A WOMAN has converted her loft space to avoid having to live with her family.
Eleanor Shaw of Worcester said: “It was that or starting a new life in France, but the exchange rate is a bit crap. And it would be less handy for popping back to help with spelling homework on a Sunday night.
“Actually, I suppose I could have just asked them all to stop shouting, arguing over Lego and winding me up in a variety of different ways.
“Or I could have worked harder on the family dynamic and got us all to be nicer, calmer people. But it felt easier to hire an architect, get quotes from builders and then spend fifty grand.
“All I need up here is a stash of Toblerone and a kettle, and I’ll never need to go downstairs again.”
