Another week, another blog on the thrilling topic of home and contents insurance. As we discussed last week, the UK's cheapest home and contents insurance cover is not a subject about which I feel a great deal of passion.
My spleen doesn't rise at the thought, come to think of it, do spleens rise?
Of course it's very important. I have cover for my house. It makes sense and your mortgage company will probably request you have buildings cover anyway.
You need insurance cover for your home, and Performance Direct are without doubt one of the finest insurance brokers in the UK domestic insurance market. But other than saying, make sure both your buildings and personal possessions are fully covered and that you get a cheap quote online, or on the phone, what more is there to say? Really?
So, as we discussed last week, I've decided to write this Blog on the wider topic of 'home'. As is often the case these days I turned immediately to Wikipedia (did you know BBC TV's Nick Knowles is Sid James' son!!? No?).
Anyway, what does the depository of all human knowledge say on the subject?
I have to say it's very disappointing, having said that I somehow doubt the world's brightest brains have been working on it. Here's bit;
"A home is a place of residence or refuge. When it refers to a building, it is usually a place in which an individual or a family can rest and store personal property. Most modern-day households contain sanitary facilities and a means of preparing food. Animals have their own homes as well, either living in the wild or in a domesticated environment."

I'm not sure what I was expecting. Herds of Wildebeest wandering majestically across the plain perhaps? May be I've become Mrs. Richards?
Home Insurance, Home Insurance, we all love Home Insurance. No. Looks like I've become Michael Winner...
