A man from Derwen Fawr is trying to convince everyone that this is the weekend he’s going to tackle all of his jobs around the house.
Pete Bowen, 36, has been frustrating his family with empty promises to carry out his designated chores for months, persistently claiming he’d do them all in the first couple of weeks of April.
Pete said: “A few of the guys in the office were asking me about weekend plans. I said I’d be in the garden with the power washer, a pot of varnish for the decking and an upbeat whistle.
“After that I’ll paint the porch and get up the old ladder to paint the wood around the bay window. I’m going to pick up some one coat paint, but I don’t mind doing two coats to do the job well.
“The gate out the front is a bit rusty, I’ll tick that off the list. WD40 the doors, change the light bulbs and unblock the sink in the utility room. I reckon I’ll get it all done by midday Saturday then the weekend is my lobster.
“A couple of people have said it’s sunny this weekend, hottest weekend of the year. That definitely won’t distract me.
“I can’t see me being drawn into walks down the beach or sat in a beer garden, not this weekend. Maybe one or two jobs may slide, but it’ll probably be raining next weekend. I can paint in the rain if I need to do a little catching up.”
Pete’s wife Theresa added: “No fucking chance will he do anything this weekend. I’ll be lucky to get him up Saturday morning. Same shit, different weekend.”
