I'm always very aware, when I spend £100+ on a weekly shop for two people, that we are lucky. I remember how it was to live on benefits and to try to rustle up a few pence so I could buy bread for toasting, and beans. I'm glad in a way that I have those memories of living hand to mouth because although it was damn hard at the time, and I spent ages lying in bed terrified of being evicted, it makes me realise how very lucky we are right now that if we really want something we can pretty much just buy it.

But I don't feel "rich" at any time.
