Back to the future

August 15, 2009

I’ve just been to a visit in a lovely Swedish home.

The house had running hot and cold water, a fridge, central heating, telephones, electricity in every room, a lift, a bathroom with both a tub and a separate shower and toilets.

Well this might not sound too impressive but if I tell you the house is now a museum, kept the way it was built and lived in, in the 1890s you might be a bit surprise, as there are still a lot of households in England with much worse living standard.

This should mean by the year of 2130 the Brits can live like kings/an average Swede. There something to look forward to!
