This is my new plan for the future
  1. Find a picturesque location to live in
    Static
    First impressions count!
  2. Add some picturesque out buildings
    Static
    A water mill, an ice house, that sort of thing.
  3. Surround yourself with wildflowers
    Static
  4. If you can't afford to look smart, look picturesque
    Static
    The more flowers there are, the less anyone will notice anything else
  5. Get a herd of Li'l Sebastians
    Static
  6. Friendly ones
    Static
  7. Put some unicorns at the front door
    Static
    Also a suit of armour made of silver painted plant pots
  8. In fact, put statues everywhere
    Static
  9. Have some proverbs painted on the ceiling
    Static
    Preferably by Victorians
  10. Decorate with your favourite things
    Static
    e.g. grand piano, several portraits of royalty (including your house guest Mary, Queen of Scots), a fender gifted to you by the Czar of Russia, many four poster beds, lots of Spode dinnerware.
  11. Pile up old books on every surface
    Static
    One is England and Wales: to Illustrate the Military Condition
  12. Don't forget an incongruous collection of doll houses from ye olde times up until the 1970s
    Static
  13. Did I mention cake yet?
    Static
  14. 🏆
