justify using "we". are you the butler, per chance?
We are well within the respected law of the land when we refer to ourselves as we!!!!
Our home is worth approx 700k and this is a conservative estimate!!!
We are not claiming to be rich and we do not have a butler!!
We do have three new/ish cars in our humble home - we work a 30 hour week - two international holidays a year - a gardener - odd job woman - cleaner - ironing lady - but not a butler as we cannot justify the cost and it would clash with our private lives!!!!!!
We have in the region of 200k in cash - no shares as we went 100% a week before the infamous 9/11 terror attack. We have saving schemes that are worth in excess of 150k if we were to cash them in today. Couple of pension schems - but we are not well oof to an extent where we could retire and live comfortably.
our home is relatively cheap comparded to most homes in london. However, if we were to Blackheath SE3, on the exclusive Cator estate that is a very large gated community with private roads - we could by a relatively nice property near our brothers home for about 600k - the most expensive peoperty on that estate is approx 2 million and cheapest is 350k.
We've worked hard and not really made a penny from the stock market or peoperties - we are relatively happy with our humble stauts and humble 27k , c class MB, as we are not of the type of buy today and sell tomorrow like chavs who can't afford the goods.
Envy us if you must, but decent students will know that we've worked hard for a basic standard of living!!!!!!!
