    If you had as much money to SPARE, as the amount of posts you have made.

    I have, but can't decide on anything of that amount. Been spending a lot lately.

    Complete revamp and update of the house, with a designer to organise it.

    The only thing I'd keep would be the lovely old chesterfield. Dining room and kitchen are fine, too. We had them done last year.

    I have a son with various problems. I have been offered respite for him, but refused it.
    It makes me very cross that it is NOT offered to everyone, and I have to question WHY?
