My mother had an endless list of things deemed common, I thought it would be fun to do her posh (I hate the word) list!
She would actually say poash just to make it sound poasher!
She also had the habit of lowering her voice a few octaves when saying anything French.
Anything French or disguised as French ie, Jacques Vert, Pâté, Croissants.
All M&S food
Colmans mixes (really)
Earl Grey tea
Any foreign holiday destination except mainland Spain.
En suite bathrooms
Anything with a hint of peach or apricot, her house was a shrine to peach and apricot tones😬
Weddings in marquees
Double barrelled surnames
Play for Today
Any food sat on top of a doily.
Being able to recite any
Alan Bennett would have had a field day.
