A Gowerton man is doing his best to hide the fact that no one in is prepared to stump up for his wife’s Mother’s Day meal.

Pete Bowen and his wife Theresa have been married for 15 years and have three children all under the age of 13, lumbering Pete with the financial and creative burden of all the gifts.

Pete said: “Its every year with this thing. Once every 12 months I’m forced to go into town alone and spend at least half an hour deciding on what 3 for 2 deal I’m going to blow £15 on.

“I want my wife to be happy, but I want her to be happy without me spending any money or doing any extra work around the house.

“I was ripped off last year when we went to an all you can eat Chinese, none of the family met the 4 plate rule to allow me to break-even, so when I saw the free meal offer I was delighted. Two of the three kids qualify for kids deals, although I reckon I can make our 12 year old look 10 in order to save a few quid.

“I just hope Theresa doesn’t get too used to all this special treatment.”

Theresa added: “I just want to get shit faced and lay in the bath all day, could you all just piss off and leave me alone now?”
