“If you look at our lives from the outside it looks like one thing,” says Mark. “It’s a kind of chimera really. I live in a nice flat in Islington, but I don’t own it. I’m cruising around London in a lovely Mercedes, which is a minicab that the bank owns 90 per cent of.”

Goodness, is living in a flat & driving a car ‘living the dream’ these days? No wonder people are so depressed.

Moral of the story is, don’t live in the most unaffordable place in the country. Were I live in the north, home ownership and owning a Mercedes is very doable.

So buy a smaller/less expensive car instead of inflating your ego; live in your means! Pay off your debits !!
