Middle class family gagging to dig out wooden sleigh

A BOURGEOIS family is desperate for it to start snowing so they can show off their vintage wooden sleigh.

The Johnson family from Bath bought the sleigh with iron runners from the Guardian’s lifestyle section last December, and since then have been champing at the bit to get it out.

Mum Francesca Johnson said: “For the best part of a year it’s been gathering dust in the den, along with other purchases we haven’t had a chance to use like the eco-friendly yoga mat and the handcrafted steel drums.

“My kids have been asking me what’s the point in us owning something needlessly fancy with limited use if we can’t rub it in other people’s faces, and I honestly don’t have an answer.

“I keep telling them it’ll be worth it when the time comes. All the state school children will be sliding about on plastic toboggans from WHSmith, then we’ll glide in and wipe the smiles from their faces.

“We’ll call it ‘this old thing’ as if it’s no big deal.

“If the worst comes to the worst we’ll have to take it on our next skiing holiday then splash photos all over Facebook.”
