Anyway, silly names aside, I am still partly reliant on my parents despite being old enough to be one myself, a point that my mother never tires of making. \”You know that you are going to be 30 this year,\” she says. \”When I was your age, I was already paying your school fees.\”
Gosh, my school fees. What a waste of money that was. Here I am, no more a home-owner than I am a trapeze artist or for that matter a circus elephant, one toe clinging desperately to the very bottom rung of the property ladder thanks only to my mother who bought most of the flat that I live in. Last month she had to pay my gas bill.
That\’s Bryony Gordon. Who has a pretty good job with The Telegraph. In house columnist sort of thing.
We might take one (or even both) of two conclusions here.
Either the Telegraph pays really badly or Ms. Gordon isn\’t the greatest money manager in the world.
