Sometimes I am allowed to look after my niece or nephew. I have no idea why their mother lets this happen as I’m sure I’m a bad influence on both of them. Day 16 found me dragging the older sprat to a beading shop. You’d have thought that being a boy, he’d have screamed blue murder about the very thought of it all. But he took it all in his stride (see, told you I’m a bad influence) and spent quite a while choosing beads for everyone (even himself).
My exercise for the day was to wander to the bead shop and back to the car where the Old Trout was waiting patiently for us. We also walked around Lidls. At one point the sprat was sent off to pick up a box of clemantines. He returned with two bottles of fizzy orange instead. Apparently it’s “nearly the same.”
Spending time with a sprat day: Walking and keeping up with a sprat.
