A man who thought the whole snow, winter nonsense was over has had to bring his hat back out again.
Peter Thape (38) from Lancashire had folded his woollen hat away after a spectacular and busy few weeks, in which the hat performed admirably.
But Thape had got cocky over the last few days, and put his winter friend away for the summer, thinking that the two would not meet again for some time.
‘If I’d have known that I would have needed to get my hat out this morning, I’ve had set my alarm for a little earlier,’ admitted Thape.
‘It’s knocked my timings for the whole day,’ added Thape.
