grow up in a rich family?

Talking 4 holidays a year including skiing, every Sunday at Le Talbooth, privately educated type thing.

What was it like?

Words are a medium that reduces reality to abstraction for transmission to our reason, and in their power to corrode reality inevitably lurks the danger that the words will be corroded too. It might be more appropriate, in fact, to liken their action to excessive stomach fluids that digest and gradually eat away the stomach itself.

Nah not me. Market trainers, Nicks not Nikes. Holidays was a day trip to Yarmouth when my dad had a day off work in August.

Think it did me some good, truth be told.

Does that mean you're one holiday a year away from being rich, chickers?

And no. I shared beds and bathwater with family members. Strip wash in the sink, but Imperial Leather soap- so sorta posh.

I remember getting a pair of Hi-Tec football boots. Was proud for five minutes. Then I realised everyone else had Puma Kings.

My one memory of Nicks trainers is that they were the brightest of whites, and seemingly huge.

I'm talking full on rich. 2 holidays for 2 weeks somewhere, skiing, and a British one chucked in for good measure, usually Centre Parcs because money can';t buy taste. Big detached house, private education, Dad never home, Mum never out, dinner parties, friends with Sheepshanks. That kind of rich.

Glad I didn't tbh. Being brought up in a working class family/town seems to have fared me well in life.

Plus, I didn't inherit that most middle-class of behaviours, passive aggression.

Come on. Who wouldnt want to have grown up with 2 acres, £1 a week pocket money, holidays in Cap Ferret and Rimini, a Rayleigh Grifter, and a Dad high up in the local Masons?

Sharing beds with family, so you're a Norfolk lad then?

I am not from posh stock. Think we went abroad twice in my whole childhood, once was camping in France and the other was a trip to visit family.

Not sure too many of them are about in Lowie, buh!

I know some children of incredibly rich people. One has a Scottish laird for a dad who owns a castle/shooting estate, etc. Can't say I'd like to live in that particular bubble. Getting everything paid for for you must give you such a skewed view of the world.

If you've never had anything you can enjoy what you do eventually get a great deal more :)

Lowestoft, so close ;)

Nah, my nanny and grandad had separate beds in a two-bed house so I'd share with my nanny. Same with the bathwater- there's only one lot for everyone so sharing a must!

Tbf that does sound quite Victorian now. I'm only 30 ffs.

Definitely not posh, but it was an upper middle / professional family. I've been sliding down the social and financial ladder ever since leaving home.

Has anyone ever looked at their own postings for last day or so? Oh my... so sorry.

Never that posh fella! I was sent to a comprehensive school (which my mum deeply regrets, but she was sticking to principals).

We did have a cottage in norfolk though - hence been a canaries fan and not a gooner. My guilty secret.

However, they both worked for the beeb and I had a nanny.

Go on, stick it to me!

I forgot to mention that the bathwater in question was pure peasant tears, so yah I guess so.

Certainly not me.

At the risk of going "Four Yorkshiremen" I remember having a bath in a tin bath in the kitchen, holidays were possibly twice a year at my grandparents in Worcestershire, my mum ringing clothes dry through a mangle, oh and seeing ITFC win the League.
