in consequence of the missive, Not very realistic, penned by Barbara
Clearly itís unrealistic financially. I guess I was wondering if itís also unrealistic because she has no right to be doing it in the first place. The author shows a number of times that itís financially unrealistic (in the text you quote) but doesnít seem to poke fun at her for the presumption of making plans for a house she doesnít own. So I wondered if thatís so obviously silly it doesnít need to be pointed out or if it would have been seen differently at the time.
Somehow it seems different to me to talk/dream about what youíre going to do when you can afford it (even if realistically youíll never have that kind of money) and to talk/dream of making changes you have no right to make.
