A COUPLE have admitted they may have too much spare cash after deciding to refurbish their shower room for the third time in 10 years.
Martin and Louise Bishop stressed that as soon as the ‘vital’ work is finished they may begin to re-examine their attitude towards having this level of disposable income.
Louisa Bishop said: “We’re converting our en-suite from a walk in shower to a wet room with underfloor heating. To tell you the truth, I thought they were all the same thing. I don’t even know what I’m paying for anymore.
“In the family bathroom, the Jacuzzi could do with a bit of sprucing up, but I really do think we have reached the point where we could do something else with the money. I’m not offering to pay more tax, I’m just thinking out loud.”
Martin Bishop said: “It’s a dreadful dilemma. We’ve worked our way through the entire catalogue of the John Lewis ‘Home’ collection, but what on earth do we now?
“You’d think there would be a charity for people like us, but we’re expected to just cope on our own.”
