When I bought my house some years ago, my mother asked me just before I went on a vacation: "Dear, how is it that you go travelling and you have not changed the windows of your house?" At the time, some of the windows did not close well and considerable amount of cold air filtered in. Maybe the 'sensible' thing would have been to stay but my answer was "I prefer to invest my money on something that I can take with me when I die". And I still think the same way today.
