Bryan groaned when he saw what Oscar had bought.
"Well, that's a White Elephant if anything is! NO-ONE, I repeat NO-ONE has a house big enough to accommodate that monstrosity - all the big houses are listed Grade 2 - you haven't a hope of re-selling it". "A Folly" said Oscar firmly "A Folly for Marianne to sit in and contemplate life." "Really" Bryan was completely exasperated by now, "It isn't as if she hasn't got a whole huge Conservatory to contemplate in! And she hasn't got much spare time for a good old contemplation either, with the little twins not yet at school" Oscar snorted and tossed his expensive hair so it settled fluffily and exquisitely on his head again. He didn't like to be in the wrong and he certainly felt that he might have made a Big Mistake, but he would never admit to it in a hundred years.

The fireplace may be OTT, but it's magnificent in its own way. What a shame there isn't a house suitable for it!

Thank you, Sarah. I'm not quite sure where this tale is going to go but I think I will have to do some creating of a folly, which could be fun.

ROFL! So witty and I love "Oscar snorted and tossed his expensive hair so it settled fluffily and exquisitely on his head again." I don't know WHAT to say about the fireplace!

Stately Home style, they are often oversize and look good.

It is rather exuberant.
