The Landed Gentry

imageOh dear, it looks as though Rae and I will be up against the wall when the revolution finally comes. Yes, we will soon be part of the landed gentry.

Today we signed our lives, and an obscenely large amount of cash, over to a real estate agent to secure our own plot of this earth. We won’t be building straight away, hopefully that will start early next year but for now we can spend our weekends sitting amongst the weeds and dreaming of the house to come.

  1. May I be the first to point out that there is a huge green arrow on your property and I think you should get that removed before building?

    Congratulations guys … you are living the dream … soon!

  2. Why is there an inverted pine tree on your block? Or am I viewing the picture upside down?

    Congratulations and I hope you’re looking forward to building.

  3. That’s fantastic – now you just have to find yourself a Scarlet Pimpernel to keep you safe from the maraudering hordes who can’t afford Victorias housing prices.

  4. Congratulations!

    Good job you bought land, they aren’t making it anymore (nod to Mark Twain).

    Let the peasants eat cake, I say….
