We went looking at a few other homes here in Cambourne yesterday. It’s amazing what the English put up with when it comes to housing. There are so many things that you have to pay extra for that the “default” home is practically useless. I’ve already talked about useless bathrooms but now they’ve managed to go and make the “default” bathroom in a shiny new, Â£200.000+ home even more useless—there’s no longer a hand-held shower, the “new basic standard” is a tap. And the prices for “upgrades” are extortionate. Now if the housing market in the UK isn’t in dire need of a serious price adjustment then I don’t know what is.

Now, what’s wrong with the following:
- A hand-held shower in a bath tub.
- No shower curtain.
- Partial tiling around the bath tub, exposing dry wall at about 1 metres height.
- Thick, lush carpet on the floor.
Everything is wrong! If you don’t see that every one of those things, taken in isolation, is wrong then you’re most probably English! And, no! Four wrongs don’t make a right!
The amazing thing is that I’ve just described a large number of bathrooms in newly built homes in the area where we live. And they seem to be in use. I don’t see how, unless you shower in fetal position.
