    Live in a posh world heritage city
    Shop local or Waitrose
    Only ever make my own bread (by hand)
    Drive one the vehicles mentioned above
    Both kids at uni
    Enough quinoa/bulgur wheat/freekeh in my cupboard to stuff a beanbag
    Go to Glastonbury festival and think the price is reasonable
    Really should get the dog onto raw food

    I used to live in a converted barn in the lakes with an aga, shop at sainsbury only when I couldn’t get to booths, choose my wine by more than country or origin only eat in the better local pubs and preferred to cook from scratch.

    These days I live in a shared house, have a shared office shop where ever is open but I’m off whisky tasting later in the month with 500 quid bottles, just been to a mad art/music gig in a disused office building and ride my bikes to work. I think I’m mostly just confuseddivorced.

    I drink coffee at work, but I bring my own in, in a Harrods tin,

    My Earl Grey Tea Bags live in a Harrods tin at work (the tea was a bit mediocre, so binned it and replaced with Taylors of Harrogate).

    Yes, bread-maker

    My neighbour runs a micro bakery and delivers her loaves by bicycle. https://breadonabike.wordpress.com/about/

    I’m going to offer up this point about being, or aspiring to be, Middle Class.

    If you don’t have a little blue P in front of your Username on this ere’ website, by definition and no matter how much you argue to the contrary, you are Not Middle Class.

    😛

    We got burgled while we were on holiday in the Lake District back in November, but the burglars didn’t find anything worth stealing.

    What? You ride a Pashley?

    I put my recycling through the dishwasher before putting it out.

    we buy wine that doesn’t get drunk on the day of purchase.

    we had hummus and avacado for dinner last night.

    we have a pheasant in the freezer.

    Middle class fails:
    I drive an old ford petrol.

    old shabby cars are very established-middle class, rather than aspiring-middle class.

    Erm, yes but that copy is copy 89 and has coffee/beer stains on it and your club is the local Working Mans Club.

    I’d see them more as the White Range Rover Evoque of the forum…

    I’m a Scouser, I could have all the Spelt flour, Quinoa, Audis and Range Rovers in the world, I’m still not going to convince anyone I’m middle class.

    (pronounced class, not clarse)

    I have a TV in my living room but not in my lounge.
    The TV is smaller than the bookcase.

    I also have two dining rooms, an everyday one and a Sunday / Christmas / Birthday one.

    My wife and I have matching personal number plates on our beige people carriers.

    Does one win £5?

    Yes I feel my green 15 year old Passat estate fits in rather well at the hunt.

    What’s the best thing about Sainbury’s?
    It keeps the riff raff out of Waitrose.

    That’s about as middle class as I get.

    Got up, walked across my under floor heating for fresh coffee with Raw milk. Home made yogurt and granola for breakfast after leaving my ironing for the ironing lady. Checked the cellar for a good Malbec this evening, and selected a 4K film for streaming in the home cinema. Ocado delivered at 8:00am. Fillet steak for dinner on the Range induction and new griddle.

    Leave house via french doors, pat my border terrier goodbye and go to my bike garage – deactivate my CCTV and alarm – study Turner fleet and enve wheel bag 😉 and then decide against it and head off to work (film production company) in my ahem Fabia. Rumbled. 😉

    95% of that is true – but I did ride to work.

    I call dinner Tea and live in a semi, and I am not married. So working class big spender.

    selected a 4K film for streaming in the home cinema

    Fail. It’s a media room.

    Oh, you have a TV? How terribly uncouth.

    Of course, it really makes the recipes in Nigella’s books come to life when we can see them being prepared on TV

    Oh how quaint having a ‘Televisual device’. I suppose not being able to have a grand piano in ones dwelling (due to it’s tiny size) one has to be able to entertain ones self somehow.

    Malbec with a fillet? I’d dig out one of my older Zinfandels.

    Middle class sits in his conservatory with a rake and a flash light

    Lower class falls sleeps with his playstation

    I own three labrador/poodle ish dogs. My wife is well alongside the businesses of horse ownership and maintenance. One of our cars is willfully old and knackered but mechanically very sound and dedicated to the exclusive transportation of dogs and bicycles. We have a desirable postcode (so I’m told). It has been less than one week since I last had an Amuse Bouche and I’m afraid I very much enjoyed it.

    I’d still like to think I’m working class because I know deep down I am.

    I love Waitrose.

    Keeps the riff raff out of Booths.

    Himalayan pink table salt.

    And I have recently acquired a taste for craft sour ale. (Took a bit of effort this one!)

    that’s not middle class, you’re trying to be a hipster.

    I have a 94cm computer screen (and bigger TV), have an mtb with a silver aluminium frame, shop in Lidl, have too few aspirations to consider going out to work, wear sandals all year round and don’t own a watch… underclass.

    I spent two hours today on a conference call with our lead business strategist and management consultancy about our approach to preparing the agendas for our quarterly Strategy Team meeting but we didn’t get finished because the call degenerated into a discussion about the best place to breakfast in Berlin.

    I often have no idea what I do for a living.

    Get a job working in social work, social care or social housing and you’ll realise that you’re pretty far from the real underclass in this country.

    You’ve saved enough money before normal retirement age that you don’t have to work – rather than spending as you earn on pointless bling. You have your own renewable power system. Horribly middle class.

    this country

    I’m sure Edukator mentioned, maybe once or twice, ages ago…he doesn’t make a big deal of it…that he doesn’t live in this country.
