Katelyn has started ballet school again and joh reminded me
‘thats £3 you have togive me as well then.’ I looked sideways at him.
I took johnny up the town while Katelyn had her lesson. We went all round the town He had chips and fishcake for his tea and we make our way backwith katy’s chips under my arm. .
Well, we went all round the town and then stopped while johnny had hischips and fishcake for his tea. We made our way back toward the dance hall, with katy’s chips tucked under my arm. we passed a new second hand shop on our way. the owner sat outside in an old armchair chatting to passers by. ‘ I want to go in there’ says johnny.
‘theres nothing for you in there! ‘ I said .
Two minutes later he had talked me into buying him a skatebord for two pounds and went skating down the path on it while I paid the man. i could see at once i had made a mistake! i flew down behind him and grabbed him before he spun out into the road. I could have sworn I heard the shopkeeper and his neighbor laugh.
It was school the next day so it was left in the back garden out of the way. it was a lovely day and later that morning I stepped out of the back door with an laundry basket full of washing. one foot went on the skatebourd and I shot up the garden path like lightening! i kept my balance until I reached the gate at the end of the garden.
I was shaken but not stirred by my new experience.
Could this be the start of a new hobby?
