Realistically speaking, Realty has been relished by real women since prehistoric times.
“Cavemen went hunting and returned to rave.
Women enjoyed the Bonfires, charcoal wall art and barbecues in the cave.
Kings and knights went to fight.
Queens and ladies held the fort in palaces bright.
Fairy tales and nursery rhymes too end at happily ever after,
which means nesting begins soon after.”
