A Joiner has expressed his utter joy at receiving a new tape measure in a Christmas cracker, and intends to use it in the New Year.
Carpenter, Peter Thape broke his tape measure in the last few days before Christmas, and couldn’t believe his luck when Santa smiled upon him at the festive dinner.
Thape will take his new tape onto the site next week, where he admits that jealous tradesmen could try and swipe the new tape from his toolbox.
‘The other 200 guys on site will probably want to borrow it,’ said Thape.
‘Which they can, when I’m not using it to measure the first 64 cm’s of stuff,’ added Thape.
