I now live in a very middle class part of London. They like naming their little houses. There is a buckingham house next to us. There are plenty of houses named after saints. In short, the more twee the house, the more twee the name. When I buy a house here. I am going to call mine, "Squalor and Gore Cottage". I'll be the envy of every garden party and fete.

  1. Having recently re-located in a suburb of one of Europe's megaburbs, I too feel the sting of twee-titles.

    I have no idea how anyone successfully throws a party at a place called "Windmere," "Saint Annes Garden" or "The Dales."

    Incidentally, spoken to the Grade-School Role Model lately?
