A husband from Treorchy has told his wife that he is planning to dispose of their Christmas tree sometime in May.
Gary Bigballs told his wife Glenda that the tree would just have to sit outside their house until he visited the skip next month.
He told WalesOnCraic:
“There’s no rush. It’s a pretty tree and the neighbours won’t mind. I’ve been running around like a blue-arsed fly since Christmas and just haven’t had a chance to get to the skip. I’ve had so much on – days when I’ve had to sit and watch telly and nights when I’ve had to do some dishes. I’ve just not had a chance. I’m planning on going to the skip sometime in May and I’ve told Glenda that I’ll take the tree then. She’s always on at me to get rid of it but it doesn’t look that bad and besides, Colin over the road has still got his.”
Glenda has been less than impressed with her fella’s lack of action on the Christmas tree issue.
“He’s a lazy shit that man. Do you want him? I’m selling him for a fiver. I’ll throw in some John Wayne DVDs too. Go on. You know you want to.”
