A man who was given the simple job of blowing up the balloons for tomorrow’s Christmas celebrations has had to call it a day after the first two.
Local dad, Peter Thape thought he was quids-in with the balloon gig, whilst his wife got on with the other 200 hours of work needed to make tomorrow special.
But although Thape thought he’d piss it, he was seeing funny colours after the first balloon, and proper wobbly on his feet after the second.
‘When I was kid, I could do this for hours,’ said Thape.
‘She’ll have to do this. I’ve got presents to buy,’ added Thape.
