A MIDDLE-CLASS man has hired a working class tradesman to build a snowman in the back garden with his beloved children.
Julian Cook, from Leamington Spa, has booked the tradesman to construct a five foot snowman while his children play and laugh and he catches up with office emails.
Cook said: “The thing about magical childhood memories is they only take a few seconds to capture, but there’s hours of prep.
“I’m a busy man, so Wayne from WH Construction will build the snowman then I’ll nip out and capture the magic on Instagram at the end.
“It looks great in the marketing brief, but the reality of building a snowman is scraping around with frozen hands while the kids get bored and go in and watch telly.
“I commissioned the snowman, it’s my creative vision. I have simply outsourced that vision to a technician.”
The project is expected to run over deadline and over budget, but builder Wayne Hayes explained: “We’ll struggle to get some of the parts we need and I’ll have to collect a top hat and a pipe from Coventry.
“But honestly you won’t find snow craftsmanship of this level at a better price.”
