The BBC saw fit to inform us this morning that
60% of men [or some such figure, and was it 40% of women] are now living at home. Where the hell else would they live? If that many people were actually homeless we really would be in serious shite.
What they were actually getting at was the number of people [of what ages? Didn't say] still living with their parents. Whether this genuinely constitutes a problem, rather than just a new twist on common family/social structures that weren't really abandoned that long ago, I am unsure.
Weekend was wonderful, mainly spent being Catholic at the Cathedral, save for acquiring a summer cold which, while coming back on the train from a day-jaunt to my mother's on Monday somehow turned into a raging fever. Am now mainly recovered (just in time for Pashazade to start coming down with same) but am feeling utterly shattered, so much so that I haven't yet summoned up the energy to formulate a polite response to an instructing solicitor's email criticising some trust drafting and asking for more documents. At the moment, mental drafts begin "you are a cretin" which is possibly not the best way to correspond with those who pay me.
