Your taking me out of context. Not a materialist in any shape or form. Beyond this phone I write on and a tablet slightly larger than the phone, have no telly, pc, radio and dishwasher. My furniture was sourced from a charity shop and the curtains are from the previous house owner.
Pre covid epidemic most "gaels" and "Catholics" could be found frequenting Ikea and traced home via McDonald's drive thru afterwards.
We not called a backwards society for nothing.
