“How do you stick it in this horrible flat?”

“This is my home Karen.  If you don’t like it, don’t visit!”

“But you used to live in such a fabulous house.  Don’t you miss it?”

“I think about what I have, instead of what I don’t have.”

“And what would that be… exactly?”

“My independence,” she smiled appreciatively.  “Possessions without happiness have no value.”

Justine realised her friend would probably never ‘get it’.

“Wealth isn’t about belongings.  If you have love, good health and contentment, you are richer than the glitterati.”

Karen looked sceptical.

Justine gave up trying to explain.
